"Infomation box comes up in my viewfinder monitor when I am trying to look at photos I just took."

I just took some phots today and when I touch the playback button in the very top left hand corner. When I did that an information box containing camera informtion came up and it covers the pictures where I cannot view them. I am fairly new to my D40 although not to Nikon. I have not used the camera that much and it is not that old. I am not sure how to get it off there or if there is a more serious issue. Any help or suggestions would be great.
Janis

The four -way pad/controller has two behaviors when the camera is in playback mode - pressing left-right will cycle through the photos while pressing up-down will cycle through the info associated with the photo, eventually showing the photo full-frame instead of thumbnailed. The controls described could be reversed depending upon menu setup. Try it both ways.

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.

THANKS so much, that did it. I thought maybe I had pushed a button somewhere when changing the lense out, and that was it.
