Brought my D5100 home today and so far really like it but for one problem!! The camera worked fine out of the box, I took a few pictures and was exploring the menus and other features when the monitor quit working for some reason. The viewfinder works as it should but the monitor stays black when trying to take pictures, it does work for info, menu, and looking at pictures already taken.
I HAVE scrutinized the manual but can't see what I'm doing wrong. The battery is fully charged and I'm at a loss. Appreciate any help. TIA
