    Hello there. I think it is normal. I have just bought one for my wife for Christmas and have noticed the exact same fault. I have a few digital cameras and although the 3100 is an excellent machine, there seem to be a few compromises to keep it within the cheap price bracket. One of them seems to be the screen. I think how these screens work is that there maybe one light source in the upper left area which then is able to light the whole screen from. It is definitely an oversight on Nikon's part if there's a few people having this issue. It certainly won't affect the images in any way, it's just that it's slightly distracting on dark images. On tests a couple of reviewers said the screen was lacking a little and i'd agree. Hope that helps.

    THE BLACK IS ONE OF THE SHUTTER CURTAINS! SPECIFICALLY IT'S THE REAR SHUTTER CURTAIN SINCE IT'S AT THE TOP OF THE PHOTO.

    YES, IT IS A PROBLEM WITH ONE OF YOUR CAMERA SETTINGS!

    RTFM, AND LOOK FOR X-SYNC SHUTTER SPEED.
