Sorry to hear this. Dropping something on concrete creates a high G force. Can you make sure the battery is fully charged before you put it in. If you have a good battery and all it does is blink something must have been broken. I think a D40 is a rather old camera too. Sorry I do not think I can help you. In most times a LED green blinking means it is charging. When carrying a camera you should wrap the strap around your wrist. If you do it correctly if you drop your camera it will not hit the ground. It is best to keep it from dropping on the ground.

hi Jfurbees.
this is all i could think off just to help you out in till you can get it fixed.

I don't have a permanent fix, but one thing that works is folding up a small piece of paper and holding it over the memory card while closing the cover so that the cover pushes on the paper which holds the memory card in place automatically when the cover is closed. You just have to experiment to get the folded paper the right size and thickness. Again, its not a fix, but it has worked for me.
I shone a really bright light into the SD slot and sure enough, behind the gold springs at the bottom of the card slot, was a tiny black sliver of plastic that moved slightly when I tipped the camera. About 3mm long.
I removed the camera battery. Then I got a big long sewing needle, and with some very gentle manouvering, so as not to scratch anything inside the camera's SD slot, it fell out just when I was about to give up.
After I'd got the plastic sliver out, I trimmed the splintered edge of the SD card and put it back in

this is not to say it will work for you but give it a try but this will be at your own risk.

The only thing you can do is send it to Nikon for repair.

I should add to my answer to your other post, that in a long exposure you can also fire the remote flash manually.

I can't give you specific step-by-step instructions without knowing what version of Windows you have, but it sounds like either Windows Plug-N-Play either does not know that your camera is connected or the correct driver program for your camera is not installed in Windows. Go to Nikon's website and download and install the latest drivers for the D60 and then go to the Windows Control Panel and using the Installation program to install the drivers. There should be instructions on the Nikon website.

The D40 is a low end camera, but before you discard it, I would contact the closest Nikon repair depot (see the Nikon website for the location) and ask them for a repair estimate. You will then be able to decide if it is better to have it repaired or replace it with a newer model.

Usually caused by a failure of the motor in the aperture unit.

Do you mean the Nikon D40x? The D40x does not shoot video. Sorry.

I fixed it!! Turn the lens to Manual mode (moving to M). Twist the very tip of the lens till it unlocks.

If you twist the lens on the end far enough on the end to the right you will find it "locks". This is what is causing the screeching sound,, it's locked and can't auto focus. Twist the very end to the left till it releases. This fixed it for me.

The camera is performing noise reduction. To avoid this, make sure the ISO is set to 800 or less and Noise Reduction is turned off in the Shooting menu.
See "Noise Reduction" in the manual (page 108 in my copy).

If you are using the same battery, it could be it has reached the end of life. The charger can indicate the battery is fully charged, because the voltage has reached a correct level, but still the battery can have one or more bad cells. So as soon as you start using the battery, it can lose enough energy to give this nasty message. If you put in another battery and still have the same message, there must be a serious problem in the camera.
To check your battery, just after the camera has given this message, with a multi meter. You will see the voltage has dropped at least 1,2 volt beneath the voltage printed on the battery. The typical 7 volt Nikon battery, will give 8 volt on the multi meter. But placed in the camera it will drop to 7 volt. If the multi meter reading is less then 7 volt it has at least one bad cell and should be replaced.
