Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

On/off switch When I turn my d40x power switch off and I press the shutter release button the camera still works as if I never switched it off. Is this normal? I notice none of the other cameras I own do this.

    All of a sudden, my D40 does the same thing. However, if I set the switch between "on" and "off",( a little closer to "off"), the camera is off.

It should turn off - mine does. I suspect you have a faulty switch. Take it to a Nikon service agent, he will be able to replace the switch.

Shutter does not operate.


hiwhen you say shutter does not operate, it mean too general to answer. could you provide more detail?I will give how does shutter work. First, you press shutter button, it will activate two switchs (one is focus and meter and the other is release ) Second, mirror goes up and opening shutter curtain move up. Third, closing shutter curtain down and mirror down and picture come out. Of course there is also aperture control unit sequence.

My camera will not power up at all, My Batery is full charged. Christmas is looming and I need a camera. HELPPPP!


Try this: with camera power switch in the "ON" position, remove the battery. Then press and hold the shutter release for approximately 30 seconds. Turn power switch "OFF", reinsert battery and turn back on.
Look on bottom of camera for a very small Hardware reset switch. If one ther, turn camera on and press for about 2 seconds.

My Nikon D40X shows an Error for the shutter release. It says "Error. Press shutter release button again." When I push it again, it keeps giving me the same error. Is there a way to fix it without sending...


Hello. I have the D40X myself and I have had success by going into the menu and locating the reset button. What this does is return the camera to the settings that it had the day it came out of the box. Joe

Nikon d40x shutter stuck


The manual (pg 112) simply, and unfortunately, states this message "Press shutter release button again. If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative".

Some questions that might help: have you had the camera in some extreme conditions, damp, sand, etc. Clean the shutter button really well. Maybe use a small air blower and clean in the shutter release creases.

In the end, if the error continues, it will need to be serviced.

Nikon d40x shutter problem


May be a weak subject to focus or the flash is not ready when you press the button.

Set the camera to auto(green) mode.Try it with a contrast bright subject for as many time as possible.
If the problem persists turn off the camera and reset the camera using the button near usb connection.

Then go to seller for replacement.

Faulty nikon d40


I had the same error message, the camera is less then a year old, however, I was taking up to 800 pictires every weekend of my kids soccer games, then a 6 month trip to the Pursian Gulf, that is when it started, I got back home, took it right in, and one year later after a few visits and calls trying to find out where my camera was, I finally got an answer back, they said I needed a new shutter which will cost $300, They said I should just by a new body for $400. What Nikon does is set that error message to pop up at about 35000 shutter releases, and you can't do a thing about it, once they hooked my camera up to thier system the said I had over 36000 shutter releases, where the average person takes 10000 a year and they want you to replace the body every 3 years....so before buying any camera, always check out how many shutter releases you can get when you buy a camera
