Why the screen on my Nikon Dx40 doesnt go on- so you cant see wha yo are pictring - so I should see only through the little lense.


The D40x works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You have to compose the picture through the viewfinder. The LCD screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. The LiveView capability allowing you to compose on the screen is a relatively new development, which Nikon introduced into their cameras with the D3 and D300, introduced years after the D40x.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the D40x works.

I have small, fuzzy, gray spot in the same place on every photo. Nikon D40.


I would first try to clean the lense. If that does not work, swap lenses and see if it is in fact a problem with the lense or more with the body of your d40.

I have a new D40x Nikon. Im trying to use it in manual mode however I can't set the F/number lower than F4.8 is this normal?


What lense are you using? you will not be able to set it lower than the minimum aperture of your lens, assuming it is the 18-55 which has a variable minimum aperture, it is 3.5-5.6 depending on where you have it set, at 18mm it will be 3.5 and as you zoom out it will raise to 5.6.

Nikkor lense


You need AF-S or AF-I Lenses. These have the autofocus motor built in to the lense. The D40 and D40x does not have an autofocus motor in the camera body itself, while the D80, D300, D3 Etc to have the motor in the camera. You can use most old lenses on your D40x, but you will have to focus them manually.
