    thank you! problem solved.


  • corinnedore Nov 12, 2008

    Thank you, both of the recent solutions helped. I have gone through 2 film rolls and when using each of them, the camera stops taking pictures right at the 26th one. I am using DX coated film as the manual says to, but I was wondering if there is anything wrong with the film i am using or just the plain camera. Any suggestions?


  • corinnedore Nov 14, 2008

    oh man! i just got some film developed today and four of the pictures had this reddish orange blur. the recent owner of the camera says she dropped it and took i to the store along time ago and they said it costed alot to fix it. dang it! oh well, i guess my camera's broken. but i'll try and see if i can get it fixed for a reasonable price.  but thanks anyways for your help!

Try these steps:

Set camera into Manual Modes:

ASA/ISO: 200
Shutter: 125
F Stop: 4
Lens: set to M, not S or C
Now press the shutter button.

WHAT YOU ARE SEEING IS BASICALLY AN ERROR WARNING THAT THE SHUTTER SPEED IS NOT RIGHT FOR THE LIGHT CONDITION AND THE LIGHTNING BOLT USUALLY MEANS THE FLASH IS NEEDED. IF THIS IS A FILM CAMERA, IT IS PROBABLY WANTING YOU TO PUT IN THE CORRECT EXPOSURE SETTINGS FOR THE CONDITIONS. DOES THIS HAPPEN WITH ALL CONDITIONS? HAVE YOU TRIED OTHER SETTINGS ON THE CAMERA? LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED MORE HELP.

    BOY! THAT IS STRANGE! I CAME THINK OF NO REASON THAT THE CAMERA IS STOPPING AT THE 26TH SHOT. THERE ISN'T A SETTING FOR THE SIZE OF FILM, IS THERE? LIKE 24 OR 36? I DOUBT THAT THE FILM HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS. IT HAS TO BE SOMETHING WITH THE CAMERA. IF YOU HAVE THE CAMERA MANUAL CHECK IT FOR A SETTING FOR FILM SIZE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE MANUAL, GO TO THE NIKON WEBSITE AND ENTER YOUR CAMERA AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD THE ONLINE MANUAL FROM THERE. OK? TRY THIS AND SEE IF THIS HELPS.IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217

Camera won't take pictures


On page 256 of the D-90 users manual it says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction that can be cleared by releasing the shutter. On my D-90 when this occurs, I have to turn the camera off to make the shutter release. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reinstall the battery to get the shutter to release.

The manual also says that if this error occurs frequently or persists to contact n authorized Nikon service center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon,com before you contact a service center to see what tech support advises. I have heard of people resolving this problem by upgrading the firmware (camera software). Nikon tech support can tell you if this will help.

This information works for my D-90 and could work for your D-40

How do u take a picture?? everytime i hit the click button it just zooms in and out


Press the button down further. The shutter release button on these types of cameras has two modes, half way down causes the camera to autofocus, all the way down causes it to shoot. If the camera is in autofocus mode, it will not fire until it feels that is focused.

I installed new batteries in my camera. I turn the on knob and camera does not operate. Something wrong with power system Contacts are clean, new batteries Nikon N2020


"Turn the on knob"? You turn on the N2020 by lightly pressing the shutter release button. Do the meter indicator LEDs inside the viewfinder light up when you lightly press the shutter release button?

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"


You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

Remove the lens from camera.
Look inside pass the mirror, how is the shutter?
Should be flat with the film with no warp or opened shutters.

Or try this:

Lens out, set camera to M (manual mode).
Shutter set at 1 (One Second).
No flash.
800 ISO
Lnes drive pin (recessed) fully into the body, not S or C.
Fresh batteries.
Set self timer on.
Press shutter button.
Camera should blink and then shutter should be tripped.

This will also check to see if you have enough power for min. of one shot.

Nikon N5005 - No Shutter Release


The lens aperure ring must be set to the highest number, ( IE, smallest aperture, f22,f32 ) for the camera to work in full auto. Also, with the ASA set to DX, the camera will not release without film.

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
