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.

Nikon D40 Autofocus really slow


Have you tried changing the batteries. Sometimes even now batteries are not up to their stated voltages.

No autofocus


We tried the same lens on another Nikon (D90) and auto focus did not work.
We mounted a new set of lens on the original D40x, and it worked.
Turns out the 2 year Nikon lens (18mm-135mm) was bad. Nikon lens have a 5 year warrantee. The lens will be sent back to Nikon with no service or shipping charge.

Thanks,
K

My nikon d40x will not connect to the computer to transfer my pictures. Any advice?


I agree - I had a usb cable that worked fine with other devices, but not with the D40x - I changed it and everything worked fine.

Dropped my Nikon D40x, Pictures dark, won't let me go into manual settings.


You will need to send it to Nikon to get the camera checked out - there is nothing user-serviceable that you can do.
Basically, you have broken it. Take more care with your expensive toys... use the strap, buy a silicone jacket, etc.

DROPPED NIKON d40, now my pictures are all dark


First u have to reset the camera,go through the menu and select reset and yes. the camera will take default settings.Try now.

Reset the camera opening the connector cover.

You try with a different compatible lens .If works we have to change the lens.

Remove the battery and get fully charged .Operate all switches for some clicks. then put the battery and try.

Then u have to consult a mechanic.
