Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Problem has been short inside camera. Camera was returned to factory and repaired. Same problem occurred less than a year later. Nikon is unwilling to resolve this problem.
Have you tried the 'Menu' button? If you've turned off 'Review' in the settings menu, the screen doesn't show anything after you take a picture. If the screen doesn't come on when you push the 'Menu' button with a charged battery installed, your camera will need to be repaired.

That's because the Nikon D40x does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of
a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that
effectivly deflects the light path to the viewfinder and only to the sensor when
the internal mirror is raised. Early live preview models from Olympus had the
world's first Live View system by flipping the mirror so that the picture
preview could be seen on the rear monitor. Most manufacturers now incorporate
Live View into most of their models but most Nikon consumer models do not as
yet, apart from the newly relesed D90. The D40 and D40x are two year old designs
and therefore do not have the more "modern" specs of say the Olympus E520 or
Canon EOS450D. Most photographers trading up from a compact to a DSLR are
surprised when they cannot use the monitor in the same way. However for most
aspects of DSLR photography Live View is not something that is used all the
time, low down shots, macro perhaps being the most convenient use, but for
general photography there is no substitute for framing through the viewfinder,
that's what we've been used to doing for over half a century! Besides as pointed
out previously a DSLR is often too heavy to hand hold at arms length especially
with a long lens.

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.
