Check the A/M switch on the lens is on "A". And also, in the settings of the camera, make sure the focus mode is set to AF-A , AF-S, or AF-C.

Using auto focus 35-55 mm lens on d40x will not take picture but if I use manual focus, I can take picture.


It is because the lense is only an AF lense. The d40x doesn't have an on-body auto focus motor so that needs to be on the lense. I have a d60 and have the same problems. You can use the manual focus on the AF lenses; however, to use auto focus, you need to buy an AF-S lense. It's disappointing I know, but that's the price we must pay for saving on our body lol

I would check to see if the lenses work on another Nikon digital camera.Double check the A/M mode switch on both. Does it feels solid or mushy when you flip it back and forth?

I will say that both lenses use the same auto-focus gear assembly which can fail over time. Nikon only sells the assembly as a unit, so even if one of the small gears is broken or damaged, the whole thing gets replaced. You cab send them to Nikon or a trip your local camera store may be in order.

Automatic focus not working


The D40x only autofocuses with the latest AF-S (and old professional AF-I) lenses. Most traditional (screw-type) AF lenses from 1986 through today will not autofocus on the D40x. If your lens says "AF-S," you're fine.
Most lenses sold today for the D40x are AF-S, and so is the included 18-55mm kit lens. Many non-Nikon lenses from Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Sigma and anyone other than Nikon still won't autofocus on the D40x. Try before you buy, but honestly, there isn't much the included 18-55mm lens won't do.
Autofocus systems are fast, but not usually instantaneous. You have to hold the shutter down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the shutter the rest of the way. See Preventing Shutter Delay for more.

Lens will not auto focus wit my Nikon D40x


That lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus with the D40x. Nothing is broken.

A/F PROBLEM


The D40 (& D40X & D60) will not autofocus with the G series lenses. The three cameras above require a newer DX series of lenses for the AF to work.

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.

Nikon D40x AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 1:3.5-5.6 GII ED Lense Trouble


I've found the same thing with my D40x and the 18-55mm AF-S lens. I took a really close look at it and found that the mount on the lens is badly worn on all three of the bayonet tangs and one is cracked at the base. What happens in my case is that the lens has movement when mounted on the camera - just enough to stop the contacts from mating properly. Hence, no photos. Am taking it to Nikon to get it fixed. I suggest if this is your problem, that you take it to the repair man.

Nikon D40X stopped auto-focusing yesterday


I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.
