    i have had my nikon d40 now for a few months and like other people am experiencing the camera locking up and refusing to take pictures. i tried taking the battery out, turned off then turned on the camera but this doesn't seem to work then suddenly it will start working again when you think it won't. very odd! i will try follow the instructions from the suggestions here. i hope this problem doesn't persist.

We have a D40X and had a similar problem! 
What I did was pretty much reset everything! Take the batteries out, reset to factory settings and reinsert media card. I'm sure the other users did not do permanent damage and it may just be attempting to process corrupt data.
Hope you are taking pix again SOON!

Autofocus problem


Does this problem still exist when you have the shutter pressed halfway down?

Where's the shooting information of d80 in the larger screen?


The Shooting Information screen was introduced with the D40. The older D80 does not have it. Instead it shows almost all of the information in the control panel and/or viewfinder, though you have to delve into the menus for some of it.

Most of the settings you could change via the Shooting Info screen on the D40, you can change by pressing the appropriate button and turning one of the command dials.

The D40 was intended as an introductory dSLR, doing more handholding for new photographers, putting things into visual, menu-driven screens. The D80 was intended as a midlevel camera, allowing faster operation using more buttons. It does less handholding, but once you learn where the controls are, it actually is faster to use. (Okay, that was based on my personal experience, since I've used both.)

You have a short in your button board in your camera or a bad button board. Send into Nikon to repair. You can also look on Ebay for the part if your technical skills are up to self repair.

Error message on D40


The guy at the camera store is probably right. The aperture is controlled by a small leg that juts out from the lens mount. This leg/lever moves up and down to open the aperture. It could be stuck or broken. Try holding the lens (small end pointing towards your face) and peer into the lens as if you were taking a picture. Find the aperture guide (a small rectangular lever) and slide it up and down. You should see the aperture blades open and close. If they do, the camera is malfunctioning and in need of repair (warranty?).

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
