What lense are you using? you will not be able to set it lower than the minimum aperture of your lens, assuming it is the 18-55 which has a variable minimum aperture, it is 3.5-5.6 depending on where you have it set, at 18mm it will be 3.5 and as you zoom out it will raise to 5.6.

Using remote control on D40x


Set the shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. See "Shooting Mode" in the manual (pages 32-33 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy from here.

How do I use the ML-L3 remote with a Nikon d40x?


Set the shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

Press the Info button. Use the direction keys to the shooting mode (along the right side, fifth from the top). Press OK. Use up/down to select the remote modes (the two at the bottom).

For full details, refer to the "Shooting Mode" section in the D40x manual.

Flash on my Nikon D40x digital camers not working.


First look at you mode dial on the camera and make sure it is not on the setting with a picture of a flash with a cross through it. If that doesn't work in your menu see if the flash is disabled. Note: When On A Manual Mode You Need To Manually Pop Up The Flash

Nikon D40x Metering Problem


I assume this is no longer under warranty.
This more likely to be a case of not pointing the camera correctly when pressing the release if for example you press the release firmly and dip the camera down in so doing it will register a shadow the camera moves up on exposure and you get a burned image.
Try various experiments in the mode see what happens.
As regards a repair it is likely the cost would be as much as or more then a new replacement

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

Manual mode - f/number settings


It's normal. The maximum aperture depends on the lens. F/4.8 is normal for a kit lens in the middle of its zoom range. You probably could get to F/4 or F/3.5 at the short end of the range, and only to F/5.6 at the long end.

Flash not automatically opening up.


Check the flash setting in the shooting mode (on Auto). Press the "?" button twice. You should see the flash mode window. Small box on the lower left for flash settings (hi-lighted in yellow, or navigate to it). Press OK to see and change flash settings to your preference.

No pictures when in autofocus mode


I was having the same problem with my D40... but I read your post, tried switching the 18-55 lens to manual, then back to auto, and it seems to be working fine now. Hmmmm... think maybe there's a circuitry issue with the lens?
