Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Camera not functioning

I had my Nikon D40x plugged into my computer through the USB output and had my camera turned on to download the pictures to my computer. I left the camera on longer than necessary and now it won't work. I've tried taking out the battery and charing it in my MH23 Quick Charger but it's still not working. Is there any way to fix this problem without buying a new battery? I have this problem too. But I didnt connect it to the computer, I've always used the memory card reader when I've put the pictures on to my computer. I've had the camera for a month! I charged the battery for the second time, and now the camera wont start at all! I've tried pushing the restart button, no reaction. With a brand new camera this shouldn't happen. I'm so upset. :'(

Sometimes these batteries go dead but still show a charge in the camera but it is not enough to do anything with. I suggest you go to the nearest camera shop and see if they can check it for you.

USB will not recognize Nikon D40 Digital Camera


You asked about the USB connection between your camera and the computer. First, be sure you are using an approved USB cord that came with your camera. Nikon gets a little finicky if you use an off brand. Next, be sure your USB outlet is working on your computer. Plug something else into it to be sure it's functional. Next, reboot your computer and shut off your camera. After reboot turn your camera on to see if the computer now recognizes your camera.

It would help to know what software you're using for the post processing. Some software has an option to disallow uploading of duplicate photos. This could be the case if you've already uploaded these same images previously. You might want to check for that.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

Nikon d40x pictures wont upload


forget about the cables. The ends tend to be filmsy, and the connectors can be suspect also. Get yourself an SD single card reader. They are direct plug-in to any USB slot (no drivers or software required), and only cost about $15 US.

Camera not functioning


There is a reset hole under the cap the covers the USB connector.  Use a straightened paper clip to gently press in and it should reset the camera.   I hope this works.
