Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

SD Card When I try to insert the SD card into my D40X the card will go into the slot as normal but it wont click into place. It's just loose inside the slot. If I turned the camera on it's side with the Card Door open the SD card would just fall out and the camera is telling me there is no card. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860


The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

Need to know how and where to insert sd card


There are usually 2 places that an sd-card can be inserted in a digital camera - Inside near the battery under the door, or a separate flap on the bottom of the camera labeled SD.
  • If there isn't a slot specifically for an SD-card on the bottom of your camera, open the battery door.
Try and locate a very thin rectangular ****. Once you have found the slot, take your sd card and push it inside the slot until you hear a click, that means it's securely in place.

MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    SD memory card was removed from D40 and uploaded to PC...then when replaced "memory card locked" shows in LCD. Switch moved, replaced and still error shows. Of course unable to take any more pix on this SD...


    First I know you've said you've checked the card's slide switch, but just want to restate this first for others with the same problem who may not know of this switch.

    Check to make sure that you didn't accidentally place the tiny locking slide switch on the side of your SD card in the "locked" downward position. The correct "unlocked" position should be slid up toward the direction of the connectors.

    If you've tried this, and it's still showing locked, it's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glint's of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

    Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position. With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, as some gunk may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.

    If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case please see the following (xscrewdriver, hope you don't mind me referencing your blog):

    Sd card won't click into place on my Nikon d60


    Check your SD card, there may be a piece of it missing. Did the same to my camera and looking into the card holder, there was a piece of SD card lying at th bottom! (I used a needle to dislodge it!)

    My nikon d40x will not connect to the computer to transfer my pictures. Any advice?


    I agree - I had a usb cable that worked fine with other devices, but not with the D40x - I changed it and everything worked fine.
