Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

New Camera can't set the language

I got a new Nikon D40 today and put the memory card in before setting up the menu. The menu comes up in Japanese. After looking at the manual I see the menu to choose a language only comes up the 1st time you turn the camera on. I didn't get that menu. I guess because the memory card was already in. Don't know. Is there some way to get this camera set to English? Thanks, fayrae

Language set up

Push the Menu button. Scroll to the Setup menu. Language on that menu. Unfortunately the menus and everything else will be it the foreign language until you reset it. If you have trouble and can't figure out or find someone who knows the language your camera is set to, contact the Foreign Language Department at your local college or university.

In case you mean changing the language in the camera, than you can do this by going to: Menu/Settings/Main Settings/Language Settings. From there you can change the language to your preferred language. I also have the user manual for this camera, in case you need it, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Nikon strongly recommends using the digital camera to format PC cards before use in the camera. Formatting in the camera ensures the proper settings and will give the most reliable operation. Cards can also be formatted using a computer, but the "File System" setting must be changed to "FAT" before formatting (see screen shot to the right. If left at any other setting the card will not work in the camera.
Cards can not be formatted using a Macintosh computer.

My S 304 has came to me with setting of language to Japanese, I wana make it English, Pl help me

It appears that the camera comes in different versions, depending on the region. The "western" version has English, German and French language, but not Japanese. If you camera has Japanese menu, it is probably intended for the Asian market. It may not have English menu.
You can switch language like this:
Press Menu/OK, select the far most right option (Set), select the top option (Setup), press Menu/OK.
Select the second lowest option (laguage) (the lowest being Reset),
use > to display available languages. Use up- or down arrow to select the language and press Menu/OK.

SDHC - Nikon D40, can't reformat the card!

I am not sure but I think those memory cards have a lifetime warranty and there is a phone number on their website.
Have you tried to reformat the card using your computer and the software that came with the camera?
When removing the memory card, you have to be careful not to touch the gold connectors on it, any static will ruin the card.
Hope I helped a little.

Access light is blinking.

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!

D40X: can't access menu with card in camera

Try "Custom Settings Menu" -> "06 No memory card?".
Does it have any influence?
