The flash is not in sync with my nikon d40 anymore. It fires first. Pictures come out dark. The camera itself takes great flash pictures


It sounds like you're trying to use the SB-600 off camera, as a slave flash. While the SB-600 does indeed have slave capability, the D40 does not have the ability to function as a commander. Thus, the SB-600 is being triggered by the D40's pre-flash.

As stated above, the D40 does not function in commander mode. You can mount an SB-800 or SB-900 flash unit, which will function as a commander as well as a flash. Or you can mount an SU-800 commander unit.

Alternatively, you can switch the D40 to manual flash mode so as to eliminiate the preflash. However, you will then have to calculate the proper exposure yourself.

Nikon d40 motnior blank while taking picture.


That's entirely correct. Live view cannot work on SLR's whilst the photo is being taken due to the requirement for the mirror and live view sensor to flip out of the way during image capture.

Live view on SLR cameras is a misleading description, it's really a live preview instead.

Internal flash not firing on nikon d40


Make sure you have read your user manual and know how to use the camera, including how to use the flash.
Go to the menus set all settings to factory settings. Later you can set them the way you want. Make sure all settings are set to make the flash work when you want to use it. Some settings will turn off the flash.
If you need technical support or repair consider calling Nikon. Go to nikon.com and browse to the support section, find the repair and the toll free number. Call and see if you can get help on your camera.
Nikon has an up-grade or trade-in program for refurbished units if your repair is too expensive.

How do I get my nikon d40 to take Black white pictures?


You CAN!!! shoot in b/w with a d40, the only thing is you can't shoot in auto mode it has to be manual , aperture priority, or shutter prioirity. Go into menu - shooting mode - optimize image. you'll find it in there.

Nikon d40 shutter not open


What are the exact symptoms? What have you tried already? It's impossible to tell from your description whether the shutter is the problem. If it is the case, then you'll need to get it waranteed.

I assume the lens cap is off, you have the lens attached correctly, the AF is working ok (by default the shutter won't fire if correct focus hasn't been obtained.) and you have a memory card inserted in the camera?

Auto focusing problem


Your camera is only compatable with AFS-type lenses because it has no screw-drive motor.  You can only use AFS Nikkors and Sigma HSM lenses (the lens actually has a motor inside).  You were misinformed.  Bring the lens back and ask for a refund. Take that money and purchase a compatable lens somewhere else.
