Take the lens off and look through the finder. is the mold still there? if it's not then it's in the lens. look through the lens and you will see the mold. it's usually between the lens elements and depending on the kind of mold it can be very hard to remove.
take or send your lens to a camera repair shop for an estimate before having it disassembled and cleaned.

Pictures ar blurry

If you did not drop the camera. It won't be the lens. That said, please have a close look to the lens. Is the front element clean? you could clean it with a soft cloth that is used for glasses too. But also try to look into the lens. Sometimes, when a lens is left is a moist envirement, mold can grow between two elements. The glass you see inside is not bright anymore and gets a grayish look.
When the battery is becoming old, you only can make less pictures with one charge, till it is old and stops. Before the camera could warn you the power is running low.

Do the old AF lenses for the Nikon N60 SLR fit the new DSLR cameras

Hi ericm675, Yes they will. What you run into is were one uses a auto focus lens on a newer digital such as a D40. Some of the new digital cameras do not have the drive gear to turn the autofocus on the lens. Those newer cameras use electronics. Look on your camera lens mount at 7:00 you will see the drive pin. Look on your old autofocus lens you should see a slot where that pin fits. Hope this helps you.

Turn camera on says lens error system will shut down automatically cant use camera opend the box today

If this is a new camera take it back to the store and get another one, it is still under warranty for one year.
If out of warranty, and it has been sitting in the box for a very long time try buying a new battery. Make sure it is the recommended battery. Don't get a look alike, it will make a difference.
If that doesn't work, it is more involved and needs a diagnosis for repair.

How do I clean dust inside the camera? I noticed some splotches on my photos, then looked closely at the lens and it appears there is dust on the inside of the lens.

You can't clean inside the camera. Dust inside the lens would be so out of focus, it wouldn't register on your pics unless the particle was huge. Do these splotches only happen in your flash pictures?

Lens only open partially

Lens mechanism isn't good to work properly so camera shut down the power. Try to tap the lens/ camera while power up.
If you have a memory card in the camera, take it out before turning the camera on

Lens defect: stays out of the camerabody

Finaly my husband managed to repair the lens.
By opening the lens, 4 screws at the bottom of the lens.
Inside the lens at first side everything looked fine.
By second look (my excuses for this bad English.....) a cog-wheel at the outer circle of the lens-system had shifted a few mm to the right. By that blocking the cog-wheel system. This was once noticed, easy to repair.
The camera must have been fallen the other day, otherwise I can't explain this mechanical failure.
We also foud a very small metal spring in the lens, loose. And we coudn't find the place where it should have been, where it must have been functioning?
At this moment the camera seems to work, but maybe not for a long time.
So after this 'excersise' I decided it's time for a new digital camera. The prices are better now than in 2004. For less money (despite inflation......) you buy a much better camera now.
