Nikon D40 won't take a photo

My D40 doesn't take a photo when I press the shutter button, just a small beep. I can turn it on and view pictures, but not take pictures. What can I do?

You cannot take a picture when your camera has not been focused yet. This is done by pointing your selected focus point on your subject, then click the shutter button halfway / half-pressed until you here a beep or see a dot on the lower left portion of your viewfinder. Once you have locked your focus, press the shutter button all the way down to take the shot.

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.

Image screen on nikon d40 won't stay on


You have a short in your button board in your camera or a bad button board. Send into Nikon to repair. You can also look on Ebay for the part if your technical skills are up to self repair.

D40 menu screen problem


i'll give you 2 solutions for this one

If you are talking about the MENU that shows up on the picture regarding the ISO, FLASH, APERTURE, WHITE BALANCE and Whatnot, you need to press the up arrow or down arrow buttons on the directional keys to remove the menu on the button


but if you are talking about the MENU which you can tweak different settings you just have to do a half-press on the shutter release button which will turn off the screen.

Nikon D40 will not focus when shutter pressed 1/2 down


has the lens stuck up? put it temporarily on 'M" and try to turn the focus ring. this should be freely turning;

otherwise you may want to check the camera body to lens electrical contacts (silver).. a small dab of alcohol to a q-tip.. make sure its not that wet..then try to clean the contacts.

If you are talking about viewing the shot you just took, press the "info" button on the top of the camera (next to the shutter button), that will turn the LCD on and off.
