Broken Flash on Nikon D40

I dropped my camera (yes outside - my luck) yesterday. I can still take pictures but not with the flash. When I press the silver button to focus the flash pops up but then it clicks. The camera still takes excellent pictures in all modes just not with the flash. Can I replace the flash or can this be repaired? Thanks!

If your under warrenty it can be repaired for free. If not, it still can be repaired. Go to Nikon's webpage, they will send and give you your steps to sending your camera. Once your done, make sure to get insurance on your cam and tracking number so you can follow it to its destination. You should get it back in a few weeks depending on how held back they are. Best luck.

I always put the flash on Auto but every picture requiring the flash comes out overexposed, even though the flash is required for the shot. Any ideas?

Nikon d40 flash won't fire


Hi,

If it clicks when the flash is already open, it seems there would be a problem with the flash open sensor. The camera thinks the flash is closed, so it tries to open it again and it refuses to fire, because firing in the closed position would blow the bulb.

The D40 flash is a bit different, but if you open it (just unscrew the two little screws in front) you'll recognize the sensor clips. Open and close the flash and see if the make contact when open.

(And DON'T fire the flash when open, or at the very least don't touch anything in there when firing or you'll get zapped.

Goodluck..

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.

If the camera is in auto mode, the flash opens anytime the camera feels that it cannot take the picture with only ambient light. You can overcome this by closing the flash once the camera opens it or using a manual mode. In manual mode, the flash opens only if you press the flash button on the left side of the flash housing.

The flash on my camera


There is no top LCD on the D40. Put the camera in AUTO mode (green icon on the dial) and take a picture in the shade. if the flash does not go o, then you have a fault. Send back to authorized repair centre.

Nikon D40 will not flash


The lightning bolt icon in viewfinder blinks when flash is not ready, this can happen if flash doesnt pop up all the way, or if flash strobe tube is bad.
