    I've had the camera for six months with no problem. Last night, it wouldn't take a picture. When I pressed the button, I could hear a small whirring sound, almost like it didn't have enough power to be operating, yet the battery was fully charged.

    I have been having exactly the same problem. The camera works fine and then all of a sudden it will not take the photo. The same whirring sound exactly as you described.

    I got my camera TWO days ago and am having the same problem. It briefly fixed itself. Now it will not autofocus and makes the same sound. I haven't even used the camera enough nor dropped it or done anything to cause damage to the lens.

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?

Slow sync flash - nikon d40


Set the exposure mode to Manual (M) or Shutter-priority (S) and specify the shutter speed yourself. You'll have to set it sufficiently slow in order to see any difference between front- and rear-curtain.

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem


The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events. Experiment it's all about trial and error. Ray

The Nikon D40 does not have shutter release or as known cable release, but does have a wireless remote control release.

Remove the battery and reinsert.
Remove the memory card and try again
