You may not see damage but obviously bouncing off cement is not good for delicate camera electronics. Some serious damage has happened to your camera.

If under warranty send to manufacturer. You will likely have to pay for repair but waranty may cover some of it. As always weight the possible costs of repair with the purchase of another camera.

Hi my nikon d40x displays this message :ERROR.PRESS SHUTTER RELEASE BUTTON AGAIN. I can use menus and view saved pictures in my SD card. but cant capture picture anymore


Sounds like a dead mirror box motor to me. This is a well know problem with the D40 and D40x. It has to be replaced. You will have to give it to a Nikon service center or any camera repair shop to replace it. I could offer it for $95.00, but you would have to send it to Germany.

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.

I have just turned on my Nikon D40 and tried to take a picture, there is a crackling noise and a flashing question mark showing,can anyone help! as this has not happened before.


Are you using a official Nikon battery? Is there any unusual damage or debris in the battery compartment? It sounds like a fairly severe fault considering the crackling noises. I'd send it to a service centre.

Nikon D40 help?!


I assume the lens had the impact. The 18-55 lens has the built-in motors for auto-focus.
Try switching to manual focus (on the lens). If this works, the lens may not auto-focus anymore.
Try it and let me know.
cheers,

Nikon d40 fully damaged?


My standard response: Contact Nikon USA (if you're in the US) and ship them the camera and lens.This will cost, which they will estimate up-front, but it is the absolutely best solution to the problem. Anything else is a hack job!
