Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Nikon dx40 camera stalls and only sometimes takes photos

I have had no problems with this camera and have had it over 12 months, never dropped it etc. i go to take photos and sometimes it works and then i have a period where it won't. I hear a buzzing sort of noise, sort of like it is trying to focus but won't work, especially when i am trying to take a photo of a certain object. I took it to a camera place this morning and he really had no idea and said it may be the software? this doesn't make sense to me? what do i do now? is it broken? i can't afford a new one.

Its a ver common problem the battery you are using is not good.its working but is at the end of its life.many a times when battery cannot function properly resulting in less power to the camera then what is required.the camera cannot work properly and makes buzzing or crackling sound. in that case replacing the battery will solve the problem.also check the lens part which moves in and out.--sometimes the lens is **** up and jammed and this can also cause the camera to not work properly.but the 99% chances are of faulty battery.

    My camera is doing the same thing. Sometimes I have a great picture set up and I press the button and it just creaks at me. And it won't take the picture. If I step back or point it at something else it won't take the picture. Then 5mins later its fine. Is there any way of testing the battery or is it worth just buying a new battery in the hope that is what it is?

My nikon D5200 seems as if its flash and shutter speed is out of time resulting in my photos being to dark to see or to bright to see


check to make sure auto bracketing is not turned on. Otherwise send it to Nikon as it is under warranty (assuming you didn't drop it etc)

Computer settings for dx40 nikon


It doesn't matter to the camera how your computer is set up. In fact you can use the camera without having a computer at all.
If you're asking about how to set up the computer so you can download photos from the camera, the best way involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

Camera constantly takes blurred pictures


Appears that the auto focus mechanism is not working, This anomaly is most obvious in lower light situations when focusing is much more critical.

If the camera was new and two months old I would either return it for another one or have Nikon repair the lens assembly under the terms of its warranty.

Can someone help me on my nikon D3100 freeze problem?


New battery that is fully charged. My Nikon D3100 has had the problem of freezing every ten or so pics since it was a couple of months old. Still does it today after six months of use. I take a few hundred pics with it when shooting but only shoot once or maybe twice a month.

Have to take the battery out, put it back in etc. each time. Sometimes it allows me to power off and then back on but either way it's a pain in the rear and a serious "time waster".
