My the shutter release button isn't working

I have nikon D40x about a year. But, today when i was used my camera to take some picture, i can not press the shutter button. The shutter was jammed. Then, on the display appeared, "Error. Press shutter release button again". I don't understand what might went wrong. So, could u tell me what can i do to fix it?? Do i have to take it to the service center or i can fix it by my self>? If i fix it, but i happen again what should i do?? Last one, what might cause it?? Thx u. I really *desperately* need some help >.<"..

I'll give you a couple: 1. Is your mode in shutter priority or focus priority? Check your menus and go into the AF area to see which one it is. If it's in focus priority you will have to be focused on a subject before the shutter releases. The other setting is 'release priority' which will enable you to snap the shutter regardless if you're focused or not. If you tried to re-compose the picture you were trying to take, you may have locked in focus and then when you re-composed it was not in the same area thus not releasing the shutter.
2. 2 button re-set.

Nikon D40x has suddenly stopped working in Bulb-mode.


Did you accedentely rotate the mode dail? because as soon as your not in one of the manual modes, you are not able to decide what goes on. In auto (green camera logo) the camera does his own way.

My Nikon D40X shows an Error for the shutter release. It says "Error. Press shutter release button again." When I push it again, it keeps giving me the same error. Is there a way to fix it without sending...


Hello. I have the D40X myself and I have had success by going into the menu and locating the reset button. What this does is return the camera to the settings that it had the day it came out of the box. Joe

Nikon d40x shutter stuck


The manual (pg 112) simply, and unfortunately, states this message "Press shutter release button again. If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative".

Some questions that might help: have you had the camera in some extreme conditions, damp, sand, etc. Clean the shutter button really well. Maybe use a small air blower and clean in the shutter release creases.

In the end, if the error continues, it will need to be serviced.

Nikon d40x shutter problem


May be a weak subject to focus or the flash is not ready when you press the button.

Set the camera to auto(green) mode.Try it with a contrast bright subject for as many time as possible.
If the problem persists turn off the camera and reset the camera using the button near usb connection.

Then go to seller for replacement.

Nikon D40X stopped auto-focusing yesterday


I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.

Faulty nikon d40


I had the same error message, the camera is less then a year old, however, I was taking up to 800 pictires every weekend of my kids soccer games, then a 6 month trip to the Pursian Gulf, that is when it started, I got back home, took it right in, and one year later after a few visits and calls trying to find out where my camera was, I finally got an answer back, they said I needed a new shutter which will cost $300, They said I should just by a new body for $400. What Nikon does is set that error message to pop up at about 35000 shutter releases, and you can't do a thing about it, once they hooked my camera up to thier system the said I had over 36000 shutter releases, where the average person takes 10000 a year and they want you to replace the body every 3 years....so before buying any camera, always check out how many shutter releases you can get when you buy a camera
