Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I bought a nikon d40 about a month ago, and up until about a week ago, it was working perfectly.
and now, about half of the time when i press the shutter release button halfway down to focus, it will make a really quiet clicking noise, and obviously not take a photo. i try turning it off for a while, and focusing it on distant and close to objects, but it still won't focus. it will sometimes focus but only when it wants to! and it means i can miss shots.
i have tried taking the lense off and putting it back on but the problem is still here
any ideas anybody?
could it be a problem with the lense or camera? i have seen quite a few stories like this and it makes me think that this problem is not uncommon with the d40.
if it is a problem with the lense/camera, then what would have to be done to fix this?
I have similar problem on my D40. I think there is something mechanical with the camera's shutter button, some connections, I guess... The only solution I've found is to go to Menu > Custom Settings Menu > "AE-L/AF-L" and set to "AF". Now you can focus by AF-L button. Focusing works then perfectly. The WORST thing is that I can't lock exposure now and that's sad :( Maybe I can try to fix this in the camera center later, we'll see. But it takes months in Ukraine to do the fixing... Hate that!
