if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons : 1) defective switch. 2) defective flex cable. 3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.

Remove bottom cover and locate the 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace . The capacitors that go into these models start leaking after 10 years.

I think the timing of the shutter winding gears has slipped a tooth or two. look at the picture in this image:
Near the motor drive coupler at the bottom you will see a blue and a white gear. Look closely at the blue gear and you will see a line on the top of it. That line needs to be pointed at the center of the white gear when the camera has been released and ready to be advanced again.
If you wish to proceed, I will tell you how to re-time the gears.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

Sounds like some software error.
Try updating the firmware for your Nikon D40 camera.
