Setting it to portrait mode should do it. Hold down the shutter button, it should be working. I'm not overly familiar with nikons, but otherwise it'll be in a menu mode if you switch it to a more manual setting. Probably under shooting mode. Set it to continuous shoot

Long lens won't focus when zoomed out


I trust you are looking at something with sharp contrast, like a light pole. Lens can't focus without something crisp to see. If other lens work fine, than this lens need a trip to a lens repair shop. I use KEH Photo. Honest, reliable and cheaper and faster than Nikon. A visit to your local camera store might be in order, but if they send it in for repair for you, it will cost more.

How do I change between the optical viewfinder & the rear screen on my Nikon D 40


You don't. Nikon introduced the LiveView feature with the D3 and D300, introduced years after the D40. The rear screen shows you the menus, shooting information, and picture review, but cannot be used to compose your pictures.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

Why does or how to take pics looking threw the monitor? It shuts off fast. Is there a certain set up?


The D40x works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You view and compose through the optical viewfinder. Nikon introduced the LiveView capability into their DSLRs with the D300 and D3, introduced well after the D40x. On the D40x, the monitor is for menus, settings, and review of previously taken photos. It cannot be used for shooting as on more recent cameras.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Monitor screen can not appear photos before shooting


That's the way the D40 works. The monitor is for menus and picture review, not to show images before shooting. Nikon introduced the LiveView capablitily with the D3 and the D300, introduced after the D40. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, giving you the image through the viewfinder.

You don't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century. Only more recent dSLRs (Nikon started with the D3 and D300) have the LiveView capability that lets you handle your dSLR as a point&shoot.

I have a NIKON D40 and want to shoot on MANUAL MODE and taking pics of my son's basketball game and NOT getting clear pictures, what settings do I use for that?


Based on the following descriptions: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/ND40/ND40MENUS.HTM
I'd say use the little person running, or 'Sports' mode. This basically chooses a high (fast) ISO and fast shutter speed, in attempt to let the most light in and reduce the exposure length to reduce blur.
Hope this helps.
Oh, FYI, manual mode is very useful...if you find a shutter speed and f-stop (aperture) that works for your setting -- which can be seen in the viewfinder or on the status LED on the top of the camera -- you can set the camera to those settings and know that the shots should turn out well, where any 'automatic' type setting is very convenient, it has the potential of adjusting the lighting based on the wrong 'subject' of the photo and leaving you with a under or over-exposed photo. Best of luck!

No image in sports mode


Sports mode gives you a high shutter speed. Continuous just allows the camera to keep taking pictures as long as you hold the shutter button and keep the autofocus moving.
You need very high Iso capabilities (6400+) and very fast lenses (f1.8, f2.0, f2.8) to shoot indoor sports and night games under lights and stop motion without a very powerful flash system. Standard consumer stuff just can't do it and even with a good flash it cannot work very far.
You can set the camera to night mode and it will give you your highest iso and slow shutter speeds but you will end up with motion blur.
I shoot a D300($1600) and a 70-200mm F2.8($1900) and I can just barely get away with it. To do it right cost about $8000! I'm now professionally shooting just to pay for the next camera. Hobby too Hell in a hurry.

Shutter speed actomatic change


If you move from mode to mode, the camera will remember the settings from the last time you were in that mode and reset to them. This is handy if you are in shutter priority shooting sports at a high shutter speed, and then want to take a picture of something that's not moving fast, like the crowd. You just pop it into aperature priority with a remembered settings of a higher f stop.

I use this to shoot the scoreboard, which has a fairly slow refresh rate and usually comes up blank if I shoot it at a shutter speed higher than about 1/100.
