Nixon D40 When i turn the camera on it comes up with This Battery cannot be used. Choose battery designed for use in this camera. But the battery came with the camera and is EN-EL9. Is there a fault with the battery or is there a re-set for the camera?

When I turn it on "this battery cannot be used. Choose battery designated for use in this camera"


It is not the latest camera, so perhaps the battery too is not as fresh anymore. Still, when you really can charge it and you can use it for lots of pictures one time and the next time not, is a bit strange.
I would start with cleaning the contacts on the battery and in the camera. Never use anything sharp, or anything with force.
Best thing you can use is a piece of dry cloth or cotton swab. All contacts should be clean and shiny. NO oxidation is allowed, no dust in the battery holder.
If you have electronic contact cleaner O would try a but on the cloth, but less then a drop. and after that dry and dry it, because it could speed up oxidation in the long run. That is why I normally don't advice this.
Then Nikon has a policy, to check in camera if you are using a genuine battery. They must invest to make complete safe batteries, to protect the expensive camera's and dodgy manufactures make batteries, just to sell and don't care if you blow up the battery and camera. So special the modern camera's have detectors to check the battery. I'm not sure they did the same in any update for the D40.
When you don't use the camera for a long time, make it a habit to charge the battery every few months.

My Nikon says that this battery cant be use choose the one desinated for it


You probably bought a battery that's not original and is not decoded. Nikon uses coded reading of batteries, so you can't put any battery in it. Try recharging it and test if it works.
If it's an original battery with a certificate on it, you should contact your nearest Nikon store or the store you bought it in.

My camera is telling me that my battery for my nikon d40 is not the designated one


You'll need to use the EN-EL9 battery. If you're not using an EN-EL9, then the battery could be damaged and needs to be replaced.

I connected my d40 to the computer via USB and left it on. now it is not switching on. battery was at 2 bars.


Hi,

have you tried recharging/replacing the battery?

Remove the battery & completely disconnect the camera from any cables. Now charge/replace the battery & try switching it on again. If it still fails to turn on & you have fully charged the battery then you should take it to a Camera shop for them to test. Alternatively, purchase a new battery to use in the camera.

Hope this helps
