Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Make sure after popping up the flash, you didn't change the mode into "no flash" mode....an easy way to check is put the flash back down, then proceed to take another photo. If the flash pops up again but did not flash, you have a faulty camera (assuming battery level is at least until the 1/3 mark).

Not sure if you try fresh Alkaline battery. Try it if you havn't already. Fully charged batteries, how do you know it fully charged? The "charger said so"? Your batteries or charger might give you a fault peak reading. Try fresh battery or AC adepter and go from there.

SOURCE: Flash won't fire
If it clicks when the flash is already open, it seems there would be a problem with the flash open sensor. The camera thinks the flash is closed, so it tries to open it again and it refuses to fire, because firing in the closed position would blow the bulb.
Here's a <a href='http://photo.net/bboard/uploaded-file?bboard_upload_id=42254384'>photo of the sensor in a D70</a>. The D40 flash is a bit different, but if you open it (just unscrew the two little screws in front) you'll recognize the sensor clips. Open and close the flash and see if the make contact when open.
(And DON'T fire the flash when open, or at the very least don't touch anything in there when firing or you'll get zapped.
