Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
The camera turns on as normal but when I try to take a shot it will not function. The battery is fully charged and the camer is set on automatic. The flash will pop up but the shutter will not click.
I fixed it!! Turn the lens to Manual mode (moving to M). Twist the very tip of the lens till it unlocks.
If you twist the lens on the end far enough on the end to the right you will find it "locks". This is what is causing the screeching sound,, it's locked and can't auto focus. Twist the very end to the left till it releases. This fixed it for me.

When you pusht o take a photo does it display an error on the top screen? make sure the lens is locked in including checking the ring on the lens next to the camera base.
