Why won't my Nikon D40 stay in infra red remote control mode, trying to take wildlife shots, have to wait for right shot but after about 1min. remote does not work?

The infrared sensor consumes battery power whenever it is waiting for a signal. By default the D40 will time out after one minute.

If you go into the Custom Menu and select item 17, you can change the timeout to 5, 10, or 15 minutes.

Image screen on nikon d40 won't stay on

You have a short in your button board in your camera or a bad button board. Send into Nikon to repair. You can also look on Ebay for the part if your technical skills are up to self repair.

Computer cant find USB drivers for Nikon d40

I had the same problem with my D40x - I changed my USB cable to a much more robust one and all my problems went away.
You shouldn't need a driver, most OS's will recognise it as an imaging device.

Will Sandisk yltra II 4gb card work with Nikon D40?

I assume you mean Sandisk Ultra..and the answer is Yes it will work fine.

A good choice card also..

Just beware that some computers will need the SDHC reader.
For example my SDHC cards can be read in XP without the reader but my Vista machines need the reader.

Good luck and happy shooting :-)

Upgrade to D60

Hey mcheng,
Since I am assuming you have opened the D40 the store can charge you a 15% restocking fee, but with an exchange they rarely do. Without the restocking fee you would just pay the difference between the two cameras’ prices. Remember the return/exchange period on digital cameras' is 14 days. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
