Problems with Nikon D40

Hi, I really hope you can help!!

I got myself a Nikon D40 just before christmas. All was well for the first 5 days, it was working well and I was very happy. Then one morning I decided take some early morning beach shots, turned the camera on and got a white LCD screen and the camera wouldnt work, so took the battery out to check it, put it back in the camera, turned it on and it worked but still had the white LCD screen. If you turn it off then back on camera wont work unless you push the battery first and still have a white LCD screen!

I have taken it to my registered Nikon dealer to look at, he has had it for 2 weeks now and doesnt have a clue wants wrong, he said he's never seen a camera do this before and now I quite concerned.

Can anyone shed any light on this matter?? Please!

Many thanks

Fmay nikon d40 flash in not working..

You might be shooting with a higher ISO or in settings where the D40 meter finds enough light and doesn't activate the flash.

Try changing the ISO to a lower one, like ISO 200 and take some test shots indoors, in a darkened room.

OR, you might have the mode dial set to "no flash". That's the crossed out lighting-bolt symbol. Just set it for P or another mode and you're back in business.

Hope this helps

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!
