I bought a D40 for a week, On/Off button is defected. Glad that I had an exchange. But try to flip back and forth really fast might bring your camera back to live again, poor connection is the problem.
Any people heard of the same problem? I am worry about the manufacturing quality.

I have similar problem on my D40. I think there is something mechanical with the camera's shutter button, some connections, I guess... The only solution I've found is to go to Menu > Custom Settings Menu > "AE-L/AF-L" and set to "AF". Now you can focus by AF-L button. Focusing works then perfectly.
The WORST thing is that I can't lock exposure now and that's sad :(
Maybe I can try to fix this in the camera center later, we'll see. But it takes months in Ukraine to do the fixing... Hate that!
The symptoms you are describing are indicative of failure of the camera's CCD image sensor. In other words, the camera is defective. This is something you cannot fix yourself. As the camera is only 2 weeks old, you really don't need to be contacting Kodak at this point. Instead, take it back to the retailer that you bought it from for exchange (if an online retailer, email the retailer to arrange sending it back for exchange).
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!

If it's withing 30 days, get it exchanged. I have a D70s and it's been working fine for me, maybe something with the D40x with other customers? Take it back to the store and let an "instructor" try it out to make sure it's not a setting.
It's great for the manufacturer to know about any problems so they can get a good sample of problems to help many people. Good luck.
