Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
"error. press shutter release button again."
i started getting this message today. it isn't doing it all the time but all the pictures are coming out really dark...even with the flash AND tons of natural light...please help...i'm going on vacation on saturday and i'm scared that my camera is messed up!
The guy at the camera store is probably right. The aperture is controlled by a small leg that juts out from the lens mount. This leg/lever moves up and down to open the aperture. It could be stuck or broken. Try holding the lens (small end pointing towards your face) and peer into the lens as if you were taking a picture. Find the aperture guide (a small rectangular lever) and slide it up and down. You should see the aperture blades open and close. If they do, the camera is malfunctioning and in need of repair (warranty?).
