May be a weak subject to focus or the flash is not ready when you press the button.

Set the camera to auto(green) mode.Try it with a contrast bright subject for as many time as possible.
If the problem persists turn off the camera and reset the camera using the button near usb connection.

Then go to seller for replacement.

I just hit the bottom softly with my palm until it made a noise like the shutter was readjusting and now works with no problems!

Camera won't take pictures


On page 256 of the D-90 users manual it says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction that can be cleared by releasing the shutter. On my D-90 when this occurs, I have to turn the camera off to make the shutter release. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reinstall the battery to get the shutter to release.

The manual also says that if this error occurs frequently or persists to contact n authorized Nikon service center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon,com before you contact a service center to see what tech support advises. I have heard of people resolving this problem by upgrading the firmware (camera software). Nikon tech support can tell you if this will help.

This information works for my D-90 and could work for your D-40

Nikon D40X will not take a picture when you press the shutter release button. What should I do to fix it?


is there a card in the camera? unless selected in menu to fire without card, camera will not fire if no SD card

does it say something like shutter error, turn off and on again, etc.? (this is usually caused by a dead motor in the SQ unit)

My Nikon D40X shows an Error for the shutter release. It says "Error. Press shutter release button again." When I push it again, it keeps giving me the same error. Is there a way to fix it without sending...


Hello. I have the D40X myself and I have had success by going into the menu and locating the reset button. What this does is return the camera to the settings that it had the day it came out of the box. Joe

My the shutter release button isn't working


I'll give you a couple: 1. Is your mode in shutter priority or focus priority? Check your menus and go into the AF area to see which one it is. If it's in focus priority you will have to be focused on a subject before the shutter releases. The other setting is 'release priority' which will enable you to snap the shutter regardless if you're focused or not. If you tried to re-compose the picture you were trying to take, you may have locked in focus and then when you re-composed it was not in the same area thus not releasing the shutter.
2. 2 button re-set.

Half picture shows up and top portion is black


The camera firmware should be reloaded, if this fails then the camera is likely beyond end user servicing and should be repaired by a professional.

The reason your only seeing bottom half is as the reflex mirror is opening upwards to expose the sensor ( traditional cameras opened the mirror then a shutter to expose film ) your cameras sensor is only registering or transferring the bottom half of the image because it is the image is registered bottom first to the top until the shutter closes and the mirror returns to resting position.

Your problem could be the result of firmware or a more serious issue.

Press the down arrow until it disappears. That should disable the data view.

Faulty nikon d40


I had the same error message, the camera is less then a year old, however, I was taking up to 800 pictires every weekend of my kids soccer games, then a 6 month trip to the Pursian Gulf, that is when it started, I got back home, took it right in, and one year later after a few visits and calls trying to find out where my camera was, I finally got an answer back, they said I needed a new shutter which will cost $300, They said I should just by a new body for $400. What Nikon does is set that error message to pop up at about 35000 shutter releases, and you can't do a thing about it, once they hooked my camera up to thier system the said I had over 36000 shutter releases, where the average person takes 10000 a year and they want you to replace the body every 3 years....so before buying any camera, always check out how many shutter releases you can get when you buy a camera
