Slower shutter speeds is the key. 1,2,4, or 8 seconds type exposures, longer even. With that in mind, you'll need a good tripod to keep the camera steady.

Whats nice with the digital format is that you can see your results and adjust speeds as needed to give the look you want

Canon 40d will not take pictures

1) CF card in camera? Won't shoot without one

2) Does mirror go up?

3) Canon had a run of bad motors for this model - if mirror does not go up, then it is the mirror motor. If mirror goes up, shutter will not fire, press release again then the mirror goes down, the shutter motor is bad (same model motor). If mirror goes up, shutter fires, both blades travel together/no exposure, probably the shutter is bad.

Canon EOS 40D shoots on its own.

Sounds like a software issue, try to upgrade or reload the firmware.

I hope it helps :)

Can not play back image. Box with yellow ? (question mark)

Possibly corruption of the card - if you are sure the images are backed up, then format the card.

Not shooting

Are you using a genuine Canon grip? I've experienced contact problems with generics. That's not to say that you couldn't have the same contact problems with a Canon grip.

Exposure problem

Your 40D requires that you use an ETTL-II type flash like the Canon 380-EX. What flash are you using?
