When you get a flashing EE, it means there is an Eror somewhere. Most cameras have a botton you press to reset it. Usually it is the battery check button. Try that. Also try taking the lens off the camera, unlocking the aperture ring, remount the lens and then lock the aprture ring to the minimum F stop. I think this should solve the problem.

Unfortunately, this lens is not supported by the D40 due to Nikon's unfortunate decision to leave out the autofocus motor from this camera. This is why I tell folks not to waste their money on the D40 - access to the many, many, many lenses that Nikon has made over the years, many of which are available used for a substantial savings, is lost on this camera. The only Nikon lenses that work are AF-S lenses, and some third party lenses that have their own internal motors. I got a list of Sigma lenses that are compatible with the D40 for you:
The list of compatible Sigma lenses for the Nikon D40 as of the current date is as follows:
Sorry for the bad news. The cheaper thing at this point may be to sell the D40 and get a D80. I personally have a D70S, but that is no longer made.

Sorry, but it's not a DIY fix as the lens will need to be collimated. Without this, you'll just be guessing the correct position and alignment for the loose optical element and won't get your image quality back.
Professional repair and re-collimation will not be cheap though and the lens may not fully recover its former sharpness, so it may be time to let your faithful friend go.
I hope my answer has assisted you in choosing a course of action; please take a moment to rate my reply.

Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Sony camera. Assuming you get the Sigma lens with a Sony mount then yes, it will be compatible with the Sony alpha.
