    My D40 does not flash...
    The integrated flash pops up but no light at all...
    Is it any of the settings?
    I have even reseted the camera twice and nothing.

    PS. Camera was in the 1st day of working:(
    any solutions or tips?

    I got the Nikon D40 and the flash stopped working on the 1st day :( Where can I get a replacement? I don't want to take the time to send it back. Is there a quick replacement bulb I can purchase??

    Turn on your A/F assist and set metering to "Matrix". Check what setting you are on (Automatic[AUTO], Manual[M], Program[P], Shutter[S], Aperture[A], etc. If on P, you can adjust the exposure.

    Does the flash pop up?

I had the same problem and found this Vimeo link that shows a simple repair to an apparent common problem. The repair worked, but understand that you will void your warranty. Don't touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it; don't touch the solder points on the wiring or you'll get zapped! http://www.vimeo.com/3141400

If the flash doesnt work in Auto mode when its needed and when you switch it to manual, then you need to send the unit back to Nikon to be repaired. Its a known issue with the d40 that the internal flash breaks.

Wrong icon when selecting dynamic area


The D40 Dynamic area focus starts on the centre AF area then moves the focus to follow the subject.
The camera has followed something to the right and selected the right focus area.
This is normal.

You could select Single Area in the menu and move the area back to the middle using the rear AF Sensor Selector.

Is a Quantaray QF30 compatible for a Nikon D40 camera?


I bought this flash on craigs list today for about 30 dollars. I did research and as long as the flash you buy is a nikon HOT SHOE mount it will work. (Look on the bottom of the flash) it will say Nikon i-ttl. I am using it on my D40.

Pictures too dark. Shutter operating too slowly.


Are you in auto mode? If it is manual then it is possible that the settings are not correct for the light. You can look at the meter to see what the camera thinks about the exposure.

It sounds as if your subject is too dark. Does this happen when the area is brightly lit? Does the flash fire?

D70 internal flash not firing


Check if something is preventing the flash to pop up 'fully'. Check for some dust or other particles trapped between the flash and the body. Does the screen say 'Subject is too dark'? If so, the flash has not popped up fully.

R09 error message on nikon d40


It's a report saying that the camera is busy doing something. It can hapen when you have taken a photo and the camera is busy processing but I find it happens when in auto focus and the camera is having dificulty due to distance from subject or light. Try switching to manual focus, moving further away from the subject or casting more light on the subject.

Nikon d40 digital camera


When the camera is in auto focus mode, it will not take the picture until it locks onto a subject. If there is not enough light, the camera will "hunt" for something to focus on. Since it can't define any edges, it won't allow the shutter to release.

The D40 base model does NOT have a powered focus lever for autofocus, so if the autofocus is not working, suspect the lens.
