The battery has a little groove with a "ramp" in it to keep the battery from falling out when you open the door. It should come all the way out if you grab the 1/4 that is sticking out and pull/wiggle it a bit. I'm doing it as I type. There is a definate "catch" in the removal, but a little extra tug does the job.

My nikon D40 says my battery is dead


For the price of a battery, I would replace it. There are plenty of good quality chipped aftermarket batteries for the D40 for only a few dollars.

I had the same problem. I sent my camera to the Nikon Service Center. They fixed it within three days. They actually replaced the whole aperture frame. FREE OF CHARGE AS LONG WITHIN THE WARRANTY PERIOD.

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
