Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I have a 4 month old d40 that will pop up the flash but will not fire. When I look back at pictures it says that the flash was used but it never goes off. Help!
I also have a new (May 7,2008) D40. The flash worked for 2 days but no longer works. The flash pos up but no flash under any conditions. I P setting the flash? is blinking in the viewfinder.
If it clicks when the flash is already open, it seems there would be a problem with the flash open sensor. The camera thinks the flash is closed, so it tries to open it again and it refuses to fire, because firing in the closed position would blow the bulb.
The D40 flash is a bit different, but if you open it (just unscrew the two little screws in front) you'll recognize the sensor clips. Open and close the flash and see if the make contact when open.
(And DON'T fire the flash when open, or at the very least don't touch anything in there when firing or you'll get zapped.
