The aperture varies according to focal length... at 18mm the lens will go as wide as f3.5, but at 55mm the lens only widens to f5.6

You might want to have a little look inside the mount on the camera body and make sure you haven't moved the little metal clip there. (I think it was on the left as you look at the open front of the camera). There was a thing on the Nikon web site about the clip and it possibly getting displaced, bent or broken. I only saw it whilst looking around about this camera just before buying it (I am a bit clumsy with stuff but mine is fortunately OK).

Hope you get it sorted.

My Nikon D40 can only be used in MANUAL mode. I was able to take photos using MANULA mode but for all other modes it says: "lens not attached" even if the lens is properly attached.


What lens are you using ?
For all functions to work you will need a cpu lens - ie; a hsm or afs lens,these are lenses with built in motors.

Also check the switch on the side of the lens is switched to (A)

Ive got the nikon d40. when i take photos close up they are blurred. there r 2 settings on the focus lense one is letter a one letter m. you have to move switch to indicate one or other. camara wont take...


The letters you're referencing is the M/A (manual / auto) focus switch. The lens has this switch and operates in Auto Focus mode when set to "A" and manual focus mode when set to "M".

You have to manually focus on the subject when in letter "M". If you do not, the result will be out of focus. From your description, it sounds like the camera / lens combination is attempting to focus and operate the shutter in auto, and focusing in manual; but due to some type of damage resulting from possible mishandling, exposure to dust, dirt or even moisture is interfering with the successful completion of the process.

You could isolate the problem to determine if the cause is in the lens or camera by simply attaching the lens to another compatible Nikon camera or placing a different auto-focus lens on your D40. The problem will either stay with your D40 or follow the lens when attached to a different camera. It is also *possible* that due to numerous attempts of auto-focusing with your D40 & lens combination, that both the lens *and* the camera have been damaged. If the problem is severe enough, the problem in the failed device could cause failure in the otherwise normally working device, too.

You might be best served by contacting Nikon Service & Support below:

You also said you lost your manual. You can download the manual for the D40 directly from Nikon in your choice of English, French or Spanish from the link below:

Changing my appiture


You will need to be in AV or manual mode to change your apperture.

AV is apperture priority and manual allows you full control of all settings on your camera.

Hope this helps!

400D total blackness


Hi, sounds like a shutter problem, try taking a picture in manual mode with an exposure of around 1 second and the aperture stopped right down (small appiture)in daylight.
when you say its not pretty i guess you mean blurred?

If your still getting a black image, take the lens off and put it in bulb and press and hold the shutter release if the shutter dose'nt open and stay open while you hold it then its certainly the shutter.

Its not your fault, all the eos cameras are prone to shutter failure
some are fine for 50,000+ shots others die within a thousand
My fingers are crossed for you that its under warranty.If not a repair in the uk can be done for around 140ukp or $200 in the US, the shutter isn't expensive (about $60) but its several hours work to replace it

Best of luck
