Hi!! The Nikon d40 fell down fell down from my hand, on a hard floor. There were no signs of physical damage at all. But ever since this incident, 1) flash does not work - I get a 'tik' sound making me feel the camera is 'trying hard' to get the flash on, but doesnt work. There were no obvious signs of flash section damage. What all should I look in to to see if the damage is localized to flash only?
My standard response: Contact Nikon USA (if you're in the US) and ship them the camera and lens.This will cost, which they will estimate up-front, but it
is the absolutely best solution to the problem. Anything else is a hack
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This could be due to either dirt/dust/debris that is blocking the inner workings of the mechanism, or some physical damage to the unit from being dropped or overextended.

In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting. Be prepared, this type of repair may not be inexpensive.

Are you using a official Nikon battery?
Is there any unusual damage or debris in the battery compartment?
It sounds like a fairly severe fault considering the crackling noises.
I'd send it to a service centre.
Hey influenza, Nearly dropping the camera should not affect the operation of the flash unless the flash was extended and you caught the camera by the flash and it is somehow physically damaged. What is more likely is the camera is either set to a mode that doesn't allow the flash to operate, or the flash is set to auto off. Directions on how to turn the flash on or off start on page 34 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps! http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/noprint/D40_noprint.pdf Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
The hard drive became disconnected. I took out all of the screws to the outer case (5), gently slid cover down until the small ribbon connector for the power buttons is exposed, unclip and remove. Set aside back of unit (at this point the hard drive might come with it if the ribbon has come out of the back) at the top there is a two screw metal bracket that covers the ribbon connection for the hard drive. Remove the ribbon from the main unit and gently force it back into the hard drive ribbon connector. once fully seated you can reinsert the other end, replace the two screw bracket in a way that holds the ribbon down. Slide the backing back far enough to reinsert the power buttons ribbon connector and then test it before you throw in those last 5 screws.
I have also had the problem of flash not working on my Nikon D40. I
found out the problem and I made a quick video to help those who
are having this problem. Here's the link to the video: Hope this helps
