Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Nikon d40 fully damaged?

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 job!

The reason is that the camera dropped to the floor and has incurred internal damage that will require repairs that will probably cost more than a good replacement camera.

I have nikon d40 with 18-55 lens. when i press capture button there is a noise(i think inside the lens) and r07 displays in the viewfinder at right hand side corner. is that a problem or its normal?


Hi there its happens when the lens not ready for work. Some how its not able to stable his focus method. That's why its stuck & you get that noise. There is a chances of lens guide pin disturbed or damaged & thats why continues failure. Its mean he inform you there is a system error. So please visit the service center for repair that. Its a very common & repairable problem. Thanks.

Camera wont turn on.


Hi there do not worry . It can be fixed. After fall down on the floor the lens guide pin is damaged or the power supply connection disconnect from the inside. That's why its not recognized the power supply. In both case the solution is visit service center they will fix it for you. Maximum charged is 40 - 70 USD. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Hi, i just dropped my nikon digital camera and it's stopped working! when i switch it on the camera computer does not work - what can i do??


You've likely cracked the board inside. DSLR's do not take lightly to drops as most everything inside of them is hard mounted to the frame which is mounted to the casing so when any physical damage is experienced it transfers to the weakest part. Almost every time the damage is the CMOS sensor or mirror system, but if the drop was serious enough it will crack the main board.
I would still have it sent out to Nikon for repair estimate, it's likely less than the price of a new camera.

My nikon d40 dropped on concrete, but there was no physical damage. However, now it wont take pictures anymore and gives a *whirring* sound when i click on the picture snap button. Any advise???


You may not see damage but obviously bouncing off cement is not good for delicate camera electronics. Some serious damage has happened to your camera.

If under warranty send to manufacturer. You will likely have to pay for repair but waranty may cover some of it. As always weight the possible costs of repair with the purchase of another camera.

I have just turned on my Nikon D40 and tried to take a picture, there is a crackling noise and a flashing question mark showing,can anyone help! as this has not happened before.


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.

Flash not working


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!
