Still the memory card is very suspicious. If you have another mamory card, try that one. Never open the memory card door, or remove the card when the read / write LED is flashing. Even when you have switched off the camera it could use several seconds to write the last data to the card. If you then remove is, the file it was writing will be damaged. You could try to "save" your card, by using the computer.
Put the card in a card reader connected to the commuter, and try to copy all pictures on the card to the computer. It could be there are other files on the card, because sometimes settings are saved there too. Please copy these file to. Then try to format the card (FAT 32) and after formatting the card place it back in the camera.
Then to be sure, format the card again, but this time in the camera. This imd you can be sure the card has the correct format for the camera. If that works, and the camera acts normal again, ou could place back the pictures on the card.

Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1

Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.

Faulty d40x


I would start by looking at all of the push buttons on the camera. One may be stuck down.

Error message


my camera did the same thing, lens retracts 3 or 4 times, and then proceeded with an error message "turn off and on again". I pressed the power button probably about 10 times, didn't work, so then i gave it a good smack on the top of the frame a few times while repeatedly pressing the power button and it did the trick. Hasn't gave me problems since...hope it helps

Camera powers up but lens cover fails to open


It could be some grit or sand causing the lens cover to not open, so the camera won't initialize. Try cutting a slip of paper narrow enough to slide between the lens opening frame and the lens cover. Move it in and out to clear any grit that might cause the spring-loaded cover to bind. Good luck !
