Try re-setting the camera? On the D40 it is 'Menu' scroll down one to Custom Setting Menu (a pencil) and click reset 'ok' yes 'ok' this worked for me.

I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.

Make sure the lens is set for the largest f number on the aperture ring. there may be a lock to prevent the ring from turning in the future. Locking the lens of the largest f number allow the camera to set the lens through the camera. This is normal on most of the newer cameras.
If the lens does not have a move-able aperture ring, then dismount and remount the lens, making sure the lens is completely mounted and locks into place, completely lining up the contacts inside. If this does not work The camera or lens may need servicing.

If a lens has an "A - M" switch, move it to "M" to manually focus. If the switch
- M " then leave on M/A (unless you're going to be taking several or more in manual mode), as these lenses may be focused manually at any time in either position. As soon as you tap
the shutter button in M/A you return to autofocus.
More advanced lenses, like the 18-200mm, 70-300mm VR and 18-135mm, and any lens with an M/A position, may be focused manually at any time without moving any switches. Leave them in their A or A/M positions.
I hope this helps and good luck!
