Hi,
This model has back-up battery inside located at left side of battery compartment that holds charge for error memory. Disconnecting that battery for moment will refresh memory to clear any stored bug/ error that is causing to stop camera function.
Camera will take apart in detail to access that back-up battery and professional can do that in safe manners.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

No mirror lock-up option in setup menu. actually several fields are missing including Folders, File # Sequence, Dust Off Ref Photo


In the Setup menu, select "CSM/Setup menu" and set it to "Full" instead of "Simple." For some reason Nikon thinks that most users don't need those options.

Automatic focus not working


The D40x only autofocuses with the latest AF-S (and old professional AF-I) lenses. Most traditional (screw-type) AF lenses from 1986 through today will not autofocus on the D40x. If your lens says "AF-S," you're fine.
Most lenses sold today for the D40x are AF-S, and so is the included 18-55mm kit lens. Many non-Nikon lenses from Tamron, Tokina, Quantaray, Sigma and anyone other than Nikon still won't autofocus on the D40x. Try before you buy, but honestly, there isn't much the included 18-55mm lens won't do.
Autofocus systems are fast, but not usually instantaneous. You have to hold the shutter down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the shutter the rest of the way. See Preventing Shutter Delay for more.

No settings - the SB800 is automatic on the D40x - it meters TTL.

This is a common fault with the D40x. You will need to contact Nikon for repair details.

No autofocus


We tried the same lens on another Nikon (D90) and auto focus did not work.
We mounted a new set of lens on the original D40x, and it worked.
Turns out the 2 year Nikon lens (18mm-135mm) was bad. Nikon lens have a 5 year warrantee. The lens will be sent back to Nikon with no service or shipping charge.

Thanks,
K

Flash not automatically opening up.


Check the flash setting in the shooting mode (on Auto). Press the "?" button twice. You should see the flash mode window. Small box on the lower left for flash settings (hi-lighted in yellow, or navigate to it). Press OK to see and change flash settings to your preference.

Nikon D40X inbuilt flash


If it's withing 30 days, get it exchanged. I have a D70s and it's been working fine for me, maybe something with the D40x with other customers? Take it back to the store and let an "instructor" try it out to make sure it's not a setting.

It's great for the manufacturer to know about any problems so they can get a good sample of problems to help many people. Good luck.
