Re: I HAVE A QUESTION
Read the Manual to ensure you have it set up correctly. Not all exposures need Flash.The Flash on these camera is very low power therefore will not cover a room for example. Never the less if the camera captured the image- a reasonable image editor will enhance it to some degree.

Hi Tamara. Only a technical can tell, when opening the flash. (In your case the whole camera.) Sometimes, when you look very good, you can see the light bulb is black on one (or both) side(s).
But usually the technician would measure the high voltage on the capacitor and wheel the flash is triggered he will check if the thyristor fires. But not being a technician, please don't open the camera and never play with an open flash light, because the voltage even in a small camera can be very hight.
Depending on the age of the camera it is possible that the flash has failed, if the camera is newer and has some sort of warranty then you should be able to trade it in for a new one straight from the manufacturer.
If the flash is on and you can't take photos, it could be that the flash circuit has gone bad. Make sure the camera is focused first though, before you try to take the pictures. Many times if the camera can't focus on something, it wont take a picture.
I've had the same problem with my f810. I found the solution on a german photography forum: while pressing the flashbutton with your thumb on the rearside of your camera, push on the body of the camera under the flash on the frontside with your index. try various positions of your index and you'll see: it will open!
Sorry this is too late, perhaps it will be useful to others. I hope you used a different lens for the wedding!
You can't use the 50mm 1.8 lens on the D40x unless you focus manually. This is because the D40x only supports autofocus with AF-S and AF-I lenses. The focus motor and drive mechanism for other AF lenses was omitted to make the camera smaller, lighter and cheaper.
