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

5 Answers

Faulty nikon d40

When i switch on my nikon d40 an error message "Error. Press shutter release button again" appears on the lcd. even after pressing the shutter, it does not get to display any picture. kindly help The camera was working great (no drops or mistreatment) and then the "error, push shutter release button again" came up on the screen this morning (after I'd already been using it). The shutter release sounds like there's something wrong and I can't get the camera to work at all. The folks at Ritz said I need to send it in to Nikon.

Try to change battery. After you left the camera for sometime , it freezes.

I removed my lens and put it back on making sure that the aperture ring was set properly, that did it. The second time, I locked the aperture ring back in to its proper place and it worked fine.

I just hit the bottom softly with my palm until it made a noise like the shutter was readjusting and now works with no problems!

Press shutter button again. If the error doesn't go away, take the camera to the authorized dealer repair shop.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

I had the same error message, the camera is less then a year old, however, I was taking up to 800 pictires every weekend of my kids soccer games, then a 6 month trip to the Pursian Gulf, that is when it started, I got back home, took it right in, and one year later after a few visits and calls trying to find out where my camera was, I finally got an answer back, they said I needed a new shutter which will cost $300, They said I should just by a new body for $400. What Nikon does is set that error message to pop up at about 35000 shutter releases, and you can't do a thing about it, once they hooked my camera up to thier system the said I had over 36000 shutter releases, where the average person takes 10000 a year and they want you to replace the body every 3 years....so before buying any camera, always check out how many shutter releases you can get when you buy a camera
