Why won't my Nikon D40 stay in infra red remote control mode, trying to take wildlife shots, have to wait for right shot but after about 1min. remote does not work?


The infrared sensor consumes battery power whenever it is waiting for a signal. By default the D40 will time out after one minute.

If you go into the Custom Menu and select item 17, you can change the timeout to 5, 10, or 15 minutes.

Nikon d40 flash won't fire


Hi,

If it clicks when the flash is already open, it seems there would be a problem with the flash open sensor. The camera thinks the flash is closed, so it tries to open it again and it refuses to fire, because firing in the closed position would blow the bulb.

The D40 flash is a bit different, but if you open it (just unscrew the two little screws in front) you'll recognize the sensor clips. Open and close the flash and see if the make contact when open.

(And DON'T fire the flash when open, or at the very least don't touch anything in there when firing or you'll get zapped.

Goodluck..

Slow sync flash - nikon d40


Set the exposure mode to Manual (M) or Shutter-priority (S) and specify the shutter speed yourself. You'll have to set it sufficiently slow in order to see any difference between front- and rear-curtain.

You may have it turned off. Find the button with the lightning bolt and press it while watching the screen. Press until you get the lightning bolt with an "A" beside it.

check your camera's shutter speed then try shooting again. set it to different modes, try manual, increase the shutter speed to 80. don't use flash shoot in daylight. try that first... see if its still blurred. hit me back on the results.

Nikon D40 LCD screen.


Since the camera is an SLR, (single lens reflex), the CCD image sensor is behind the shutter until you take a picture. Sorry, but you cannot use the LCD to take pictures.
