If you haven't already done so, go to the Setup menu (the wrench). Under CSM/Setup Menu, select Full.

Now go to the Custom Settings menu (the pencil). Find Auto off Timers. Long will display image review for twenty seconds. Custom will let you set it for as long as ten minutes.

This is all under "Menu Guide" in the D40 manual.

D40 menu screen problem


i'll give you 2 solutions for this one

If you are talking about the MENU that shows up on the picture regarding the ISO, FLASH, APERTURE, WHITE BALANCE and Whatnot, you need to press the up arrow or down arrow buttons on the directional keys to remove the menu on the button


but if you are talking about the MENU which you can tweak different settings you just have to do a half-press on the shutter release button which will turn off the screen.

Faulty d40x


I would start by looking at all of the push buttons on the camera. One may be stuck down.
