Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

The problem of "Lens not attached" though one is mounted

Please help me to overcome this problem. It is getting fixed if I mildly twist the lens. Will keeping away from the habit of dismantling the lens from Body helps to reduce the problem?

    Dear guest, thanks for posting a solution for me. But, isn't the camera not programmed in such a way that it will not click without a properly mounted lens?

Make sure it clicks when you attach the lens.

How do i attach my sigma lens to my nikon d300


I'm going to assume the Sigma lens has a Nikon mount. If it has any other mount then it won't fit on a Nikon camera.

Align the mounting mark on the lens with the mark on the camera body (at about the two-o'clock position). Push the lens into the mount then twist the lens counterclockwise until it clicks in place.

It's the exact same procedure you would use with a Nikon lens.

F--error even though I cleaned connections with lens and camera


Hi mmarushack, in the manual page 132 it states that the F- - error means the lens is not attached or a non CPU lens is attached. If a older non CPU lens is attached select M mode. That would be on the right side of the lens mount as you face the front of the camera. The assumption is you have a CPU lens then I would suggest doing a reset of the camera. Open the terminal rubber flap on the left side of the camera. Just below the USB connector is a small push button. That resets the camera thus fixes you camera. If not do call Nikon at 800-645-6689

Canon D5, when I point it down wards, it get the wronge exposure ie 200 at f22 also the flash will not work when camera is pointed down, but all OK when held level?


Sounds like the lens is losing connection with the camera body. Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the mount and lens with a little alcohol on a Q-tip and make sure the spring loaded contact pins move and do not stick. Look at the lens mounting ring on the body and make sure it is not excessively worn (deep scratches, chrome worn thru to brass color). Re-attach the lens and grab the body with one hand and the lens the other and with a little force twist and wiggle them back and forth and against each other. The lens will have a tiny amount of slack between it and the mount, but the lens mount should not move in the body. If it does than the camera has probably been dropped and broken it loose.
If cleaning the contacts does not help then it will probably need to go to Canon for service. You can also carry it into any camera store or show it to any pro and they should be able to tell you if it has a real problem or not in about 20 seconds. If it needs repair work, send it straight to Canon. That way if they screw it up, they can replace it. It happens more than you think.

D40 55mm lens will not fix to body


Best thing is take this into your local camera shop and try another lens...if the problem persists,you have damage to the camera.

Though does sound like you have snapped the lens mount and im not sure if this is repairable.

Best of luck.

Unscrewing lenses


Hello toccata, It sounds like your lens mount is cross-threaded. Have you gotten a lens off and looked closely at your camera lens threads. Are they crunched together. You may need to get your cameras lens mount replaced and check all your lenses and see if the threads aren't cross threaded. If a lens has bad threads, don't use it anymore.

Vivitar lens


Can you provide model on the Vivitar and the model of the Rebel? The serial number provided is not sufficient to find exact info on the lens mount. If you take a picture of the lens mount and upload it, it's better.

Best info I can give is this ...

The Canon Rebel is an EF mount and will accept also EF-S type lenses. Once you have the mount type of the lens, you can then locate a mount adapter that will allow you to attach it to the Canon.

For example. If the VIVITAR lens has a T-Mount, then you can get one here. Realize though that old lenses do not benefit from new camera features, so autofocus and other things may not work.

Let me know more info if you can ...

Hope this helps, if so, rate a FixYa! ThankYa!

Lens stuck out


The lens probably has some dirt or grime stuck in the lens motor. If you can gently twist the lens back and forth, maybe with some air.

I have answered this in another post. Here is the link.

'lens not attached'


We had the same problem. After inspecting the contacts I saw that the one metal ball (contact) that was separate from the other contact grouped on the mounting collar was stuck down. By pressing the contact a couple of times with a blunt object it freed up the contact so that when re-attached the lens it worked as expected.
