Here's what I found on the Nikon forum and it also works for D60 Digital Camera.
Get a very small cross head screwdriver (watchmaker size)
A can of WD40
Sticky tape
A good light

Remove the Battery and SD card
Open up the bottom of the D40x putting the small screws onto the sticky tape in order of removal.

You know the camera well, so you know where all the screws go.
Remove the metal plate (used for the tripod mount, you will need to remove the back of the D40x as well, it's only 2 screws)

Now look at John C Ayr's pic of the D40xwww.flickr.com/photos/johncayr/3969534234/

Spray a SMALL amount of WD40 onto the red and white gear wheels.
(Don't use so much that it drips down onto the optics, you don't want oil in there!!!)

Put the battery in and hold it down to make contact, put in the sd card and switch on the camera and try the shutter button. (switch it to manual focus or it might try hunting around for ages for focus)

It might start working, if not move the red wheel a few stops and try again.

Once it's lubed up and the wheels move it should be ok.
Keep taking pics until you feel it is ok.

Then reassemble following the screws backwards on the sticky tape.

Error. press shutter release button again


most likely cause is failure of the motor in the SQ unit on the side of the mirror box. This ***** the shutter, raises the mirror, and operates the aperture unit. They're made in China, motors are **** This is a very very common problem, and the part is always on back order at Nikon. As Nikon has announced that they are going to stop selling parts - to anyone - in a couple of months you are probably better off sending it to them. Be prepared for a bill a little less than $200.

also if you pressed down really ******* the release to get it to fire, you may also have broken the release switch

How do I set it up on my Nikon D60 to use this remote?


I assume you're referring to the ML-L3 infrared remote?

Select Release Mode from the Quick settings display. Select Quick-response remote. This will make the camera take a picture when you press the button on the remote. Well, almost. The same focusing and exposure metering delays occur as if you'd pressed the shutter release button.

You can also use the Delayed remote mode for group pictures. This gives you two seconds to hide your hand behind your back before the camera takes the picture.

By default the D60 will time out after one minute if you don't press the button on the remote. Custom Setting #17 allows you to set a longer interval.

Error in display


Press the shutter release again. Take out the battery and put it back in a while (1-2 min). Reset the camera with the reset button.

If this doesn't work, take it to the Nikon repair.

Nikon d60 - error. turn camera off and on again.


Locate the button behind the shutter release button with the green dot next to it. Locate the button at the back lower hand side of the D60 with the green dot next to it. Press both buttons at the same time.........This resets the D60 to its original settings and should resolve the problem.....
