Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens
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
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.
