I have a 6 month old D40x. It was working fine last night but this morning it wont turn on. I don't know what's wrong because even when I went to go charge the batteries, they're not recognized by the charger... What went wrong??!

Do you get the 'push shutter button again' or 'turn off and on again ' message? If so the motor in the SQ unit that charges the shutter and moves the mirror up and down has failed. A very very common problem. The part is on constant back order at Nikon, and good luck getting it anyway as Nikon is going to stop selling parts to anyone in just a few weeks.
If you've first tried the DISP button, AND also verified that your downloaded pictures are not also black like the screen, then it's probably just a loose flex cable connection. Please see this other post for info on how to correct the problem.
My camera worked fine last night while I was taking pictures, however, I couldn't get it to power up today so that I could upload my pictures. I spent half the day recharging batteries, buying new batteries, and searching the Internet for solutions.
It turns out that I just needed to switch the batteries around. The positive and negative battery chambers are mislabeled in my camera. Duh! Works fine now. Hope this helps someone.
I called Kodak last night, they told me to turn the camera off, then remove the batteries and the memory card then wait ten seconds then reinstall both. Then turn the camera back on.... IT WORKED~ try it!!
I was having the same problem with my D40... but I read your post, tried switching the 18-55 lens to manual, then back to auto, and it seems to be working fine now. Hmmmm... think maybe there's a circuitry issue with the lens?
