Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Ah! My camera isn't turning on!

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??!

    i am having the same problem

  • Anonymous Jan 03, 2009

    I took 4 pics on my 1 yr old D40X on Christmas morning, it than turned off, and I couldn't get it back on. I just got it in for service today, no one seems to be able to figure it out, they sent it out to Nikon, and now I won't have a camera for 6-8 weeks.



    I recharged all my batteries, even checked them on a voltage meter, they were both fully charged.

Maybe you should try use different batteries, just to see if that's the problem

Nikon d40x suddenly stopped working- won't turn on- was working fine and when I connected it to laptop to download, it turned on , then suddenly went blank.


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.

When I turn on my powershot A650IS last night the screen


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.

Wont turn on


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!!

No pictures when in autofocus mode


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?
