Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
Go to take a picture error shows up and says press shutter release button and only bottom half shows picture and top is black
The camera firmware should be reloaded, if this fails then the camera is likely beyond end user servicing and should be repaired by a professional.
The reason your only seeing bottom half is as the reflex mirror is opening upwards to expose the sensor ( traditional cameras opened the mirror then a shutter to expose film ) your cameras sensor is only registering or transferring the bottom half of the image because it is the image is registered bottom first to the top until the shutter closes and the mirror returns to resting position.
Your problem could be the result of firmware or a more serious issue.
