I gave the lense part of the camara a moderate slap, and the camara has worked fine since. looks like a lot of people have the same problem. Most of the people call it black screen problem. the shutter gets stuck. Tap it a few times on the side of the lense part of the camara moving it from bright to dark objects back and forth.
good luck.

Pictures very dark even with a light meter


Digital cameras operate on a delayed shutter. Your Camera and flash are not synchronized. Try adjusting flash to a slower speed. Or the cameras Fstop value to get them insync.

If you half push the shutter the rangefinder and focus circuits kick in and will adjust to available light and give you your best picture. Do not ever push the shutter in one step. press it slightly to get the best focus and then push the last millimeter to get the picture!

Dark monitor


Since the D40X is an SLR, (single lens reflex), it is not possible to use the LCD monitor to frame your pictures before they are taken.

To view what your images look like after you have taken them, you need to use the 'monitor/play' button marked with a rectangular box

Canon eos 300d - image to dark


Try lithium batteries or rechargables in the 2500mah range,to me they seem to work best in a flash.
If you use alkalines,use a well known brand.But with alkalines,as they loose power it takes longer for the flash to recycle.
Also the monitor might need to be calibrated or adjusting brightness and contrast.
Mine sometimes does the same thing,I just use Photoshop to adjust it.

Pictures are dark, even when flash is being used


Press the FN button under the toggle on right side of LCD screen. You will see white balance on left. Toggle down to the "flash" symbol".  Should work a treat now. If not using flash go to FN again and raise ISO.(Don"t forget to go to Auto white balance again!!)

Flash works but timing is off


If your camera is set properly there seems to be bad connection between shutter and the flash and you will have to send it in. I would though look again at the way your camera is set up for flash fotography.
