It's because you are to close to the subject. You can back off or set your lens to manual and the shutter will release whether or not it is in focus.

How to set ML-L3 to D40 Nikon


You need to set the shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

See the "Shooting Modes" section in the manual (page 32 in my copy).

How do i take pictures in an aperture priority mode?


Turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to "A". Select the aperture by turning the command dial on the back of the camera, and the camera will set the shutter speed to suit.

Slow sync flash - nikon d40


Set the exposure mode to Manual (M) or Shutter-priority (S) and specify the shutter speed yourself. You'll have to set it sufficiently slow in order to see any difference between front- and rear-curtain.

In manual mode cannot set shutter speed to


The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).

1. Set the film speed manually or DX to do it automatically by holding down the ISO button and turning the command dial.

2. Slide the camera back lock releases toward each other to open the back.

3. Insert the film cartridge on the left.

4. Pull film leader over to the red index mark on the right.

5. Close the back, making sure there's no slack in the film, and the lock releases snapped close.

6. Lightly press the shutter button. The film icon will appear in the LCD panel.

7. Fully depress the shutter button to automatically advance film to frame 1.

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem


The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events. Experiment it's all about trial and error. Ray

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

When the camera is in auto focus mode, it will not take the picture until it locks onto a subject. If there is not enough light, the camera will "hunt" for something to focus on. Since it can't define any edges, it won't allow the shutter to release.

The D40 base model does NOT have a powered focus lever for autofocus, so if the autofocus is not working, suspect the lens.
