Camera won't take pictures
On page 256 of the D-90 users manual it says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction that can be cleared by releasing the shutter. On my D-90 when this occurs, I have to turn the camera off to make the shutter release. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reinstall the battery to get the shutter to release.
The manual also says that if this error occurs frequently or persists to contact n authorized Nikon service center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon,com before you contact a service center to see what tech support advises. I have heard of people resolving this problem by upgrading the firmware (camera software). Nikon tech support can tell you if this will help.
This information works for my D-90 and could work for your D-40

You are sure on both, the camera and the lens, AF is selected?
If you did and the lens does not work, please try anther lens, to find out, if it is a malfunction of the lens or of the camera.
You also could check if all contacts on the lens and in the camera are clean and not corroded. If the are not clean and shining, please use a dry cloth to carefully rub the contacts clean. Be careful not to bend any contact in that process. please be careful not to leave any dust n the camera or lens. Use the lens and camera caps when you are not cleaning one of them.

The camera will not deface your photos by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However, the data is stored with the image. Any photo viewing program should be able to show you this information. Depending on the program and printer, you can choose to have the date printed on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Make sure the aperture ring is set to "A", the mode dial to "P", the ISO to "auto ISO" with a range of about 100-400, the white balance to "auto WB", and focussing set to autofocus, not manual.
We had a splash of water come up on our D40 today
Dismantle everything you can from the camera (battery, memory card, lens), try to pour out as much 'free' water as you can and let it dry for a couple of days.
DO NOT PLUG THE CAMERA TO THE MAINS, COMPUTER OR ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTION until you can fire it up with the battery itself.
If your camera doesn't come to, you need to take it to the authorized dealership.
My son dropped my Nikon D40x, cracking a piece of
First, try it. If it still works, you're in luck. If not, well !!! Once a lens is broken, there isn't much that you can do, except replace it. Camera lenses are compound lenses, except on the smaller cameras. Compound lenses are stacked and glued sets of lenses, with specific distances between sets. If it is an expensive lens, get an estimete for a repair price. It might be cheaper to just replace it.
I want to use fairly telephoto lens in D3 slr
You don't say what sort of telephoto you want to buy or how much money you want to spend but basically anything longer than a 50 mm is regarded as telephoto.
A staring point for you maybe the lens listed below:
Nikon Telephoto Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR
It importantly has VR or "Vibration Reduction" on it to reduce camera blur when hand holding telephoto shots. This is just a staring point... You need to work out what you want to photograph
