20 Most Recent Nikon D40 Digital Camera with 18-135mm lens Questions & Answers

What do you mean by "opened it up"? I hope you did not disassemble your lens. If you did; STOP NOW! Without training, you will never be able to reassemble your lens yourself. Contact your closest Nikon USA repair depot or a local qualified camera repair man.
If, on the other hand, you mean that you simply removed the lens from your camera and the part in question is on the rear of the lens, please post a photo of the lens with an arrow or some type of identification of the part you are talking about.
One other thing; have you asked your photography instructor to look at your lens?

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Press the info button on the back to bring up the shooting information screen. The second item from the top on the right column is the image size. Press the button to activate the settings, then use the multiselector to navigate to the desired setting. Press OK, use the multiselector to select the desired size, then OK to set it.

Your choices are Large (3008x2000), Medium (2256x1496), and Small (1504x1000).

Note that you cannot change the image size if you're shooting RAW. The image quality setting is the one just above the image size.

Yes , it is a power saver. I remember there being a way to change it in the menus. Note: the "monitor" stays on for different times depending on mode. There is a manual on line. I had better luck just playing with the menus. The menu your looking for is easily over looked.

Is the camera in airplane or power saving mode?

Nikon D Cameras | Answered on Feb 02, 2019

By not clear do you mean out of focus or streaked due to movement? Try using a higher ISO setting in order to allow for a faster shutter speed and/or use a tripod.
