    great camera for a while, then all of a sudden it stopped focusing.
    this just happened, it wasn't an expensive camera, probably won't try to have it fixed

When I press the button to take a picture, it always has a delay and I end up missing the shot.


Most camera's need this time to autofocus but if you half depress the button before the camera autofocus should do its job in advance. The picture takes immediately then.

My Nikon D40x will not always take a picture when I push the shutter and will not focus whats wrong with it?


I have the same problem and I make this: take out the zoom lens from the body and put it again. The auto-focus comes back. Another my solution: Push autofocus buton to M (manual) and back to A (auto). Then sometimes starts again to work autofocus. But still I know it is not final solution...

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down


Hello,
It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

Aoutofocus stopped working


Start off with the simple things, does it work with another lens, is the AF/M switch in the correct postion for autofocus (AF), are the batteries good.

If all of the above are in order it maybe either the DC/DC converter on the bottom of the camera, this supplies power to various parts of the circuit. or it could be the motor drive transistors, these are located under the front cover and are located where you finger tips rest on the right hand side as you hold the camera.

Both these items are not really user changeable and I know the DC/DC units have not been available new for many years now.

I suggest you have a look for a friendly camera repair shop to pin point the exact cause.

You will have to keep in mind the age of the camera 23 years old parts are a big issue

Nikon d40 autofocus


Look on the left side of the lens. Make sure the button is on A for auto focus and not M for manual. OR not stuck in the middle. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

Autofocus not working


Are you depressing the shutter button half way prior to snapping the shot you want. Also check to see if any of you setting are changed...if it's on auto and you still are have the same problem then your lens could be dirty.
