Try changing the batteries.
I had the same problem and realised the camera is sensitive to the type of batteries you use.  I had put in non rechargable batteries.  Some brands seem to work and some don't, but rechargables are best, particularly the original sony batteries .

It may be as simple as a broken or worn out on/off switch. If the switch shorts out, the camera will always be on or always be off. The problem could also be the switching circuitry. If you need service, you should call Nikon's Service Department at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687)9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Try hitting the display button(the small TV resembling icon in the bottom right of the camera). You may have accidentally pressed it while using your camera and caused it to turn off your display.

HOW DO I TURN THE FLASH BACK ON ? THANX.


Make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. Slide it away from the flower position to the mountain position.
Also bear in mind that the flash is for still pictures only, not for videos.

SD cards have a little slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Hi I am trying to Connect my new Pogo Printer to my Canon Powershot A40 and having trouble, can you help?


I have that camera and a new Pogo printer. To print, attach the camera to the printer with a USB cable. Make sure the camera's "take pictures/view pictures" slide switch is in the down view pictures position. Turn on the printer, turn on the camera. Select the picture to print. Press the camera's FUNC SET button. Accept the default settings and press the FUNC SET button again. In a few seconds, your picture should start to print.

DSC-S40 Can view pictures but camera shuts off when turned to camera mode


I assume so...mine is doing it as well. Even weirder is you hold a combo of buttons (i think power and mic, I dont remember exactly) and you can go into this manufacturers menu for setting up and testing the device. In that, it will take pictures and everything...and still i cannot get it to stop shutting off like that. It makes a weird clicking noise when it shuts off too...sounds like the shutter perhaps. Click click. If you find a solution to it please email me at [email protected]
