Question about Pentax Cameras
SOURCE: is my canon eos 400d broken?
This is a Digital SLR With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror. When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD- afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.

It sounds like the infamous aperture control problem. I had mine fixed by this place:
They had it for a couple of weeks, and when I got it back it worked perfectly.

What lens are you using with the D40? Is it an AF-S lens? And is the Mirror Lockup on? Chech the Custom Settings menu. If mirror lockup is on, turn it off.

It sounds to me that you are using an incompatible lens or a broken one. Does this happen with the lens that came with the camera?
