Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
My camera is about a year old nikon d40 digital. For some reason it just stopped working when it is in auto focus mode. Nothing happens when I push the shutter button. IN manual mode it will work. Any ideas?
So, before i take my d40 to an authorized tech, should i maybe see if the lense needs to be cleaned then? silly question I know. But i really dont want to waste money on sucha petty problem.

When the camera is in auto focus mode, it will not take the picture until it locks onto a subject. If there is not enough light, the camera will "hunt" for something to focus on. Since it can't define any edges, it won't allow the shutter to release.
The D40 base model does NOT have a powered focus lever for autofocus, so if the autofocus is not working, suspect the lens.
