Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

Ah! My camera isn't turning on!

I have a 6 month old D40x. It was working fine last night but this morning it wont turn on. I don't know what's wrong because even when I went to go charge the batteries, they're not recognized by the charger... What went wrong??!

    I took 4 pics on my 1 yr old D40X on Christmas morning, it than turned off, and I couldn't get it back on. I just got it in for service today, no one seems to be able to figure it out, they sent it out to Nikon, and now I won't have a camera for 6-8 weeks.

    I recharged all my batteries, even checked them on a voltage meter, they were both fully charged.

Maybe you should try use different batteries, just to see if that's the problem

Sigma EF-530 DG ST - not working, on test or camera all 6 LED lights displaying. Any thoughts?

I don’t usually play with flash that isn’t built in- I prefer natural light, but...if this were me I would: A) take very fine sandpaper and very lightly go one time over all contacts for the flash and camera. B) I would also see if my button batteries in my camera needed changing. As I remember they have something to do with recognizing lenses and flash attachments. C) I would also make sure the batteries in the flash, although changed, were making proper contact with the battery terminals and might also lightly sand those as well since the flash is little used.

Tv wont turn on worked fine last night

If there is no power at all, then the problem is likely the power supply unit.
The PSU must be tested, then eventually replaced.
