Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

Nikon D40 will not turn on.

\015 I have had the camera for a year and have had zero problems. Suddenly it will not turn on. I have recharged the battery and I have also tried my charged up replacement battery. Since I've had the camera,I have never run the battery down all the way. I'm flummoxed! Please help. Thank you, Bob\015

Answers :

If you have a voltmeter check the voltage of both batts. I'm not sure what voltage they should be but it should say on the battery or in your manual. If OK clean the contacts with electrical contact cleaner or alcohol and a Q tip. An eraser lightly rubbed over the contacts might work. Also check the manual to see if there's a reset button I think there is. Another possibility is to download a recent firmware from Nikon if your computer recognizes your camera. There's a troubleshooting section in the manual. If you don't have it it's available onliine as a PDF.
