Answers :

First, make sure that your battery charger appears to be working. next, check that the battery contacts are clean on both the battery and inside the camera. If that doesn't work then you'll need to try another battery: a camera shop should be able to pop a freshly charged one inside if you ask nicely, although you'll probably need to go back to the shop after they've charged it. If your camera works on the new battery then ask them if they'll try charging your old one. If it takes and holds a charge then you have a faulty charger. The camera shop owner will be happy either way as you'll be gratefully buying one or the other rather than scampering off to eBay to get one for less (eBay/Amazon Marketplace batteries are frequently poor quality counterfeit batteries anyway).

Lithium batteries are still an immature technology and so some can just fail.

Sorry I can't be more helpful at this point, but these are the obvious and first points which you'll need to check in order to establish that there really is more to this than just a battery or charger failure. If the problem is not one of these then I suggest that you post a new question with details of what you have already checked and ruled out as potential causes.

I hope that I've helped you and only ask in return that you rate my answer.

My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).


Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
