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

Nikon D40 help?!

\015 I have a nikon D40 camera. I was taking pictures with my new puppy and he knocked it over onto the ground and now the automatic focus won't work. It will focus but it will not take a picture and the flash won't pop up. Any help??!!!\015

Answers :

I assume the lens had the impact.\015\012The 18-55 lens has the built-in motors for auto-focus.\015\012
\015\012Try switching to manual focus (on the lens). If this works, the lens may not auto-focus anymore.\015\012
\015\012Try it and let me know.\015\012
\015\012cheers,

How do I fix this problem?? HELP

Hello, I recently bought a Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D lens for my Nikon D40. I can't get the Auto Zoom to work. I was wondering what I am doing wrong. is ther any setting I have to put my camera in? Anything I have to do on the lens it self? Help!!! Thank you Higor


Wont AF on a D40 as the D40 uses "in lens" focus motors. The 185D is a camera body AF drive lens. You need a DX type lens that has an AF motor in the lens for a entry level D40. Sorry. ... Digital Cameras

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting?
