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

Can't enable manual white balance and other options on nikon d40?

\015 I just got my Nikon D40 and I can't seem to figure out how to enable the manual white balance and optimize image things under the Shooting Menu. I read the manual and I've tried changing CSM/Setup menu and Auto Shooting Info but I still can't get it to work - it just says "This option is not available with current settings". Thank you\015

Whenever I try to take a picture using "auto focus" option with my Nikon D40, (using the standard lens that came w/the camera), it makes a clicking sound and will not auto focus. But if I use it in manual mode it does not click. What could be the problem?


This camera focuses the lens by sending an electronic signal to it. If you hear a clicking sound, the lens is receiving the signal, but not responding. I suggest you take the camera & lens to a local photo store & ask if they could let you mount anot ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is.... I'm taking pictures at my sons wrestling events and I can't get it to take clear pictures. If i put it on sports it's one of the worst with blurriness. I don't know a good setting for this?
