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

Nikon D40 stopped working

\015 I have an Nikon D40 a little over a year old. It has been working perfectly until the other day after I uploaded pictures to my computer. Those uploaded fine, but now whenever I turn my camera on the only thing it will do is the lcd screen will say connecting to pc. It won't do anything else! Help!\015

Answers :

Connect the mini usb calbe to Camera only. Camera will working like used to be without cable. Go to setup menu and Change USB setting to P, PTP. then unplug the miniusb and hopefully camera will work as it once was.

It worked for me :)

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.


There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one.

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)


The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem? Stan Wil


No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop. I've tried different ports, different cables, reinstalled software, reset the camera -- nothing works. Nikon's tech support was not helpful. My PC runs XP, my son's laptop runs Windows 7. The camera worked fine with both then suddenly stopped working. My device manager does not detect the camera at all.


Microsoft updates frequently make changes to the registry which cause our cameras to no longer be recognized. The simple solution is to start using a separate card reader. ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well?

My Nikon D40x won't auto-focus. When I press down the shutter button, it won't do anything at all. If I switch to manual and back to auto, it works for 2-3 shots, and stops working again. If change shooting modes from single to timer and back, it might work for a couple shots. I have not been able to find any other solutions. Any suggestions?
