Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

My nikon d40x got a little wet...

\015 ...when some water spilled inside my purse. the battery pack was only a slightly wet (as in, there were a few drops of water around it but nothing more). i took it out immediately and dried the battery and the inside of the battery compartment. i waited a while until i tried turning it on again, which it failed to do. i attempted to charge the battery and it worked, so i'm guessing the problem is inside the actual camera body itself. i've decided to wait at least a week before i try to turn it on again. :( is there any hope for it? is there a possibility that my camera could have short circuited? does nikon have a support line i can call for additional information regarding my problem? thanks for any help.\015

Not really a solution, But my camera and I fell in a lake. I took it ALL apart and didn't touch it for four days. It turned on and worked, though I had to re-set all my settings. The only thing that doesn't work is the "trash" button, and I can live without it :) good luck!

Hey so I took my camera to the beach one day and despite the great lengths I went through to keep my camera away from the water, a wave got to it and it got wet. I assumed it only got wet on the outside and didn't really look elsewhere and went ahead and turned it on. When it wouldn't turn on, I checked the battery and there was a little smoke coming out of the battery slot. Apparently some water had gotten into there so of course I freaked out because my extremely expensive camera was n

No Flash My camera got a little wet at a themepark, and I fear it's damaged. At first the flash was being a little faulty, but now it won't flash at all no matter what I do. And the little green off/on light stays on even when the camera is turned off. I've had this camera for less than a year- I don't want to buy a new one already!

Pull the battery and memory card and keep them out for a while. If you are confident you could successfully open and reassemble your camera you could attempt to open it up to dry it out.Otherwise, take a can of compressed air and point the nozz ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

Good luck with this, water is NEVER good in a camera. Best advice is to open it up as much as possible, remove cards, open access doors etc and place it in a warm dry place for a few days. Hot water cupboard is best. With luck the water will dry and ... Fuji FinePix Z10fd Digital Camera

I have a Nikon Coolpix S200 and yesterday during my nephews birthday I sat in on the kitchen table, left to play guitar hero, came back to see my camera completely covered in milk. I dont know how long it was laying in the spilled milk..and yes..there is use in crying over it. :( I grabbed the camera, dried it off, took the battery and memory card out. I got a wet towel and got all of the milk I could get out but it was in the battery compartment and everything. Put the battery back in and tried

You have dried milk in the lens area... u will have take chances on moving the lens around to get the dried milk from around it. If the lens is stuck out just lightly oush down on it and it should work. ... Nikon COOLPIX S200 Digital Camera

Is there the equiv of "focus priority shutter release" Comments: Jan 09, 2010 - by "focus priority shutter release" I mean the ability to instruct NOT to allow shutter release (ie FULL depression of the shutter button" UNTIL focus is achieved and confirmed. I have this feature on all my NIKON and OLY pro and prosumer level cameras as well as my Panasonic GH1 (just got this little beauty and love it). I'm asking the question on behalf of a friend who just got the LEICA V-LUX 1. Thanks in ad

I don't have the V Lux, but based on what the operation manual says, the camera will not work this way. It's designed for you to press the shutter release halfway until you get focus indication, and then to fully press to take the picture. \0 ... Leica V-LUX 1 Digital Camera

You did good and removing the battery and memory card was also a good idea....leave the unit for a couple days the way it is...check later to see if there is any white or green residue(powder) or rust looking areas around the memory card and battery ... Fuji FinePix Z10fd Digital Camera

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? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

That's because the Nikon D40 does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the v ... Nikon D40 Body Only Digital Camera

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.

Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error.  It is only a few months old.  I think what caused the problem was the last time I took  a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny.  Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem.  thank you!
