Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

Won't take pictures when set to A on the lense.

\015 When the switch is on A on my lense it will not let me snap any pictures. Is there something wrong or just a simple setting problem that I may not be familar with?\015

Answers :

If you're using D40/X, make sure that the attached lens has built-in autofocus motor (e.g. code AF-S for Nikon, HSM for Sigma), because the camera does not have built-in autofocus motor in the body so only manual mode will work in most AF lenses..

if you're lens is already one with built-in autofocus motor, you might need to check the motor at a service center

Why is my olympus e420 taking green tinted photos? I bought a new camera which I received yesterday, and it was until earlier, but has suddenly started taking yellowy/greeny tinted images.

Error When taking a photo the shutter does a double take but does not register the photo info. A "err" is then indicated on the display. This is a intermittent fault and continuous efforts allows a normal picture to be taken. If the camera in held upside down it then functions normal. Have tried a reset, newly charged batteries and different lenses but to no avail. This also occurs within all settings

I dropped my camera in water, the lense got moisture in it but was working right away. I had opened the inside of the camera to make sure nothing got wet. I set it out to dry. The lense is dry of moisture but the buttons wont work and the camera wants me to input the date. But, since the buttons won't work I can't, and now I can't take picutres.
