Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

SD card door is broken on my Nikon D40

\015 I bought a new door, but it appears as though the back needs to come completely off. I don't want to take the back off because I don't want to screw anything else up. If I knew it came off and went back on really easily I could replace this myself. Does anyone know how complicated it is to replace this door?\015

Answers :

I'm sorry it's been around 2 years since you posted this but I had the same problem, ordered the piece from Nikon last year and yes, the only way is to take all the back "skin" from the back, you have to be very careful but there is no other way. The broken door is attached by screws and some of them are on top and easy to take off but the main one is under so you have to do that. I did it with my husband's help, we tried not to touch anything and then put everything back on but yes, you definitely have to be very very careful and no, there is no other way to do it. Perhaps it is too late for you guys, but my answer my help someone else that googles such a thing in the future. good luck!

I have several Nikon D40 cameras for my yearbook program. We have generally had good luck, but the doors on two of the cameras have either broken or are not closing smoothly. I do not want to be without the cameras if I can order doors and put them on myself. Has anyone done this? How complicated is it to replace the doors? Thanks

Yes the doors warp and cause this problem, the real issue here is that you can't buy the parts or the tech manuals for the camera, that is the exclusive domain of the Nikon factory service centers, so what this means is if u want to fix the camera yo ... Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon D40 where the battery cover latch has broken through on the bottom of the camera body. It's similar to a door jab busting where the latch fits into the door jab. It looks like the bottom of the body can be unscrewed and I'm trying to find the part online so I can repair.

You'll have to get that from Nikon, ( the bottom cover ). I doubt if you will find it else where.Nikon Parts 841 Apollo Street, Suite 100, El Segundo CA 90245(310) 414-8107, (310) 322-6979 ... Digital Cameras

Memory card I had photos stored on a SanDisk 512MB memory card in a Nikon Coolpix camera that is now broken. I put the card in my HP Photosmart r707 to try to trasnfer the photos to my computer. The memory card blocked the camera. I can bring up the photos in a diaporama on my computer but I cannot transfer them. And now the HP camera menu is written in Japanese(?) not the original French. How can I restore the camera to its original state and retrieve my photos.

To transfer the photos, connect directly SD card to your PC through a card reader.\015\012Try to reset your HP R707 camera: remove the battery and press the reset switch for about 5 seconds. Reinsert the battery. ... HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D40. I wish my photographs to be numbered consecutively, 0 to whatever the numbering system goes up to (9999?), even when using a new card, without going into different files or whatever. I named a file "Card 1". The photographs come out labelled "100Card1 DSC 0001" etc. Yestreday, for no apparent reason, having reached "DSC 1021", it then started back at zero and was labelled "101Card1 DSC0001". When I go into the Folders menu there is no mention of "100" or "101", just "card
