Lcd display not working on nikon d40. When we turn on the camera, and take off the lens cap, the lcd display is black. we can use the viewfinder to take a photo. We can view the image after taking the photo, but can not see the image prior to taking the picture.
The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.I realize this probably wasn't ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
Nikon D40 will not take pictures when in autofocus mode
I had a similar problem recently with my D-40 and the 18-135 Nikkor zoom lens. When I put the kit lens back on, it worked fine so it turned out to be a problem with the lens. I took it back to the store and since it is less than a year old they are s ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
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 got a Nikon D5000 and 18-55mm lens. When I take pictures using focal between 18-24 mm the deep of field is not sharp especially for landscape pictures. I made at list 200 pictures (the same image) test and the conclusion was: between 18-24mm focal the far field is not clear but what it is close to lens is sharp. The sharpness is coming when I change the focal to 35-55mm. I got a Nikon 24-70mm lens only for test purpose and the same. My test was on different modes that means P, S, A, M, and Aut
We need to understand Depth of Field first. Depth of field increase in two ways, one with the Aperture setting and one with the distance the lens is focused on. Example, at F22 focused at 10 feet the Depth of Field will be (assume for the example) ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

My Nikon D 5000 will not recognise these lenses including the nikon 55-200mmVR Zoom Lens. It comes up on the screen, Lens not attached. Because of this it will not take any pictures and I cannot control the appiture or Fseting. Thank you, David MacLeod.
You might want to have a little look inside the mount on the camera body and make sure you haven't moved the little metal clip there. (I think it was on the left as you look at the open front of the camera). There was a thing on the Nikon web site ab ... Nikon Digital Cameras
My Nikon D40 won't take pictures fast.
There is a buffer in your camera that processes your images for storage on your memory card. The larger the file size, the more the buffer is being used per image. That will slow down your image transfer.\015\012\015\012Also, memory car ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus. It will not take a pic on auto focus but will focus and if I flip the A / M switch on the lens itself over to M it will take a pic.It will take pics fine with the 18 - 55 mm lens. It's nota problem with the Zoom, but with the autofocus. When it attempts to autofocus, it goes thru the extremes of the le

Just got a 500mm f8.0 Telephoto Lens for my Nikon D90. When I connect it according to the instructions I am certain I have mounted the lens properly to my camera, I have a universal T mount to connect to my Nikon. When I turn on the camera, It flashes in the top info LCD F- -, My thought is that this is the F-Stop or the Focal length which I will need to select on the lens and input on the camera somehow, am I on the right track since I am a novice. It will not take a picture through this len
The lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You must switch the camera to Manual exposure mode by turning the mode dial to M. The lens has only aperture, f/8, and so you have to control the exposure by changing the shutter speed an ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos. After that, the camera is acting weird, pictures sometimes are taken but the picture is always dark, although flash is used and AUTO mode selected. I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.
Make sure flash is on your flash on cam is sticking. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

When I turn on my Nikon coolpix S210, it gives me a lens error prompt. I have read posts on another website and it said everything from hold the lens out by force to turn the lens slightly clockwise while it is out to rap it slightly a few times, to changing battery to taking the camera apart. Short of taking the camera apart, I have tried them all. Nothing works. I just put alot of money into the camera buying extra picture cards, batteries, etc. NOW IT WON'T WORK! And there doesn't s

I have a Nikon D40 which is coming upto being two years old. Recently I have noticed that the auto-focus will not work. If I manually focus I can still take photos but when auto is engaged it will not even try to focus and therefore will not allow me to take a photo. I have not made any changes to the settings and therefore I am concerned it is a hardware fault. The lens in question is the standard lens supplied with the camera and is the only lens I have so have been unable to check t

I just got the Nikon D3000 for Christmas, new in the box. I began to put it together, and I attached the lens and heard the click and everything. It has an error message that says "Lens not attached", when the lens OBVIOUSLY is attached. I can only "take a picture" in M mode, but there really is no picture at all. All that I can get is a dark image. Please help! Btw, I don't fully understand professional photographical terms, so please explain them thoroughly. Thank you!
Lets get you going on this camera. For the lens thing, the 18-55 Nikon lens is a good one. I'm going to\015\012 assume the lens was loaded while the camera was turned on (not a good \015\012idea). What I'm going to suggest is that you make sure the b ... Nikon D3000 Digital Camera
