Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

HI,I hav a Nikon D40x camera. When I use the remote control to take pivtures it only stays in that mode for about 10 seconds before ending. How can I alter this to keep it on that setting for longer?

Answers :

You are being timed out as the default setting is 10 seconds.

Enter your setup menu (looks like a pencil) and scroll through to " Remote On Duration ".... now change this to 15 minutes and ok.Job done.
Remember to reset the menu once finished.

Hope this helps,if i helped you please vote.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

When Mode switch is set to take pictures or clips, the camera shuts down in less than a second after I turn it on. If the Mode switch is in the far-left position (review pictures already taken), it stays on and I can see all the pics in the camera, but as soon as I switch to picture-taking mode the camera shuts down.

I can take a phote, the photo will then display on the LCD for 2 seconds BUT then the LCD goes blank, all i can see are the menu options. If I take a pic while LCD is blank my pic's

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Hi - i have a Lumix DMC-LX2 that has just recently stopped operation - (for example) when set to (scene) the screen simply scrolls repeatedly thru the scene choices non-stop. When taken out of scene mode - the camera no longer takes pictures - what happened right before the breakdown was: I was was zooming in (or out) on a subject - when the camera refused to stay on the desired distance, it would automatically zoom in all the way - i am at a loss....PLEASE HELP - thanks Steve

This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.

These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??

The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

The date will not stay set. Every time we turn the camera on it opens with the date screen. We set the date and it then goes into shoot mode but the date is not set. All pictures are stamped with the default start date. Tried a new battery already.

To keep the date on, you have to leave the camera off with a charged battery for 24 hous to charge the inner battery that keeps date on. If this doesn´t solve the problem then is because the inner battery won´t charge anymore, but it wil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

My Nikon Coolpix 4800 is behaving strangely. In all shooting modes (except landscape, where it automatically zooms in completely and will not zoom out), it works properly. But in all menu modes it switches by itself every couple of seconds between the viewfinder and the screen and it cycles rapidly (with occasional brief pauses) through the menu items. By timing the cycling, I was able to reset it to the factory settings, but that didn't solve anything. Is there some way to reinstall or reboo

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. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
