Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

I have the same issue with my d40x. i have tried all the tips on here with no resolution to my prob. one thing i have noticed when i have navigated around the menu is that focus mode is set to AF-A. AF-S and AF-C are greyed out and unavailiable for selection. is this a problem? and if so how could i change them? Many thanks Paul


Answers :

You're in one of the point&shoot modes. In these modes the camera takes almost complete control of itself and leaves you with very few options. If you want more control over the camera, switch to one of the PSAM modes. The P mode works almost exactly like the green Auto mode, except that you can override any and every setting.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.


Base from the description of your problem what we can do here first to correct the problem is to reset or restore the camera settings to its default from the camera MENU. Then once you done that check if its working fine now. ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Using my Canon XSi/450D, I'm interested in doing High Dynamic Range photography. But I can't discover how to make the automated shutter-speed range multi-shot (3 for the 450D) AEB work. I've gone into the menu and select and change the AEB range ( -2V) and pressed "set." Working from the "AV" in creative mode, I then set up my first shot with focus and ISO, and shoot. Now what? When I press the shoot button, an ordinary photo is captured, and if I continue to press the button additional cap

Hi, I have a Ricoh Caplio R5 which appears to be working normally in all areas except that when you switch it on, in both camera and video mode, there is no image on the screen and if you make an exposure, it still makes all the correct noises etc but obviously there is no captured images.

I've read the manual, but I'm still not sure what settings would be the best to photograph close-pictures of jewelry. I want the pictures as clear as possible. A lot of my pictures are fuzzy even when I select the stabilizer in mode 2.


You will probably need to use a tripod in close up mode. Especially if the light levels are low. Flash may help but often gives pictures with overbright parts and reflections. Cheap table tripods are easy to get hold of and if used with the self time ... Digital Cameras

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

Forgets settings My optio s40 worked well until just after the warranty expired. Then it started acting up. It maintains the default settings in auto mode. It allows me to change them, but when I shut it off and power up again, it has returned to the default settings. In Pict mode, it maintains EV +1, AWB as flourescent lighting and image size as one higher than the smallest size. Again, I can change the settings, but when I shut it off and power up again, these are the settings it has. Any idea

Dark Images At some point, the images from the camera became very dark in automatic mode. Previous to that, the images were perfect. I have checked all settings many times and changed back to default settings. Nothing has seemed to work other than to change mode to "P" and set for extra exposure. Thanks.
