Having gone over a month without a response, I assume this is no longer an issue.

Try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

You CAN!!! shoot in b/w with a d40, the only thing is you can't shoot in auto mode it has to be manual , aperture priority, or shutter prioirity. Go into menu - shooting mode - optimize image. you'll find it in there.

I had a similar problem with one that I bought. and come to find out, the gears internally in the lens where broken. I would return the lens, and get another one. Also when you go to buy a lens for your camera make sure that you bring the camera with you to test the zoom before you buy it.
Just FYI you also need to remember that with a smaller zoom your focus time will be slower, and it will take getting use to, unlike the larger zooms, you are trying to focus on a large area but being very detailed at the same time.

Have you ever cleaned the contacts on the lens and the camera body where they meet? If not, do so now with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

What you're seeing is blown-out highlights. These are areas of your picture where the bright stuff (highlights) have been so overexposed (blown-out) that all detail has been lost. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but usually is. The proper fix is to reduce exposure slightly. Lost details in the dark areas are usually considered more acceptable than lost details in the bright areas.

If you simply don't want to see the blinking black/white parts of your picture, simply press up/down on the multiselector to select a different view of your picture.

a yellow tint would have more to do with white balance than with aperture and lens speed.

Here is the button to activate the timer (circled in yellow). After it's been pressed, then push the shutter button and you'll have a few seconds (can set the timer seconds in settings) before the shutter releases and takes the shot.

Press the info button then the i button. Use left/right/up/down to navigate to the image quality setting at the top right corner of the screen. Press OK, then use up/down to select the desired JPEG setting.
