The flash pivot on the release side of the flash has a small cylinder that operates the flash up switch. If that cylinder is broken off or the pivot is pushed in so the switch doesn't close, then what you describe happens

pop up the flash and remove the two screws underneath, and you can pry off the cover - gently - to check the switch

SOURCE: autofocus will not work,

the d40 takes a while to focus, make sure the subject is centered on any of the 3 focus brackets.next press the shutter halfway and wait until the camera beeps , when it does, press it all the way and the picture will come out crisp.

SOURCE: nikon d40 flash won't fire

My d40 did the same thing and the guy at Wolf Camera said a sensor is bad. The falsh was up but every time I focused it tried to pop up the flash again but it would not fire.

I had 2 options. Send it off for 8 weeks to Nikon at a $240 minimum or buy a flash attachment for $100. I chose the $100 option.

SOURCE: Sd card won't click into place on my Nikon d60

Check your SD card, there may be a piece of it missing. Did the same to my camera and looking into the card holder, there was a piece of SD card lying at th bottom! (I used a needle to dislodge it!)

D60 flash won't pop up


Please set the MODE to P (Programmed Auto) In this mode YOU control the flash, not the camera. Inside where it is not bright. Set your ISO to 800 and take a photo indoors with low light. Then pop up the flash and do it again. P lets you take a photo with the flash down or UP it is the only mode I suggest most people should use. :)

There is no fuse you can replace, the camera needs repairs.

I have a nikon d60 and cannot get the pop up flash to work, any help would be appreciated.


there is a button just to the left of the flash on the camera that should pop up the flash or if you are in auto mode it shoud pop up by itself.. if these do not work then your flash is stuck and you could just pull up in it and it should open but I dont recommend that just in case you break it.. but I have done that several times

Hello i have nikon d60 and the flash do not pup out


In what mode(s)? In the point&shoot modes the camera decides whether to pop up the flash. In PSAM modes you decide.

Auto flash wont work


did it pop up automatically or did you pop it manually? if it popped up by itself then the flash unfortunately is probably dead, since on automatic, it won't pop unless it's going to fire. If you popped it manually then - the camera doesn't think that the flash is necessary for the conditions that you're shooting in.

Have a nikon d60 and the flash will not go off even when in a dark situation. Pops up but no flash?


if it pops up then the sensor is working and the mechanical parts are working,

Next is manual force flash test, if is manually flashes, the bulb is good else replace the bulb.

What is night mode on a Nikon d60. How do I turn it on and off?


Night mode?

Do you mean Night Portrait mode? Select it by turning the mode dial to the appropriate icon, deselect it by turning the mode dial to some other mode.

Do you mean flash? It pops up automatically in the point&shoot modes (except for Sports, Landscape, and NoFlash). You have to pop it up in PSAM modes.

Built-in flash not working


Please shoot in P mode. In P mode it will use the flash if you pop it up and not use it if it is down.

The flash uses LOTS of battery power. If you battery is weak the flash may take a long time to recycle (charge).

The Flash must be popped up and READY before you can use it. The flash is charged or READY when the RED light is on.

I hope this helps.

D70 internal flash not firing


Check if something is preventing the flash to pop up 'fully'. Check for some dust or other particles trapped between the flash and the body. Does the screen say 'Subject is too dark'? If so, the flash has not popped up fully.
