Nikon D40 green light flashing even when off
Sorry to hear this. Dropping something on concrete creates a high G force. Can you make sure the battery is fully charged before you put it in. If you have a good battery and all it does is blink something must have been broken. I think a D40 is a rather old camera too. Sorry I do not think I can help you. In most times a LED green blinking means it is charging. When carrying a camera you should wrap the strap around your wrist. If you do it correctly if you drop your camera it will not hit the ground. It is best to keep it from dropping on the ground.

Nikon pop up flash
This, most likely, will not help you. If it is stuck and you smell something burnt I think your camera has serious problems. I think this is the time to decide REPAIR or REPLACE.

All my shots seem to dark no matter what settings
What Mode are you in? In many modes the +/- setting that is usually easily adjust on the camera is exposure compensation this has no effect on manual mode. If this is set to -2 many modes will take dark photos. If you shoot manual then ISO, F-Stop and Shutter speed are all you need.

Nikon D40 - The memory card will not stay in. If
this is all i could think off just to help you out in till you can get it fixed.
I don't have a permanent fix, but one thing that works is folding up a small piece of paper and holding it over the memory card while closing the cover so that the cover pushes on the paper which holds the memory card in place automatically when the cover is closed. You just have to experiment to get the folded paper the right size and thickness. Again, its not a fix, but it has worked for me.
I shone a really bright light into the SD slot and sure enough, behind the gold springs at the bottom of the card slot, was a tiny black sliver of plastic that moved slightly when I tipped the camera. About 3mm long.
I removed the camera battery. Then I got a big long sewing needle, and with some very gentle manouvering, so as not to scratch anything inside the camera's SD slot, it fell out just when I was about to give up.
After I'd got the plastic sliver out, I trimmed the splintered edge of the SD card and put it back in
this is not to say it will work for you but give it a try but this will be at your own risk.

My D300s is not powering
Try a que tip with rubbing alcohol into the battery compartment of the 300s. Rub the terminals with the moistened que tip gently and look for dirt, dust, debris in the compartment.

Vertical lines showing up on D700 images
Given its age - almost 10 years now, while you don't want drama you can expect them.
I had same probs with a Sony - green and yellow lines - then later on a horizontal split in the pics - with the bottom out of alignment with the top.
Nikon should be able to quote for a repair - its a quality, full frame camera worth a proper repair. Despite its now small size 12 meg sensor it will still beat a lot of today's cameras
in the hands of a good photographer.

The D60 was released BEFORE HD SD cards came out. The 4 gig card MAY BE TOO BIG. HSD I think is the Nomenclature you may need a normal SD card. I think 2GB is as big as you can go but don't quote me.
