Try cleaning the low-pass filter in front of the sensor, as described in "The Low-Pass Filter" section of the manual (page 105 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download one here.

The rechargeable battery is often the cause for shutdown issues, before you invest in a new one have them check your old one first.

It appears you have a speck of dirt on the photo sensor.
Turn the camera off and remove the lens. Carefully lift up the mirror. Using a blower brush, blow air at the shiny rectangle in the back of the interior. DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR!!! Use a manual blower.
If this doesn't do it, you may have to use a sensor swab to clean the sensor. If you don't want to do this yourself, any good camera shop should be able to do it for you.

The D40x won't deface your pictures by scrawling a string of digits across them. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are saved with each picture in what's called the EXIF data. You can see this data in just about any photo viewing/cataloging program, such as Nikon ViewNX2.
Any photo printing program should be able to print some of this data, either on the image itself, in the margins, or on the back, depending on the printer. If you're printing directly from the camera, look at the instructions in the "Printing Photographs" section of the manual (page 57 in my copy), particularly the paragraph bulleted "Time stamp."

You have to decide that. It's a good match if it works for you.
There's nothing wrong with the match. The only downside I could think of is that you don't need a full-frame lens with the D40, and there are smaller and lighter DX lenses available.

Having gone over a year without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to get a newer version of ACR solved the problem.

I hope you never do see a prospective picture on the monitor before you take it. If you do, there's something seriously wrong with your camera.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Having gone over a year without a response to my query, I assume lowering the ISO took care of the grain problem.

Try taking the battery out of the body. With battery out, turn power switch to "on". Turn it back off (battery still out). Wait 1/2 an hour, put battery back in and see what happens. I hope that solves it. If not, re-post your question and we'll investigate further.

Depending on exactly which piece is broken, you can order the flash top cover and/or the flash head assembly.

Press the up or down arrow when reviewing your images and the screen will change through the various "overlay" screens until you get back to your "normal" screen (usually the one with the image and frame numbers on it). You're welcome.

there is a lock on the side of some sd cards try checking if there is one.

Nikon D40x... | Answered on Nov 08, 2011


The usual cause of this problem is the failure of the motor in the SQ (sequence) unit, which also ***** the shutter, adjusts the aperture, etc. The D40/D40x/D60 all use the same part, so this applies to all three. The motor is only available as part of the assembly.

Hi kcrdnl264,

The camera records the date/time with the image file but will not imprint it over the image. That's done when you print the picture. Consult your printer manual and/or the manual for the printing software.

1. If you simply want to see the date and time on the screen, press up/down while reviewing your pictures until you get the view you want.

2. If you want the date and time printed on the pictures, that needs to be done in whatever program you use to print. For example, Nikon ViewNX has a "Print Photo Information" check box in its Print dialog.

Note: The camera is not going to damage your pictures by imprinting date and time on any portion of the image. It will record that information (and a lot more), but its priority is on getting the image data.


Hope it helps.

Thank You for using Fixya.
