HELP! My Nikon is Kaput.

1. jimdaly9821 February 2010, 17:47 GMT +01:00

My D40 won't talk to me. All it will show is a message on the rear LCD saying "Error. Press shutter release button again."

Anyone got any (sensible) advice?

Here's a couple of pages I found on this problem

Aggh! That one sounds bad Jim.

Is it under warranty?

If it was under warranty, it probably wouldn't have broken. (Assuming it is broken) This is one of the well known manifestations of Sod's Law.

You do know this is partly by design don't you ?:

Hopefully it is not a victim of planned obsolescence. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planned_obsolescence

Nikon has a better reputation for quality than made to fail after the warranty is up.

Had this happen with both of the D40's I've had. Sucks. I got the first one fixed under warranty. The other on is sitting on my shelf right now still giving that message.

Yep, my with Cannon the zoom lense won't go out all the way, it stops part way out and then you have to turn it off and on and off and on over and over to get rid of the error message on the screen. I'm thinking of getting a new one.... a camera with less noise would be nice for sure!
