Nikon D40 Question

I was reading this instructable and I was wondering if any has tried this on a Nikon D40. I don't have the link cable but I am sure I could find one at a Futureshop or Staples. I have a cable that hooks up to the computer and then my camera but it is looking like the cable might be to small. The port that looks like it might be the one, is the one above the USB port, underneath the hatch.Sorry if I am to vague, I would be glad to re-word it if you need me to.

Help! Flash/fiber optic wire question

Help help! I was following the instructions at to fix a flash on a camera I got on ebay. All was going great until the black wire came out. I tried putting it back in and got a terrible shock, and the flash no longer worked. So I thought it was a grounding wire. I tried to strip it and put it back in its little holes, but it did NOT want to strip. Downloading the service manual later showed me that it didn't want to strip because it's really fiber optics in there. In trying to fix it some more, I got shocked a few more times, pretty strongly (with the battery out, even). I'm not sure if I've fried a component or not, but at least nothing smells bad. I'd like to try to put a new fiber optic wire in there, but I have no idea where to find one. Can anyone help me? The gauge of the wire is pretty standard for small electronics. Please let me know!! Susan

How to repair autofocus on Nikon D40?

Hello - I have a Nikon D40 with two lenses. The auto-focus works on one lens, but not the other. Suggestions I've already tried are to clean the lens thoroughly and clean the contact points. I'm not sure if I cleaned the contact points correctly, and I'd really like to know if anyone else has had this problem and been able to fix it. Thanks!

Try to clean the square holes at the front side of the film holder and if this doesn't work, try another holder." _____________ I tried all: cleaned all holders, opened the scanner and cleaned it from dust; restarted the computer; turned the scanner off/on/off/on with 5 min intervals. Nothing helped. ______ Then I tried another program - Viewscan. It also said, "Insert the film holder" while it was already inserted.______   Who knows what might it mean? That the scanner grew too old?

Greetings I would like to 3d print 2 rings to be used as adapters for tilt shift photography . one of the rings would act like a fastener for the camera and the other would be the housing for the lens. A bellow (not 3d printed) placed between these 2 rings will act as a medium for tilt and shift. The issue is i am not sure of the measurements for the nikon d90 model mount and AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens The attachment  outlines the rough design for printing Thanks in advance. Za fer

Can you suggest some good lenses for my Nikon D40? Answered

Hello all, After using my Nikon D40 with the kit lens for about two years now, I think I'm ready to buy some extra lenses for it.  I have two primary needs that I hope to satisfy with no more than two lenses, and hopefully just one. 1.  Macro photography.  For my work on Instructables I take a lot of macro shots, and I find the kit lens (or is it the camera?) difficult to use for this.  When the minimum focal length is 8 inches or more it's just really hard to get a good shot.  For this need I'd be happy with a manual focus lens since I'd be the only one using it.  But, I really need tighter macro shots than the kit lens - whether this lens can get physically closer or whether it needs to be telephoto I don't really care. 2.  Low Light.  My wife and I often find ourselves in situations where we'd like to take photos of people (and especially children!) in low light, without a flash.  Obviously, this leads to lots of blurring and other undesirable mistakes.  I think a nice, fast lens on the order of f/1.8 or f/1.4 would do the trick, and Nikon makes a nice AF-S model for less than $200.  The trouble is the lack of zoom - I think I could deal with it, but my wife uses the whole range of 18-55mm on the kit lens and would probably throw her hands up in despair if that ability were missing.  So what's the solution here? Thanks for any suggestions you folks can provide, especially when it comes to older lenses.  Apparently the D40 can mount old non-AI Nikon lenses which is good news I guess, because it opens up a whole world of used lenses.  Beyond that I must plead ignorance... EDIT:  I'm somewhat leaning towards the fast 35mm f/1.8 AF-S prime lens and an extension tube set for macro.  Still researching, though.... EDIT 2:  Still liking the looks of the 35mm prime, but now considering a Nikon 3T or 4T diopter macro filter, if I can find one... EDIT 3:  SOLUTION:  I ended up buying the 35mm f1.8 prime lens and a 10x achromatic macro filter (I didn't manage to find a Nikon filter, but I did find one that claimed to be a true achromat lens setup.  We'll see when it arrives!)

Can I use the battery charger as a direct power source?

I am making an automatic button presser for my Nikon CoolPix 4800 camera so I can make time lapse videos.  My problem is that I don't have a power adapter for my camera.  If I connect the battery charger directly to the battery slot in the camera, will the camera run safely? There is a jack on the side, but it's a strange jack that I have never seen before.  The jack is listed at 8.4V. The charger has an output of 8.4V and 600mA On the bottom of the camera, it says: 8.4V ---- 0.4A 6V -----0.6A Then, strangely, the rechargable lithium-ion battery says 7.4V, though it could be a typo. So, if I connect the terminals on the battery charger into the terminals in the camera where the battery hooks up, will it run safely? Thanks!

Camera not turning on, how can I find the problem?

A friend of mine dropped her Nikon Coolpix point and shoot, which broke caused a lens error. She handed me a ziplock bag with it disassembled and half the screws stripped and asked me to fix it, since her warranty ran out. I found and fixed what was causing the lens error, but the camera won't turn on. I didn't think to check if it powered up before I started, but I'd like to fix it if at all possible. I didn't do anything that would obviously cause this problem - I used an anti-static strap, was careful with the parts I took out, and all my work was on the lens part of the camera. The battery is charged - I have the same camera and it works in mine. I tried plugging it into a computer, no luck. What might be some possible causes, and how can I test for them?

My camera works only when hot, why?

Introduction; I live at Thailand, and Thais have holiday named Songkran where other people splash water on each other, so i took my camera out to shot some photos of the festival, and someone accidentally splashed water over me and my camera! So i took the battery out immediately and when arrived home disassembled my cam, it was full of water! So i dried some of the water with toilet paper and used a hairdryer on first lvl heat to dry it more out, after that placed the camera in the container with silica gel for 10 days! After 10-12 days i assembled camera and it worked, i was very happy.  Problem: Now after like 6 months my camera stopped working, and i found out that when i leave it near heat source (my laptop hot spot on top of the processor, sunny place, or even on very hot day) it starts to work again. First the display acting weird and messy, than it becomes green, and i leave it for 3-4 min like that. so it heats a little bit more.and after that camera works normally! but if i leave it to cool down it stops again! My Guess: I think i made a big mistake using hairdryer at all, and while in that process some of the connections could widened and made cold contact! I assume problem is somewhere on the main or power board since when i put the battery inside camera power control light doesn't respond at all. Question: Anyone can help me with some tip where the problem could be, or the possible solution? The Nikon shop does not want to repair water damaged camera and even if so, it is very expensive that i could buy new camera! Feel free to aks anyadditional questions! Thank you

I need a motion sensing trigger for a D5000 Nikon.

Motion sensing or breaking an Infrared trigger (like a garage door safety switch config.) It would have to be a two stage switch - one to depress the camera trigger half way to wake up the camera, and two, to take the picture with a full depression of the camera trigger. At this point I have a remote trigger for my Nikon but don't know whether it will wake the camera after the camera has "gone to sleep" because it has not be used over the prescribed time.

Tethered wireless shooting with TP-Link router

Hi.... I've been following the instructable about wireless tethering using the TP-Link MR3040 portable router ( This is great and works very well. My problem is that the router in the instructable is now obsolete in the UK so I was wondering if anyone knows if the TP-Link MR3020 can be flashed with the same firmware? If not are there any other compatible portable routers on the market. I understand the firmware is based upon the OpenWRT firmware but that the author has added some additional scripts, if I can't find a suitable replacement router does anyone know what additional scrips have been added and if it's possible to add them to the OpenWRT 3020 firmware. Many thanks for any help.

Is this a capacitor? What kind? (Sunpak flash/speedlight circuit for Nikon cameras)

UPDATE: I received one response (on the Strobist forum) saying this _is_ a capacitor, and I must desolder to measure capacitance.  I hope someone here can confirm this, and, if true, also help me figure out _what type_ and its likely _voltage rating_. ========================== This circuit board is from a Sunpak NE-2D dedicated module for Nikon cameras.  Can anyone help me identify the rectangular component with blue sides?   I can't find any markings on it. High res. pictures of the part and the board are linked below.  The capacitance tested around 47nF (still soldered in place).  I'm fairly new to electronics, so I don't know if I did the test right or even the right test.  If it is a capacitor, I'd like to know what type. (FYI: A dedicated module is a removable foot that attaches to various Sunpak flash units. The foot/module connects to the hot shoe connector of specific cameras.  This particular module is dedicated to older Nikon SLR cameras. It allows compatible Sunpak flash units to provide Nikon-specific TTL flash functions (Fire/X-sync, Quench, Ready light, etc.). ) Any assistance greatly appreciated.
