Re: Nikon D40 onboard Flash

Well done for finding that

Can't say that I've heard of this one, and judging from the replies - nor has anyone else!

Glad it was a quick fix, but I'm wondering how this happened in the first place. Any clues under the cover?

Re: Nikon D40 onboard Flash

No idea, but I did find loads of stuff on the web relating to the problem. Seems quite common on the d40.

I went back to Jessops this afternoon to discuss with them and guess what?

Today is the last day for exchanging xmas presents and even though my d40 was bought in early December they offered to swap out as I had a problem.

Result.
