D200 not focusing and metering system not working
\015 Recently, my D200 stopped focusing on a regular basis and would focus every now and again. Tried new batteries, cleaned the connections, I think, and still it is intermittent. Also, the metering system does not change no matter where the switch is set. One other piece of information, when I am trying to take a picture, I get an r11 message. I don't know if it has always said this, or if this is new. Any help, anybody?\015

My d200 is picky about when auto focus works. It won't work for the shot I want, but if I turn the camera 8 degrees and try at that angle, it works fine. Sometimes turning the camera to manual, then off, then on, then back to auto focus does the trick, but not always. What is going on?
The focus ring inside the camera is a free-spinning lens that is controlled by electromagnets, with feedback from the microprocessor and sensor. When some dust, lint, sand, or dirt works it's way into the lens assembly, the ring can hang up, which ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera
Hi I have a Nikon d200 and with a Sigma 50mm Macro AF 2.8. The lens is a few years old. and it's the first time I tride it on the d200.

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus. After about 10 seconds the display reads: SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). I have tried recharging the battery, and leaving the camera powered down for an extended period. The owner's manual does not reference this problem. Any thoughts? Thanks you, Brian

Overexposure My Nikon D40x is WAY overexposing in AV or S mode. Does it need repairing? (a long trip to get fixed).

We have a Panasonic DMC ZS3 camera that has been working fine until now. We are on the North West coast of Costa Rica. When you turn the camera on, the lens, which was out when shut off, goes in, then comes back out. The camera screen tries to focus, then goes to a blank screen and says "SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). When you shut it off, the lens does not retract.

My Canon eos 1 n shows a bc error when I fire the shutter, it will AF, and meter the scene fine but then bc appears. I have been told by a tech that the shutter is fine, and that the board is fried. My thinking is if the board wasn't working surely it wouldn't focus or meter? It's a costly fix so I just want to confirm that I'm not getting taken for a ride, any thoughts.

Autofocus malfunction Dear Sir, I have a Sony Alpha 350 that is new and have been used for only a very short trial period. It has been working properly but it happened yesterday that after shooting some 100 pictures (not continuously but separate shots) that the autofocus system started to jam. When I switch it off and on again even after unloading and reloading the battery and that after minutes to cool the problem persists. The manual focus is working properly but I don't know what to do with

I have a Nikon D200 and the auto focus isn't working on any of my lenses. What should I try?

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck

Sometimes the autofocus doesn't work. It is switched to af. When I turn the camera on it will normally focus but after 1 or a couple of pictures it will not autofocus. If I move the switch to Manual I can take the picture and then if I move the switch back to m/a it will focus and keep focusing and I can take a few few more frames then then the auto cocus stops working again and I have to switch back to M and so on. I never know when it wount work. Thank you.

My Nikon D-40x has an auto focus that won't auto focus. Becasue it won't focus, it won't take a picture with the lens set to that mode. One day the camera worked fine. I put it up in the closet for about 5 months while working odd hours. Took it down removed it from the case, charged the battery and it just won't work. It died all on it's own....Replaced the battery, same result.

My Nikon P80 Coolpix started to have problem focusing. Auto focus now only occasionally works (it can sometimes focus and the green "in focus" indicator would come on). Most times, the auto focus does not work (the display and the actual pictures are all blurred). It's not covered by the warranty any more (more than 2 years after we bought it). Any ideas?
