Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?
Autofocus on SLR doesn't work
\015 My Nikon D40 G-ll 18-55mm lens has stopped auto focusing. When I hold the shutter button down halfway the lens makes a quiet ticking noise as if it's trying to auto focus, but the lens won't move. Manually the lens moves freely without any problems. It's just the autofocus won't work. I've checked and cleaned the metal contacts on the lens and camera and they looked fine. Like two weeks ago the lens worked perfect, put it back in it's bag and took it back out two weeks later and it didn't work. Thanks.\015

Autofocus malfunction Hello, I have a Sony A200 SLR, that when you just turn it on and it checks the autofocus function, you can hear the noise of the motor trying to move the lens about 2 secs, but then it stops, and when trying to use it in autofocus, it does not work. what could be the possible solutions for it? I appreciate your help, and i ask you, since i read a post before to a guy from Iraq having a similar problem
Nice camera, and I've had similar problems before.What's more typical than anything else, is the gearing for moving the lens gets misaligned or jammed. This can happen with foreign object getting in, like fine sand particles, or the lens bein ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A200 Digital Camera

Yes sort of, we have several possibilities first is that if the lens is equipped with an auto and manual switch the switch may have been set to manual or it's positioned between manual and auto focus. Failing that I'd suggest you turn off the camera ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera
Autofocus problem I dont really know how to explain my problem.. I got a Nikon D40 for Christmas last year and last week we went on vacation.

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand

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.

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

I paid my $6 and got advice from a guru of yours on this question, and it didn't work. The question was: How to choose the metering when the shooting menu skips that item when advanced through the options. I was told to change the autofocus to the default full picture, and that did not work, nor did trying all the other autofocus options.
From what I understand, metering is automatic when used in any auto focus setting, which means it would be grayed out in the menu options. Not knowing what make and model camera you're using, I can't say much more than that. Look into your manual ... Digital Cameras
My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something. I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, ev

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob
