Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

My 18-55mm lense will no longer auto focus. Possible sand issue? How can I get it cleaned/repaired???


Answers :

The D40 has a AF / MF switch next to the lens.. It may have been moved to the MF (Manual Focus) position or in-between the two settings.
\015\012Move the switch back and forth to both settings a couple of times and then set it to AF (Automatic Focus).
\015\012
\015\012Not sure if you have other lenses, but this is the solution if you only have this lens or it's the only one you cheched.

Hello there, i have a tm700 from panasonic and it seems like the camcorder has some focus or depth of field issues, it always been working good until last week when i turned it on everything is out of focus, i tried geting focus back with auto focusand tried it with focus ring but it just seems impossible. only things that are focus are the things about an inch from the lense and i can get it focused if i zoom in a little... its odd because nothing really hapenned to the camera that could have


Inside the lens assembly, the focusing ring is controlled by electromagnets with feedback from the microprocessor and CCD sensor. Many things can effect the focusing circuit, but the most likely things would be any dirt, dust, or lint obstructing t ... Digital Cameras

I cannot get my camera to focus on anything further than about 20metres either on auto focus, infinity or manual focus. Focus seems to be ok on closer distances. For a period of time today I had a Lense Error message onthe monitor screen, this message has now disappeared. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Regards James Kirk [email protected]

Camera worked great since Dec. 2005. When camera was brought back from the beach, since then photos are not in focus. Looking through the viewfinder is not in focus either. I loaned it to my granddaughter. Was assured camera did not get wet. Have blown compressed air in all crevices on the outside to remove possible sand. Camera had stopped with zoom lens out, not retracted. I replaced battery pack. Everything else seems fine with the new battery pack, but the focus.

Auto focus no longer works. Every time I turn the camera on, I get the ''Please turn camera off and then on again message''. When I do that, it can focus in the default lens position, but as soon as I move the lens, it is not able to focus. Battery is fully charged. All settings were reset to default. Formatted SD, and upgraded to V1.2 software. Still no help.

I have a Nikon D60 and my autofocus has stopped working. It is not because of the lense because i have tried other lenses and the auto focus won't work with them either so it must be an issue with the body.


You should check custom menu setting 2, and make sure it's set to one of the auto modes. Make sure the lenses you are using are AF-S and not regular AF lenses. The D60 has no autofocus motor, so autofocus only works with AF-S lenses. \015\012 ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

Yes, they will work. As you pointed out, they will not autofocus, but everything else will work, most importantly the exposure metering.Bear in mind that the D5000 sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. The lenses will seem longer o ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

The lense on my FinePix V10 is stuck on the out position and will not go back in when I turn my camera off. The screen says Focus error. Is there something I can do or do I need to take it in to be worked on. I love this camera and hope to be able to get it repaired. Is this possible? I have had it for about 2years.

All of a sudden every picture I take with the 55-200 zoom lens is blurry and slightly out of focus. Pictures with the 18-55 lens are still sharp. I have been using that 55-200 lens for years for sports shots, and have never had any problem. I get the same blurriness shooting in both the auto sports setting and in shutter priority. It is a brand new issue. Could it be the AF servos starting to go in the lens, or am I doing something stupid?


Simplest answer is that you may have accidentally flipped the focus switch (A/M) on the lens to M. This turns off autofocus for that lens (which you might need to do if autofocus just can't resolve the image). Try turning it back to A.Ano ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I have a new k20D I have had it less than a week and I can't seem to get the auto focus to work. I can manually focus but when on auto I get the red square for a second and then it goes off it does not move the lens into focus and it does not beep. I am wondering if I have a setting wrong but I reviewed the manual and I don't think I am missing something but maybe I am.


Does your lens have a ring on it with various lens openings marked on it such as 3.5, 22 etc.? If so, it should also have a "A" setting which is where you should have it. Also, I'm assuming your lens is an auto-focus lens. ... Pentax K20D Digital Camera

Focus Problem Dear folks, I just bought a (new) Canon A75, and it doesn't seem to focus. At all. Even on manual focus, not only can I not get it to focus properly, the focus doesn't change at all. When on AF, it doesn't beep like the manual says it should, and the yellow light blinks, as it's supposed to when there's a focus issue. The focus assist light is working. Can anybody think of anything I should try? The manual is of no help. This is my first digital camera, so I'm not ruling out the po


I'm not sure on the problem, but one thing to check on the front of the A75 it also uses an IR beam to set focus. It's a little circular dot under the flash on the right side. It will light up red when in use to project the IR beam. Make sure you ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
