Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?
Autofocus will not work,
\015 NIKON DX 18-55\015\012flash pops up, but shutter will not fire.\015\012\015\012which I switch the lens setting to M it fires but is blurry\015
The d40 takes a while to focus, make sure the subject is centered on any of the 3 focus brackets.next press the shutter halfway and wait until the camera beeps , when it does, press it all the way and the picture will come out crisp.
Camera wont let you take a picture until focus is locked, why are you using M (manual focus) if you expect autofocus to do it for you? In M mode it is up to you to focus correctly or camera will not take the picture.

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

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

Nikon d40 18-55mm lens will not auto focus. Switch on lens is on autofocus not manual and shutter button will not depress. Worked over the summer and our 55-200mm lens works fine so it's definitely not the camera. Any repair suggestions? Tried cleaning and still does not autofocus.

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

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 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
I have a Canon EOS 1000D, and I've had it for almost 4 years. Recently i started having problems with both my lenses. Autofocus works but through the everything appears blurry when "focuses" and thus I can't use manual focus anymore. In conclusion, everything appears blurry through the eyepiece but the lenses obviously work as the pictures come out perfectly clear when using autofocus. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

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

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
