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

Lens not attached

\015 I juste get my brand new Nikon D40x and I fixed my lens and I have a ''LENS NOT ATTACHED'' problem. May I clean my lens? Do I have to ship my lens to the store? Is that a body problem? Please help me\015

Answers :

Is there a piece of tape across the lens contacts, like the film over a print cartridge head? I would think that is the only communication between the lens and the body.

Tokina AT-X PRO 28-80mm 1:2.8 lens has recently developed a problem when mounted on my Nikon D200. The images are way too dark and my only way to obtain usable images is to bracket heavily.

When I attach any of my Nikon brand lenses - no problems. Can you help? I really love this lens.

I have this lens also but with a canon mount and loved it to death when i had film. I started to use it on the digital and like your experience it worked well for a while then started to produce faulty registered photos.. too dark and some too light. ... Digital Cameras

My Nikon D40 with Nikkor 18-55mm (owned about 15 months) had a puddle of some fluid under it today (lubricant?) I noticed a fluid around the lens when you adjust it. We took the lens off, and reattached it but is says lens is not attached. Do you think this is a camera or a lens problem? We don't have any other lenses to try on it, and if the camera is not going to work, do not want to invest any more money in it.
