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

Nikon D40 will not focus

\015 Suddenly, my crisp images are all blurred...it's not a setting because even when I look through the viewfinder, it's blurred before I even take the image...doesn't matter which way I turn the focus lens. One way makes it super blurred, and the other way makes it fuzzy. It has never been dropped. I took the lens unit off and put it back on..that didn't help. The lens are all clean.\015

Answers :

On the right side of the view finder there is a little bar. Make sure it is all the way down. If it is in the up position then it will make the viewfinder, shouldn't make the images blurry though. Also make sure it is in AF not MF (auto focus and manual focus).
I have a question for dream3bcop.
\015\012the little bar thing worked for me. it was up for some reason, and when i put it down, my focus wasn't fuzzy anymore. so what exactly does this little bar do?
