Hello. Let me begin by saying that you have selected an excellent camera there, possibly the best buy in the market place. I recommend that you take your camera to a local nikon dealer where he can test your lens and your camera in just a few minutes. It may still be under warranty
I think the 220MM lens is a non CPU lens. Change the camera dial to M and see if it resolves the issue.

When I attach a MC4 conversion lens to my 55-200 dx lens on my Nikon D40x camera body the camera has a hard time focusing and many times will not take the phote.
The camera is spec'd to autofocus with lenses that are f/5.6 and faster. The conversion lens is costing you two stops, so it's a wonder you're getting any autofocusing at all with a lens slower than f/2.8.Unfortunately, it's tough to try ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground.

I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus.
