I own a Nikon D50 and the 55-200 lens will not autofocus (lens continually extends then retracts but never locks into focus). Ive read that depressing the lens release button whilst holding the lens in place and swivelling the lens a couple of times sometimes works (cleans muck off the sensors). I tried this but to no avail. Any halp would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

Why don't you just clean the sensors properly? Remove the lens and clean the contacts on both the camera body and the lens with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. There's a 50-50 chance something else is causing your problem but try ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Hi, My Nikon D90 with Nikkor 18-200mm lens is giving me the following error message: Memory card is locked. Slide to "write" position. Any ideas how to correct this? Thanks! Jennifer

Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch i ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

My Nikon D-40x has an auto focus that won't auto focus. Becasue it won't focus, it won't take a picture with the lens set to that mode. One day the camera worked fine. I put it up in the closet for about 5 months while working odd hours. Took it down removed it from the case, charged the battery and it just won't work. It died all on it's own....Replaced the battery, same result.

I have a Nikon 40x and whenever I zoom in to take a picture, the picture is blurry. However, when the camera is zoomed out all the way the picture is clear. How can I fix this? Or is there something wrong with my lens?

Probably because at the longer end of the zoom range you are getting camera shake. On the wide angle setting shake will not be nearly so noticeable. Use a tripod for long telephoto shots or practise squeezing the shutter release really gently-like th ... Digital Cameras

Because of this it will not take any pictures and I cannot control the appiture or Fseting. Thank you, David MacLeod.

You might want to have a little look inside the mount on the camera body and make sure you haven't moved the little metal clip there. (I think it was on the left as you look at the open front of the camera). There was a thing on the Nikon web site ab ... Nikon Digital Cameras

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. This lens has worked flawlessly on film Nikons and, until recently, worked flawlessly on the D200. I am now also having AF problems with the lens. 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
