Having problems with your Nikon D5000 Digital Camera ?
I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto.
The battery is full, so it's not

Lens error. On power up, lens moves forward and backward but does not focus properly, and then camera gives the display 'Lens error'. Appears to be an electronic autofocus problem, rather than lens motor jamming due to grit etc. No unusual noise, anyway, from motors.

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

I have a Cannon 40D 28-135mm lens. With the lens in auto focus, the lens will act as if it has found the target will focus, beep, ready to shoot. The lens then makes a focusing sound and moves just a little. This is on a stationary target with camera on tripot. Whats wrong?
What you can do is to get another sample, so see if that one focuses better in combination with your 40D.What you can also do is to let Canon calibrate your 40D with both of your lenses.Achieving focus is a task of both the lens ( t ... Canon Digital Cameras

Hi, ... Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera
Lens Problem I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects
The lens play is normal. The focus is not the fastest, which is a shame because the camera powers up instantly! There are techniques to minimize the focus lag if you choose to keep the camera (e.g. hyperfocal; pre-focus w/manual focus lock). Its a gr ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera
