Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

My Nikon D50 locks up intermittently

\015 Hello,I shoot all my jewelry on automatic and autofocus settings. Lately, however, my Nikon D50 just locks up; when I press the shutter release, nothing happens ( not even focusing!). When this occurs, I notice that there is a flashing "OFF" showing on the lower left corner. My manual does not mentions anything about this problem.This problem comes and goes. I wonder if this could be simply the battery reaching the end of its life? What do you think????Thanks, Catherine.\015

Nikon D50 I have been reading through Fixya to try and find a similar problem. I have a Nikon D50 and have been using it with no problems for over a year. However, now when I try to take photos in AF, nothing happens. It locks up. So, I have to try to take photos in manual. Some come out OK and others not. Very frustrating as I missed lots of xmas pics. When I hit the AF-L button, it seems to work in AF mode. Any suggestions?? [email protected]

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.

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics. Also, the camera has locked up while I was trying to set menu options several times over the last couple of days. I have simply turned it off and then back on again to get it w

Appreciation CanadaBruce I was browsing the website since I have a Nikon D80. Considering the fact that Nikon sells this as an amateur camera (meaning not a cheap solution), I suspect their Q&A and test wings are probably getting a lot of flak internally for the problems its users experience intermittently. Besides the F-err with 18-135 lens, I have not experienced other problems yet. I hope and pray to whatever powers there be it stays that way. One way I have tried to get around this problem i
