Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

I have the Nikon 18-200 lense and it will not autofocus on my D80. I tried other lenses on the camera and they auto focused, so I presumed it was the camera. I sent it for repair, received it after being in the shop and the the 18-200 lenses still doesn't autofocus on the camera. Ideas?

Answers :

Is the lens autofocus switch set to Manual?

I receive the same "errr" message. The photo shop said it was a bad contact, they cleaned them with an eraser and made sure there was good contact. Problem was slightly better, but still exists. I have to remove the battery to clear the problem, turning it off and back on does no good. You can actually feel the lense move ever so slightly. Camera has gone back to Nikon for a repair. Very disappointed at this point with this. Camera store acknowledged that they have seen many of these.

My theory is the plastic lens mount is not strong enough to support the lens and maintain a proper connection between the camera body contacts and the lens contacts.\015\012\015\012This problem is widespread and Nikon needs to own up to t ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

I have a Quantaray lense 28-105mm lense. This is the second lense I have purchased because the mount seems to be weak and it breaks so therefore won't work. I have been told by the camera shop that this cannot be repaired. I looks only to be a simple repair to me by replacing the mount which it only screwed onto the lense. What is your thought on this?

Dropped my pentax k100d. Lense is fine, Camera says card locked, will not delete or fire shutter. Sent for repair, was told circuit board was damaged and quoted £306 for repair. Is it possible to buy a new circuit board and have it fitted as I can not afford the quoted amount on repairs, Also this a great camera.

Your best bet is to try a local camera shop and have them fix it. Cameras are dangerous to disassemble yourself because of extremely high voltage electronics that can kill you if you touch the wrong parts. I had a K100D and it's circuits were also fr ... Pentax K100D Digital Camera
