Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Lens keeps getting stuck/needs a good tug to zoom past 25 HELP!

\015 My 18-55mm basic lens on my Nikon D80 was stuck when I tried to manually zoom. It eventually unstuck after some fiddling but is now sticking acting like theres something preventing it from turning everytime I do. AND very sporadically when I automatically focus it makes a screeching sound that almost sounds like a film camera, when mine is digital. HELP!!!\015

Hi Rachael_amor, If the lens will not zoom on the camera will it off the camera? If not then it has some grit, dirt, and the like in the lens. You could attempt to vacuum around the zoom however, I suspect it will need to go in to Nikon. That lens is not well weather sealed, it is a inexpensive consumer lens.

Water damage Hi, One of my kids knocked a drink over my camera and I have dried it out. The lens was not working, but seems to be now. But the picture is not good at all, and I can not see the picture I am about to take. It take photos OK just can not see what I'm taking.

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help.

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob

"whiteout" My exlim started to give what I'd describe as "whiteout" - ie pics just come out as if totally overexposed - when in the Himalayas trying to capture snow scenes. I resolved the problem by zooming in slightly for each pic, but this sol'n has now failed, and even at max zoom the pics are no good. I've run through the settings trying to ensure that all are reset to factory default - and have run out of ideas..... Seeing past correspondence about trying to get these fixed - esp near Cairn
