D90 Nikon autofocus problems

\015 I bought my Nikon D90 in Washington at Penn Camera store in february 2009. Now I returned to Suriname (South America) and Auto Focus does not respond or responds not accurately. (not a heat problem, bacause it worked fine till end july 2009)\015\012If I focus manually, i get better pictures, but that is not why I bought the camera for.\015\012The lens is a Tamron 18-270mm and even changing to original nikon kit-lens I still had the problem.\015\012I read many reviews complaining about the focus problem. Most obviously, the switch is set to focus automatically on both camera and lens, so it should have something to do with de camera itself (manufacturer?). Also the settings I double checked on camera.\015\012\015\012Does anybody have the same problem and how did you solve it. I can't send the camera back to Washington, costing me a lot and chance of getting lost.\015\012If I can just get some advice, I'll be thankful.\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012\015\012Aniel Gangadin\015

Answers :

Try a reset (hold down both buttons with green dots next to them) and see if that helps.

Also try cleaning the contacts on the lens itself (light rub with a pencil eraser usually works well).

I used different lenses and reset the camera setting to the factory original, but no help. Thank you for solving the problem... Hamid Jakarta, Indonesia

This has nothing to do with the camera, but instead it has to do with the lens you are using. The standard lens you are using has an aperture of f/4.5 which is common across many lenses. If you wish to shoot in low light you need a lower "f-stop". ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is....

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand

Every once in awhile, our D90 hangs up and won't autofocus and take pictures. An error message is displayed but can be rectified by removing and putting back in the battery. The battery display usually says it's O.K (at least half full). Is this a battery problem or battery connection problem?

I have a new (Dec., 2009) D90. This morning I discovered that I had an "Err" message and a "CHA" message. Both were on the LCD panel on the top of the camera. I was not able to turn the camera off, and the only way to turn it off was to take out the battery. Upon reinserting the battery, everything appeared normal, but after taking one shot the problem reappeared. The interesting thing was that I took the camera body to a Nikon certified shop in New York, and they tried it with a different lens,
