Autofocus problem I dont really know how to explain my problem.. I got a Nikon D40 for Christmas last year and last week we went on vacation. The camera was working fine. but suddenly the camera wouldn't auto focus. Everything is set on auto.. I only have the lens that came with the camera. The battery is charged.. it doesnt even make a noise like its trying to focus. the wiewfinder bracket thingy lights up red but nothing after that. I am new to photography so I know I probably sound like
You have to hold the shutter\015\012down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus\015\012and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the\015\012shutter the rest of the way. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
My Nikon P80 Coolpix started to have problem focusing. Auto focus now only occasionally works (it can sometimes focus and the green "in focus" indicator would come on). Most times, the auto focus does not work (the display and the actual pictures are all blurred). It's not covered by the warranty any more (more than 2 years after we bought it). Any ideas?

I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus. It will not take a pic on auto focus but will focus and if I flip the A / M switch on the lens itself over to M it will take a pic.It will take pics fine with the 18 - 55 mm lens. It's nota problem with the Zoom, but with the autofocus. When it attempts to autofocus, it goes thru the extremes of the le

Nikon D200 refuses to auto focus with any lens it just doesn't do anything.
Does the camera body has a M/AFswitch? it would be located in front on the left side if that accidently gets changed to M your lens will not AF any more until you change it?? I know it sounds so simple but who knows!! Barry Brown \015\012 ... Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

Whenever I try to take a picture using "auto focus" option with my Nikon D40, (using the standard lens that came w/the camera), it makes a clicking sound and will not auto focus. But if I use it in manual mode it does not click. What could be the problem?
This camera focuses the lens by sending an electronic signal to it. If you hear a clicking sound, the lens is receiving the signal, but not responding. I suggest you take the camera & lens to a local photo store & ask if they could let you mount anot ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

My Nikon D5000 gives out blurry pictures and the auto focus sometimes does not work. I've sent the lens to be examined & repaired and today I tested it again after being repaired. Today I took a picture of a person standing in front of a wooden fence and instead of focusing on the person (which was my intention), the camera focused on the fence. The result: The fence is sharp but the person is blurry. What causes this? Is it the lens or the body? How can I solve these problems?

Focus problem My grandson just received a new Nikon camera for Christmas. He assembled the wide angle lens prior to doing any other set up. Now he can't focus it without the wide angle lens in place. The camera has auto-focus. Can you advise a fix? We tried the Reset button on the side ,but this didn't fix it. Thanks
The factory presets would not have been affected by your grandson doing as you describe. Depending on what other lenses he might be trying to use, many have a separate switch located on the barrel of the lens to turn auto focus on or off. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D200 camera. It's now 2 years old and I'm having difficulty with the auto focus. The camera focuses but it comes in and out and I have to depress the shutter several times to get it clear. What do I need to do to remedy this. Thanks a bunch
The auto focus works on the basis of contrast. If you aim your chosen auto focus square at an item that fills that square with only one color or shade of color light a blank wall or a solid blue sky the camera can't focus because it is trying to co ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear
I have similar problem. So I use manual focus (1m,3m,inf) & move camera for finest pix. On AF, the adjustment seem to go past sharpest image point but settles on a fuzzier setting. Is there any place that can make a repair? ... Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera
I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck
