My d200 is picky about when auto focus works. It won't work for the shot I want, but if I turn the camera 8 degrees and try at that angle, it works fine. Sometimes turning the camera to manual, then off, then on, then back to auto focus does the trick, but not always. What is going on?


The focus ring inside the camera is a free-spinning lens that is controlled by electromagnets, with feedback from the microprocessor and sensor. When some dust, lint, sand, or dirt works it's way into the lens assembly, the ring can hang up, which ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t


I'm going to assume at this point that the camera has been serviced correctly. What I'd suggest is that you look in your manual and find where you can reset your camera back to the factory default settings. Okay here are a few thoughts that might be ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

My Nikon D-40x has an auto focus that won't auto focus. Becasue it won't focus, it won't take a picture with the lens set to that mode. One day the camera worked fine. I put it up in the closet for about 5 months while working odd hours. Took it down removed it from the case, charged the battery and it just won't work. It died all on it's own....Replaced the battery, same result.

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.

My D80 was purchased in April 2008 along with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom lens. The camera and lens worked flawlesly until this past week end. The cameral stopped focusing in auto mode with no warning. I did hear a whining noise when I tried a Tamron 11-18mm wide angle lens. The auto focus did not work with that lens either.

Focusing problem Until recently, I was able to look through the view finder and auto focus my image.

I never know when it wount work. Thank you.

Hello there, My Samsung ES55 recently stopped working completely (not turning on) for no apparent reason. I had been taking lots of photos, 153 to be exact, and then it just didn't work. It was still under warranty and when I got it back from the camera shop, they told me it had been dropped - which it hadn't - and whilst it was now working, they would guaruntee it any more. Now the camera works but the images are often blurred. I think it might be an auto-focus problem. When I try and tak

Bought a 3.5 macro lens.the focus ring does not work manually.This is the second such lens I have gotten(sent the first one back because of same problem).This is not corect is it?It works fine on auto focus however I should be able to focus it by hand if I want shoot different distances correct?

Short answer Yes!.. I am wondering if by chance you have the lens switch set to AF rather than M. It would be almot unheard of to not have manual focus, also to have 2 lenses with the same problem. No insult intended, but it sounds more like yo ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Auto focus no longer works. Every time I turn the camera on, I get the ''Please turn camera off and then on again message''. When I do that, it can focus in the default lens position, but as soon as I move the lens, it is not able to focus. Battery is fully charged. All settings were reset to default. Formatted SD, and upgraded to V1.2 software. Still no help.

I have a Nikon D40 which is coming upto being two years old. Recently I have noticed that the auto-focus will not work. If I manually focus I can still take photos but when auto is engaged it will not even try to focus and therefore will not allow me to take a photo. I have not made any changes to the settings and therefore I am concerned it is a hardware fault.

I have never had any problems with my camera, it is about 2 years old. Recently, all my pictures have turned out blurry, it seems like the camera is just not auto focusing.

Focus Problem Dear folks, I just bought a (new) Canon A75, and it doesn't seem to focus. At all. Even on manual focus, not only can I not get it to focus properly, the focus doesn't change at all. When on AF, it doesn't beep like the manual says it should, and the yellow light blinks, as it's supposed to when there's a focus issue. The focus assist light is working. Can anybody think of anything I should try? The manual is of no help. This is my first digital camera, so I'm not ruling out the po
