Check to make sure the manual focus/auto focus switch on the lens is set to A. Make sure the lens is completely mounted to the camera and locks securely. If this does not help, or if the lens was dropped, then you should consider buying a new lens. the cost of fixing the old lens may be at least half of the cost of buying a new one.

Hi. I have this same problem. Have you managed to fix it yet? I've been told that it would cost £100 to fix it, plus a charge of £20 to send it away.

SOURCE: On a new Nikon 18-55mm

Nikon currently lists two 18-55 AF-S DX and two 55-200 AF-S DX lenses. One in each pair has vibration reduction, the other does not. The ones with VR in the name have it, otherwise it doesn't.

VR isn't exactly an option. If it wasn't built into the lens initially, you can't add it later. A lens either has it or it doesn't, though if a lens has VR it can be switched off.

Your lens is a cheaply-built kit lens intended to be sold as part of an initial body and lens kit.

It's not built badly or with especially poor quality materials, but it's certainly not to the same standard as their non-kit lens offerings and so is not as long-lasting or robust as regular Nikon lenses.

In your case, the focus drive mechanism has broken, possibly due to one of more motor pinion teeth being stripped. If the lens has not been dropped or otherwise misused and is still under warranty then return it to a Nikon service centre for a free repair. If outside of the warranty, then in most countries Nikon offer fixed price repairs, but you'll find it more economical to simply buy a replacement lens. What's failed is not suited to a DIY repair

You can commonly buy new ex-display examples and definitely fully-functional used examples of your lens for a less than the typical fixed repair price. As you don't state which country/stat you live in, I'm unable to provide example prices.

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.

Make sure you set the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it. Without doing so, the lens will not communicate properly with the camera and thus you will not get the autofocusing.

Can't autofocus Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens


The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.
