Is the Auto/Manual Focus switch turned to Manual? This can easily be moved without realising that you have done so.

If not, get it checked out under Warranty. If you try to do anything yourself you will void the Warranty.

Good luck.

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

LOOKING FOR A Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D Autofocus Lens WITH VR.


There is no such thing. You can see a full list of current Nikon lenses at

You can see a list of current and old Nikon autofocus lenses at

You'll see that no 50mm Nikon lens has ever had VR.

Lens has lost ability to autofocus.


Nikon guarantees 5 year warranty to original purchaser. If your camera functions with another AF-S lens, then the problem lies with the 18-200mm lens. The AF motor unit needs replacement. Nikon should be able to repair the lens under warranty.
Make a copy of your receipt and go Nikon website to start repair service.

Autofocus no longer working. It will not take a picture in autofocus mode. As soon as you switch to manual, it allows you to again.


Your motor may have gone bad. Try sending it to PhotoTech Repair Service in NYC. They are Nikon authorized, and can do the repair under warranty if you still have it. Also if you join they're facebook page, they will give you a 10% discount.

My Nikon D80 will not autofocus


Fix your issue with these steps:
1. Try forcing the lens to rotate a fraction of a inch. This will sometimes help the problem. Or simply move the switch from M to A on the lens.
2. Try to switching to a single of the 11 auto focus points. Then try if there are specific points that are the problem.
3. If all auto focus points are fine, try updating the firmware or cleaning the sensors inside the camera behind the mirror. If a one or more points are out of order, also try cleaning the sensors behind the mirror.
4. Detatch the lens from the camera, by applying pressure on the release button and twisting the lens so it can be released. See picture
5. Set the camera selection wheel to manual (M), see picture
6. Turn the camera on, and start the liveView format. This will flip op the mirror inside the camera.
7. Take a dry can blower. Or if in lack, use an empty plastic bottle, without moisture inside, and use it to blow on the autofocus sensors.
They are located at the bottom under the mirror. NOTE Do not blow with your mouth, small amount of moisture will hit the CCD also located here.
8. Turn the camera off
9. Reattach the lens. Push the lens, white point to white point and turn the lens in place.
10. This worked for me, hope it also helped you ;)
