Generally, a Nikon AF body - lens needs something of contrast to focus on (i.e., the tux of a groom) and with a white wedding dress, the autofocus tends to go 'nuts.' You could pick a spot (a pew) to focus on and then turn AF off: during the walk-down-the-asle, just shoot when the person hits that spot. In a less-than-bright church, maybe your eyes and digital are not a prime match. You could return to a film camera -- the F100 does well in lower light.

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot

N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).

Blurry pictures

You did not say which lens or lenses you are using, but most auto-focus lenses have a switch for selecting manual or auto-focus. First, check your camera's menu settings to make sure auto-focus is enabled and then your lens to make sure you did not accidently leave it in the manual focus position? If it is in the auto-focus position and still not taking sharp pictures, switch it to manual and see if you can get it to focus correctly. It is also possible that your auto-focus alignment is out because your camera was bumped, jolted or dropped. If realignment is necessary, you can send the camera and lens to Nikon for repair or find a knowledgeable camera repairman.

My Nikon D40 doesn't focus not take pics

If it's under warranty, use the warranty. It takes my D40x about a half second to focus at most. I keep my camera in a dust proof case when not in use. I've had it for 2 years, it still works fine.

No autofocus

We tried the same lens on another Nikon (D90) and auto focus did not work.
We mounted a new set of lens on the original D40x, and it worked.
Turns out the 2 year Nikon lens (18mm-135mm) was bad. Nikon lens have a 5 year warrantee. The lens will be sent back to Nikon with no service or shipping charge.

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

Nikon D40X stopped auto-focusing yesterday

I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.
