Pentax k200D auto focus manual focus button not working

Discover the location of the problem by elimination if you have a spare lens. If the second lens does not auto focus the problem is on the camera or connections to the lens. If the second lens works correctly then the first lens is faulty in the focus area. I hope this helps to target the source of the problem.

Iso to auto

On the back of the camera to the Right of the LCD there is a up-down-left-right-center switch. push the up one. (Labeled ISO) then use the same selector switch to select the ISO you want and then press the shutter half way down. If you are shooting in a low light situation, the auto focus sometimes will not work. Change the switch on the lens from AF to MF and focus manually.

Nikon D40 help?!

I assume the lens had the impact. The 18-55 lens has the built-in motors for auto-focus.
Try switching to manual focus (on the lens). If this works, the lens may not auto-focus anymore.
Try it and let me know.

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.

Focus Problem

Low light focus lock can be a problem with this camera. But in normal or bright light there should be no problem with auto focus lock. If this is a new problem, you should check to see if a setting has been changed. With so many options, it is easy to accidently set something that causes unusual results (been there, done that). First ... Go to the Setup Menu and see that the "All Reset" option is selected. This will cause everything to be reset to factory default each time you power-on the camera. Turn the camera off and then turn the camera on. Then take some test photos to see if your auto-focus-lock is improved. If that works, there is no need to check the items below. If that does not work, here are some control changes to try. Remember if you turn off the camera everything gets reset. That camera uses contrast detection for auto focus and it is normally set to "Multi-Area Auto Focus". Try changing it to "Spot Auto Focus" and do some tests, including with the camera set to one of the programs or manual mode. There is another setting called "Autofocus Area", you should investigate. Check your manual to determine what you can do with this control. There is another control called something like "continuous auto focus". Check the manual for further information. If none of the above help, it is time to see about some camera repairs.
