Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
The auto focus stopped suddenly in my 18-55mm lens. my other lenses are working properly. it didn't fall or get hit. any idea what might be the problem?
hello guys..i am a camera technician, and i know that every one who has 18-135 ...suffering from af problems..actually this problem accurs du to fialure of "af encoding sensor" it self in side lens..so there is no solution from out side.I think that nikon r&d labs invents new experiments on our pocket....&....this is a proof.so it is adviced to not to buy any nikon lens based on "SWM" TECHNOLOGY....for peace of mind...

I too have the same auto focus issue. But the problem is intermittent.
Called Nikon today. They suggest:
- call when the camera is acting up
- be ready to give them the serial number
Apparently they are available 24 x 7 and will troubleshoot over the phone...

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.

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny
