Question about Nikon F65 35mm SLR Camera
Hi. My neighbours Auto-focus just packed up on his camera. Fine one moment, just clicks now and won't take a pic unless in Manual. Changed the main batteries OK--Is there internal batteries for focus?? Tried another lens too but no good--anyone had this?
No extra batteries.
Usually this is a lens fault as the focusing gear is all in the lens. Clicking sounds as if a rear pinion has cracked. It's not uncomon in the 'prosumer' level lenses where plastic gears are used a lot.
It's just possible the fault is which the auto-manual switch. This usually has a mechanical clutch coupled to it which physically disconnects the gearbox from the focusing ring, as well as operating a switch to tell the camera to turn off the AF system.
