Please don't take this the wrong way but there is a switch on the lens for AF or MF. Flick this back and forth a couple times then back to MF and try to focus the lens manually. If this does not work and you still have the receipt. Lots of places offer some type of warranty wether it be replacement or repair. I would check with where you purchased the camera.

    At this point it seems as if the lens has a mechanical issue. With the sensitivity of the lens mechanics etc. I recommend highly to take it somewhere for either warranty or repair.

Its the problem of internall setting in the device that has got moved and needs readjustment for this.a local repair center can be required to open the unit and readjust the settings.to make the zoom ring work properly.

I would carefully try to get on the side of the lens with some twezers. Let me know if you can do that. This happened to me once. If not try to find something small.

Off the camera.remove the battery.then reinsert the battery.also if the battery is too old replace the battery.or charge the old battery complely.then while the device is ON just tap the sides of the camera and check out it should get started working.

What is the focal lenth on the powershor A1300


Your camera has a 5.0 - 25.0 mm (35 mm equivalent: 28 - 140 mm) lens with apertures from f2.8 - f6.9.
Unfortunately you don't have a manual mode or an aperture priority mode where you can set the aperture yourself.

Lens will not change aperture setting.. it's stuck on F4. Should be able to change to F2.8 Michael


You'll notice that the maximum aperture is specified as f/2.8-4.0. The lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.8 only at the 17mm focal length. At the 35mm focal length, the maximum aperture is f/4.

Does the lens open up to f/2.8 when you zoom out to 17mm?

This lens is a very popular focal length and still a "current" lens it's worth getting an estimate from a repair facility. It sounds as if the aperture blades have come apart, possible just worn out but I find that hard to believe after the more then 150,000 actuation I gave mine.

Cannot auto focus


It sounds like the circuit board flex has gone bad, It folds back and forth when you zoom the lens, And needs to be replaced by a repair shop and readjusted. Tony

Can't get F3.5 aperture on the 18-135mm kit lense on d80


You may be shooting auto and there is too much light. If you want to be sure you are shooting with 18mm @ f3.5 then shoot with aperture priority (the shutter speed will adjust automatically). Ususally at a wide focal length you would want a small aperature (smaller f-stop) so this should not really be a problem.

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.


In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

Focal length equivalents


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}I believe it is equivalent to a 35 to 210mm lens on a 35mmcamera. If you are considering a Nikon such as the D60, D80, D90, etc.,the standard lens sold with the camera is 18-135mm. This is not the sameas an 18-135mm on a 35mm film camera. The equivalent 35mm film cameralens would be 27-202mm (you multiply by 1.5), about the same as what youhave now. If I were planning to do wildlife photography, I would buy a usedNikkor ED 70-300mm AF lens on E-bay. You should be able to get one for$200 or less (the new price is $550+). This lens is designed for a 35mmfilm camera and is the equivalent of a 105-450mm when used on a Nikon digital cameras. Additionally, it is compadable with the automatic features of the Nikon digital camera bodies. This would give you an excellent portrait lens at 105mm and extra long reachfor wildlife. The fast shutter speed and stabilization circuit on thedigital camera should make it usable in daylight without a tripod. I havethis lens on a Nikon film camera and it is a superior lens. At a 1/1000second or faster shutter speed, I get sharp hand held photos.
