Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I am using a Nikon D40 with a Nikon DX AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 GII ED lens.
Have had the camera for 1.5 years, and it has worked just fine with the exact same set up until now.
When i press the shutter button half way down (no matter what setting the camera is on) it does not make any mechanical focusing sound and (obviously) cannot focus into any target. I cannot take any pictures due to this.
Has the lens stuck up? put it temporarily on 'M" and try to turn the focus ring. this should be freely turning;
otherwise you may want to check the camera body to lens electrical contacts (silver).. a small dab of alcohol to a q-tip.. make sure its not that wet..then try to clean the contacts.
