Okay let me get this straight, you mounted a Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens on a Canon T2. That's the Canon Rebel T2 right a film camera? If so you just can't do that because you mounted a digital lens on a full frame camera it's a wonder it allowed a manual shot the A6 is an error code for Transmission can not be made. The reason the 55-250 works is because it's a film lens or "Full Frame" where as the EF-S lens is for an APS size sensor with a 1.6 factor.

CAN NOT FOCUS THE CAMERA WITH OR WITHOUT MEMORY CARD


The memory card has nothing to do with the focus system. Not knowing what camera you have, I have to guess.
Check the camera is on Automatic. When it is a DSLR or system camera, check the AF / MF switches, both on the camera and on the lens.
Eventually check in the menu if you can switch from AF to MF and in any case, switch to AF.
Check if you can focus manual, or perhaps he camera can't focus at all. Then check if you did connect the lens correct.

Which is better to get - manual focus or AF extention tubes for Nikon D3100


AF tubes will let you focus manually, so you don't lose anything by getting AF tubes (except for additional money, perhaps). However, most close-up work requires manual focus anyway due it the very limited depth of field, so you won't gain much by getting AF tubes.

Personally, I've never missed the AF capability when using my manual tubes with my Nikons.

Won't auto focus


Make sure the auto-manual focus switch on your camera is set to auto (A) and also make sure the auto manual focus selector on the lens is in auto (A) as well. If your lens contacts are dirty then this will affect the function of the lens as well. Clean those with either a lint free type cloth and alcohol or methylated spirits.

If the gears are stripped, it will require an experienced tech to repair.

That being said, there should be a small switch near the lens mount to switch between auto and manual focus mode's, be sure that that switch is pointing to A. When set to M, the little screw recesses into the mount so it doesn't try to engage, when set to A, it'll extend very slightly.

Also, Nikon has manufactured two types of AF lenses - with the motor in the body and with the motor in the lens, as with most newer lenses. Your camera should have a small screw on the lens mount that drives the focus motor between the lens and the camera, but I'm not 100% certain on that. Your camera can focus lenses with and without this type of coupling. BUT, if that screw/motor in the body is not functioning, you'll only be able to use lenses which contain the focus motor inside them, or manual focus lenses (you can manually focus AF lenses too).

Nikkor Lens Cannot Manual Focus


It sounds like you had the lens set for manual focus when you took the A / M switch plate off. If this was the case then when you but it back together the little arm behind the plate is on the wrong side of a moving gear assembly.

To fix, remove the auto/manual focus switch plate from the camera (just the one screw not the ribbon beneath) Push the switch over to A. Hook the bottom of the plate back to the lens and put the screw back in. Done!

Manual Focus won't work


Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.

Sounds like you need to get your camera fixed by Nikon.

However, you say the auto focus stopped working, you didn't switch to a lens that uses a mechanical focus linkage do you? The D40 only supports lenses with AF-S or AF-I type autofocus drives. AF-D and AF-G types without AF-S or AF-I don't autofocus.

Also, check that the A/M switch on the lens is in the correct position.

Manual focusing is quite difficult to do accurately with an AF camera. The screen inside the camera is not optimized for this. If you are sure you are focusing accurately but the pictures you take are still out of focus, the mirror may need adjusting. I can provide further info on this if you require, but if you're within warranty, i'd recommend that route first.
