Your camera is telling you that you need to phone or e-mail Nikon USA's Customer Support Department for instruction as to how to proceed. There phone number is 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687)9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. Based on my experience, they will suggest that you send your camera in for service.

I just encountered the same problem. The advice giver who forced the focus ring with autofocus engaged was right on the mark. (Thanks!) Actually, I didn't need to force it, just gave it a firm push. Voila!

This happened to me once on a D70... When mounting the lens, make sure it clicks in all the way when turning counterclockwise. Also it may be worthy to note that both the lens AND the camera must be set to autofocus mode ("A" switch set on both lens and cam).

Dan62, your camera will never be able to focus on objects with no contrast. The manual specifically states this. However, you can put the AF marker over something with some contrast, half press the shutter, so that it will focus, hold the shutter button halfway while you recompose the shot, and then press it all the way.

A note to others using the D40/D40X/D60 that are having problems with autofocus: please remember that this camera will not autofocus with mechanically driven lenses. It will only AF with "AF-S" or "AF-I" lenses.

SOURCE: Nikon 18-200 autofocus lens won't

OK I just fixed it, thanks to Ken Rockwell.com who says:

"Once in a blue moon my Nikon 18-200mm won't focus on my D200. Manual focus works fine, but the lens won't autofocus no matter what I do. It's annoying!
Of course the camera needs to be pointed at something with contrast, lines or texture. Point it at the sky and nothing autofocuses. That's normal.
One time this was so bad I thought for sure I was going to have to send my lens in for service, since nothing would get it to go.
Then I discovered the problem: I had knocked the AF switch on my D200 to M. This switch is easy to knock and I had forgotten to check the obvious. There also is a switch on the lens which is not easy to knock, but I have left the lens set to M shooting at night, and I forgot to return it to A/M the next morning.
This fixes most of my problems.
Rarer is when the lens honestly won't focus. When this happens I turn the camera off and on. If this doesn't fix it, turn the camera off, press the lens release button and rotate the lens back and fourth a couple of times. This will clear any dust off the electrical contacts and focus returns."

SOURCE: my camera does not autofocus

Check if you have any of following issues
1. Lens is not AF or AF-S
2. Try flicking the lens switch from A to M and back to A again, might solve any contact issues
3. In the menu system also you can navigate to select the manual or auto focussing. if this got set to 'Manual' mode by mistake the camera will not autofocus even if the lens switch is in Auto mode.

The lens will work with any Nikon film SLR, including the FG-20. However, the FG-20 is not an autofocus camera. Whether the lens is capable of autofocusing or not, you'll still have to focus manually. With a newer autofocus camera, such as the N75 and N80, the lens will autofocus.

What digital nikon cam works autofocus in a nikkor micro AF 105mm f/2.8D?


This lens lacks the autofocus motor, so it will only autofocus on cameras with the motor. This lens will autofocus on every Nikon digital SLR except for the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. It will autofocus with the D1 family, D2 family, D3 family, D50, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D300s, and D700 (I hope I haven't left any out).

Which Nikon S.L.R. cameras can I use my 70/300mm AF-S Nikor and still maintain auto focus, it is currently on a D40x


Every one (assuming the camera supports autofocus in the first place, of course--old film Nikons didn't). The lens has an autofocus motor, so the camera doesn't need one.

Film Nikons supported autofocus starting with the N2000. (Actually, the F3 also had autofocus capabilities, but used a different system). All the digitals support autofocus.

Just bought a new eos d600 . How do I turn on the autofocus?


Set the autofocus switch on the lens to AF. Press the autofocus button on the camera (right on the cursor pad) to bring up the AF mode. Use left/right or turn the command dial to select the desired autofocus mode and press SET.

It's in the "Changing the Autofocus Mode" in the manual (page 83 in my copy).

Hello - I am having an autofocus error issue.


Check the camera and make sure that autofocus is on on both the lens and the camera, if they both have switches.
Check the autofocus mode, whether it's single, or continuous. If it's in single, it'll only focus once per time you half-press the shutter release, continuous it'll continue to focus as long as your finger is down.
If that doesn't work, try another lens and see if the problem still persists. Otherwise, contact the manufacturer, as it could be hardware related.
Remember, cameras do not autofocus well in low light.

That lens is not an AFS type lens. The D40x camera only uses AFS compatible lenses. You could still mount and use it in M, but it will never give you autofocus or TTL flash.

Autoocus doesn't work


The first thing to check is that autofocus is enabled on the camera body.

The auto/manual focus selector switch is located on the front of the camera, just below the lens release button (on the left side as you look through the view finder). Make sure that the white dot on the selector lines up with the white dot under the AF (autofocus).

If this does not solve the problem, make sure that your lenses are set to autofocus mode as well.
