Hi, my camera has been doing this for two years off and on, more often lately. I also found the lens sticking when vacationing somewhere warm and humid and tropical. I ususally fix it by gently pushing on the lens as I turn it off. It may take several times for the camera to correct itself. I found this website hoping to find a better solution to this problem, too, it sounds like the only solution is to upgrade to a new camera. Too bad, I love my 4300 and have been very happy with the photos taken. But, having a camera that can take 7mp and up is attractive and for the price of repairing this one. Hope this helps.

if you're using D40/X, make sure that the attached lens has built-in autofocus motor (e.g. code AF-S for Nikon, HSM for Sigma), because the camera does not have built-in autofocus motor in the body so only manual mode will work in most AF lenses..
if you're lens is already one with built-in autofocus motor, you might need to check the motor at a service center

I believe you're hearing the VR in the lens adjusting. Try turning the VR off and see if you hear the sound. If not, then you have a normal operating lens.

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.
Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to auto focus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
