I don't know if you have tried this and it may sound stupid but a good few lenses have a little switch on them which you can switch between A and M make sure its at the A setting if your lenses has one

Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 D SIC AF will not auto focus anymore after drop


Hi Bob.
This lens does´nt have an internal focus motor, this only works with an in-camera focus motor. So, if it is stuck after drop, there is a bend over the focus barrel. This means the manual focus will not work neither. If manual focus works normally, there an electronic problem at the PCB (broken element).

18-55mm lens wont auto focus


If the lens will focus on manual focus but won;t on auto focus you may have a ribbon connector failure in the lens. This ribbon continually flexis as the lens moves in and out. Over time this can break and will probably need to be replaced. All good camera repair shop should be able to do this for you and this remady is one of the cheaper repairs to photographic equipment

How to clean the fungus off a Mirror on the inside of a 500mm Mirror lens


Unless you have a lens collimator and other gear needed to make sure you get the lens and mirrors aligned properly when you put it back together, don't even think about taking it apart. Take it to a reputable camera shop and have a trained professional do it.

Canon lens won't focus


If it focuses OK in manual but not in auto then you may have broken ribbon cable in the lens.

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.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

My camera can't focus when i press halfway down to focus before i press all the way down to snap the photo. it is only a problem with my 18-55mm lens. all my other lenses focus and take photos...


First off, try gently turning the focus ring on your lens while it is on auto focus mode (DO NOT force it). Sometimes a minor bump on the lens can cause the focus ring to come off the tracks. Try that and see if the lens start auto focusing again. I find that this solves the issues a lot of the time. If that doesn't give you any results then you'll need to take your lens to an authorized Canon service center for repairs. Hope this helps!

Using the lens


As long as the lens mount is compatible with the Olympus e410, you can use this lens.

It will only be limited by what features are supported through the camera body - I suspect that you will have to do everything manually.

Good luck.
