SOURCE: Nikon N55 Won't take picture in Auto Focus Mode?

There was a recall on the N55 due to auto focus problems. You can do a google search or nikon.com email the support team and they will send you the paper. This is what I did, I wasn't charged since I had the correct papers. I, however, used one roll of film and my focus went out again! Mine doesn't even work on manual... If you want to try that maybe you will hae better luck than me. GOOD LUCK!

Try this (mind your camera to protect it from dust OR another small parts to get in while you opening):
1. Re-connect the lens and the camera.
2. Make sure the connectors is clean.
3. Connect it together again.

Hope this will help! Any questions? Feel free to PM me =]

SOURCE: Nikon D50 will not auto focus.

Apparently, judging from this site, this is a common problem for this camera. I had mine in for cleaning overseas and they told me the lens was too advanced for the camera-but it worked before!
It sounds like 2 possible fixes are :
#1: making sure the lens is fully clicked in
#2: switching the custom setting from AE-L/AF-L to AE/AF LOCK. This one I just found from a posting on this site and will try it later today!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK! Otherwise I love the camera!

SOURCE: the Quantaray 70-300mm lens

Only if you get the version with the built-in autofocus motor. The D3000 lacks a mechanical AF coupling so AF lenses which need to be driven by a motor in the camera body will require manual focussing.

Either way, you're far better manually focussing the Quantaray/Tamron 70-300mm: the AF performance is very slow, very noisy and hunts around a lot to achieve focus.

Although the Quantaray and Tamron versions are identical lenses, if you have to buy this low-quality budget model then go for the Tamron: it's absolutely no better lens quality (and usually the same price), but the manufacturer's warranty from Tamron is much better than Ritz and is internationally valid. If you resell the lens then the Tamron will have some value (not much though) and the Quantaray will be near worthless as it's not so widely known, and has a poor reputation amongst those familiar with the brand.

"Cheap" isn't always the same as "good value"...

SOURCE: nikon d3000 wont take photos, does auto focus only

Check the memory card, it could be damaged, or the contacts are not clean. If this does not solve the problem get the camera to a Nikon dealer for repairs, as it could be a software problem.

My 18-55mm lens won't auto focus...it works in manual my 55-200mm works fine on my D3000


-You must use a lens with internal auto-focus motor such as AF-S Nikkor, or 3rd party with built-in motor
-Is the switch`s been moved to A/M??
-The battery must have enough power to run the auto-focus motor inside the lens

Automatic mode is not working and the manual mode


The manual can be had from Nikon directly, here. The blurry results are probably due to an improper mode focus selection. Are you using a supported lens? A list of supported lenses is provided on pg. 157 of the manual, but this chart is easier to understand. Some lenses have an Auto / Manual focus selector switch. Some are shown as "A-M" or "A/M-M". Set an A-M switch to A or if A/M-M to A/M for Auto focus. Additionally, auto-focus is only supported on Nikon compatible lenses that bear the AF-S or the AF-I mark with built-in motors. If you've got a compatible lens attached, there may be a setting in the menu that is causing a problem. It will be far easier to simply reset the camera to factory default state than try to go through them all. See pages 119 & 124 for the Reset Shooting Options and Reset Setup Options procedure, and try shooting again.

Hopefully that will get you going.

Which book would be best for a beginner w/ the D3000 to learn the camera


There are a lot of good books. What's best for you would depend on many factors, including how much experience you have or don't have with photography in general and with other Nikons or SLRs.

Below are some recommendations. You might want to browse through a good bookstore and take a look at some of them.

David Busch, "David Busch's Nikon D3000 Guide to Digital SLR Photography"

Julie Adair King, "Nikon D3000 For Dummies"

Jeff Revell, "Nikon D3000 : From Snapshots to Great Shots"

Jon Sparks, "Nikon D3000: the Expanded Guide"

J. Dennis Thomas, "Nikon D3000 Digital Field Guide"

Darrell Young, "Mastering the Nikon D3000"

In addition, there is a free video tutorial on Nikon's web site:

I have a Nikon d3000 and a Tamron AF 55-200mm lens. I cant get the lens to autofocus with my nikon


The Nikon D3000 does not have a focusing motor built-in, relying on the lens to have a motor. The Tamron AF 55-200mm does not have the necessary motor; it only auto-focuses with Nikon cameras that have the motor in the camera body.

For Nikon lenses, you need lenses designated AF-S. For Tamron, you need lenses designated USD and/or BIM.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Auto mode is the point-and-shoot mode. It is not the camera problem. It is a common problem amongst nikkor kit lenses. Get your lens checked to the dealer, or any Nikon customer care. If its under warranty, it'll be replaced.
