My nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-200 mm lens will retract from 200mm to 50mml. It won't fully retract. Help pleaseeee(:

This could be due to either dirt/dust/debris that is blocking the inner workings of the mechanism, or some physical damage to the unit from being dropped or overextended.

This article may be able to help you with a "do it yourself" solution.

In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting. Be prepared, this type of repair may not be inexpensive.

There appears to be dust in the lens because when I look at the screen I can see a little dot in the middle. Also it makes a weird beep sound when I turn it off and sometimes the lens will not go back in...

Yep, you have dirt / grit inside your camera. It would be best to stop using it now to prevent further damage. Then contact a local camera shop that is able to disassemble your camera enough to get the dirt removed from the interior of the camera, as well as to flush the grit from the lense assembly. Wolfs camera used to be able to do this, as well as Barry's, consider using one of those if they are nearby.

Whenever I go to use the camera, in all settings, the f stop just flashes and the camera refuses to take the shot. is there a simple solution or do i need to go to specialist repairers? this happens with a...

This usually means your camera is not communicating with the lens properly. Inside the body of the camera - directly above the opening for the lens mount - are 7 square / rectangular pads. These pads are the electrical contact points, that when mated to the corresponding pins of an automatic Nikon (or compatible) lens, provides the signals to set / confirm f-stop, focus, etc.

Since this is occurring on several lenses, unless you're failing to install the lenses fully into the body, the issue probably lies with the camera body itself. There may be an issue with dust, dirt or oxidation on these contacts - or a problem inside the camera - that is interfering with the those signals. You can wipe these contacts with an alcohol prep pad in an attempt to dislodge any dust and dirt. Clean any lenses used on the camera as well - as dust and dirt on the camera contacts means it's probably been transferred to the lenses, too. Oxidation is a bit trickier to tackle - because the camera is wide open to collecting anything that drops into it. If cleaning with an alcohol prep doesn't solve the problem, I'd contact Nikon support for their suggestions or to arrange for repair.

Good luck!

The lense will come out

Lens problems can be caused by a number of happenings. If the camera has been dropped, or some kind of impact such as when in a purse or pocket, then being hit which may not seem much at the moment, but can cause problems.
Lens problems can also be the result of something such as water damage to the camera. If any moisture has been introduced into the internal parts of the camera, damage can result, some of which can cause problems to the lens controls or circuits. Any debris such as sand, dirt or dust can cause damage to the internal workings of the lens.
If nothing works, the camera is only good for parts or repair and can be sold for such on sites such as Ebay.
Always use a padded camera bag such as a zipped type. Also it should always be a common practice to use extra care in the use of such electronic and mechanical devices.

Fd 50mm 1:1.8 s.c. Dirt on inner surface of inner-most lens element

You can clean this off by opening the camera and GENTLY blowing it out with canned air. DO NOT tilt the can. The moisture will damage your lenses.

Dirt on the inside of the front lense

Hello, I very much doubt that a small piece of dirt on the lens is a problem. It is more likely that your sensor needs to be cleaned. Sensor dirt is more visible at small (f11 to f32) apertures. I expect that you are shooting bright snow with a small aperture & this is why you are seeing the problem. To check, try the following.
Set camera to Av, ISO 100.
take some photos of the sky, a blank wall, or some other featureless surface, as follows:
1 - Set aperture to highest possible f - number.
2 - set aperture to lowest f-number.
3 - repeat 1 with a different lens
4 - repeat 2 with a different lens.

I expect that you will see photo 1 and photo 3 will have identical smudges of dirt on them. Photos 2 and 4 should have no smudges. If this is the case, your problem is dirt on the camera sensor. The only way to fix it is to clean your sensor.

Lens won't in on camera and makes clicking sound.

When you dropped your camera, some dirt got on the outside of the lense or some mechanical part of the lense broke or dislocated. If some of the mechnical part of the lense is damaged, you need to open up the lense from the camera and inspect the parts. Look for loose parts, then clean it and put it back.
I had the same problem with my sony Cyber-shop, but it was not dropped. somehow one or more small piece of dirt got on the outside of the lense. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed for good.
While turning the camera off, I pressed on the lense (up and down motion) softly. After a few times, the lense retracted 95% of the normal retracted position. I then, pressed the lense a little harder in untill it was fully retracted. It has been working okay since then.

You should always keep the outside of the lense clean and do not drop it.

Good luck

Cleaning out dirt and dust inside nikon fg camera

FG's are pretty tough old cameras. You can use a cloth and a lenspen brush, but be very careful of the shutter curtain...its delicate and if you damage it you might as well get another FG ($30 or so on Ebay). My first Nikon was an FG-20...still works like new.
