This is not a do-it-yourself type of repair. If you try to do any disassembly of the lens yourself, you will end up with a table full of parts you will not be able to properly reassemble and it will cost twice as much to have it fixed. Send the lens to Nikon or a professional camera repair man.

Unless you have extensive experience, this is best left to professionals. If you didn't spend much, then you could "learn" on it, but if it is something you really value...don't do it.

SOURCE: Nikon 18-55 zoom lens doesn't autofocus

You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.

I have a Quantaray 28-200mm AF zoom lens Nikon, I use Nikon D80, are they compatible?


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

Sticky zoom ring on a Nikkor 18-55 AF-S Zoom. The zoom gets jerky at the 18-24 mark. I think it needs some lube but I don't know where to put it?


You would have to disassemble the lens barrel to get to the zoom sliders, and lubrication is not likely the problem anyway. The zoom mechanism uses nylon bushings sliding in a groove, and zoom problems are usually due to wearing/cracking of those bushings.

If it's still in warranty, send it in. Otherwise, the cost of repair probably exceeds the value of the lens. Sorry.

The zoom ring has limited use...maybe something stuck inside lens


If you are unable to maximize the zoom capabalities of your lens, the mechanical gears might have been jammed and or broken. Do not push it if it won't let you as you might break the lense. What you can do is to bring it to your local camera shop or service center to have it fixed.

Hi, can tell to me why my 18-200 af vr lenss go


The "problem" is that the lens has a zoom creep issue. If you are the original purchaser, and the lens is under 5 years old, you may want to contact Nikon repair facilites in Melville or El Segundo to have it checked out.
Some users on forums have claimed that Nikon fixed the plastics ring that contribute to the zoom creep. Apparently, using a rubber band around the zoom ring will minimize the problem.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

I need a manual for AF 35-70mm f2.8 D zoom nikkor - no idea how to use this lens.


i was not able to find a manual - this review may help http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/3570.htm
The lens consists of
  1. Zoom
  2. Focus
  3. Aperture
  4. Macro
1) Zoom - this is by push pull - so you push the lens out to wide angle 2) To switch to manual focus - will need to be done on the camera and then you can use the front control ring to focus - 4) also you can use the button to switch to macro mode - BUT only with the Zoom at 35mm - lens fully extended 3) You have an aperture range of 2.8 - 22 this varies the amount of light allowed into the lens - 2.8 is the most light - F4 to F5.6 to F8 - each change halfs the light allowed in - so changing from F4 to F5.6 half the light

For Nikon AF 24-50mm f/3.3-4.5D Zoom-Nikkor Lens I need instruction book. Specifically, there are dots side by side marking the apeture selected, left one yellow, right one green, what one is correct and...


The green mark is the index for the aperture setting at 24mm, the yellow mark is the index at 50mm. These really only matter if you are setting the exposure manually and using an external meter. The green mark is the primary mark -- as you turn the ring you will notice that it lines up with a number at every clickstop, while the yellow one is a bit off.

The pull down lever you ask about is the aperture lock. Autofocus film cameras and all digital cameras expect the lens to be set at smallest aperture (highest number). They will give an FEE error if it is not set correctly. When you turn the aperture ring to smallest aperture you will be able to slide the white dot into position next to the orange mark, and that will lock the aperture ring so that it is not accidentally tgurned while using or changing the lens.
