Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
Same problem at my nikon d200 camera. during foto shoot the autofocus stop working. either at continues/single shoot mode.
i trying with shooting mode A/S/V also not working.
any suggest what should i do before send it to nikon for repair??
First, if you can try the lens on another camera body, please do. See if the same thing happens on a different camera body. If it does, it's a problem with the lens. If not, you need to look at the camera. You can verify it's the camera by placing a different lens onto the body and see if you're experiencing the same problem. If it is indeed the body, I would suggest you take a pencil eraser and gently but firmly clean the contacts located on the lens mount. It's my experience (I also shoot with a D200) that often times when a lens isn't autofocusing, it's due to direty contacts either on the lens itself or the camera body. Cleaning them is a good start though and will narrow your issues down to the lens or the camera body. After cleaning, try the lens again to see if it's working correctly. If not, send it to Nikon in New York for repairs.

Choose how the camera focuses.
A (auto) M d (Shooting menu) M I Autofocus mode
A Single AF (default setting)
The camera focuses when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
B Full-time AF
The camera focuses continuously until the shutter-release button is pressed down
halfway. Use with moving subjects. The sound of lens drive movement will be heard
while the camera focuses.
