Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
I have the same issue. After a period of not being used ( lens attached to body) the autofocus on my Nikon DX 18-200 VR attached to D200 wont work. R11 is showing in the bottom right. I read these articles and turned off the Long Exp NR, ... the number changed to r25 (Buffer apparently), but the lens will still not autofocus in ANY mode. AF light DOES come on tho. It wont shoot unless I manually focus. Lens set to A/M, VR on and NORMAL (played with these and it made no difference). Put the lens on my D50, and the Autofocus will still not function. when the shutter is half pressed, there is a "clicking sound" like it WANTS to motor but it just wont go. Batterys in Grip are both full.

I just encountered the same problem. The advice giver who forced the focus ring with autofocus engaged was right on the mark. (Thanks!) Actually, I didn't need to force it, just gave it a firm push. Voila!

Is the Auto/Manual Focus switch turned to Manual? This can easily be moved without realising that you have done so.
If not, get it checked out under Warranty. If you try to do anything yourself you will void the Warranty.

The little "r" number lets you know how many more photos you can take in a row before you have to let the camera catch up by writing image files to your memory card that have been placed in the cameras buffer. Shoot as fast as you can and watch the "r" number get smaller and smaller until it reaches 0.

Clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Testimonial: "Very grateful for the speed of feedback but it didn't work. Many thanks anyway. Any other suggestions short of taking it in to a camera shop?"
