It sounds like you had the lens set for manual focus when you took the A / M switch plate off. If this was the case then when you but it back together the little arm behind the plate is on the wrong side of a moving gear assembly.

To fix, remove the auto/manual focus switch plate from the camera (just the one screw not the ribbon beneath) Push the switch over to A. Hook the bottom of the plate back to the lens and put the screw back in. Done!

My Nikon Nikkor 18-55mm lens will not automatically focus even when set to "A". I have cleaned it with canned air and the manual focus works fine. I want to repair it myself as Nikon has quoted...


hi there,

the motor inside your lens might have been broken,
was it fell down or hit something before?

if it`s still in warranty, you can claim it to Nikon Service Center

hope this post will help

Nikon 18 to 55 lens wont focus


Check to make sure the manual focus/auto focus switch on the lens is set to A. Make sure the lens is completely mounted to the camera and locks securely. If this does not help, or if the lens was dropped, then you should consider buying a new lens. the cost of fixing the old lens may be at least half of the cost of buying a new one.

Nikkor af-s 18-200 VR not focusing


Please check your focus settings in the camera menu. Play around with the focus point from Single to 11 points. Also, try Auto mode as a quick way to test if the focus is working

Lens mount plastic is broken on Lens


Unfortunately your lens is one of the kit versions which were built as cheaply as possible with a plastic lens mount. They were never intended to be repaired, but to be fair they usually seem to last quite well on the 18-55mm versions but the 18-105mm is heavier and longer and I've found that the plastic mount is particularly intolerant to any handling errors on this lens.

A professional repair will normally cost more than the lens is worth, but you can sometimes buy new replacement mounts.

Use your favourite search engine to look for part number 1C999-488. Unfortunately they're rarely in stock whenever I've needed one. You may also want to search for a scrap lens with a good mount which you can replace yours with, but scrap lenses of the correct type usually have faulty or badly worn plastic mounts as well.

Carefully assess your lens before making the repair: unless it's in perfect working order in all respects except for the broken mount then you'll be better off buying a new or used complete replacement lens.
