Question about Cameras
Hiya, I have the Nikon D50 with the default 18-55 mm lens. Recently, sometimes when I turn it on, the lens won't respond. So even though the body is on (I can review old pictures, etc), the lens won't work (it doesnt autofocus and it won't let me change the ap or shutter speed). Also, the LCD screen at the top of the camera says "OFF" After a while, the lens starts to respond again. Sometimes when I turn the camera off and then back on, it always works (but not often, so i'm not sure if turning it off and then on again is actually a solution, or if it's a time thing) I think it might be a problem with the lens? But I'm not sure. Perhaps the lens to body connection isn't working? I'm waiting to get a second lens to check this hypotheses. Any help would be really great. I'm missing really great opportunities to take great shots! You can not zoom the lens... It appears to be locked in position.I have removed the lens from the bottom and I am still unable to twist the zoom ring?? any suggestion would be welcome

SOURCE: Nikon D50 Lens won't work
I have a D50 as well but never experienced this problem. One thing to check as you already mentioned are the metal connections between the lens and the camera body. Make sure they're clean and shiny. Another thing to try would be switching between AF and MF modes on the lens itself.

When you get a flashing EE, it means there is an Eror somewhere. Most cameras have a botton you press to reset it. Usually it is the battery check button. Try that. Also try taking the lens off the camera, unlocking the aperture ring, remount the lens and then lock the aprture ring to the minimum F stop. I think this should solve the problem.

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.

Hi i am sagha from mumbai,Being a technician i can suggest you that this problem is not solvable by yourself. It has got a broken film PCB inside your lens.It is getting partially connected when on 24 mm so hurry get it repaired from recognised repairer or else will show error on all focal lengths.All the best
