I have the same problem. Did you have any success with yours. I even took mine apart thinking I could realign some gears. The gears are in the lens module in the very center of the camera. It is not so easy to repair or access at first glance anyway.

Nikon Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 D SIC AF will not auto focus anymore after drop


Hi Bob.
This lens does´nt have an internal focus motor, this only works with an in-camera focus motor. So, if it is stuck after drop, there is a bend over the focus barrel. This means the manual focus will not work neither. If manual focus works normally, there an electronic problem at the PCB (broken element).

Auto focus confirmation little green dot is blinking


Usually that means it cannot grab focus. That can occur for numerous reasons such as:
  • Subject does not have a defined contrast (all one shade of color).
  • Too close for the lens to work, each lens has its own limit on close focus.
More information from you will greatly help those that want to assist you.

Shutter frame rate drops to about 1 per sec on CH with MB D10 while using any auto focus lens. 14-24,24-70 or 70-200 and an older 20mm auto focus. With no lens or a manual focus, very old 55mm Micro, lens...


Wow, that's weird. Does it do it with the auto-focus switch on the body turned to manual? I shoot a D300 and know pretty much everything about it there is to know and the D700 is basically the same camera with a full frame sensor. The only things I know of that drop CH frame rate are shooting in 16-bit raw and it shouldn't kill it like that, using full-auto with tracking will also cause a lag in auto-focus but that still doesn't seem right here. If it only does it with the auto focus on then it may have trash on the AF screen in the camera and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the body switch to manual focus, remove the grip and shoot jpeg and see if it still happens. If it does, reset the menu settings and try again. If it still does it than you probably need to give it a trip to Nikon. If it quits than start putting things back one at a time until you figure out what is doing it.
Somebody told me that Nikon will clean the pro cameras for free once a year while under warranty, I haven't looked into it yet to make sure.

You have your own answer - the lens is damaged, probably beyond economic repair.

I need advice on how to take Ice-hockey action pics...


Pictures get blurred because of several reasons:

Low shutter speed - occurs in low lightning conditions.
Auto focus not focused - occurs when pressing the shutter button all the way without waiting for the auto focus ready signal (green box)

To speed up the shutter do the following:
In Camera menu-Quality- Set ISO 100 for outdoor, ISO 400 indoor.

To avert focus problems, set camera menu-Rec- Focus-Infinity, Rec-Quick shutter-On

Hope that helps.

Nikon AF-s VR zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm


First the auto focus motor is in the body and not the lens so that will not be the problem. Unless you dropped the lens the problem is probably in the focus gear interface inside the lens ( it is stuck in the manual drive --that is why no autofocus-- and there is something preventing normal gear operation). Seems like a small problem but will require a look at the rear of the lens where the gear box is situated.

Blurry picture


I have this same problem. If I shut the camera off then on again it clears up. Someone from Fuji said that this is because the Auto-Focus is stuck on. They advised to half push the shutter button to release the auto-focus.
