Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera
Not very easy, takes special tools and wrenches. Then the lens has to be re-calculated on special lens racks. The focus and correct lens settings have to re-calibrated.
This not a job I care for, but some do this work.
If it is an expensive lens, Nikon has a repair department. nikon.com and call the 800 number under support for the Americas, if that is where you are.
Search the Internet for your lens and get a service manual. Some of these will cost, but worth every penny.

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.

OK I just fixed it, thanks to Ken Rockwell.com who says:
"Once in a blue moon my Nikon 18-200mm won't focus on my D200. Manual focus works fine, but the lens won't autofocus no matter what I do. It's annoying!
Of course the camera needs to be pointed at something with contrast, lines or texture. Point it at the sky and nothing autofocuses. That's normal.
One time this was so bad I thought for sure I was going to have to send my lens in for service, since nothing would get it to go.
Then I discovered the problem: I had knocked the AF switch on my D200 to M. This switch is easy to knock and I had forgotten to check the obvious. There also is a switch on the lens which is not easy to knock, but I have left the lens set to M shooting at night, and I forgot to return it to A/M the next morning.
This fixes most of my problems.
Rarer is when the lens honestly won't focus. When this happens I turn the camera off and on. If this doesn't fix it, turn the camera off, press the lens release button and rotate the lens back and fourth a couple of times. This will clear any dust off the electrical contacts and focus returns."

lets start with the basics, try hard reseting it and try again, if that doesnt work then
try upgrading your firmware (if possible on your camera) and if that doesnt work then it may be the lens, but dont forget to spend a few hours trying to find a option for it in the meny
