Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
My 18-200 VR lens will not allow pictures to be taken if it is in the A/M mode, but works as manual focus lens if it is in the "m" setting on the lens. Other lenses work with body. The camera view finder says: r 9 in lower right corner. I think this ia an electronic problem with the particular lens. It is only 2 months old. NOt dropped or any damage. How do I find error message codes?

If a lens has an "A - M" switch, move it to "M" to manually focus. If the switch
- M " then leave on M/A (unless you're going to be taking several or more in manual mode), as these lenses may be focused manually at any time in either position. As soon as you tap
the shutter button in M/A you return to autofocus.
More advanced lenses, like the 18-200mm, 70-300mm VR and 18-135mm, and any lens with an M/A position, may be focused manually at any time without moving any switches. Leave them in their A or A/M positions.
I hope this helps and good luck!
