Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
My D200 will not auto focus. I have gone thru the entire menu and still nothing. I have the Nikon 18-200 lens. Everything appears to be set correctly. It just quit.
If it's any consolation, I have the same setup and the same problem. I'm now at the point where I'm probably going to have to return the lens as faulty, but there are a few things it could be on yours which you might want to check.
Have you got the D200 set to auto-focus? The selector (on the front of the camera, on the lower left) should be in the S position (as opposed to C or M).
Have you got the lens set to auto-focus? It should be in the M/A position, rather than M.
Have you tried cleaning the contacts? Pop the lens off and give the contacts a clean with the appropriate equipment. Dust on the contacts could be causing a problem.
Failing that, have you tried turning the camera on and off a few times?
I've obviously tried all the above on mine, and now suspect I've got a faulty lens that needs fixing ... which really sucks! Good luck with it, let me know if you get it working.
