Question about Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Lens

1 Answer

Distance problems Hello! I hope you can help me on that one! I just bought the Nikon 17-55mm on ebay, and it seems that when I use it with my D2H and SB800, the SB800 stays on 40mm mark all the time, no metter what focal length I zoom into. Also, when looking on exif file, it just says that I shoot the photo on 38mm, no metter if I shot on 17mm or 35mm etc.... How can this be repaired, and how much does it cost? Should I return this lense? Kindest Regards Filip O. filipmisiak.com

I don't think it is possible to diagnose this problem, so this is just a suggestion.  After checking out your website, I'm pretty sure that you know how to work your equipment so I think the usual dribble about making sure the flash isn't on manual, etc.  Well, that wasn't the suggestion, this is.  Take a cotton swab and clean the contacts on the lens with isopropyl alcohol. If the cause of your problem is a bad contact, that should take care of it.  If it doesn't work, I'd send the lens back straight away - because if this doesn't work, then who knows what is going to go wrong next.
Good luck

Whenever I take a photo, or try to, my Nikon D2H focuses and refocuses without actually getting a clear photo and won't let me snap a shot. Is there a setting that may have gotten changed to create this...


Pmlemar,
It sounds like a problem with the auto focus. You can narrow this down with some different tests.

1) Try turning off auto focus and taking a picture. If that works then try
2) Another lens, see if you can duplicate the problem that way. If you can, you either have an auto focus, or lens communication problem. If you can't duplicate the problem with a second lens, then you know the lens you were using is the culprit.
Thank you.

NIKON D2H ERR FAULT


I had a D2H with a similar error. The camera started giving an 'ERR' message almost from new but from reading various posts from other users I assumed it was a 'known' idiosyncrasy of the D2H, the camera would create an underexposed first shot after turning on. A colleague has the same problem on his D2H, and there are numerous references to the same problem on the web. Your post points to a similar shutter issue. My shutter failed completely at around 65,000 actuations, well short of the advertised '150,000'. In addition, the horizontal Main Command Dial had also failed a short time before, and it had cost me £135GBP to have that repaired.

The problem is down to the shutter and unfortunately replacing the shutter costs £349GBP in the UK, quoted to me by the Nikon UK Service Department, in Kingston, in March 09.

As for Nikon repairing it under a 'goodwill' policy, you may have better luck than me if you live somewhere other than the UK. I told them to keep mine, as attempting to charge me for the repair was the last straw, it wasn’t worth me spending another £350 on a camera that hadn’t been reliable in the first place. I had been planning on getting a D3 in October/November but will now probably sell my Nikon gear and go over to Canon, as Nikon don’t seem too bothered about their professional user base, and I certainly won’t be paying £5,000 for a D3X.

You might try cleaning the lens contacts lightly with an eraser. Make sure they are all springy to the touch. If this doesn't solve the problem, then new circuitry may be required.

Problem with Nikon D70


The error code "CHA" is telling you that the CF card you are using for storage is not compatible with the camera. You should consider trying a different card, perhaps a slightly older one that is not as fast.

I use a SanDisk Ultra II card, and that works fine for me.

LCD screen 'flicker'


Try setting the video output option to NTSC (if it's on PAL). I know this sounds funny, but I have heard some rumblings about this option somehow creating a LCD flicker. If it doesn't work, I apologize in advance for wasting your time! My camera is on NTSC and I haven't seen any flicker on the file numbers on the LCD.
