That usually indicates that the lens is not communicating with the camera. The contacts on the mount side of the lens may be damaged or dirty. If cleaning the contacts with an eraser doesn't solve the issue, you might want to try another lens to see if the camera is at fault. If the camera checks okay with another lens, then it is likely the the lens needs a new circuit board

I have a Nikon D40x and purchased the AF nikkor 50 mm f/1.8D lens a couple years ago, but find that it can only be focused manually. Is there any way to "turn on" the autofocus? I have not had...


Sorry, but the D40x lacks an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses AF-S. This particular lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera to have one. The only 50mm lens currently available with an autofocus motor is this one:

Earlier this week the Nikon web site listed a new 50mm F1.8 lens with an autofocus motor, but then it was removed. Hopefully they will officially announce this lens soon.

The D3100 can't autofocus with this lens. The D3100 does not have a focus motor, depending on the lens to have one. The AF-Nikkor 50mm doesn't have a focus motor, depending on the camera to have one.

To autofocus, you need lenses designated AF-S.

Nikon 18-55 zoom lens doesn't autofocus


You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.
