Question about Nikon Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX (silver) Lens
I have an Nikon D50 camera with a Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55 lens. The lens no longer auto focuses. It did at first but at some point it stopped working. Other lenses work on the body. Both the lens and the body are set to the "a" position.
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to autofocus and take pictures with any other lens, then it means that your problem lies with the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning. I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens.
Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,

Is the switch on the side of the lens set to manual or auto? Sometimes it's the little things like this that we don't notice.
