Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera
I bought my D50 back in 2006, but took about a year hiatus from it due to my only lens breaking. I bought a new lens this year for it and used it for about 3 days before the autofocus stopped working. I can use the AE-L AF-L button beside the viewfinder and it will autofocus fine, but when I half-press the shutter, it doesn't autofocus at all. What I'm wondering is if someone would know whether that denotes a problem in the lens I just bought, or the camera body itself. I guess I'm hoping its the lens since that's still covered in the warranty, but any answer would be extremely helpful. Thanks for your time.
Well, a friend of mine was able to fix mine fortunately. I am such a beginner with cameras that the only thing that was wrong with mine was a setting in the menu (d'oh!).. Yours sounds really weird though and I wish I knew more about cameras to be able to help you. I'd suggest taking it to a camera store soon and asking if this is a common issue or if they know what part could control such odd behavior. Hopefully someone else on here will read yours and post some better advice, sorry I don't know enough to help, good luck with it though!

I am having a similar problem with my D50's shutter. My problem seems to be related to the position of the camera. If I rotate the camera vertically to the left - it functions fine. Rotated to the right - it acts as is as if the shutter button is not working at all. Horizontally positioned - the shutter works about 85%of the time. Is your problem positionally influenced as well?
