Question about Nikon D5000 Digital Camera
Inside the lens assembly, is a circular, edge-geared focusing lens, with electromagnets on it. It has to be able to spin freely to focus, and focuses with signals from the focusing system and cpu, etc. When any dust, lint, sand, etc. get inside, it can impede the lens from turning freely, or jam it. Your best shot at fixing this yourself is to get a can of compressed air ($4.00 at Walmat, and also cleans your computer vents too). Hold the camera with the lens facing down, and spray upward into the lens assembly with the lens extended. Hopefully, you'll free it up.
If this doesn't work, the camera will require a labor-intensive disassembly to fix it. If you can't live with it and have to get it fixed, get an estimate first. Often they just replace the whole lens assembly, and that can be expensive for parts, as well.
Hope it's just some lint- good luck!
