Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens

Hi,
I shoot with a D70 Nikon body.
My other lens works fine.
I checked out the above mentioned lens today, as I could not get it to work the other day.
Today I could only get it to shoot in manual, and in bright sunlight only.
All the other images look black.
I could also not adjust the F-stop. Camera will not allow it.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Sharon

The internal circuit board, or the internal harness may be at fault. You will have to send the lens to Nikon for service.

The only problem with doing this repair yourself, is that upon re-assembly you will need the Nikon software and hardware to readjust and calibrate the lens. Try sending it to PhotoTech Repair Service in NYC. They are Nikon authorized, and can do the repair under warranty if you still have it. Also if you join they're facebook page, they will give you a 10% discount.
Here is the facebook page link, it has everything you need to send it in.

Nikon D50 with Nikon DX 18-55 lens will not focus


Hi,
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,
Andrew

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.

Manual Focus won't work


Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.
