Problems with Nikon Telephoto AF-S Nikkor 600mm f/4D ED-IF I Autofocus Lens - Black?

Has any one had a problem with nikon 600 f4 ED-IF 1 autofoucus lens.
Problem is with the circuit board. An intermittent problem when you put the lens on a Nikon camera and pust the shutter it usally focuses. You wait your 15 sec and the camers shuts itself off. Now when depressing the
shutter button ithe autofocus should kick in but mostly does not. seems to me it has hung up or something. You take the lens off and back on and it resets. Contacts and mount was replaced by nikon but they do not seem to know how to fix it.To me seems not a psysical thing that can be changed by tapping on the lens. Most likely the circits are not activated in on of the chips.

It sounds like the circuit board in the lens is intermittant or there is a bad connector contact internaly where the circuit board connects to the harnesses.

Trying to find a cold solder connection on a multi-layer circuit board with SMD technology componts is not usually very feasible and reliable.

A major cause of this type of failure is from humidity, and or banging or dropping the lens unit.

I would start by changing the circuit board and the connector assembly inside the lens. This is an expensive fix, but it is effective.

If you request the described repair and offer to pay the cost, I am sure they will do it.

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?

That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

Lens has lost ability to autofocus.

Nikon guarantees 5 year warranty to original purchaser. If your camera functions with another AF-S lens, then the problem lies with the 18-200mm lens. The AF motor unit needs replacement. Nikon should be able to repair the lens under warranty.
Make a copy of your receipt and go Nikon website to start repair service.

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.
