Question about Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 G AF-S Lens
I just purchased a Nikon DX 55-200mm lens for my Nikon D80 on Ebay.As soon as attached it to my camera, it started making this scratchy noice and will NOT focus in Auto mode. It will however work properly in Manual Monde. I hope I am not being taken for a ride for this seller. Any ideas?
Hi, I had this problem and found that the level inside the camera for the exposure shutter was bent inwards. This was preventing the lens from adjusting the exposure and also from autofocusing. To fix I just bent it back outwards

I hate giving out bad news, but it sounds to me like your focusing motor is broken. I am of course going on the assumption you have the camera set to AF mode, and the lens still doesn't focus. In my experience with SLR lens is that if there are scratching or grinding noises when either focusing or zooming there is almost always something broken inside.
