Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

Nikon D50 will not autofocus, the menue item 02 Autofocus is no highlighed and I can not set it


You should check two switches.

First, on your lens, be sure it's set to M/MA not M. That puts the lens in auto focus mode.

On the camera there should be a switch that shows C/S/M. If switched to M, it's on manual focus. Change this to S for single auto focus or C for continuous auto focus.

Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Nikon 28-80mm lens will not auto focus, D50 body works okay.


Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body with alcohol and a cotton swab. You could also look at the contacts on the lens, but normally the ones on the camera are the issue.

Nikin D50 autofocus


I figured out that when changing lenses my finger must have hit the little switch and flipped it over to manual focus. I changed it back and it now works. Thanks.

I can't focus with my nikon D50


Perhaps you have accidentally set the auto-manual focus to manual on the camera body?

Per.

PS. The r10 message is just a report of the current memory buffer status, not an error indication.

Nikkon d50 wont auto focus


the D50 will only auto focus with an AF-S lens...make sure you are using an AF-S lens.

Also, check the swithc on the lens is set to "A" not "M" ...

Also, in the menu, check you set the camera as autofocus, not manual focus

The auto focus is not working on my Nikon D50


I assume the AF/M switch on the body is set to AF as well? This has not been mentioned but the D50 has two drive systems for AF.

Camera won't autofocus


Auto-focus technology on this camera is controlled by several contacts on the mount that physically mate with other contacts on your lens. It sounds like your mount may be malfunctioning due to wear and tear (if cleaning does not work). This is between $100 and $300 fix depending on which part(s) need replacement.
