Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
Newer Nikon D40 camera with 18-200 VR. Won't autofocus but sounds like it is trying. Manual focus ok.
Which lense are you using?
Non AF-S and non AF-I lenses will not autofocus at all
The old 300 mm f/4 AF has to be put in the M position to focus and it only focuses manually.
let me know

Tips for a great answer:
If a lens has an "A - M" switch, move it to "M" to manually focus. If the switch
- M " then leave on M/A (unless you're going to be taking several or more in manual mode), as these lenses may be focused manually at any time in either position. As soon as you tap
the shutter button in M/A you return to autofocus.
More advanced lenses, like the 18-200mm, 70-300mm VR and 18-135mm, and any lens with an M/A position, may be focused manually at any time without moving any switches. Leave them in their A or A/M positions.
I hope this helps and good luck!
