There's probably nothing you can do yourself...you need to send or take it in for service. Contact Nikon for the nearest service center.

I have a "Lens Not Attached" message when the AF-S Nikkor DX 18-55mm Lens to my Nikon D5000. Other lenses work fine and the lens appears to be attached correctly.


Apparently the lens is faulty. Or it may have dirty contacts.

Take the lens to a camera store and try it on one of their cameras. If you get the same error, the lens probably is faulty.

After dropping my nikon d5000 camera the lense doesn't seem to fit


If you drop one, the main components that can get damaged are the lens elements, the focusing ring, the aperture ring, the lens mount and the filter mount. Some of these components are much easier to fix than others.

Why wont my Nikon af nikkor 70-300mm G lens autofocus its self with my D5000 camera


The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens to have one. The old 70-300mm G lens does not have a focus motor, relying on the camera to have one. Thus, this combination will not autofocus.
The newer 70-300mm AF-S G lens, as well as the even newer 70-300mm VR AF-S lens, do have the autofocus motor and thus will autofocus on the D5000.

DOES SIGMA 70-210MM UC MF FIT AND USABLE ON NIKON D5000


Sigma makes lenses for a variety of cameras. If the lens has Nikon mount then it will fit onto the D5000. However, it's a manual focus lens so naturally you won't get autofocus. The lens also lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera, so you will get no help from the camera's exposure meter and you'll have to shoot in Manual exposure mode.

Will the Quanta 28-200 for the Nikon n75 work on the Nikon D5000?


Yes and no. I assume the lens is of more or less the same vintage as the N75? If so, the lens will fit onto the D5000. All of the camera's exposure and metering modes will work properly. However the lens lacks an interal focus motor and thus will not autofocus on the D5000. You can focus manually, and the green focus indicator in the viewfinder will continue to work.

Nikon auto focus lens not working, only in manual


What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.

Lens works fine in manual focus on Nikon D5000 but won't autofocus.


The D5000 needs an AF-S lens to autofocus.
Nikon have not fitted the mechanical focus drive to the D5000.
