You should be able to thread the part that fell off right back on. Then just screw it till it stops. It sounds like is missing a screw that keeps it from coming apart. Its not a huge deal.
I have older lenses and take them apart all the time to clean.
now that's assuming it came apart in the middle.
but if your saying it ell off the mount then we have a whole nother problem.


if it just unlatched then just push the button on the side of the opening where the lens attaches and twist the lens counter clock wise after it sits evenly around the hole.
if you are not new to slrs please don't offended Im just going off the fact you said it came off

let me know if im missunderstanding,
Caleb

This lens makes a whirring noise when attached to the camera body. It will not focus in either manual or automatic. The camera works well with the other lens.


Sounds like the focus mechanism is broken on that lens. There's a small screw on the back of it where it meets the camera body, the motor in the camera body turns that screw to autofocus. To me it sounds like the screw is turning, but the lens isn't focusing. You said it also doesn't focus in manual mode, so there is probably something inside the lens that needs repair or replacement. Your best option is to take it to a camera repair shop and ask them for an estimate, camera lenses are not the kind of thing you can take apart and fix on your own. Hope that helps.

I used the Nikon D90 with Lens Kit 18-200 mm, and I also bought the new Lens call Nikkor 75-300mm. But when I connected the new one (Nikkor 75-300 mm) in my camera and took some pictures, after that I...


That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.

My autofocus is broken on my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Is it worth it to have it repaired or should I just purchase a new lens? I can take pictures on Manual Focus still and all of the camera functions worth....


As it isn't really a very special lens, I wouldn't pay for a repair, which is likely to be more than the lens is really worth (you will get back a repaired second-hand lens, which might go bad again). Better to put the money towards a nice mid-range zoom.

Nikon D50 with Nikon DX 18-55 lens will not focus


Hi,
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to autofocus and take pictures with any other lens, then it means that your problem lies with the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning. I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens.

Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

Please check your focus settings in the camera menu. Play around with the focus point from Single to 11 points. Also, try Auto mode as a quick way to test if the focus is working
