In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.

By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.

Could you confirm that this is a G lens (without an aperture ring)? If so, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera.

My nikon 70-300 mm g lens has a mold inside. how can i clean it


Unless you have the necessary tools to properly dismantle and assemble the lens that job is best suited for those that do. Even if you did manage to get it apart the chances of getting it back together and aligned properly while working on the kitchen table would be slim to none.

My Nikon Nikkor 18-55mm lens will not automatically focus even when set to "A". I have cleaned it with canned air and the manual focus works fine. I want to repair it myself as Nikon has quoted...


hi there,

the motor inside your lens might have been broken,
was it fell down or hit something before?

if it`s still in warranty, you can claim it to Nikon Service Center

hope this post will help

Nikkor Lens Cannot Manual Focus


It sounds like you had the lens set for manual focus when you took the A / M switch plate off. If this was the case then when you but it back together the little arm behind the plate is on the wrong side of a moving gear assembly.

To fix, remove the auto/manual focus switch plate from the camera (just the one screw not the ribbon beneath) Push the switch over to A. Hook the bottom of the plate back to the lens and put the screw back in. Done!

Small piece of clear white plastic lodged in the viewfinder


Check the mirror in the camera for any debris, or the lens. Sometimes a quick brush off works wonders!
