Question about Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera
The focus ring inside the camera is a free-spinning lens that is controlled by electromagnets, with feedback from the microprocessor and sensor. When some dust, lint, sand, or dirt works it's way into the lens assembly, the ring can hang up, which is probably what's happening in your case. You can try to blow out the lens assembly with compressed air ($4 at Walmart) to see if you can free it up. If this doesn't work, you will have to have it serviced. You can try to gently bump the camera to free it up, also.
Take it into a local repair shop for an estimate, or contact Nikon Support on the web.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
