SOURCE: Nikon D40 will not focus when shutter pressed 1/2 down

has the lens stuck up? put it temporarily on 'M" and try to turn the focus ring. this should be freely turning;

otherwise you may want to check the camera body to lens electrical contacts (silver).. a small dab of alcohol to a q-tip.. make sure its not that wet..then try to clean the contacts.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix: lens goes in and out of focus, then LENS ERROR

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma Aspherical lens fitted to my nikon d5000 camera


That depends on the lens. Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens has a Nikon mount then you don't need an adapter at all.

Since the Nikon lens mount has a deeper flange depth than other mounts, you cannot fit a lens with another mount onto a Nikon body without losing the ability to focus to infinity. Because of this, you won't find an adapter for another mount. Adapters are available to fit Nikon lenses onto other cameras but not the other way around.

If you're looking at the camera without a lens on it, there should be a little flat protrusion in the lower left. Make sure that it is protruding and not obstructed.

Dear expert have following problem, by puting focus distance to infinity the sharpness of far object is very bad, camera can not catch the focus. Before it wasn't


Check to make sure the lens is attached properly. Remove the lens by rotating it clockwise. Reattach the lens by aligning up the mounting indexes (white dots) and turning counter-clockwise until you hear a click.
Also, try increasing your aperture value to more than f/22

Nikon 18 to 55 lens wont focus


Check to make sure the manual focus/auto focus switch on the lens is set to A. Make sure the lens is completely mounted to the camera and locks securely. If this does not help, or if the lens was dropped, then you should consider buying a new lens. the cost of fixing the old lens may be at least half of the cost of buying a new one.
