Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

My Nikon D50 locks up intermittently

Hello,

I shoot all my jewelry on automatic and autofocus settings. Lately, however, my Nikon D50 just locks up; when I press the shutter release, nothing happens ( not even focusing!). When this occurs, I notice that there is a flashing "OFF" showing on the lower left corner. My manual does not mentions anything about this problem.

This problem comes and goes. I wonder if this could be simply the battery reaching the end of its life? What do you think????

Thanks, Catherine.

Nikon D50 will not autofocus, the menue item 02 Autofocus is no highlighed and I can not set it


You should check two switches.

First, on your lens, be sure it's set to M/MA not M. That puts the lens in auto focus mode.

On the camera there should be a switch that shows C/S/M. If switched to M, it's on manual focus. Change this to S for single auto focus or C for continuous auto focus.

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

Nikkor 18-55mm lens on Nikon d50 locks up in autofocus mode.


The "err" is generally when you have the aperture set to something other than "F22" with the aperture lock on. As far as the lens, you should take a pencil and use the eraser end on the electrical contacts both on the lens and camera and ensure that they are clean. Often times, cameras will respond, but not fully, if some of the contacts have build-up on them. If this still doesn't work, take the lens to a camera shop or ask a friend to borrow their nikon and try using the lens on a different camera to see if it is indeed the lens or the camera. Doing this will help you determine which needs to go to the repair shop.

Check two switchs, one on the camera body and one on the lens. Make sure they are both set to AF. At least that is how it is on my D80

Sigma 170-500mm APO lens on Nikon D50 won't autofocus or shoot


When you get a flashing EE, it means there is an Eror somewhere. Most cameras have a botton you press to reset it. Usually it is the battery check button. Try that. Also try taking the lens off the camera, unlocking the aperture ring, remount the lens and then lock the aprture ring to the minimum F stop. I think this should solve the problem.
