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.

Not focusing or shooting on anything after 5 feet


clean the contacts between camera body and lens, if it worked before. If it has never worked, then try a different lens, to determine if lens or camera.

D50 autofocus


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

Nikon d50 continuos shooting


Should an answer be given ??? TRY ANOTHER APPROVED MEMORY CARD. If the problem clears it's the card. If it doesn't it's either the camera or you haven't set up the camera correctly. READ THE MANUAL.
