20 Most Recent Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor Lens Questions & Answers


I doubt it is possible to repair. These lenses are mostly made out of plastic pieces. There is probably something broken and/or bent. Lenses are manufactured with extremely great care. When a lens element is only a millimetre or two out of alignment you probably will get faulty images (flare, unsharp, focus shift, etc).
Take it to a repair shop and have them examine the lens if that's free of charge. Without photo's it is hard for me to judge if its total loss or not.

If you are unable to maximize the zoom capabalities of your lens, the mechanical gears might have been jammed and or broken. Do not push it if it won't let you as you might break the lense. What you can do is to bring it to your local camera shop or service center to have it fixed.

Why? unless you hve the proper tools and knowledge, getting it back together and you might not get the axis right, etc. You have to dismantle the lens from the REAR.

Many manual focus lenses date to before the development of autofocus technology. Unlike every other Japanese camera manufacturers, Nikon has not changed their lens mount since the beginning. 50-year-old lenses fit and work fine on the newest camera bodies (except that there is no autofocusing, of course).

Also, for some uses you don't want to rely on autofocusing.

Unfortunately not. If you take apart the lens without the proper tools and in a sterile environment, you will ruin the lens. There should be nothing in there that affects the operation of the lens, if there is then you need to send it back to the manufacturer.

There is a reasonable common fault where screws internally come loose and cause the zoom to jam - you will need to get the lens serviced.

Try switching between MF and AF mode and seeing if you can free the lens. If not then your AF motor has probably locked up and will need professional attention to release/repair.

It's a bad lens. Return it for refund or replacement; do not make any attempt to fix it as it will invalidate the warranty.
