if other auto-focus lenses work, then it is likely that this particular lens has a defect I suggest you send it in to Nikon for servicing

Clean inside lens fungus

If you realy have fungus in your zoom lens, you can't do anything. If it does not show on the pictures, just keep the lens dry. (use silica gel) If you want it it be repaired, it will cost more than an new lens.

Clean inside lens fungus

Whatever you do, do not open the lens. You will never be able to reassemble it. If the fungus is adversely affecting your images, you need to take it to a qualified camera repair man or send it to a Nikon repair depot found on the Nikon website. If it is not affecting your pictures, I would just live with it.

Nikon 55-200 is locked on 55 and won't extend to

Assuming that you've already tried a good firm hand on the zoom ring then all you can realistically try is to give the lens a few good firm slaps onto a desk to try and free up whatever has gone wrong. Brute force usually sorts them out, but it is "kill or cure". This lens lacks a macro mode, so this is not the usual simple case of adjusting a lens control and then slapping your forehead with embarrassment...

The lens is otherwise uneconomic to repair as it's one of the cheaply built kit lenses and so you can easily obtain another for less than the cost of repairs.

My nikon 55-200 zoom lens is stuck at full zoom

Don't force it.
Did you get dust or dirt in it?
The only solution is to bring it in for service or send it to Nikon if it is a USA model.
Nikon USA will NOT repair any gray market items.

My lens is also doing that same thing... and I just posted pretty much the exact thing you said...Mine squeaks and goes in and out really fast.. I do know that you can put the camera on manual mode and focus manually on mine, but would like to have the auto focus sometimes too. If I dont get an answer soon, I may send it in... I believe its a motor problem in the lens....

Is is worth fixing?

infopgdesign,
That's a close call, depending on how bad the housing is broken, there may be lens alignment issues, the adapter ring or the housing body may be cracked, take it in to a shop so they can look it over closely to help you decide if you should send it to Nikon for repair which depending on the severity of the damage will determine the cost. if it's close to what you paid for the lens, save your money and buy a replacement, maybe the VR version of that lens if it wasn't.

How to achieve full zoom with a Nikon 55-200mmf/4-5.6G ED lens?!

1) What camera body are you using?

2) I do not understand your assertion that it automatically zoomed in. Zooming is a manual function. The automatic functions of your lens pertain only to focusing on of the subject so that your picture is sharp and ensuring that the correct amount of light is admitted so that you have a correct exposure.

3) Are you sure you were turning the zoom ring and not the f-stop ring? The zoom ring is labeled 200 on one end of the scale and 55 on the other. It is also the widest ring on the lens barrel. When you rotate it, the physical length of the lens will lengthen as you rotate it clockwise (viewed from behind the camera) and shorten as you rotate it counter-clockwise.

4) For reference, at 200mm the angle of view on your lens should be 10 degrees and at 55mm about 40 degrees.

My Nikon Coolpix S220 will not turn on. What can be the problem?

It may be that the battery is worn out. It shows a charge in volts, but not enough milliamps to work the camera. Do you have spares?

Nikon B500 camera. I put a new memory card in my Nikon B500 and the camera says 'card not present'.

Is it this type of card? The B500 is compatible with SDHC and SDXC cards. That means you can use cards from 4GB all the way to the largest cards currently available. (at that time 128GB) And is it less than 128GB? Your Nikon Coolpix B500 Digital Camera is compatible with 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. https://www.google.com/search?q=nikon+coolpix+b500+compatible+memory+card ..

Nikon Coolpix p90 lens error 19

A "lens error 19" message on a Nikon Coolpix P90 camera typically indicates a problem with the lens mechanism and the camera is unable to extend the lens out of the camera body. This error code could be caused by a number of factors, such as:
  • A mechanical malfunction of the lens mechanism,
  • A problem with the lens gears or the drive motor that extends the lens,
  • Obstruction in the lens barrel that is preventing it from extending properly,
  • A malfunction in the camera's firmware.
There are a few troubleshooting steps that you can try before seeking professional repair:
  • Make sure the camera battery is fully charged.
  • Turn off the camera, then remove the battery and memory card. Wait a few minutes, then reinsert the battery and turn the camera back on.
  • Gently tapping the camera on a flat surface to dislodge any dirt or debris that might be blocking the lens.
  • Use a can of compressed air to blow any dust out of the lens barrel.
  • If the lens barrel seems to be twisted, you can try to gently rotate it back into place.
If none of these steps help, it's likely that the camera will need to be repaired by a professional. It's best to contact Nikon customer service or a local camera repair shop for a diagnosis and estimate for repair. Please note, opening the camera and tampering with the internal component can further damage the camera and will void any warranty it might have

Camera lens help required.

This issue is caused by fiedd of view angle and means that the lens is not compatible with the camera. You can set the F-stop higher and sometimes reduce that effect.
