Question about Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Zoom Lens for DX SLR Cameras
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

Is the switch on the side of the lens set to manual or auto? Sometimes it's the little things like this that we don't notice.

You might like to check if the A/M slider switch on the lens by the Nikon label is set to A.
It sometimes gets moved accidently.
Set to M the lens will not autofocus.

I've found the same thing with my D40x and the 18-55mm AF-S lens. I took a really close look at it and found that the mount on the lens is badly worn on all three of the bayonet tangs and one is cracked at the base. What happens in my case is that the lens has movement when mounted on the camera - just enough to stop the contacts from mating properly. Hence, no photos. Am taking it to Nikon to get it fixed. I suggest if this is your problem, that you take it to the repair man.

Depending on where you live, you can take it to an authorized Nikon repair place or just send it back to Nikon.
In the US, they are in Melville, NY and ElSagundo, Ca.
