How can I fix the autofocus on my Quantaray 7-300 lens.


Sorry to say but the lens needs to be sent in for repair. To repair or replace the AF motor is usually around the $200.00 range. Do not try to fix it yourself.

Aperture ring won't turn


When the camera is set to autofocus, let the camera do the focusing. If you want to focus manually, turn off the autofocus so you can turn the focusing ring.

Machine stopped sewing, needle shuddered and quivered, display screen said to stop could be safety issues, looked at manual, said thread jam or needed new needle, i changed needle there were no jams,

& tell them how much you don't appricate it's still doing the same thing.
I've heard of this happening before.

Lens makes a whirring noise but will not autofocus,works fine in manual


The most likely cause for this is stripped gears within the lens.This will require complete disassembly to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

This AC makes a severe Churning noise when the compressor runs. It now makes a strange noise when your start the unit and then 'hums'. It seems to have problems with the compressor 'kicking...


lots of compressors make strange noises and run for years. I hate to suggest installing a hard start kit simply because I always wonder what we did before they came out with a hard start and machines lasted longer BUT, check amps on start up, amps while running, watch amps for a bit while it's running, install hard start kit. just like all mechanical equipment, it may last 5 weeks, it may last 5 years. Best Wishes!!

This lens makes a whirring noise when attached to the camera body. It will not focus in either manual or automatic. The camera works well with the other lens.


Sounds like the focus mechanism is broken on that lens. There's a small screw on the back of it where it meets the camera body, the motor in the camera body turns that screw to autofocus. To me it sounds like the screw is turning, but the lens isn't focusing. You said it also doesn't focus in manual mode, so there is probably something inside the lens that needs repair or replacement. Your best option is to take it to a camera repair shop and ask them for an estimate, camera lenses are not the kind of thing you can take apart and fix on your own. Hope that helps.

My m1033 camera will not focus and the lens is making a strange shaking noise....tried using air blower...does not help......


This will need to be repaired, The issue here is with the autofocus hence the lens is trying to autofocus but cannot, would never recommend a hair dryer. What needs to happend is bring this guy into a local camera shop to have it taken care of, hair dryer in this case will not work and could damage it further,

Coolpix camera is making buzzing noises when on


It's the autofocus trying to focus. Focus on something and press the shutter halfway down and nnow you can point wherever without autofocus trying to refocus

Won't Autofocus


Of course, lenses are very sensitive, and require clean rooms (dust-free) to fix them, and then tools to recalibrate them.

Some obvious points would be to make sure the lens setting is not (A)uto instead of (M)anual.

I'm sorry to say that after trying to blow air (carefully) in the cracks while turning the dials might assist, clean the contacts on the opening of the lens.

After these things have been done. You'll have to find a service center to have it repaired.
