Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
Hiya, I have the Nikon D50 with the default 18-55 mm lens. Recently, sometimes when I turn it on, the lens won't respond. So even though the body is on (I can review old pictures, etc), the lens won't work (it doesnt autofocus and it won't let me change the ap or shutter speed). Also, the LCD screen at the top of the camera says "OFF" After a while, the lens starts to respond again. Sometimes when I turn the camera off and then back on, it always works (but not often, so i'm not sure if turning it off and then on again is actually a solution, or if it's a time thing) I think it might be a problem with the lens? But I'm not sure. Perhaps the lens to body connection isn't working? I'm waiting to get a second lens to check this hypotheses. Any help would be really great. I'm missing really great opportunities to take great shots!
I have a D50 as well but never experienced this problem. One thing to check as you already mentioned are the metal connections between the lens and the camera body. Make sure they're clean and shiny. Another thing to try would be switching between AF and MF modes on the lens itself.
