Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Lens won't turn/ something's dangling

I've had my Nikon for well over five months now. This is the first problem I have had. I was taking pictures with my camera, and I decided to put the lens on Manual. When I did, I heard a different click than I usually do. As soon as I turn my camera around to look at it, I heard a rattling inside. Something had gotten loose inside. I took the lens off to look at it, and that's exactly what had happened. I just don't see how. I am very protective over my camera, and it is in great condition. I can't see how changing it from auto to manual could do something like that. The piece inside the lens that is practically floating around is cube shaped and black. I'm not sure exactly how it's suppose to be connected inside or if it's just broken off. There are no other pieces that seem to be out of place. If anyone could help, that would be great! I have a 1 year warranty still, but if I can fix it myself, I will.

Do not try to fix it. Return under warranty- this should not have happened.

Contact Nikon tech support at to see what they recommend. I don't think the warranty covers abuse such as dropping the camera so you may be in for an expensive repair. However, he Nikon techs may be able to suggest something that might help you avoid that expense.

If you have the lens set to the lowest number, you should be seeing a FEE error on the display. The lens needs to be set to the highest number, typically 16 or 22.

Make sure your F stop number is not set to a high number.
like 22 unless you change the f stop in the camera. what im telling you to make sure of is that the aperture of the lens is not set to its smallest opening. because that would make the eye piece look dark inside. to fix you would just turn the ring with the numbers going from 3.8 - 22 or something close to a lower number like the 3.8.
let me know if that fixes it,
