My nikon D50 is just over a year. It worked fine since its purchase and i've taken great care of it. Since couple of days I am seeing a problem with it. While using manual focus it works fine. However if i turn the AF on then it does not autofocus at all. Sometimes the config screen shows r09 when i press shutter halfway.
I have tried using 3 different lenses and one of them is brand new delivered just today (Nikon 50mm).

Contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com 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.
Okay well without repair the unit will not be fixed. the issue is autofocus sensor inside may have failed or is out of range. This can be taken care of at a camera shop. This cannot be fixed by a end user and over a email solution. A repair shop would be the recommended course of action.
Thanks and I hope this doesn ot effect how you rate.
hi.. This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly. It flashes them to help you. You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.
To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.
Once you have done this the display will be steady. If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again. Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.
I am having a similar problem with my D50's shutter. My problem seems to be related to the position of the camera. If I rotate the camera vertically to the left - it functions fine. Rotated to the right - it acts as is as if the shutter button is not working at all. Horizontally positioned - the shutter works about 85%of the time. Is your problem positionally influenced as well?
Same happened to mine ,Its almost as though the motor has dis-engaged.I SOLVED MINE BY FORCING THE FOCUS RING WITH AUTOFOCUS ENGAGED THIS SEEMS TO HAVE RE ENGAGED THE MOTOR .HOWEVER BE CAREFUL I HAD LITTLE TO LOSE MINE WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY WHEN I DID THIS.Its perfect since.
