Question about Cameras
Hi, My 18-55mm lense (see info in subject line) will auto focus but will not shoot. It makes a squeeling noise when I push the button. It will shoot on manual but does not focus. Can you tell me what the problem is. I use this lense the most and really need it. Thank you.
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.

I had the same problem with my 18-55mm lens on my Nikon D40x. I wiped the lens bracket with a soft cloth and now it works.
