Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera
That's odd that Shutterbug camera shop couldn't tell you everything you needed to know about that camera. I looked it up in a PDF manual because the new "small frame" cameras require different lenses as is the case here Autofocus with this camera is only supported by AF-S and AF-I lenses the lens is equipped with the autofocus motor other types of lenses will not autofocus.
The "kit" lens for this camera is the AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55 F3.5/5.6G VR.
Now if Shutterbug camera shop mounted an AF-S lens and the camera didn't autofocus then they are right in saying it's broke. I just find it strange they couldn't tell you that straight up. You need to install an AF-S lens and try it, again they may have put the wrong type on it and of course it won't work.
I take it that you don't have the camera manual?
If not go into Google search Type in Nikon D60 PDF manual and click search fifth one down on the first page is what you need click on it and download your "new" manual
Here is the link I used
See if that helps, personally I think you just need the correct lens.
