    Default HELP! Auto Focus not working

    Just bought my Nikon D80 2 weeks ago with kit lens. Got a problem with Auto focus...even though i set it to "A" on lens, and "AF" at camera. When i try to shoot pic in any mode...the autofocusing is not working...anyone can help? thanks in advance!

    ...did you put details at the af points?

    if your af point selected is pointing at a smooth white surface, even the most expensive camera and best lens will not find anything to focus on

    I tried to reset at custom setting, tried take out lens and tried focus at different areas with different zoom & different modes...all failed! I can only manually adjust it for it to work. it was still working 2 days ago...wonder what cause it to fail suddenly.

    Try unmount and mount your lens again and make sure you hear the click sound. If you don't hear the click, most likely it won't autofocus.

    Just a stupid question. Did you check if the lens is set to AF or MF? Perhaps it was accidentally set to MF?

    there is another switch for selecting AF-S, AF-C, and M mode on the body itself..make sure its set to AF-S, this will ensure u get focus lock and confirmation beep..if u r on AF-C u should still be able to focus, but no focus confirmation beep..if u r on M, then u can oni manual focus, even if ur lens is set to A or M/A..

    On the D80, it is a hard switch by the side of the lens that switches AF/MF. The TS has already checked this.

    The other selector via button is switching between AF-S, AF-C and AF-A. That should not affect the AF.

    I suspect the SWM of the kit lens is giving problem.
