This is a new to me D40. Came with about 11,000 actuations. I took about 400 pics over the weekend. When I depress the shutter half-way, nothing happens but I can feel the motor try to engage. This happens to both my 18-55 and 55-200 lens. Thoughts? Tim *FIXED*

Nikon D40. 18-55mm and 55-200mm VR. Am I supposed to know what that means!?!

Hey Tim, You didn't indicate how you got it fixed, but sometimes removing and reattaching the lens will resolve the issue as well. Also might want to clean the CPU contacts on the lens and camera body... J
