Camera Help
« on: August 29, 2017, 08:30:23 AM »
I'm wondering if someone here could point me in the right direction.  I have a Nikon D3000 that has lost it's ability to auto focus very well.  My manual attempts suck and I assume it needs cleaned or serviced in some way.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Take it to a reputable camera shop.
If they can't get it figured and fixed them they can ship it off to Nikon to have them get it working.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Bob,

You rock!  Thanks for that....I'm on it now.  I was just looking for a place in tri-cities and wasn't having luck.

I'm not familiar with the D3000, but I suspect it has multiple focus sensors and they can be selected. If somehow you selected one not in the center where you're looking that could be one possibility.  Also, if you have more than one lens try a different lens to eliminate the lens being the issue.

Good luck!  Camera issues are very frustrating.
