my niece who lives in another state has the D5000, as do I. Her camera has stopped auto-focusing. I've tried troubleshooting over the phone but the focusing problem continues. Here are the settings and what we tried so far:
- made sure the lens' A/M switch is set to 'A'
- Focus mode is set to AF-A
- 18-55 VR. I had her switch lenses but still no auto-focus
- tried different Auto Focus area modes (single, dynamic, auto-area).
The battery is charged. She can see the focus points in the optical viewfinder light up in red.
Thanks in advance for your help
