I have a Nikon D3100 with the Nikkor 18-55mm lens. Whenever I attach the lens and turn the camera on, its simply saying "lens not attached". The only time it will take a picture is in manual mode and its a self timed picture. How can I make my camera work?

Try cleaning the contacts and reattaching the lens. If that doesn't work, try a different lens to determine if the lens or the body is the cause of the problem. Send whichever part is broken to Nikon for repair.

You will get this message if the lens barrel is locked; push the lock/unlock button on the lens. Then extend the lens a bit, and that might take care of the problem---at least it did for me!
