    what do you mean by "not taking picture in A mode" ? Is it not able to focus or camera is focusing but not clicking pictures ? Provide more information. In "M mode" see if the auto focus is set to manual. My guess it was set to manual focus after focusing at 18mm that's why u get clear pictures at 18mm and not at 55mm. – Rafal Mar 31 '17 at 6:40

    It sounds like autofocus is disabled either on the lens or body (or both) and the setting to wait for focus before taking the picture is enabled. – AthomSfere Mar 31 '17 at 12:09
  • What happens when you set to Av (aperture priority) or Tv (shutter priority) modes? Have you tried a different lens? What focus settings have you set? – electrophile Apr 2 '17 at 16:11
