    Unhappy D3000: Lens not attached error

    I need help!

    I have a D3000 that says "Lens not attached" as soon as you turn it on. No, I am not using any crazy weird lenses -- this is just the lens that comes with it and I have never tried ANY other lens or attachment at ANY time... :/ It just started doing this out of the blue after a 3 years of ownership!

    I bought it brand new and my warranty has of course expired. I am a beginner photographer and know nothing about camera repair but I have scoured the web and tried all kind of things, including the following:

    -Cleaned the main lens contacts
    -Clean and manipulate/depress other lens contacts like this one
    -Reset shooting options
    -Reset setup options
    -Reset the camera using the reset button next to the V-OUT/USB ports
    -Wiggle the lens

    All this to no avail.

    Anyone have any more ideas?

    Thanks!

    James

    I would go to a camera shop and try a different lens, if it still shows the error you may need to send it in to Nikon.

    Thanks! I will try to do this tomorrow.

    I forgot to mention that if I turn the dial to "M" mode the error goes away. However, if I take a photo in this mode it only shows as completely black.

    I tried another lens and it still showed the same error.

    Better pay for an estimate before they repair it. A newer better model might be less expensive than the repair.

    Hmmm. What would be the comparable newer model?

    Merry Christmas!
