70-200 VR f/2.8: VR + AF stopped working! on D5100.
Aug 31, 2014


I'm using the 70-200 mm VR for a month and using the lens relatively much. It worked fine. Since yesterday the VR + AF stopped working. Nothing excited has happen, so I didn't hit anything and haven't changed the lens.

When I switch VR on, there is a little electric noise.
When I switch AF on, there is a little electric noise too!
The result: they don't work and it slows down the camera menu. When switching both off, the camera menu respond how it should. The noise sounds really soft and I have to put my ear on the lens to hear it.

When I switch AF on for example, the camera notice this and gives me options at the menu, so it's not completely dead.

Does anyone knows how to fix such a error?
