New to forum, but have been reading for a while. Not sure if lens problem or camera. Using a D40X and D80 with two DX AF-S zoom lens. On occasion, get error statement "lens not attached". Some time happens on power up and sometimes while doin manual focus. Lens correctly mounted to body. Remounting lens seems to fix problem. Anyone seem something like this?

It shouldn't be a problem. Pherhaps the lens moved a little bit and it disconnected with the contacts on the inside of the lens mount.
I've never had this before, but a lot of others have. Just turning the lens a bit to the right should fix it.
Ow and check if there is any dirt on the contacts, and clean it.

Thanks for the feed back. I have found that by adjusting lens while mounted, error message goes away and camera works fine. Nikon suggested I send everything back to be checked. Instead, will stop by one of their authorized repair centers and have everything checked out.

We had the same problem. The fix is to free up the contact that sits apart from the ones on the mount collar.
