My D200 has focusing issues once in a while:

I'm in Single Focus Mode (S) and focus on a subject. beep beep, i hear. THen i decide to focus elsewhere, but the camera's focus light in the viewfinder stays lit and i cannot refocus (focusing is basically locked). Then I either keep trying until the camera decides to start focusing again, or simply turn the camera on/off to reset focusing capability.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Is there some setting that i don't know about? What's the deal?

Help!

You sure you don't have the focus lock set to "+release" in the menu? I did that on my d70s and it would have driven me nuts if I hadn't read it in my manual.
You can do the same with exposure. It's easier for sure than pushing the little button and holding it down too.

The thing is, that this happens once in a while. so it can't be a menu thing.

After I rinsed my D200 in the sink to get the ice cream off one time (yes I've done it several times, no it usually isn't a problem) I realized afterwards that I had left the battery compartment open and water had gotten inside. I let it dry a few hours but there was still moisture, and after letting it dry for about 24 hours it seemed perfectly fine. Once in a while for the next month however I experienced your very problem (except I have beeps turned off). Nowadays it has stopped though.

I can't help you with this. My D70 focuses ok. However, if you ever need help after you scratch your sensor, let me know. I have experience there...

just to try
can you set the D200 to AF only via the AF button
see if that works
(i actually prefer this over the shutter button)

Is this happening with all lenses? I've experienced this a few times myself, in low-light (indoors) situations with the nikon 105mm f2.8 macro, but never with other lenses as I can remember. This lens also has trouble focusing sometimes on flat surfaces, mostly in low light situations.

Exuse my grammar/spelling, but english is not my native language and I have just had too many beers with my friends tonight :P

Anyways, I hope this might lead you closer to a conclusion :)

cheers,
jabo
