    I suspect the M/A button is set to M on the lens making it manual focus.

    The other thing that can happen with Nikon film AF cameras is that the lens isn't quite seated correctly. Try taking the lens off and re-attaching it if the above doesn't work.

    the switch on the lens got bumped... or the A/M switch right below the lens on the camera body itself

    There's a certain knack to attaching Nikon lenses, I used to do that all the time when I was starting out. Now it's like I'm wringing a chicken's neck, but still without damaging it!

    Glad things have worked out for you :D
