The subject says it all: I'm a newb!

I bought my wife and daughter matching D3100 kits and one Nikkor AFS 55-300 telephoto lens. The lens will not auto-focus and activate the shutter.

The switch on the lens is on "A", the VR is on, the AFS on the camera is on and the area setting is auto-area. I was outside in plenty of light.

The camera will shoot in manual mode.

I feel like there's a simple explanation and have scoured this board and others - any advice?

Thanks from sunny Austin!
