Hi. My name is*****’m a camera repair technician with over 20 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today, but I'm going to need a little more information first.

Can you clarify what you mean by "Assign" the focus ring?

It is Nikon jargon for activate. I want in manual setting to rotate the focussing ring to suit me. At the moment have two red indicators on the ring and these appear to be f5.6. an can not be changed

Hi,

Set your mode dial to A (aperture priority). This will allow you to change the lens opening (F4, F5.6 ...etc.) using the Command dial on the camera. Then place the A / M switch on the front of the camera in the M position. This will allow you to turn the Focus ring.

Please keep in mind that my diagnosis & solutions provided are directly dependent on the accuracy of your description of the problem. As with any "do it yourself" fixes, success is a "team effort", since I can't see or touch the camera, and relies on the customer's manual dexterity and ability to follow the instructions well.
