Nikon d100 locked

Hi the mirror of my d100 is locked up!.....It happened all of a sudden! tried to gently push it back down, turning off the camera, charging the battery...but everything was in vain. When I press the shutter button all I hear it the motor winding but nothing happens. Needless to say that on the LCD the message ERR is showing up!
Could any one help please?
Thanks
Geoffrey

Have you tried to reset the camera? I seen this a few times .. and the camera reset did the trick. I've never heard of the motor noise though.

Nikon d40x suddenly stopped working- won't turn on- was working fine and when I connected it to laptop to download, it turned on , then suddenly went blank.


Do you get the 'push shutter button again' or 'turn off and on again ' message? If so the motor in the SQ unit that charges the shutter and moves the mirror up and down has failed. A very very common problem. The part is on constant back order at Nikon, and good luck getting it anyway as Nikon is going to stop selling parts to anyone in just a few weeks.

Nikon D2X - How do you lower the mirror if it gets locked up by mistake ? Had an err message on the upper view screen, tried the repair from this site, by tapping the front leftside of camera front and...


Normally, you can manually lock-up the mirror for the purpose of cleaning the sensor. To do this, you need to connect the camera to the optional EH-6 AC adapter. If after removing the lens and inspecting the mirror, you cannot gently nudge it back down (do not touch it...use a cotton swab) then you'll need access to the EH-6. If you don't have one, possibly a camera store near you would have one and be willing to let you plug in your camera so you could try to access the mirror lock-up function in the set-up menu.

Try this...clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

D100 black image after photo is taken


Have you accidentally turned off "review"? You can also go to "reset" in the menu and try that.

The mirror on my D100 has suddenly become slow. It takes 2-3 secs to return. The exposures are good. What have I done please?


You will have to take it to a photograpic shop for fixing. Sounds like the moving parts are sticking. Had similar problem with old camera and all the rubber and lubricants turned sticky, causing slow movement.

Nikon D100: Lazy mirror return.


The reason the mirror is acting up is because the Shutter is going bad under slow shutter speeds. > The motor which drives the shutter charge and the mirror up and down is the same .

Nikon D100: suddenly all the pictures are black


Ellen,
When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
seconds.
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

Stuck shutter D100 Nikon


The R06 is the buffer indication, not part of the error. It would appear more work is required. Other components may have failed, or the shutter itself may be bad.

I'm afraid this one is not a DIY. Nikon is pricey on repairs, you may fair better checking the repair service search here on Fixya.

Error Code


No, it's not an error. What this display indicates, is the availability of the total number of photos you want to take. If the display says, "r06", then you are in JPEG Mode. If it says "r03", then you are either 1) in RAW Mode, or 2) have your Noise Reduction on (see FAQ #2). As you take a few photos in succession, you will notice the indicator drops by how many photos you took.
