With no lens (or a non-CPU lens) the camera must be in Manual (M) mode or the shutter locks.

WHEN TAKING READY FOR SNAP A L IN RED COLOUR IGNITED IN THE MONITOR CONTINUOUSLY


When you are depressing the shutter release button from top to bottem in one go, the camera does not get enough time to focus. When the picture is not in focus a red light will shown on the screen or in the view finder. Try to press the shutter release button half way down, till the red light goes out and only then press the button fully.

Has the shutter broke? I have had and used this


remove bottom cover and check for one or more loose or missing ground screws on the bottom board (under the tripod mount plate). If it is missing, you can usually find it sticking to one of the motors

My nikon d3100 is saying error press shutter release button again and it dont do nything.. it also has a dark blurry film when i look through the lense ?


Hey Julie,

We'll solve your problem in a moment.

Step 1,


First, I need you to look through the viewfinder, and press the shutter release button, half-way, and notice the difference. Don't let go, till you hear a beep sound. The blurriness that you see will clear automatically.

If you hear no noise, and the blurriness doesn't go, try this.


Step 2,

On the lens, there will be a tiny button. It'll have A-M on it. Switch it to 'A', if not already on it.

Once you do that, try step one again. Now, you'll be able to overcome your problem.

Toodles,

Rebel!

=)

I dropped my camera and since then I can take photos, the camera focuses, my display is fine when viewing previously shot images and the normal display information but when the shutter is pressed all o see...


When you take off the lens and fire off a shot, does the mirror go up and return or does it stay up? If not, is it possible that it is staying up when the lens is connected? When you fire a shot, can you hear it returning?

Nikon D200 has become nearly impossible to grab images


False low-battery warnings, focusing, and metering problems may be the result of poor contact between the body and certain lenses. Try removing your lens and thoroughly cleaning the contacts. I would recommend using a contact cleaner, but rubbing alcohol will also work. Remember that the whole ring needs to be cleaned. If that does not work, try scraping the battery contacts.

Shutter button does not respond to push. If D-90 camera is turned on, what is the most likely error I am making? Allan Fork afork1@aol.com


There are several possibilities.

Do you have a memory card installed? By default the camera locks the shutter release if no memory card is installed. Install a memory card if you have one, or change Custom Setting F6 to "Enable release" and see if you can take a picture.

What release mode are you in? If the camera is set to one of the remote release modes, it's waiting for an infrared signal from the ML-L3 remote release. Turn the camera off and on again, then try to take a picture.

What focus mode are you in? In AF-S, the shutter will not release until focus is acquired. Try turning off the autofocus (there's a switch just below the lens release button) and see if you can take a (probably blurry, but who cares?) picture.

Does the battery have sufficient juice? Press the menu button, navigate to the Setup Menu, then select Battery Info. If it's below 10%, I'd charge the battery. Of course, if the menu doesn't come up on the screen, that would tell me that the battery probably needs to be charged.

Is there a lens attached? What type? Certain older lenses and others lack the electronics to fully support newer digital cameras. With such lenses, you have to switch to Manual mode. Turn the mode dial to M and see if you can take a (probably an improperly exposed, but again, who cares?) picture.

Are you getting any error messages? If so, or if none of the above apply, then the camera may need service.

Nikon 18-55mm AF-S/ VR lense shudder?


I believe you're hearing the VR in the lens adjusting. Try turning the VR off and see if you hear the sound. If not, then you have a normal operating lens.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.
