It's a report saying that the camera is busy doing something. It can hapen when you have taken a photo and the camera is busy processing but I find it happens when in auto focus and the camera is having dificulty due to distance from subject or light. Try switching to manual focus, moving further away from the subject or casting more light on the subject.

On my D40 I get the following message Error. Press shutter release button again


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Error "Press shutter release button" is actually due to failure of the lens control system
To solve it
First try by just
Reset the camera by taking out the battery or by reset button, If error is still there then first remove the battery and replace card battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck. For this use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside.
After it check the
focusing option is auto or manual the auto focus must be 18-55 and lens must be properly fixed
If error still exist then you may need servicing of your camera, in this case best option is to contact authorized Nikon Camera's service provider. Your problem will be solved

I hope you have clear picture in your mind now.
If you have any more query regarding your problem do inform me.
Thank you for using FixYa

How do i clear the r09 on Nikon D80


Try resetting all features back to default to see if that will clear it up. Your manual will have these instructions.
otherwise you can check out this repair https://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/quote/cart.asp?iProbID=33&mo=96
error codes are quite common in most cameras and they all have different meaning. this is a great camera by the way.

Hi K akima...have followed your advice, but no luck. When I go to continuous mode, it only lets me shoot a single shot, the display briefly reads r 08 then returns to r 09 again. I`ve tried my other lenses...


nikon r09,r11, etc . it mean memory buffer of your camera. memory buffer is a temporary memory for your captured images before it store to memory card.
if r00 it mean, you can't take a picture, even 1 picture... that because the camera buffer memory is full.
the number of memory buffer will also drop if noise reduction on

Try removing the battery and reinstalling it. Also try reformatting the memory card.

R09 shows up when I try to take a picture. Cannot access preview screen. Camera seems frozen.


R09 or R07 etc. is not an error message. In Nikon lingo ERR is the one you need to worry about. The RXX refers to the approximate amount of shots left in the buffer in the camera. Not a ptoblem. You may be trying to take pictures faster than your memory card / camera buffer can handle.

You can try a fster card like 266, but you may find that the camera is also your limitattion.

If you make no changes at all, the camera buffer will eventually clear and you can again takes pictures.

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.

Lens won't autofocus


Check that the electrical contacts on the lens and camera body are clean, and that the lens is mounted fully and correctly to the camera, i.e. no damage or dirt in the mounts. If these are all okay, it is looking like an internal problem with the lens's focus motor, or possibly something jammed in the lens.

If possible, try the lens on another camera body. Alternatively, you could switch the camera to a manual focus mode (or a mode that doesn't require focus confirmation) and see if you can take a picture.

This pretty much rules out what you can do for yourself I'm afraid. If you still have no luck, you will probably need to take it to a camera store for inspection / repair.

(Incidentally, the R09 is not actually an error message. It means that you have 9 shot capacity in the camera buffer before it will fill up. It sounds as if the camera is set to an auto-focus mode that requires focus confirmation before the shutter will fire which is why you're seeing the message.)

Nikon D40 Error Message


Get the kit changed. That should not happen right out of the box, but make double sure the next time around, you charge the battery completely before using it the first time. Not doing this can cause problems.
