I have the same problem

The weaker the battery, the longer it takes the flash to charge. After taking a flash picture, you're supposed to wait until the flash has recharged before pushing the shutter button again.

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.

Shutter is lagging with sb-800 flash attached. flash goes off, 3 sec later shutter goes

Have you checked the flash mode?
I have no problems with the combination D300 SB-800.
I assume you don't have a picture if the flash goes off before the shutter open(?)
If you do check the menu e2 Flash shutter speed you can set it at a few seconds in spite of the fact that the flash sync (e1) is something reasonable like 1/250
The flash shutter speed is set to 1/60 in my camera...

LCD screen is black-cannot take photos

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

D50 not taking pictures

Not experienced on this but if not taking pictures it could be the `mirror ` is not moving have you tried taking off the lense again and re fitting, you may not have fitted properly.
My own opinion is that pushing the shutter shouldnt cause a problem. Do the white dots line up?
Wish I could be of more help.

Please help...I can't take any pictures!

Possibility one : lens unit faulty and proper focus is not being achieved camera goes into error mode because of this and then it switches off to prevent further damage.( replace /repair lens unit ) Possibility two: shutter faulty . Lens delivers proper focus but when you try to take picture goes into error mode because shutter not coming on line or malfanctions. ( replace shutter only ).

Picture quality has become terrible

Ed, The shutter on your camera has become stuck open. This causes the lines across your pictures. If you take the camera outside or shoot in bright lighting conditions the pictures will come out over exposed. The fix for this problem requires complete disassembly of the camera to access the shutter assembly inside the lens. It is a fairly common issue due to the fact that the shutter is such a delicate component. Check with your manufacturer for warranty support or recalls. If they are unable to help you for free, there are repair providers which you can find online who will repair your camera for a reasonable rate. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

No pictures recorded/black screen

it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.

Blurry pictures

You're both right. The pictures are blurry because the shutter speed is too slow, but it's too slow because there isn't enough light for it to be faster. Try this: Set the ISO to 800 Set the camera at shutter priority mode, and enter 1/160 for wide angle to mid-zoom, and 1/400 for full zoom. If the pictures come out too dark ( and you're too far to use the flash ), you can always brighten them on the computer. But if they're blurry, you can't really fix that.
