Question about Nikon D90 Body Only Digital Camera
I've used my camera about two weeks now and every now and then when I turn it on to take a photo, I press the shutter and it doesn't do anything. I receive two separate errors...depending on the cameras mood. It either says..."Err" which in the manual says "camera malfunction in which the solution suggests release shutter. That doesn't work and it doesn't turn off either...at the same time the "memory access card lamp" light is on. OR, I will turn it on and it will say "CHA" in which the manual says "error accessing memory card. It IS an approved card, I've tried TWO new ones now...both approved and the memory card is NOT locked on write protected. Resetting camera does nothing. Again, it won't turn off when this happens so I release the battery. That is the only way to kick it.
I've seen a couple of these now that describe similar problems with the D90. I haven't seen anything from Nikon, though. Common issues like that are normally fixed through firmware updates, but there are none out for the D90. Given that it's still under warrenty, you should take it to a local Nikon dealer and let them help you.
Manual and online (you probably know) are not too helpful on problems like this. They just tell you to put in a new or fresh charged battery.
You might try formatting the card in a PC and seeing if that clears up problems.
I've had a D70 for years and I had no problems like that at all, but I always format cards when I put them in camera, and I format on the PC every so often.
