If you've tried removing and reattaching the lens, removing and reinstalling the memory card, and anything else you can think of then it's probably locked up just like mine did a month or two ago. Googling the problem turned up a few with the same troubles but no solutions other than to take it to a service agent for repair. Sorry, can't tell you exactly what was replaced as I don't have the paperwork with me but I do recall it was a $12 part that cost $260 in labour to fit!!
Most digital equipment has some kind of manual reset. Refer to your camera manual to see if there is a sequence of buttons that will reset to the factory settings.
I had a similar problem with my Nikon D200.
I resolved it by setting the camera to manual mode (any aperture and any shutter speed) and firing the shutter release. Manual deactivates almost all other functions and may clear the error.
Try another battery, memory card, lens to eliminate all possibilities.
Have you looked to see if the mirror is locked up revealing the sensor at the back of the camera body?

I had the same problem with my D70.
Ended up having the shutter repaired at the tune of $135.
Works fine now.

Hope this helps
Sounds like the shutter is sticking. This could be due to damage or just need cleaning. This probably means that you need to get the camera professionally serviced/fixed as shutters are extremely delicate.
Today I was taking photos and the camera quit...the top display says err. The book says release shutter, but I push the shutter and it does nothing but make a little click and the err stays. I took the lens off, and the camera does look like the shutter is open or something.
According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
