There may be something wrong with the camera. Make sure it is set to Single Exposure setting and not Multiples. There should be a control on the top left to change this. Look for an "S". this is what you want. If that doesnt help, you may need to get it repaired.

My shutter release button on my Nikon P500 is not working. I press it half way and it will focus, but, when I press it full down it will not capture the picture. It started happening suddenly last week....


Try pressing the "Menu" button and disable "Active-D Lighting", also try setting the "Autofocus mode" to "Single". When the camera is off, press the shutter release and twist with the zoom know back and forth. Hopefully that fixes it! It worked for my P500 with the same problem.

Nikon D40x has suddenly stopped working in Bulb-mode.


Did you accedentely rotate the mode dail? because as soon as your not in one of the manual modes, you are not able to decide what goes on. In auto (green camera logo) the camera does his own way.

Error in display


Press the shutter release again. Take out the battery and put it back in a while (1-2 min). Reset the camera with the reset button.

If this doesn't work, take it to the Nikon repair.

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"


You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

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.

Good day, I have a Nikon D1X. The shutter button when slightly depressed should engage the AF in the lens. The lens is a Tamron. The camera Auto Focuses fine when you press either of the two AF buttons on...


You are correct, there is a setting. Press Monitor, then Menu to get to the menu; go to the thitd menu option (looks like a pencil), select option 4 (AF Activation) and set it to ON (Shutter/AF ON). This will solve your problem.

Faulty nikon d40


I had the same error message, the camera is less then a year old, however, I was taking up to 800 pictires every weekend of my kids soccer games, then a 6 month trip to the Pursian Gulf, that is when it started, I got back home, took it right in, and one year later after a few visits and calls trying to find out where my camera was, I finally got an answer back, they said I needed a new shutter which will cost $300, They said I should just by a new body for $400. What Nikon does is set that error message to pop up at about 35000 shutter releases, and you can't do a thing about it, once they hooked my camera up to thier system the said I had over 36000 shutter releases, where the average person takes 10000 a year and they want you to replace the body every 3 years....so before buying any camera, always check out how many shutter releases you can get when you buy a camera
