Question about Nikon Cameras
Yesterday I bought an HDMI mini and connected the camera to the TV. After a while of testing the focus on it, the camera's live view went blank, and the Live View on the camera turned off and the camera started showing a blinking error message "err". I turned it off then on, still the error message blinking. I pressed the shutter button, the camera made the "Shutter Sound" as if I was shooting in a high speed mode (like the shutter in closing more than once). Everytime I press the shutter button the LCD shows the shutter speed and the aperture for a second, and goes back to the blinking error message. I kept spamming the shutter button, then tried to turn back the live view. it took photos for a while, then it went black again giving the error message. I turned off the camera, removed the battery for a minute, then put it back on, turned the camea on and looked through the viewfinder while pressing the shutter button. like every 2~3 times the view in the finder is black, then at the 3rd or 4th time I press the shutter it shows the view. I googled the issue, and found things on the internet, people suggested formatting the SD card with a FAT32, I did. I removed the battery. I tried to clean the len's pins and mount pins, but I was afraid and didn't know how it should be. Anyway, I noticed this when I had the lens removed, the mirror had different "angles" everytime I did that. I decided to use the "lock up mirror" option in the settings. It was grayed out, and so was the "clean image sensor". I kept pressing with the shutter button and the mirror lock option became available.. I set the option and removed the lens to look at the mirror.. there was no change, pressed the shutter release like it stated on the screen, and checked the mirror again, it became flat, but with a different bluish colour. The LCD was viewing blinking dashes (---- ---)I tried to click the shutter button to "release the state", nothing happened. so I turned it off, and on, and the error message came blinking again. It is still doing the same and showing the error message. Please help me on this issue, please tell me how to fix it... thank you.

SOURCE: will not take picture
Some digital SLR camera have a mirror lock and others have a viewfinder shutter In each case this will be a knob in the region of the viewfinder that turns. Check that this model has it and it has not be inadvertently turned. Then come back

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.

That's the Nikon error message for a lens with aperture ring set to something other than the minimum (i.e. highest number).
The camera insists on controlling the aperture ring, and to do so, the ring must be set to the minimum setting.
Unless it is a "G" lens, which has no aperture ring whatsoever.
The camera body sets the aperture of the lens wide open while auto-focusing, and displaying through the viewfinder. When it comes time to flip the mirror up and take a picture, the camera dials the aperture to the setting you (or the camera) have selected.
