I'm getting a r16 error on my D90
The "r16" in the display is not an error code. It is simply informing you of the number of exposures that can be held in the camera's internal high speed memory before shooting would have to stop while the D90 transfers the pictures to the memory card. If you held the shutter release, you could watch the r16 value decilne by one for each exposure (r15, r14, r13, etc.).
Page 256 of the D90 User's manual indeed shows the Err error
code, and defines it as a "Camera Malfunction", "Release shutter. If
error persists or appears frequently, consult Nikon-authorized service
representative." The "err" error code is a generic error. The
camera has detected a problem, but it doesn't know exacly what, similiar to the fEE code. The "err"
code could be camera / lens contacts or it could be a
circuit board or even shutter failure. You've already tried the common contact cleaning fix (that never seems to solve the problem) without any luck, so you might have to call Nikon Support and arrange for service.
