Try a 2 button re-set and then remove the battery and turn on again. You also may have reached the 1000 limit on the folder of images you have been shooting and would simply have to re-set that folder or open a second one. The older D-40's used a system early on but has been addressed since.

Error. press shutter release button again


most likely cause is failure of the motor in the SQ unit on the side of the mirror box. This ***** the shutter, raises the mirror, and operates the aperture unit. They're made in China, motors are **** This is a very very common problem, and the part is always on back order at Nikon. As Nikon has announced that they are going to stop selling parts - to anyone - in a couple of months you are probably better off sending it to them. Be prepared for a bill a little less than $200.

also if you pressed down really ******* the release to get it to fire, you may also have broken the release switch

I posted very closely related troubleshooting steps to take in order to prevent your CAM from performing badly. Check your CAM batteries to ensure they are using only approved NIKON batteries as anything else will cause you lots of errors and potential problems. When you using the timer or remote options, remember these are controlled by battery as well, radio frequency, and radio wave lengths. When you press the button to take a photo, inspect the button, press firmly for a second and release. If your button is not performing the way it should, inspect it to see if any wear and tear is visible to you. Check free deprey around the button such as DUST, HAIR BUILDUP, and small particals that are hardly visible to the human eye. With very low velocity pressure air, blow around the shoot button as build up will cause the same error your experiencing.

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
