Usually when my shutter won't operate, I get an ERR message. I have been able to fix it by turning the camera off and back on. If that doesn't work, I have occasionally had to remove and reinstall the battery.

The D-90 users manual says that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and can be cleared by releasing the shutter. But, I found the shutter won't release unless you turn the camera off.

The manual also says if this condition occurs frequently or persists, you should contact an Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest before you do that, that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they might suggest.

Shutter advance on Nikon F6: with the back open, should the shutter curtains operate when activating the shutter?


Does the shutter operate when the back is closed? (In other words, does it expose the film?) If so, don't worry about it. If not, it may need service -- or it may be set at such a high shutter speed (1/2000, for instance) that makes the shutter open and close so quickly that you can't see it move.

Shutter release inoperative


The "button" is actually just a plastic extension for the actual switch on the printed circuit board. You will have to dismantle the camera to gain access to the board and then use a DMM to test the switch contacts.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

My 645 1000s shutter buttons wont pop back up.this is my 1st mamiya


You might want to check and make sure the battery is still good. If you purchased the camera used and didn't change the battery then this might be the case.

But in the mean time this is what you need to do:
1st-make sure that the shutter speed dial is set to any shutter speed other than the red circle w/red ring. If your camera is set to that it will drain your battery when not in use since it is designed to be an automatic setting. I set mine to 1/125th to do this push in the circular dial on the side and at the same time turn the knob.

2nd- locate the 2 levers on the opposite side of the shutter speed dial. Once you found them then position the back lever all the way forward towards the setting for "MULTI" and position the lever towards the front straight up.

3rd- then wind the film crank till it won't wind anymore and depress the shutter, if it is wound and the shutter release is still stuck then skip to the fourth step, if something happened and you heard a click then still proceed to the next step because no the shutter release will be temporarily stuck.

4th-Once both of these levers are in this position there should be a red button just behind the shutter release button on the top right side of the camera.... drum roll please...."Push the red button" what you should hear is a rather loud click, this click is the mirror releasing allowing you to: 1 wind the film crank and take another picture and 2 this also now allows you to see through the lens again (assuming that you have a lens on the camera).

In Conclusion: without a battery that is fully functional in the camera this is how the camera will operate once you get a battery for your camera then reposition the levers on the side of the camera opposite of what I suggested (this will be the normal operating mode for the camera with a battery) then when you wind the film crank and depress the shutter everything will function normally.

Shutter does not operate.


hiwhen you say shutter does not operate, it mean too general to answer. could you provide more detail?I will give how does shutter work. First, you press shutter button, it will activate two switchs (one is focus and meter and the other is release ) Second, mirror goes up and opening shutter curtain move up. Third, closing shutter curtain down and mirror down and picture come out. Of course there is also aperture control unit sequence.
