Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens
My Nikon D70 is suddenly giving a message "Err" and the shutter sticks open until pressed twice when it will close. What to do.
Sounds like the shutter is sticking. This could be due to damage or just need cleaning. This probably means that you need to get the camera professionally serviced/fixed as shutters are extremely delicate.

I had the same problem with my camera. I was taking pics and apparently the battery died mid-picture. I was getting the Err and Clock. I looked inside and saw the mirror was stuck up. I simply pressed the shutter to take a picture and it reset and the error went away.

The "ERR" code usually refers to an aperture problem. For example, if a lens with an aperture ring (Sigma is a favourite) used for earlier cameras is used, the aperture has to be set to its smallest (usually f/22 or "A" for automatic).
As you are using an 18-200, I assume it's the Nikkor VR. Callinto a camera store and ask them to check with a different lens. It may be the VR lens is faulty.
