I have a similar problem with my Nikon D70. The local Wolf(Ritz) where I bought it is NOT a repair facility. I took the camera to the only place in Colorado on 07/18/2009. The next day they called and said that it would be about $300.00 for the repair of the Shutter Assembly. About a month later I got a letter (I had called a couple of times to check on the progress, they were waiting for parts, the tech was ill, etc) stating that the tech had taken it as far as he could and they would have to sent it to Nikon for repair. I called them on 07/10/2009 and they contacted Nikon, who statred it would be another 7 to 10 working days. I called again on 07/24 and was told that they would contact Nikon. Apparently ikon will never return their calls. I 'm getting pretty frustrated.. Any similar problems from Nikon factory service.

Possible failure of the display unit of the camera is the picture taken is sowing good image after downloading on the PC.
If so the panel must be taken out and checked for voltage on the pad, the flexible strip that connects the display also can be faulty.
You will need to have some experience to open and probe into the display unit.
If you've tried removing and reattaching the lens, removing and reinstalling the memory card, and anything else you can think of then it's probably locked up just like mine did a month or two ago. Googling the problem turned up a few with the same troubles but no solutions other than to take it to a service agent for repair. Sorry, can't tell you exactly what was replaced as I don't have the paperwork with me but I do recall it was a $12 part that cost $260 in labour to fit!!
I have a Nikon D70 which failed completely but exhibited similar symptoms.
I was fortunate in that I had taken out 3 years free warranty at the point of purchase and therefore saved the £90 (sterling) repair cost.
Nikon cameras are designed to be robust and should give a lifetime's service. Most should give 150,000 shutter actuations.
There is a piece of free software available on the Web that will tell you how many actuations were recorded on your recent photos.
Unfortunately, in the fast moving world of digital cameras, the value of a 2nd user older camera is very low.
You need to decide if you were outgrowing this camera body and want to replace it with something better or whether you would be lost without it. My repair took more than 1 month and I was not able to take any photos during his time.
I hope this helps.
I'm looking for the source of this same problem. I was able to get my d70 unstuck by: 1. Set to full manual mode. 2. In the menus set mirror lock up to yes and then press shutter release. 3. Turn camera off and then back on
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
