Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D100 randomly has "err" code flashing

My D100 performs fine one minute and flashes 'err' the next. This happens on auto and on manual. The pictures look fine (unless on manual and need to change the exposure)but the only way to get it to stop flashing 'err' is to turn it off and turn it back on. I freelanced with this camera for three years and I think, or at least hope, it is not user error.

    How can it be the shutter or "shutter box". The exposures on the pictures are fine. It just flashes 'err' in the viewfinder so you can't see what the exposure setting is. I can take a pict. and it is fine, take the next pict. at the same exposure and the picture is the same as the previous one but I get the 'err' code in the display and in the viewfinder . If I turn the camera off and then on again it is ok for a number of picts and then starts doing it again.

You need a new shutter box.
It may be worth cleaning the contacts on both camera and lens.
Clean the contacts in the lens mount using a fiberglass "pencil" designed specifically for cleaning contacts. These are available at just about any photo supply store/firm.

send it to nikon. seem like a common problem

Err is usually a camera malfunctrion. Re,ove the batery,a aaaaaatuen camera switch off/on 2-3 times *as if battery still in), replace battery and try again. Read Owners manual or got to Nikonusa.com to download a manual (or to ask Nikon) and determine if your D100 has a hardware reset switch(my dc70 does) and utilize that. If tht does not solve the issue, then service by an authorized Nikon tech is advised.

Nikon D100 Manual shooting help


The mode dial (topside left) must be set to M. That's it for manual settings - the camera won't check anything, and certainly shouldn't require the flash. You need to choose your own shutter speed and aperture settings to get a good photo, but the camera will let you take a picture no matter how you have it set.

My D100 will not accept CF cards


You can always try the reset button. It is under the flap where the USB/Video out/ and power connector is. It is just above the power connector.

Nikon d-90 keeps reading out 'err'


The "ERR" error message is a sequence failure and most common problems are shutter, aperture control or sequence motor drive system. When the problem repeats frequently, it will increase until total camera failure. Cameras in need of epairs should be sent to a Nikon Authorized Service Center like Southern Photo in Miami. Lots of repair information on all types of cameras can be found at http://blog.sp-ts.com so check it out for more repair information.

D100 shooting problems


Can you report what the dial and menu settings are?

My best assessment would be that the dial setting is on something other than Auto, like Manual, and the Aperture and/or shutter speed are way off. Flip it to Auto and take another shot. Report back.
