Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

Stuck shutter D100 Nikon

I have a 5 year old D100. I had the shutter box replaced about 18 months ago by Nikon. I worked OK for a while. Now, the shutter locks up until I push the shutter release again. Then it clunks and the mirror comes back down. There is that dreaded error message and then a few clicks later, it clears up. Now, I took three pictures and the shutter locked up and all I get when I press the release is a whirring sound, like an auto-winder on a film camera. No shutter activation, just continuous "err" message and an "R06" where the frames remaining counter is. It seems totally locked up. I took off the lens, remounted it, cleaned the contacts, took out and replaced the battery, took out the CF card, replaced it, hit the camera a few times with my palm...nothing but that whirring sound on shutter release. Any ideas?

    I have the exact same issue with my 5 year old D100. Did you ever get the issue resolved?

    I have a Nikon D1, the same problem happened. I pressed the Preview button next to the lens, and the shutter came down, same problem after I tried another shot, now just whirring noise.

The R06 is the buffer indication, not part of the error. It would appear more work is required. Other components may have failed, or the shutter itself may be bad.

I'm afraid this one is not a DIY. Nikon is pricey on repairs, you may fair better checking the repair service search here on Fixya.

I have a Nikon D3000 SLR. My lens zoom should range from 18-55mm but for some reason it won't go past 24 (so is stuck from 18-24mm) I have tried everything to fix this, including changing settings and...


Whatever you do, don't force it. Unlike your camera, which has just a 1 year factory warranty, Nikon lenses are warranted to be free from defects for 5 years; and is likely still under warranty.

Contact Nikon Service to have the lens properly serviced / repaired. Having it looked at by an unauthorized repairer or even "messing with it" yourself could void the warranty.

I hope this helps! Please rate my reply - thanks!

are you shooting in raw format? and in hi resolution or low resolution ? If you are shooting in RAW then the buffer of the d100 is full and it needs to empty its buffer before you can shoot anymore pictures

Left hand buttons don't work. They act like a half-pressed shutter button. IE: they focus and usually pop the flash. The camera takes pics fine, the two button reset and the tiny pinhole reset on the side...


You did what I would suggest to do the resets. I realize this is an old question, 1 year ago, but, if you have not found a solution my suggestion is to contact Nikon. The D80 is a fine camera.

Nikon D100: Lazy mirror return.


The reason the mirror is acting up is because the Shutter is going bad under slow shutter speeds. > The motor which drives the shutter charge and the mirror up and down is the same .

Stuck shutter release button on my D100


Ouch...

The damage may require parts, but maybe not. If I were doing the work, I would charge in the $50-$60 range , plus parts if needed.

Nikon will likely quote you much higher $200+

Nikon D100 randomly has "err" code flashing


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

Vivitar 636 and Nikon D200


You won't be able to use older TTL flashguns with the D200. Since the D70, all nikon cameras have used "iTTL", and earlier DSLRs (eg D100) have used "D-TTL". Neither of these are compatible with the older TTL system used on film cameras. The newer SB-400/600/800 flashguns are all ok, and Sigma and Metz both produce iTTL compatible flashguns. The new flashguns will work on old cameras but not vice versa.

I know this is annoying, but there were good technical reasons why Nikon changed the TTL standards.

If the 636 has an A mode (non TTL) this should work ok, otherwise it will only work in manual (if it has a manual mode).
