If the shutter has 100K operations then the camera may be due for a replacement (not worth repairing).
Please make sure you have a fully changed battery in the camera. If the camera does not have a battery icon anywhere showing a low or dead battery then you have a camera that should be sent to a Nikon Authorized service center. They can clean and repair your camera. They will; QUOTE the repair before you pay. All you are out is shipping costs.
Sounds like your camera's shutter is stuck in the closed position. Some owners have reported success in freeing the shutter by firmly tapping the bottom of the camera against a hard surface, but this "fix" can cause even worse problems if your tap is too forceful. You can also try powering the camera on while you hold the shutter release button, but chances are that the camera will need professional repair. Suggest that you take it to a Samsung dealer (NOT the camera shop at a chain store) and also check the Samsung web site for repair procedures and prices. Be sure to get a firm price before you commit to anything, though. The price of a fix can approach the cost of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.
I see this frequently on the E900. Every time it has been a battery issue. If you're using rechargables (the E900 came with batteries and charger in the Canadian market......not sure about the rest of the planet), they may have just worn out over time. Replace with new NI-MH (nickel metal hydride) rechargeables. If you're using throw-away AA's, try Energizer Ultimate Lithiums. I've solved many, many E900 shutting off problems simply by changing the batteries to Energizer Lithiums.
You need to use you fingernail and pop off the entire button assembly. When you have done this you will be looking inside your camera.
Set the new button assembly into the slots. It will not want to go on by just pushing down. The plasitc assembly is very slick so put a small piece of scotch tape the yellow stuff. I put the tape around the plastic assembly. Make sure you are only putting tape on the chrome plastic assembly. The reason for the tape is to get a good hold of the plastic asembly.
Once you have the tape on the assembly/chrome piece you need to really push down and twist clockwise. You will hear a click and then another click. Make sure you hear two clicks. I had to push and twist pretty hard to make it lock into place.
