My D70 is showing an "Error" Message when I pressed the shutter after focusing. If I press it all the way down it would fix itself and will be able to take the picture right after. However, it is happening very often (almost every other shot)...not sure if there is any quick fix.

Turn the camera on and look into the view finder while you try to press the shutter button. Check the information in the view finder to see whether you are getting an error message. If you see an error message in the view finder, remove the lens cap and proceed to take a photograph but, instead of pressing the shutter button this time, press the button near the top of the camera on the back which says "AF/AE. If the camera takes the photo it means you have somehow initiated the auto focus/auto exposure lock which the camera will not override when attempting to take a photo using the shutter button. When you use the AF/AE button, you override this system. To remedy this issue, when you get the error message try pressing the shutter button again. Also, remove the lens to see if the shutter inside has frozen in the "locked" position. If you find this to be the case you will need to contact Nikon Customer Support. The link for Nikon Support is below. The numbers are half-way down the page.
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.
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
if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons :
1) defective switch.
2) defective flex cable.
3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.
