Question about Cameras
I had the same problem. After looking up information on google, I found a very good solution. But be aware, it requires you to open the body. So, you'll need a set of very small screwdrivers, make sure you take one that fits perfectly to the screws. Open up the bottom part, you should see a small red gear (responsible for lifting the mirror). Turn it manually a bit, then insert battery and check if your camera works then. If it does, you're lucky. If it doesn't, you'll have to take off the metal part, to which you screw on tripod, as there is another white gear (responsible for lifting the sensor protector) under it. But to take the metal part off, you will have to take off both front and back sides of the body, to get to the screws. At all times remember where each of the screws go, as they have different sizes. when you get to the point where you have removed the metal part, you should get small tweezers, or anything small enough to fir under those wires next to the red gear, as that is where your white gear is at. Move it couple stops back and forth, and then insert the battery, try to press the shutter button 2-3 times, and it should be working. At least it did the job for my D3000. If your camera works, but everything back in the correct order and screws in their correct places, and that's it. You just fixed your camera.

I have the same problem with my D3000, as far as I've seen though, it only happenes when I try to take pictures sideways! my guess is there is some dust or other type of dirt in the camera, which stops the shutter when you try to take the picture!

Got the same problem with my Nikon D3000 today while shooting in broad daylight and with high suttee speeds. The problem however went away after the shutter release was pressed a couple of times. Continued to shoot at ISO800 just to see if the problem popped up again, but it did not.
