This may be the shutter but it's more likely a common issue where the secondary mirror does not fully lift and leaves a shadow on the sensor.

Either way, whether it's the mirror or the shutter, you cannot repair these faults. Your camera should still be under Nikon's warranty, so you should send it to them for a free repair. Note that any unauthorised attempt to fix these issues invalidates the warranty.

Sorry there's no quick fix for you, but I hope that my reply has still been informative and useful. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

You must check the shutter speed before actually pressing shutter button completely if it is fast or slow.

How to use remote shutter release HRN280

First, you need an adapter to fit the HRN280 to the D90. You can order this adapter by emailing .

Using the adapter, connect the release to the jack in the side of the D90. After that, simply use the button on the release the same way you use the shutter release button on the camera. Press it halfway to focus and meter, press it all the way to take a picture. In addition, the remote has a slide lock so you can take continuous pictures or use the bulb setting.

I have a nikon d90,when i pressed shutter button ,it is giving err message then i press second time it is not giving err message but not taking the photo.

This is an indication that the camera is not "talking" to the lens correctly. When you press the shutter button, the camera tries to focus, set light levels, and then shoot the picture. If it can't focus or set F-stop and shutter speed, then it can't shoot the picture and gives you the error indication. SO
1. You need to make sure the lens is an automatic lens capable of working with the D90. 2. You can take the lens off and back onto the camera a few times in case its a dirty contact issue or just didn't seat correctly. 3. Set the D90 to manual and make sure you move the AF selector on the front to M. Then you would manually adjust all the settings. That should take the auto-coupling out of the picture (pun intended)
4. If it still shows error when in total manual mode, there may be something wrong in the camera itself. Before giving up, do a total system reset on the D90 (I assume you have the manual).

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"

You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

I have selected the continuous high and low speed modes option but my Nikon D90 still only takes 1 photo at a time. Any ideas?

There is a memory card loaded and you are holding down the shutter release, right?

Do you have the delayed release mode turned on? What's your shutter speed? What're your AF settings?

Nikon D90- no images in folder

Do you have a memory card in the camera? There is a setting in the camera that will allow the shutter to release if there is no card, however no picture is recorded.

I get an ''err'' error report on my D90, what do I do!!!!!???

The Nikon D-90 manual addresses this problem on Page 256.

It says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction and can be cleared by releasing the shutter.

I usually have to turn the camera off and back on to do this. Sometimes, I have to remove and reinstall the battery.

In an emergency situation, you may be able to continue taking pictures in the manual mode but you'll have to set the shutter speed and aperture yourself.

The manual also says that if the problem persists to contact a Nikon authorized service center. Before doing that I suggest you contact Nikon tech support at and see what they have to say about the problem.

Lense will not work with SLR Nikon D90

This lens is too old for the D90, it has not got the electronics for metering and autofocus.
You can use it manually in M mode but you will have to set the aperture and shutter yourself.
The D90 manual has a section on compatible lenses, page 228 in my version.
This recommends CPU lenses for the D90, type G and D.
