This sounds like an issue due to low light. The card will not cause the video or pictures to be grainy, but high ISO settings (used to compensate for low light) will. In low light, auto-focus has a hard time and usually a camera won't take a shot unless focus lock occurs.
Assuming you were shooting in a low-light situation, the solution is to add more lighting to the scene. Note that the flash on your camera is only good for a distance of about 10 feet.
the delay of producing pictures might be caused by these conditions: -the active d-lightning option is turned on -the noise redution option is turned on -the camera has been used to take more than 100,000 shots
the mirror in DSLR has it`s own lifecycle, normally they will unstable after 100,000 shots cycle and it is very normal
Sounds like you turned on Exposure delay mode (menu d10). This is similar to the "locking up the mirror" (or somethign) feature on canons.
YOu only need it when you doing a tripod shot with long exposure and you want to minimise absolutly all possibility of shake from the camera its self. Lifting the SLR mirror will cause small shake. Generally you can turn this off (i've felt it ona few times my accident and been confused for a second)
earlier i posted solution in similary problem. maybe help you this.
solution is good batteries, Ni-Mh or Lithium, rechargeable only not alkaline. but...problem is how long you watch pictures on lcd display or how much is flash in use. if always by shooting pics used flash that means that you can with best batteries 30, 20 or less pics shooted. and of course, if you connect camera with pc, how long is cam on? just transfer pics on pc and turn the camera off. the best solution is use the card reader for pics transfering. if is flash off, it's possible to shot 120-150 pics with Ni-Mh. with lithium i don't know, maybe 500 pics. don't use camera lcd for analysing pics it's just there for short preview. with alkaline batt., very low quality, i shot 30 pics without flash.
i shot also very good pics at night without flash. nikon coolpix L15 can do that but you must have more praxis. alkaline batteries shooting! after 3 pictures on display is message: warning! the battery is exhausted. what you can do? turn the camera off. wait about 10 minutes. turn the camera on, you can shot 3 or 5 pictures and than turn your camera off again. you can repeat this few times and you be lucky if you 30 pics captured:) REMEMBER: all this goes without camera flash!!! flash and every zooming use more battery power! and that was all magic:).
I don't know if I have the very same problem with my old nikon Coolpix E44600. I may go through the pictures I have already taken but when I try to take a new one, just as I shoot I get the message the "battery exausted" message and the camera shut down.
Sorry to tell you this but your CCD is gone. In a fwe days time pics will be black in color. CP 5400 uses a batch of defective Sony CCD's. Nikon's service center in Kolkata, India replaced the CCD in my CP 5400 free of cost. This was because Nikon has issued a service advisory. Try your luck with the Nikon service center closest to your home!
