Up until last week this camera had a normal recycling time and did not interfere with shooting, so the 3 sec (this is NOT the flash recycling, it is the shooting) was enough for me. But now it is hanging up and the green processing light stays on and is on when I cannot shoot.
I am thinking the batteries need to be replaced, though they are showing full power. Or maybe the CompactFlash chip?? Or is there a setting that prevents shooting under certain conditions??

If the camera battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Err is usually a camera malfunctrion. Re,ove the batery,a aaaaaatuen camera switch off/on 2-3 times *as if battery still in), replace battery and try again. Read Owners manual or got to Nikonusa.com to download a manual (or to ask Nikon) and determine if your D100 has a hardware reset switch(my dc70 does) and utilize that. If tht does not solve the issue, then service by an authorized Nikon tech is advised.
are you shooting in raw format? and in hi resolution or low resolution ?
If you are shooting in RAW then the buffer of the d100 is full and it needs to empty its buffer before you can shoot anymore pictures
Ellen, When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing. To reset your camera to the factory default settings: Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
These are the buttons marked with a green dot Take a test photo and see if that works.
