Question about Nikon N60 35mm SLR Camera
When in the af mode the camera just runs the lens in and out without focusing and i am guessing that is why the shutter will not release.
90% of the time this is wear in the lens gears. This makes the linkage sloppy and so the lens overshoots focus, which ultimatley leads to the camera hunting for correct focus.
Try a different lens, if that works fine then the old lens is worn.
Something to remeber here is that it is possible to devise a focus system which allows for this but it does slow the lens down. However some cameras may cope better with a sloppy lens than others so the lens may be usable on a different camera body!
A trick which might work is to lightly lay a fingertip on the side of the focus ring to add a little friction for the gear train to work against. This may just be enough to prevent the lens from overshooting the propper focus point. It's not a real practical fix but it will confirm the diagnosis.

Take the camera off auto focus,if the shutter fires and you can manually focus, then the lens must be repaired. Take the lens to a camera repair shop and get an estimate.
