The most amount of frames I can get when I hold down shutter release now is 2. I get 2 frames then the camera stops until I depress the button again. I have tried it in C, S and M modes as well as CL and CH modes and at different resolutions and with different CF cards. Camra is about 2 years old and works fine other wise.
How do I fix the problem? Thanks Mike McGrath email@example.com http://www.modellaunch.com/user_home.php

most likely cause is failure of the motor in the SQ unit on the side of the mirror box. This ***** the shutter, raises the mirror, and operates the aperture unit. They're made in China, motors are **** This is a very very common problem, and the part is always on back order at Nikon. As Nikon has announced that they are going to stop selling parts - to anyone - in a couple of months you are probably better off sending it to them. Be prepared for a bill a little less than $200.
also if you pressed down really ******* the release to get it to fire, you may also have broken the release switch
If the shooting information is not displayed in the monitor, press the info button. Press the <i> button to place the cursor in the information display. Use the direction arrows to highlight the current release mode and press OK. Choose Continuous release mode (the overlapping rectangles).
In this mode the camera will take approximately three frames per second as long as the shutter release button is held down. The speed will be slower with slower shutter speeds, and eventually you'll fill up the memory buffer and then the memory card.
If you're using the flash, the flash isn't going to charge that fast.
If your shutter speed is slower than a third of a second, you're obviously not going to get three frames per second.
If the camera is set on AF-C and the subject is moving, the camera may be having trouble tracking it.
If you're shooting RAW and have a slow memory card, the buffer will fill up quickly and slow you down. Try it with JPEG and see if it makes any difference.
If you have the exposure delay mode (custom setting #31) turn on, the camera will wait about 0.4 seconds before shooting, and this applies even in continuous mode.
Check all of the above. Set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Turn off the autofocus. Set the image quality to JPEG Basic. Set the camera to Continuous 3 fps. Now, press and hold down the shutter release button for five seconds. Does the camera take about fifteen pictures?
If you've checked all of these and it still won't do it, post an additional comment here and we can go from there.
Press the button on the upper right side of the top LCD screen, there are five options, multi shutter, self timer, self timer remote and remote. each shown by their respective symbols. you should be on single shutter mode, so press this button once and it will be on multi shutter.
