Turn the speed dial to the M90 or B setting. That will complete the release cycle for the camera. Neither of those settings require battery power. You probably need new ones. Clean the cap surface and the contact in the camera with a pencil eraser to make sure you get good contact. Install the batteries so the positive side faces up in the cap. Use two 1.5 volt S76 or A76 cells. The single cell 3 volt lithium is not recommended.

Camera won't take pictures


On page 256 of the D-90 users manual it says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction that can be cleared by releasing the shutter. On my D-90 when this occurs, I have to turn the camera off to make the shutter release. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reinstall the battery to get the shutter to release.

The manual also says that if this error occurs frequently or persists to contact n authorized Nikon service center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon,com before you contact a service center to see what tech support advises. I have heard of people resolving this problem by upgrading the firmware (camera software). Nikon tech support can tell you if this will help.

This information works for my D-90 and could work for your D-40

Hi, see if the batteries or the battery are installed correctly (positive side as the bat. cover shows + sign).
Mesure the voltage = 3 volts.
Look at the battery cover and body contact, and see if there is contact battery leakage;clean if necessary.
Also the counter should be in 1, nothing happens, the counter SW dirty or defective contact.

Is ther a remote for the nikon s3000


No. Nikon does not make a remote for the S3000. Its shutter release button is not threaded for an old-fashioned cable release, and there is no provision for remote operation via the USB connection.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

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.

Nikon d40x shutter stuck


The manual (pg 112) simply, and unfortunately, states this message "Press shutter release button again. If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative".

Some questions that might help: have you had the camera in some extreme conditions, damp, sand, etc. Clean the shutter button really well. Maybe use a small air blower and clean in the shutter release creases.

In the end, if the error continues, it will need to be serviced.

Faulty nikon d40


I had the same error message, the camera is less then a year old, however, I was taking up to 800 pictires every weekend of my kids soccer games, then a 6 month trip to the Pursian Gulf, that is when it started, I got back home, took it right in, and one year later after a few visits and calls trying to find out where my camera was, I finally got an answer back, they said I needed a new shutter which will cost $300, They said I should just by a new body for $400. What Nikon does is set that error message to pop up at about 35000 shutter releases, and you can't do a thing about it, once they hooked my camera up to thier system the said I had over 36000 shutter releases, where the average person takes 10000 a year and they want you to replace the body every 3 years....so before buying any camera, always check out how many shutter releases you can get when you buy a camera

Error shoting


It is a technical problem in the hardware of the camera which has to be fixed by a technician.
I just fixed this problem two days ago.
