Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera
I CAN NOT CLICK PHOTOS. THE SHUTTER RELEASE BUTTON HAS STOPPED WORKING. THE MSG DISPLAYED ON LCD IS " ERROR. PRESS SHUTTER RELEASE BUTTON AGAIN". PLZ HELP
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

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

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.

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
