My camera which I purchased in June 06 did the exact same thing after 6 months.
I contacted Nikon, they fixed the problem at no charge. I purchased another of the same camera and it did the exact same thing. I think there is a problem with the camera in general and you should contact Nikon and see what they will do about it. I am sure they will fix it as they don't want all of these reportables to add up and have to do a recall.
You haven't given me much information to go by. Does the lens move? Does anything light up? Will the camera play back? Help me here please.
