    I have a Nikon D70 and it seems that if I am shooting continuously all of a sudden the camera malfunctions and flashes Err and will not allow me to continue. It has cleared itself approx three times then recently refused to work at all. No one seems to be able to solve this and Nikon service department claim there is no problem. I sent camera for repair but they have not offered any advice or solutions. It still does not work. Not impressed with Nikon service so may just go and invest in a Cannon.Has anyone else had this problem? I would appreciate any support. Maggie

    The camera will not take a picture or flash. It keeps flashing Error 2. I have no idea what it means. I have a Fujifilm canera and the number at the bottom of the camers is 7483337.

I am having the same problem with my coolpix for the second time. The 1st time, I sent it back to Nikon and had it fixed under waranty. This time, Warranty has expired, Nikon asked $260 for repair. That is ridiculous, I could buy myself a new camera. There must be a flaw in the design because I have heard of that problem before. I have owned 5 Nikons but am seriously thinking about switching to Canon since Nikon is having difficulty with competition, and that reflects on customer services. Suggestion: Buy a new camera is what it is meant to be.

Nikon d80 err code

While I can't speak specifically to the D-80, my D-90 users manual say the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and can be cleared by tripping the shutter. The only way I can do this on my D-90 is to turn the camera off and back on. Sometimes, but not often, I have completely remove the battery and reinstall it. The users manual also says that if the problem persists to contact a Nikon service center. I suggest you contact Nikon support at www.nikon.com before you consider repairs.

When I turn on nikon d80 err flashes

The Nikon D-90 users manual says on page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and that it can be cleared by releasing the shutter.

I've found on my D-90 that the only way I can get the shutter to release is my turning the camera off. When I turn it back on the ERR message is gone and the camera functions as it should.

Occasionally, I have had to remove and reinstall the battery to make the camera turn off but this happens only rarely.

The users manual says if the condition occurs frequently or persists that you should contact a Nikon authorized repair center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon.com to see what they suggest. I think this information would apply to the D-80 as well.

Keeps showing err but can't find solution.

usual cause: failure of the phase switch in aperture unit. the gear with contacts (one of the plastic rivets beaks and contacts will not stay in place) needs to be replaced. They are now available on Ebay.

I bought new batteries for my N65 and my camera keeps blinking ERR.

The manual mentions only 2 conditions where the Err message appears. First if it is Err + E at the same time, the film has not completely wound and needs to be reloaded.

If it is Err alone, the manual states to fire the shutter and see if the message remains. If it does, to contact a Nikon Authorized Service Rep.

The film is not inserted correctly. pull film leader out until it just reaches the red line on the take up spool, then close the bacl. "ERR" should be gone

Err

The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.

Nikon d-90 keeps reading out 'err'

The "ERR" error message is a sequence failure and most common problems are shutter, aperture control or sequence motor drive system. When the problem repeats frequently, it will increase until total camera failure. Cameras in need of epairs should be sent to a Nikon Authorized Service Center like Southern Photo in Miami. Lots of repair information on all types of cameras can be found at http://blog.sp-ts.com so check it out for more repair information.

Nikon D100 randomly has "err" code flashing

You need a new shutter box.
It may be worth cleaning the contacts on both camera and lens.
Clean the contacts in the lens mount using a fiberglass "pencil" designed specifically for cleaning contacts. These are available at just about any photo supply store/firm.

send it to nikon. seem like a common problem
