The camera says err on the top display. When I try to take a picture, sometimes it won't work at all (little soft click) and other times it makes a very strange, slow shutter sound and still won't take the picture. I took off the lens and the mirror seems to be flipped in an incorrect position.
I tried different lenses and it had the same problem.
Today I was taking photos and the camera quit...the top display says err. The book says release shutter, but I push the shutter and it does nothing but make a little click and the err stays. I took the lens off, and the camera does look like the shutter is open or something.

Won't take a picture?? Why not?? Chip in? battery up? Any error readings? Lens in place? Set on auto? Camera on? Check owner's manual? If you need repair, United Camera is a good place for Nikon repair, they have fixed 2 of my cameras. good prices, no problems.
I had the same problem with my D70.
Ended up having the shutter repaired at the tune of $135.
Works fine now.

Sounds like the shutter is sticking. This could be due to damage or just need cleaning. This probably means that you need to get the camera professionally serviced/fixed as shutters are extremely delicate.
