If you are using the same battery, it could be it has reached the end of life. The charger can indicate the battery is fully charged, because the voltage has reached a correct level, but still the battery can have one or more bad cells. So as soon as you start using the battery, it can lose enough energy to give this nasty message. If you put in another battery and still have the same message, there must be a serious problem in the camera.
To check your battery, just after the camera has given this message, with a multi meter. You will see the voltage has dropped at least 1,2 volt beneath the voltage printed on the battery. The typical 7 volt Nikon battery, will give 8 volt on the multi meter. But placed in the camera it will drop to 7 volt. If the multi meter reading is less then 7 volt it has at least one bad cell and should be replaced.

HiI am sorry to hear, but you will have to some professional. Regarding your d80 has common problem of sequence unit defective. I believe that is the problem and your local repair shop would charge around $75 to 235 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

Error message nikon d60 release not working


I assume that the full message is "Shutter release is disabled." The causes can be as follows:
1. The memory card is not fully inserted, or locked in place; or the write protect tab on the left edge of the memory card is in the protected position. A full memory card could also cause this problem.
2. You are using an automatic lens equipped with a focusing ring and you have failed to lock the aperture at the highest f-number by sliding the locking tab on the lens.
3. You are using a non-CPU lens, in which case you must rotate the mode dial to "M" and manually set your ISO, shutter speed and f-stop.
4. Your flash is not fully charged.

Take a look in your camera's menus. There should be a place where you can select rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries. That setting enables or disables the battery charging circuit. If you are using rechargeable batteries, the camera must be set accordingly so that the battery charger will turn on. If you are using
Alkaline batteries such as Duracell or other types of non-rechargeable batteries the charger must be disabled. If you do not set that parameter correctly, you will get the symptoms you describe.

My nikon D40 says my battery is dead


For the price of a battery, I would replace it. There are plenty of good quality chipped aftermarket batteries for the D40 for only a few dollars.

Depressing my shutter button on my Fuji FinePix E550 causes it to turn off. When I turn it back on there is a no image message. Is it cheaper to buy a new camera than to have it fixed? Thanks for help


You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!

You will need to use 2100 mAh or 2500 mAh rechargeable batteries, as others are not powerful enough. To format the card, look in the menu system (or, indeed, in the manual) for the 'format' command.
