Got the shutter and mirror clicks and err msg

This D90 works good for about 3 months until yesterday, seems all the sudden. when the shutter/release button is pressed , it clicks, gives out an all-black picture, and an err msg; next press the button all the way down, it clicks and clears err msg, but nothing else. others seems work fine.

I checked the manual but got no clue. have any suggest. thanks.

Leo.

    What is the 'error' message you receive? I have a D80 so I'm sure I can help you out.

I'm getting a r16 error on my D90


The "r16" in the display is not an error code. It is simply informing you of the number of exposures that can be held in the camera's internal high speed memory before shooting would have to stop while the D90 transfers the pictures to the memory card. If you held the shutter release, you could watch the r16 value decilne by one for each exposure (r15, r14, r13, etc.).

Page 256 of the D90 User's manual indeed shows the Err error code, and defines it as a "Camera Malfunction", "Release shutter. If error persists or appears frequently, consult Nikon-authorized service representative." The "err" error code is a generic error. The camera has detected a problem, but it doesn't know exacly what, similiar to the fEE code. The "err" code could be camera / lens contacts or it could be a circuit board or even shutter failure. You've already tried the common contact cleaning fix (that never seems to solve the problem) without any luck, so you might have to call Nikon Support and arrange for service.

Good luck!

How to use remote shutter release HRN280


First, you need an adapter to fit the HRN280 to the D90. You can order this adapter by emailing [email protected] .

Using the adapter, connect the release to the jack in the side of the D90. After that, simply use the button on the release the same way you use the shutter release button on the camera. Press it halfway to focus and meter, press it all the way to take a picture. In addition, the remote has a slide lock so you can take continuous pictures or use the bulb setting.

How do I set my D90 to use my ML L3 remote?


You need to set the camera's release mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To change the release mode, hold down the release mode button on the top of the camera (marked with overlapping rectangles) and turn the main command dial on the back of the camera.

Full details are in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 64 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from

I have a nikon d90,when i pressed shutter button ,it is giving err message then i press second time it is not giving err message but not taking the photo.


This is an indication that the camera is not "talking" to the lens correctly. When you press the shutter button, the camera tries to focus, set light levels, and then shoot the picture. If it can't focus or set F-stop and shutter speed, then it can't shoot the picture and gives you the error indication. SO
1. You need to make sure the lens is an automatic lens capable of working with the D90. 2. You can take the lens off and back onto the camera a few times in case its a dirty contact issue or just didn't seat correctly. 3. Set the D90 to manual and make sure you move the AF selector on the front to M. Then you would manually adjust all the settings. That should take the auto-coupling out of the picture (pun intended)
4. If it still shows error when in total manual mode, there may be something wrong in the camera itself. Before giving up, do a total system reset on the D90 (I assume you have the manual).

Nikon ML-L3 set up for Nikon D90?


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the release, while delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To change the camera's release mode, hold down the release-mode button to the right of the LCD panel on the top of the camera (marked with the overlapping rectangles) and turn the command wheel on the back of the camera. The icon at the top-right corner of the LCD panel will change. The quick-response remote mode is indicated by a picture of the remote, the delayed remote mode is indicated by both the remote and the self-timer (one-handed clock).

Got my Nikon d90 for 3 months now,but encountering error problem with my Nikon D90 w/ 18 105 vr lens.sometimes when i'm ready to shot it appears on the Top LCD,error F--,..Pls. help guys...Thanks


This is a common problem with this camera/lens conbo. I "solved" it by removing the lens, then reinstalling it - but hold the lens release button down, and rotate the lens a nuber of times (in the camera body) before releasing the button. It appears that the issue is poor electrical contact between the lens and camera body. If there is a poor contact, the camera will not know if thereis a focus and will lock the shutter release. With this poos contact, the camera will only fucntion in manual mode

Hope that this helps

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"


You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

Slow Shutter Speed on Nikon D90


I suggest that you try a system reset for your camera and then complete the following adjustments to see if your camera will respond like it did originally.

Nikon D90 green reset dots. Press at the same time to reset.
Nikon has an easy reset feature. I use it every time I pick up a D90.
My standard operating setting is only a few clicks different from the reset defaults.
I reset everything every time I use my camera, much as a pilot uses a checklist before every flight to prevent any switches from being in the wrong position. When I don't check first, I often have left my D90 in some screwy mode, like 2,500K WB and ISO 3,200, from shooting in the dark the night before.
My checklist is therefore Reset, Program, Basic, Medium, and A3. Allow me to explain:
1.) Reset: Hold down the +/- and AF buttons (next to the green dots) for a few seconds, and the D90 comes out of whatever crazy mode it was in and returns to sanity. The top LCD blinks and everything is back to normal.
Reset leaves the detailed menu tweaks alone and resets only the big dumb things I might have changed overnight.
Once Reset, I change these next:
2.) Program: Spin the top left exposure mode dial to P, program auto exposure.
3.) Hold QUAL and spin the rear dial until you see BASIC, and spin the front dial until you see [M]. You'll always see these on the small top LCD, and if you first tap INFO, you can see it more clearly on the huge rear LCD. (Feel free to use other settings if you have a good reason.)
4.) Hold the WB button and spin the front dial three clicks to A3. This gives warmer (more orange) photos that I prefer.

Excerpt taken from: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d90/users-guide/index.htm

Good luck and happy shooting! I have a D80 and would love to get my hands on the new D90. Make sure you also buy a quality filter for your lens UV0. The quality of the lens is just as important as the body it's attached to.
