I have the same problem, though it takes a *lot* longer for the picture to come through -- sometimes 10 minutes. Sound is clear as soon as the TV and cable box are on, but the picture can take several minutes to appear. Once it appears, it seems to be fine.
Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

Are your pictures properly exposed and are they sharp or are your pictures degraded? Is that 1/3-second you describe a delay between the time you push the shutter release and the time the picture is taken or somthing else? Check to make sure you're in the proper shutter release mode (slider switch to right of the mode dial). Also, your self-timer may be turned on. Your camera allows you to set a 2 or 10 second delay from the menus. If it is set to 2 seconds and turned on, it might seem like a 1/3-second delay. If that doesn't help, you camera is covered by Nikon's warranty. Contact Nikon Service at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.
It stumped me first time. You have to unplug it, plug it in, then press signal-delay-signal-delay with in 30 seconds. You don't push any othere buttons first. Then it will lock the door, spin the drum, and go into troubleshooting mode.
Dialer Delay is option 17 on page 29. It's default setting is 30 seconds.
To set Dialer Delay, press: 1.Add 2.Option # 3.17 4.Use the numbered keys to enter the time 005 - 254 seconds (all entries must be 3 digits). 5.DONE To turn off Dialer Delay, press: 1.Delete 2.Option # 3.17 4.DONE
Using the self-timer Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface. 1 In any picture-taking mode, press the Info button to turn on the shortcut icons. 2 Press to highlight the self-timer icon. Press to choose a setting: 10 seconds- A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds- A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot- The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later. 3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay. Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the Shutter button completely down.
Follow these steps:
1. In any Still mode, tap Settings to open the Settings
2. Tap Self-Timer/Burst repeatedly, until the desired
Self-timer icon appears at the bottom of the LCD:
10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second
delay (so you have time to get into the scene).
2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second
delay (for a steady, auto-shutter release on a
2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second
delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later.
3. Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down.
The camera takes the picture/pictures
I had the same problem. Check the delay start button even though it doesn't tell you to. To get my machine to work the first time I used Menu #3 (which does not have a delay start) and it worked. Then I tried to use the dough cycle and it wouldn't go either, so I unplugged the machine, plugged it back in, went to Menu # 3 first to see the time (which was 1:50) then I checked the delay time to make sure it was also set at 1:50. Mine was not (it said 2:00) so I moved it down to 1:50 and it started 15 minutes later. I really don't like this 15 minute delay on this machine. I am going to try regular bread later and I will make sure that the delay time is the same as the time given for completing the loaf ( ie make sure it says 3:30 NOT 13:30. I hope this works.
