Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

How old is your camera, please?

If you press the shutter release button, does the error go away?

Had camera for six years. error stays on
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.

The gear that propels the shutter release may be sticky.

Or the motor that drives that gear may be getting weak.

Or the shutter itself may have a problem with releasing.

There are things you can try, but I'm sorry to say that this camera probably needs to go to Nikon Repair, which can be engaged (or located) through this page:

You could also try, before going to Nikon Repair:

- removing the batteries, and leaving the camera on a (dry, non-humid, non-dusty) shelf for overnight. Then put the batteries back in and try the camera again.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
