Roger :

Hi there. My name is Roger, and it would be my pleasure to help with your issue.

Roger :

This error message is a general catch all for the camera. It can be caused by anything from a bad memory card to a sticking shutter. There's a few steps that you can try to get it cleared, but to be totally honest, this usually requires a trip to the shop to be repaired. Here's the steps to try.

Roger :

First, power off the camera and remove the battery, memory card, lens, and any other accessories that may be removable and let it sit for a few minutes. Then try installing new or verified fully charged batteries only and powering it on with no memory card or lens installed.

Roger :

Try pressing the shutter again and see if you can see the mirror flipping up. Also, here's a good step by step troubleshooting guide with pictures that will give you a good indication of what I'm talking about. CLICK HERE

Roger :

I do want to point out that this is a common thing to occur with Nikon cameras when the batteries are dead or the battery has a bad cell and isn't properly holding a charge, so that also could be the case.

Roger :
