Stuck shutter D100 Nikon

\015 I have a 5 year old D100. I had the shutter box replaced about 18 months ago by Nikon. I worked OK for a while. Now, the shutter locks up until I push the shutter release again. Then it clunks and the mirror comes back down. There is that dreaded error message and then a few clicks later, it clears up. Now, I took three pictures and the shutter locked up and all I get when I press the release is a whirring sound, like an auto-winder on a film camera. No shutter activation, just continuous "err" message and an "R06" where the frames remaining counter is. It seems totally locked up. I took off the lens, remounted it, cleaned the contacts, took out and replaced the battery, took out the CF card, replaced it, hit the camera a few times with my palm...nothing but that whirring sound on shutter release. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

The R06 is the buffer indication, not part of the error. It would appear more work is required. Other components may have failed, or the shutter itself may be bad.

I'm afraid this one is not a DIY. Nikon is pricey on repairs, you may fair better checking the repair service search here on Fixya.

Error Message When I take a photo with Nikon D60 it's as though the shutter gets stuck and it gives an error message on the screen (Error! Press shutter release button again.)

Weird, I know! Any ideas or suggestions?
