Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Nikon D50 blinking "Err" message

\015 I have a 2yr old nikon D50. Last September it worked great. I tried it recently and I am getting an blinking "ERR" message. I took it to a local camera shop and they tested the lens and the battery. They are charging me $185 to fix it. This is my fourth Nikon and I am very disappointed because it is the most expensive one I own and the only one with a problem. What could be the problem with it? Thanks.\015

Answers :

Make sure the lens is mounted fully (give it a little twist to see if the error clears). Also, check the gold contacts inside the body, where the body touches the gold "points" on the lens, to make sure they are clean. A pencil eraser is a good cleaning device for these contacts. I hope this solves it for you.

I have a Nikon D80 and one day, I suddenly couldn't take pictures. When I turn my camera on, it automatically blinks the Err message. My shutter mechanics work fine, it recognizes my lenses, and playback is fine, but I can't change any of my setting and it acts like the sensor doesn't work. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)


The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

I have a new (Dec., 2009) D90. This morning I discovered that I had an "Err" message and a "CHA" message. Both were on the LCD panel on the top of the camera. I was not able to turn the camera off, and the only way to turn it off was to take out the battery. Upon reinserting the battery, everything appeared normal, but after taking one shot the problem reappeared. The interesting thing was that I took the camera body to a Nikon certified shop in New York, and they tried it with a different lens,

I have a 4 1/2 year old Nikon 8800VR. It has always worked and except for being rather sluggish, has performed nicely. After a smallish bump, the lens seemed to get stuck - it tried to come out but just whirred until an "err" message came up (not lens err). My RepairTech warranty would still be in effect if Repairtect still existed but it does not seem to, and the only estimate I have is for $300. My question - is this reasonable, and given the age of the camera, is it worth it? And, is there an
