Nikon d-90 keeps reading out 'err'

\015 Many times in the past few monhts, when i starat to take a pic, the word reads out 'err' and the shutter locks up, turns black, and I take out the battery and replace it, and it's o.k. again. the battery is fully charged and this sometimes happens only inside, it seems to have something to do with the flash setting. I have the dial on he lleft set on auto and I can't remember how to set the flash, I have lost my manual and wolf camera, can't figure it out and/or can't get it to 'err' for them,....\015\012emily in georgia\015

Answers :

The "ERR" error message is a sequence failure and most common problems are shutter, aperture control or sequence motor drive system. When the problem repeats frequently, it will increase until total camera failure. Cameras in need of epairs should be sent to a Nikon Authorized Service Center like Southern Photo in Miami.

I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off!
