[Nikon D90] "Err" message, mirror cannot be locked up,,,

\015 Yesterday I bought an HDMI mini and connected the camera to the TV. After a while of testing the focus on it, the camera's live view went blank, and the Live View on the camera turned off and the camera started showing a blinking error message "err". I turned it off then on, still the error message blinking. I pressed the shutter button, the camera made the "Shutter Sound" as if I was shooting in a high speed mode (like the shutter in closing more than once). Everytime I press the shutter button the LCD shows the shutter speed and the aperture for a second, and goes back to the blinking error message. I kept spamming the shutter button, then tried to turn back the live view. it took photos for a while, then it went black again giving the error message. I turned off the camera, removed the battery for a minute, then put it back on, turned the camea on and looked through the viewfinder while pressing the shutter button. like every 2~3 times the view in the finder is black, then at the 3rd or 4th time I press the shutter it shows the view. I googled the issue, and found things on the internet, people suggested formatting the SD card with a FAT32, I did. I removed the battery. I tried to clean the len's pins and mount pins, but I was afraid and didn't know how it should be. Anyway, I noticed this when I had the lens removed, the mirror had different "angles" everytime I did that. I decided to use the "lock up mirror" option in the settings. It was grayed out, and so was the "clean image sensor". I kept pressing with the shutter button and the mirror lock option became available.. I set the option and removed the lens to look at the mirror.. there was no change, pressed the shutter release like it stated on the screen, and checked the mirror again, it became flat, but with a different bluish colour. The LCD was viewing blinking dashes (---- ---)I tried to click the shutter button to "release the state", nothing happened. so I turned it off, and on, and the error message came blinking again. It is still doing the same and showing the error message.\015\012\015\012Please help me on this issue, please tell me how to fix it... thank you.\015

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,

But I checked and I have enough disk space. Some photos are able to be viewed without problems.

I have a D80 since 2 years and since last 1 week have been getting the 'Err' message. Initially, after referring to the manual & pressing the shutter release button, the camera responded only ONCE. i.e. the 'Err' message disappeared and the pics were SEEN on the screen (which means the shutter was working). Now, even that has stopped. I'm not able to click any pictures (although the mirror moves) and certain specific menus & other buttons on the body dont work. Now on pressing the shutter re

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
