Hi all

Having probs with my D50

When i press the shutter button it sounds like the shutter gets stuck then i get the ERR message I then press the Shutter button again and it releases the shutter but i cant take any pictures.

I have try all my lenses and it does the same thing everytime.

Any Ideas I rang the people i got it from but they didn't seem too interested and they gave me the number for nikon who's technical line is only open from 9 till 5 Part timer's Ha Ha ha

Typical its now the weekend the weather is excellent and my beloved D50 is poorly

I've heard that you can reset the camera any ideas how this is done.

Many Thanks

Hi wadge1, I'm having the same problem, on my completely new D50, i didn't even take one shoot.

I have looked at different forums, and all tell the same: if you have the DX lens, is surely as mulfunction of the camera, and you need nikon service. That's not too bad, except from the fact that i live in Mexico, but bought it in USA.

Have you found a solution? If you have, please let me know.

Hi Wadge1

This may not be your problem but it's worth checking to make sure.

The only time I've had an ERR message on a Nikon camera is when the lens aperture ring is not set to the smallest aperture (which is the largest number on the ring).

So if your aperture ring goes up to say F22, then the ring must always be set to that, or the camera will not work. It's easy for the ring to wander off this setting without you noticing it.

Hope this helps
