You don't give much to go on here.-especially with your shutter question. What happens exactly when you try to move wide from 55 to 18. Described exactly what you are doing.

I have no idea really. I've never heard of this. Can you zoom in the lens OFF the camera?

Do you know how to zoom an slr lens? (this might sound like a silly and offensive question, but i mean it in a good way. A lot of people don't know that you have to turn the ring on the lens to zoom in, as opposed to the way compact cameras do it).

Hm wel then the best solution might be to send it back to where you bought it and demand a new one that does work. Shouldn't be a problem seeing as you just bought it.
Another option would be to send it to nikon for repairs.
