    D5100 liveview not opening

    When I try to open the live view, the mirror opens and closes 3-4 times rapidly, and then it says "Error. Press shutter release button again." See this video where I show what it's doing: https://photos.app.goo.gl/dB6EWGaRj5vEMfW18

    I can still take pictures. But I cannot take videos as I cannot enter the liveview mode. I cannot see what my lens see on the LCD screen.

    I've been searching for that problem online for a while and couldn't find the same problem than the one I have.

    Welcome to the forum. I have no clue on your problem, but if you give us some more info, maybe someone will be able to help. What mode is your camera set at? Have you tried a factory reset? Removed battery and let camera set for a little time?
