    Error press shutter release button

    Ok my d5100 is only a couple of months old and the error press shutter release button shows up when i switch it on. When i try to take a pic i hear a small click but nothing happens. I feel very let down by this camera as i was away on holiday when it happened and missed out on taking some great pics. Can anyone help me please?

    I'm sure you have checked your manual. It says to release shutter, and if error persist or appears frequently, consult Nikon-authorized service representative. Sorry but its not something you can correct yourself. Your camera needs serviceing.

    Thanks for that mark. I did check the manual and it does say contact nikon. Very dissapointed as the camera has only taken about 50 photos. :-(

    Have you checked your battery to make sure it's fully charged? The shutter release will do some funny things if it's not fully charged up. Just a suggestion.

    Just a thought make sure your lens is on properly- sometimes you might hit the release button and twist it a bit - bingo error message

    Before you send it off, pop the memory card out and CLOSELY check the contacts.

    Use a different card if you have to just to make sure the problem is not the memory card.

    Hope this helps.

    I just had a similar problem on my D5100 and was advised to send it back for repair. After comparing mine side by side to another at a camera shop, (remove lens and with camera on press shutter release button) the lower right corner of the mirror was binding with the stop. We were able to GENTLY pry the lower right corner of the mirror away from the stop (from the right, not underneath) and now it is functioning flawlessly.

    Hope this helps, I was able to save a lot of time and not miss taking pictures at my daughter's volleyball tournament.
