What's going on with my camera?
posted by revikim to Technology (5 answers total)
I have a Nikon D80 that's served me well for about 3 years. I turned it on half an hour ago to take a photo, but the bit on the small LCD screen that shows shutter speed had err on it instead. I tried changing shutter speeds and shooting modes, everytime i clicked the shutter, it made the sound of taking a photo, but it didn't take a photo. Tried a different lens, no change.
I googled a bit and took the advice to take off the lens and then try to take a photo in manual (and bulb) mode. When i held the shutter down for a few seconds, a few times the mirror didn't come back down after i took my finger off the shutter button.
I've definitely taken over 100,000 photos with the camera, so it might possibly mean i need to replace the shutter... Any other ideas?
