Dear John,

Good Luck.

Hi John,

Not good news, I am afraid.  I have checked my D2X manual and it says that a blinking "Err" indicates camera malfunction.  It advises to "release the shutter.  If error persists or appears frequently, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative."

Hey guys i apprecciate that and all of a sudden its stopped i’m weary of it happening again though so i think i’m going to send it in and use the d70 which really sucks but better than having really crap out on me for good. I really apprecciate the help though. thanks again John

These camera’s are computer’s now John, it sucks but it happens. The ERR could be just about anything. One thing you might consider is checking for firm-ware updates on nikon’s web site for your camera and make sure you have the newest updates. Nikon is forever making little corrections that may cure your problem. If not send it in for a check while it’s still under warrantee. If you’re a member of NPS (Nikon Professional Services) you should be able to get a lone of another body until yours comes back. Check on that. Best, JLee
