"RE: Cameras won't shoot"

Returning to John's comments, I would be most suspicious of the camera firmware as well. But first, has the handup occurred without the presence of the flash? Have you tried returning to your SB800 to determine if that solves the problem? I had this same problem with my D4 until the first firmware upgrade solved the glitch. I also have a D800, but I bought it after the first firmware update occurred, and never experienced the problem with that body.
This is a longshot, but perhaps the firmware, even if current, hsa become corrupted, maybe given some kind of electrical transient related to the flash. It is easy enough to upgrade (or replace) the firmware as instructed on the Nikon support website. I would then shoot for some substantial time without the flash just to establish that the camera works properly over time, and then carry on from there.
I hope this helps, christina
Cheers
