As stated by Brian (blw) above, the "ERR" message covers a lot of errors. One of these is a shutter time self check. The shutter opening time is measured with an IR source and detector. If the measured time is out of tolerance with the requested time, "ERR" is displayed. Given the image problems you are reporting, I would suspect a major shutter problem.
