I just bought my D50 in July. I had taken about 1700 pictures and was very happy with the D50 performance. However, during the first week of October, I got a flashing ERR message when trying to take pictures of my Daughter's skating lessons. The "shutter" makes a weird noise and the mirror locks out of the way. Pressing the shutter button again releases the mirror, but the camera will not take a picture. Picture review works fine.

I see in several Digicam forums that this is a problem with the D70.

I took mine in for repairs and after 4 weeks, I finally got it back. Terrible service in my opinion for a so-called world class company.

The repair order from Nikon says "Repair Shutter - Clean and Adjust" but there are no other details given. I just hope that this isn't an ongoing problem or Cannon here I come.

Anyone else have the ERR message on their D50?
