I just got this great, tiny, Nikon to for whem my other bodes are too big to bring.

However, occasionaly the damn thing wont take a pic!

What happens is that everything works normally, including AF, even makes the AF confirm beep. But when the button is pushed all the way in-nothing!

Switching the camera off, then on does not help.

Opening the battery cover does help, and I've gotten very quick at opening the cover and then reclosing it- which always cures the problem.

It did it again tonight-in very un-demanding conditions- and I noticed that the green light on the camera back was staying on. Must be a clue!

Is faulty or is it user error (again!)of some sort.
