    Nikon D5100 Error Message "Error. Press shutter release button again."

    My Nikon 5100 gives me the following message "Error. Press shutter release button again." I do so and nothing happens. The camera will not work and I have also tried charging the battery.

    Any ideas????

    Thanks
    Steve

    The manual (pg226) simply and unfortunately, states this message "Press shutter release button again. If error persists, consult with Nikon-authorized service representative".

    The tip about gently "prying" the mirror to release it from the mirror stop......There's something about the word "prying" that makes me think OUCH.

    Scott, thanks SOOOOOO much. As recommended I was able to troubleshoot my camera using thread / post 8. The camera now works great!

    Great. Glad it worked out for you. Much easier than sending it in for repair. What turned out to be the problem with it?

    The mirror piece immediately behind the lens was wedged against the lower right side of the inside body. I gently unwedged it from the side and it now works perfectly. Still a little worried how it happened and if it will happen again but at this time it works and I know what to look for if it happens again. Hoping my daughter might have banged it hard (and did not tell me) last time she used it. Thanks again.

    It must be in warranty. Send it back to dealer they will fix it as it is physical error. If you want to solve it by yourself follow the step mentioned on this link How to fix 'Press Shutter Release Button Again' error on a Nikon DSLR. they have explained it greatly
