When I take a photo on my Nikon D5000, it comes up with an error "press shutter release button again". When I do that, it gives me the same error, and my pictures turn black. Also, when I take my lens off, the mirror is stuck up.

error message

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Check the viewfinder for some kind of error code, I had the same issue with my D80, and there was just ERR message, if the same will happen to you, the DSLR will need to see a repair shop.
