I have had an issues and not sure what I should do, here is what happened:
Yesterday I was shooting with my D5100 and all the sudden it would not respond. I would press the shutter release and nothing would happen. It would not focus, it would not fire, nothing. After turning it off and on again, nothing. I thought maybe the card was full (even though I knew it should not be) and I switched memory cards. It started working after this as I continued to shoot again the same issue. This time I knew there was no way the card was full. After letting the camera sit for a bit it finally started working again. By this point I was done trying to shoot. (Note: Both cards were less than half full once I got home and started looking, and I have taken more shots that what I did yesterday on both cards.)
I am not sure what to do and this really concerns me. Why would the camera just stop shooting? When I got home I preformed a master reset but have yet tried to do much shooting with it to see if the issue happens again. Also the camera has the latest firmware available according to Nikon's website.
Have others seen/heard of this issue before? What can I do to remedy this if it happens? I read where another person had this same issue but nothing was listed as to how it was resolved. Nikon has nothing on their website I can find. Thoughts? Ideas? Could it be simple user error on my part?
Here is the equipment I am using:
- Nikon D5100
- Transcend Class 10 16GB memory cards (2 of them)
- Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (standard kit lens)
- Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6
