I see "Err" on top display after turning the camera on. it clicks but no images are stored.
i've seen this error before once or twice but it always went away after i switched the camera on/off and changing Manual to Aperture priority, and then manual worked again.
well this time is not going away and it happened on day 1 of my trip to Ecuador! This is highly depressing.
The Err code shows up when i power the camera on with or without lens. I confirmed lenses work ok with other cameras. I tried with multiple batteries and memory cards. Also can confirm cards work when viewing photos.
so far found 2 possible explanations
- dirty / damaged contact points on the lens
i tried 2 lenses, tried cleaning contacts with alcohol, also tried examining for any damage
- broken aperture control apparatus.
i can't find any way to verify if in fact my camera body has some broken aperture sensor.
any info would be highly appreciated, also maybe some advice on how to lease a camera body in Quito Ecuador.
I am testing this with 2 lenses i brought.
- Nikon 50mm 1.8 (came with the camera)
- Nikon 14-24 2.8
the "possible duplicate" suggested post does not answer my question. it also does not have any accepted answers. the explanations in answers below are a lot more detailed with photos giving me more information on troubleshooting my issue
** update **
nothing worked so far. I dropped it off at Camera Doctor in nyc so should get some answers soon hopefully
