Looks like something went wrong with the shutter. This has been a trusty backup since the D300 arrived many years ago. I've used this body in recent years for outdoor action and events when file size didn't matter.
For the past year or two, the first photo fired in a series on the D2H had been black, and then everything would work fine. Today, I got an ERR message on firing that will go away when the shutter button is depressed a second time, but no image is taken. It just cycles through this ERR message with the shutter locked closed. I tried the two-button reset, but the problem still persists. It only has 101,000 shutter actuations, so it is well short of the advertised shutter lifespan.
I doubt that it is worth it to get the body fixed, considering how little these things are worth today. Anyone have any ideas that I may have overlooked?
