Have you tried a new or different battery?

yes but it didn't make a difference, both battery are on the low side but my camera should still work. I'll put one on the charger and will see but I highly doubt it is the problem but I could be wrong

I believe the icon on your LCD is telling you the White Balance (WB) is set for Florescent Light. You can change it.

Consult your manual and do a two button reset or a default reset to return the camera to factory settings.

That is NOT the WB indiocator. That is the battery indicator. When it flashes, it means the battery is nearly dead and the camera just refuses to operate. Charge batteries completely before placing them in the camera.

No the picture I've show was the wb fluorecent setting, I saw the battery flashing before but never make my camera stop working. never seen that wb icon because I either wba1 or set it myself with a gray card

Nope, it is the White Balance indicator showing that it is set for Florescent.

The battery indicator is in the upper left corner of the control panel. Please refer to page 8 of the D7000 User Manual.

No everything in good working order now!! Mike-in-ark was right it was the wb fluorescent, it was the first time I saw it because I always use auto1 or do a custom wb white a grey card!! The only problem was that both my battery were running low which never happen before! I charge them up and it is running like a champ!! I just freak out because not too long ago I got the Dread Err message on my top lcd and my mirror got stuck!! I was shooting my nephew speed skating in the arena and it was a little bit cold. After a few hours warming up in my house and shooting 10 to 15 pics it start working again.
