How to fix Nikon D3000 shutter release button error

20 minutes


My Problem

Every time I tried to take a photo, the shutter release button error appeared and I had to retake the photo several times before the camera was able to take the photo properly.

My Fix

The repair was very easy to do when following these instructions.

My Advice

I noticed that you don't have to remove the screw in the bottom of the battery place to remove the cameras bottom cover. I only removed the bottom cover, cleaned and lubed the gear wheel. When I tried the camera after reassembling it, it worked perfect. No more shutter release button error!
