I am far from qualified to diagnose problems but since no one else has offered......Did you try the 2 button reset, or my first guess is dirty contacts on the mounting area of the camera and/or lens.

If I understand correctly, you get no error message on the top LCD?

Check and clean the contacts, http://photographylife.com/how-to-clean-slr-camera-lenses

one other thing ,try setting the focus to "release priority" and see if you can take a photo.

I guess you do not have another lens to try?  Perhaps a friendly merchant will permit you to try a lens.

Also posting a photo here (if you can take one) with  the exif intact, may help someone make a better diagnosis.

Good luck........one other thing, at times Nikons tech support can be very helpful.
