Err on D300 and cannot see through view finder and D300 cannot focus
5 months ago

The Err error showed up on my D300 and the view finder is dark. The camera does not focus hence cannot shot. I tried with two lenses and the camera behaved the same. On the manual it said to press shutter to release it to get rid it off. It worked a couple of times and the error will return after a few shots. I took the lens off and pressed shutter a few times and it may fix it but once I shot with lens it comes back again. Now I cannot use D300.

I searched web and many had this problem. Nikon charge $250 or more to fix but many reported the error would return even after Nikon fixed it. But most were reporting the Err error and did not report their viewfinder is dark and cannot focus. I assume it's the same error.

So what's the complete solution? I guess I eventually have to go to Nikon services. Thanks.
