Customer Question

Im having problems with my Nikon D600 and the shutter will not release. Ive even gone in and programmed it release regardless if the frame is in focus or not. I was shooting sunset pictures last weekend, saw the focus indicator was green and the shutter would still not release. This was just a landscape shot at about f11 -f22. I am baffled?? This happens a lot in my action shots and is very frustrating. Especially when working a wedding, I've missed too many good shots.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That's a clear sign of a sticky or jammed shutter mechanism.

It's quite delicate, and as easy to make worse (if possible) as better with ordinary tools and means. Having it be sticking, means the camera has to be taken to a camera shop of good quality that can and does fix such problems.

Being a Nikon camera, it needs a Nikon Authorized Service Center. Where are you located, please? by zip code.

Only Nikon themselves (factory repair, essentially) can help with this product's problem.
