Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

There are tiny springs in the shutter mechanism which can break or become disconnected.

To repair this will require disassembling the camera from the rear inwards, to reach the shutters and repair or replace the affected spring.

A local camera repair shop can do this for you, or you can return the camera to Nikon through your local Nikon dealer or by completing the online return form at:
