    Hi all. I have an issue. My position is command photographer for the ship I am stationed on. We have two Nikon cameras (D40 and D70). The D40 had fell off my workbench, hit a padded chair, then onto the deck. The deck is steel with 1/4" of rubber matting as the covering. Once that happened, I picked up the camera, ran a quick optest and found that the shutter will close when I push the button, but will not open. It will open when the shutter button is pushed again. The camera will also not record the photo in this instance. I have tried contacting Nikon customer service, to no avail. :mad: Anyone have any ides?

    Thank you!
