Anyone ever have a Nikon D200 hang up on them? I was in the middle of a session and the shutter button would not fire the shutter, lens did not auto focus, all command dials were lit up, battery was at pretty full charge, turned camera off and on again, still didn't work until it just decided to on its own. Any ideas or suggestions?
Oh, was using 70-200Vr lens

They can act strange with slow CF cards. But you've got to shoot big bursts.

Often times in these strange lockups, you want to do more than just turn the camera off and on again. Take one additional step. Turn camera off. Remove the battery. Wait a few seconds. Put the battery back in. Turn the camera on. Often this method will work. I seems to work for all brands of cameras and I've used it several times for several different cameras.
Cheers,
rfs

I've had to remove and reseat my Canon lens for AF, but haven't had the shutter stick yet.

I say what Mr. Smith says, I shoot Nikon as well, and that should clear up the problem. I don't think it's a high burst rate, Nikon has that down pretty good, I've shot my D2Xs at full speed and only towards the end did it get slow, but soon after, like a second or so, that cleared up on it's own.

I had the same thing happen on my D200. The shutter would not fire and the lens would not focus. Nikon told me to remove the lens and then re-attach it. That worked, but then it happen again. At that point, I sent the camera back to Nikon. Nikon said they cleaned all the lens mount contacts and the camera itself. The problem has not happened since.
