I recently received a D3400 as a gift, and was taking practice shots to get familiar with the camera. About a week ago, I ran into a problem I have been unable to solve, and hope someone here can point me in the right direction.
When in Auto mode, I can press the shutter release button half-way down to observe the focus; however, when I continue to press the shutter release button to actually take the photo, it does not shoot. I have tried changing to another mode, but still have the same issue.
Battery is fully charged, and there are only 18 photos on a 64GB card. There is not a warning - I just cannot take a photo.
Can anyone help? I have read the user's manual twice, and there is nothing to suggest a solution. Thanks.
