Things you can try for starters
Turning the camera off, take the battery out, put the battery back in and turn it on again.
Also try a different memory card
And make sure the lens is mounted on correctly.

Use a clean cloth, such as a handkerchief to gently rub the contacts on the lens and those inside the lens throat. Don't use a tissue because it might leave dust that will find its way onto the sensor.

Contact Nikon if the camera is still under warranty.

If cleaning doesn't work it may be a faulty chip and the only action is a repair. If it's under guarantee it won't cost you anything. Take it back to the shop where you bought it and they will send the camera off for you. If you haven't had it long you should ask for a replacement.
