Is it possible to use the self timer on the camera to repeatedly take photos without pressing any buttons?
You'll want to consider:
-Take a FULLY charged battery at a minimum, if not a spare. Long exposures can drain a battery quickly.
-Take a flashlight. One dropped lens cap, or a need to fumble through the buttons on the back of the camera, and you'll thank me :-)
-Take a tripod. There are other makeshift ways of stabilizing your camera, but a tripod is pretty much a requirement to get the best results. They don't have to be expensive or fancy, just hold your camera securely. A stable, non-moving camera is of utmost importance.
-Use your research into long exposures to get an idea of how to configure the settings on your camera, then TRY IT! Nothing beats practice. You won't be an Ansel Adams right out of the gate. The beauty of digital is that you can view your results immediately and adjust. You'll learn more from taking the basics and using them in a trial and error fashion rather than "theorycrafting".
2) Have you tried another lens?
If it doesn't shoot in neither conditions, you should probably take your camera to an authorized Nikon service center.
