Got a 2nd hand D3100 and when i take a shot the mirror stay up until I release it. I have never came across this on any other camera. Is this usual for the d3100. Just to explain. It stays dark through the viewfinder until I release the button for taking the shots. The shutter curtain is working ok because the pictures are fine but this isn't what I'm used to.

Hi there !

Make sure you don't use the "Quiet" mode. When you used this mode the mirror stay up until you release it.
