20 Most Recent Nikon D3100 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Can anyone help me.

So I recorded an important interview on the weekend with a NIKON D3300 but didn't know it was on mute instead of Auto microphone..

Is there a way that I can unmute this video while editing please??

This often depends on the shooting mode you are using. It is often on a selection wheel. Say you are in Fireworks mode the flash will not fire. If you get out of a special mode back into normal camera I am pretty sure your flash will not be greyed out.

See if you can reset the electronics and restore the unit to factory defaults. If no result and if Nikon does not have a hidden code to fix situation you will either have to live with the situation, replace the camera, fix the camera (not cost effective.) Your choice.

If a pin got damaged, then a trip back to a Nikon repair center is the only way to properly repair it. It may be still under warranty if it's less than 3 years old.

Press the MENU button. Select Setup (the wrench icon). Select "Date Imprint" and set it to Off. Then you should be good to go.

1) Make sure your battery is at least 50% charged.
2) Open the menus and go to the tab with the wrench.
3) Highlight "Lock mirror up for cleaning".
4) Follow the triangular arrow to the right and lock the mirror up (don't worry that it is already locked up).
5) Turn the camera's power off. Wait a few seconds and power it back on. The mirror should release.

What do you mean by flash mode?
Have you read the manual how to use the camera?
If nothing from there helps, try connecting it via USB and check if there is firmware update. If even that doesn't help, try acessing menu and doing hard reset from there.

It could be either the battery or the camera.

If you have a second battery, try it. If it works with the second battery then the first battery is bad.

If you don't have a second battery, take your camera and battery to a good photo store. They should have a second battery to try. You might be able to test your battery with one of theirs. This will tell you whether the battery or the camera is bad.

Hi Robert,
I am thinking of one cause but first you will have to answer a simple question for your self before proceeding.
"How old is your camera?"
If it is old enough, the problem you are encountering is technical and you will surrender your camera to a qualified technician/ camera service center for proper check.

Digital cameras are electronic equipment; thus have component parts such as capacitors, resistors etc that are almost dead. the first time you power on, they work fine but as the heat builds up, those parts stop working completely. that is when you cannot take any more pictures. Only trained technicians can fix that kind of problems.

Try putting the card that is in your camera into into your computer and see if you can see the pictures.

Open the "Shooting Menu" by pressing the Menu button. Press the right Multi-selector and then scroll up or down to "Image Quality". Press the right Multi-selector and you will see the various choices for JPEG and NEF combinations and quality, make your selection by scrolling up or down and pressing "OK".
As for converting you NEF photos to JPEG; you can easily do that in one of several ways on your computer. If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop, all you have to do is open your pictures, select "Save As" and use the pull-down menu to select JPEG and save. If you do not have that program, there are several conversion programs available on the Web; manu for free. I use a program called BatchConverter on my Mac. There are similar programs of PCs.

hoestly, no idea how to fix a faulty camera. But I can help youu with some advice: did it actually take the photos?
Remove SD memory and introduce it in a SD reader for PC.
It should show as a Removable disk and you can verify if your photos are there

When the pictures on the memory card are black to, it is really defect. If only the screen is black, although you need it for the settings, you still could use it to shoot in automatic mode.
Won't be worth repairing it, because new ones are cheaper.

Oops. that hurts. But I'm afraid it won't be worth repairing this one. I already saw the body been sold for less than 300 euro new. And I think the repair centre will ask more for opening and closing this one. Then you still have a used body.
Start saving or perhaps you have an insurance that will pay a new one for you?

It depends what lens cap you have some lens caps you pinch off
Others you pull off some screw off its the easiest thing you can do on the camera you should have had a a1 filter screwed on before the lens cap then all you would have done is unscrew it all.
Then again you may have to take it to Nikon on Wilshire

Hi Andrew - There are several hacked firmware files for this camera. Most that I have seen deal with allowing 3rd party battery usage, 17 minute video, unlimited video and variable shutter and aperture control during video recording. There may be others. I suggest you either (a) contact eBay and open a dispute resolution ticket to return the camera to get your money back or (b) try installing an authentic Nikon 3100 firmware from & as per instructions on the site:

https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/18725

Understand that option (a) is preferential. If for some reason you can not do (a) then (b) would be the next step. Any time firmware is updated, there is a risk of damaging the hardware. This is especially true if power is removed during the process - but other things can happen, too. Finally, if (b) doesn't work for you then you may have to hack the firmware as shown in the link below (or your choice of hacks):

*THIS ALSO WORKS ON NIKON D5100*

Finally after 4 years we have a hacked/custom firmware that enable full manual video control on the Nikon D3100 DSLR. Just like the D3200 or Canon 5D, 7D ect. you can simple adjust the shutter speed/angle and the ISO sensitivity of video as well as the usual aperture control. You can even adjust shutter speed while recording!
