20 Most Recent Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


How could I resist assisting someone with the handle 'Charm City'? What I would advise is getting some good quality 2300 mAH or 2500 mAh re-chargeable batteries - although all batteries have a nominal 1.5v output, not all can provide the sustained power necessary for the camera.

It worked. I just gently nudgged the extended(stuck) lens to one side by hand. (the side which had the gap.) There was a click sound and the lense housing fell back in place. Sweitched off and switched on again and the lense started working fine. thanks.

I banged mine around several times and tried to force the retractable lens in and out. Neither of these things worked. I finally thought "what the heck it's broken anyway" and used a bobby pin to try to force the outer lens cover off. After applying just slight pressure it unjambed the lens cover and it works fine now.

Most camera battery compartments have "raised lines" on the cover. They usually suggest that you put your finger or thumb on that surface and push with a sliding motion to open the cover. Again, there are many different models, but the Coolpix I have seen have that kind of opening device. Hope this helps!

The multi selector is the round control on the rear of the camera with the OK button in its center.
The flash mode button is the top button on the selector, it has a lightning flash icon.

Press the flash mode button on the multi selector.
Highlight the desired mode and press the center of the multi selector.

The flash modes are:
AUTO; Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
AUTO WITH RED-EYE REDUCTION; Reduces "red eye" in portraits.
OFF; Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor.
FILL FLASH; Flash fires whenever picture is taken. Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and back-lit subjects.
SLOW SYNC; Flash illuminates mainsubject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light

The selected flash mode icon appears at the top of the monitor.

Are you using View NX software for transferring files......or copy directly from memory card. Trying a card reader is an easy way....

What type and size memory card? The L3 works with SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

This camera needs to be sent away for repairs. Just like a motor vehicle, some repairs to your camera require a technical specialist to fix your problem.

Make sure you have the internal menu for the battery selection correct.
Choosing the wrong battery may cause this.

Rechargeable batteries and alkaline batteries are not the same.

This may also be a condition and problem caused by the camera itself, and may need repair.
