I had this same issue. Here's what I found on it in the Coolpix L3 manual:

That hand icon is the "camera shake" indicator, and it will pop up when the flash is off. The other day, I turned off my flash, but somehow it got stuck in that mode and wouldn't respond when I clicked the button to turn the flash back on. Without being able to turn on the flash, anytime I tried to take a photo in regular mode, the camera was warning me, with the hand, that there wasn't enough light and any photo I took would be blurry due to the long shutter speed.

Knowing what to look for now, I put the camera into video mode, then rapid-fire mode, and finally back into regular (green) mode. And suddenly, I was able to click the flash button and turn the flash back on. So that's all it was. Just stuck on my end. You may have had a similar situation, or your flash may be off and you can adjust it.

I hope this helps.

What does the flashing red hand in the upper right


The flashing red light is warning you that the shutter speed will be too long for handholding the camera. Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.

Red hand blinks on screen upper right side. how do i deleet this problem. nikon coolpix 7500.


The red hand icon flashing shows that the camera is using a slow shutter speed, and is a warning to be careful to hold the camera steady.

You could put the flash in auto mode and it will fire when the light is low.

Nikon Coolpix L3 thinks batteries are dead


I think this was a firmware fault on some cameras. Check with Nikon to see if there is a new firmware for your particular camera. This can be downloaded free of charge and uploaded to the camera via USB.

This may not be able to be fixed.
Sounds like internal trouble.
Could be a loose link internally. Could be some problem with the ccd sensor. If the colors change as you are trying to take a picture, then suspect the ccd sensor.
If it is the ccd, then Nikon may fix it for free.
I suggest you go to the Nikon website for your country, and call the (usually toll free) number for service and information.
Take care,
