Re: nikkon coolpix l10 won't snap picture
just an idea the big multi button with the ok in the middle
press the 3 o'clock bit with the mountain symbol on it (while in camera mode) it should say auto but if it doesn't use the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock keys to select auto then press ok in the middle.

Picture Project was replaced by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX2. Both of those programs will work perfectly well with the L10. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.
Once the pictures are on your computer, you can use View NX2 to look at them and do some editing.
Remove the batteries, wait 5-10 minutes. With the batteries out, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds or so. Put the batteries back in and your camera will start over (re-boot). You will know if it worked if you have to reset the date. But if that lens is really stuck you may be out of luck. The cost to repair it will exceed the cost of a new camera.
First put the cord into the computer and then turn your camera on. Now put the cord in the camera and wait. Your pictures should come up! Hope this helps. But now my L10 dosnt work because my brother hit it! :(.
Hello Winniethe383, AF stands for "Auto Focus", When you are clicking a snap, the camera is trying to bring the subject into focus and the Red light blinking is to show the status that the camera is busy Focusing. Please let me know in case you need any further details and I would be glad to assist you further :)
I sorry to tell you that the user manual is correct. There would be little you could do yourself and if you would attempt any repairs, you would void your warranty.
To make the best of a bad situation, I recommend setting the camera to its highest resolution mode and taking all your picture in the wide angle mode. You can crop the larger images when you get back home and still have printable pics
