When i try to view my photos on my Nikon Coolpx L11 it says File Contains No image. So i hold down the button which makes the pictures flick past (the one with the +/- on it) and i can view some of them but the others just say File Contains No Image. I tried to download them but cannot. I tried to delete the ones that said File Contains No image but cannot. Is this fixable? If so, How?

Re: File Contains No Image!
Does the camera have internal memory? The folder name might not match the folder you or the camera are looking for. REmove mem card and see if the pics are still on the camera, if so, then try again without the card in. try and see the card in "mass media storage" mode on your PC. Reformat the card in the camera after you get the pics off to reset the folder name.

First, make sure that the Computer recognizes the Camera when connected to it using the USB cable.
When the computer recognizes the connected camera then a "No name" drive appears on the Desktop of the computer.
If the Computer is recognizing the Camera but iPhoto then follow the steps given below to transfer images from the Camera to the Computer:
Double-click the "No name" removable drive on the Desktop to view and navigate through the folders and files on the Camera.
You can see several folders, you may either navigate through each folder to locate the folder that contains the pictures or double click the "DCIM" folder to view all the images. Next, copy all the desired images then paste them on the Hard Drive of the Computer.
I may be able to add some advice on how to solve this unfortunate problem of "file contains no image data". I have been suffering from the same problem. I have recently been on some amazing vacations and the photos I have lost due to this problem have been invaluable to me! I would pay an insane amount of money to get these photos back, but unfortunately I cannot!
I have a nikon coolpix camera. I contacted the nikon coolpix technical support center. I spoke with a representative who asked me what type of memory card I have. As it turns out I have a generic memory card, which is not compatable with nikon. The only memory cards brands that are indicated to be used with the nikon coolpix camera that I have are as follows: Toshiba, Panasonic, Lexmark, and Sandisk. Those are the only 4!
I was told that if you use another memory card besides the memory cards brands that I have listed... that the camera may communicate incorrectly with your memory card, which results in data that is incomplete to support an image. When this happens you will only see a portion of your image, and you cannot get it back. These bad images with incomplete saved information are called "corrupt files". The representative told me that there are some programs that are available to purchase that may be able to correct corrupt .jpg files, but she believes that they are memory card brand specific.
To put it simply, when you do not have to compatable memory card in your camera, it is as if your camera is speaking english and your memory card is speaking chinese and they are not communicating properly (this was the way the representative explained this problem to me). So check your user manual for your specific type of camera or look it up online to see what type or brand of memory card you should be using! I truly hope this helps someone avoid losing invaluable photos!
It could be a loose LCD connection carefully take off the back and lift the LCD very carfully you will see the ribbon cable lift the tab take out the LCD and reinsert it and push the tab back down. If this does not fix it you might have a damaged main board its one or the other.
