This indicates a lens fault. Either something is preventing the lens from coming out or the mechanism has already been damaged.

Unfortunately the damage isn't worth repairing as a perfectly good, boxed and virtually unused Coolpix 3100 can be bought on auction sites for under £25. The parts you'd need to repair your camera would cost more than that (in the unlikely event that you could get them) and would need professional fitting.

Daughter opened battery area under water accidentally. dried it. red light at battery flashing. Can it be fixed??


The good news is, the flashing red light on your camera means that the camera itself did not short-circuit and still may work. If it's flashing red next to a battery logo or it is a flashing battery logo that could indicate that the battery itself is fried and you would need to purchase a new battery. You can find camera batteries for cheap on websites such as Amazon.com

My Nikon Coolpix L1 Digital Camera won't turn on but I do get an indication of the green light for a second but the lens won't extend..


hi there,

i had a similar problem, in that the green light would flash but nothing would happen,

best to try a brand new set of batteries, and if that doesn't work, the ribbon which brings power from the batteries to everythin else may not be connected fully. if you have the skill, or know some one with the skill, just open the camera up, and check all the ribbons (the power ribbon is identified generally as a green ribbon).

hope this helps :)

regards

I visited a brick-and-mortar camera store and asked a repair specialist. There I learned that the problem with my camera is a firmware problem and not worth fixing. I'll throw away the camera and buy another $150 disposable camera.

Nikon coolpix s210 Not taking pictures


It sounds like you should try a new set of batteries in the camera. I have a similar camera and the flash is the first to go when the batteries are dying.

I hope this helps,

When shutter depressed "AF" and "SB" LED's flash


My camera's shutter will not depress all the way due to a red flash light coming up all the time in the Flash-Ready indicator lamp (refer to pag 28 in the Nikon manual). It can be full sun outside but it will not work due to the red flash light coming on.

A work around is to select a flash mode of 'cancel'.
There is a button toward the front of your camera called the flash mode button. Click that until you see strike mark on the flash icon of your monitor screen (see page 32 in the Nikon manual).

The camera must have a malfunction of determining the lighting so it always thinks you need to have a flash on the picture. Of course this is not 'fixing' the flash/lighting issue but you can take typical day pictures for now with this work around.

Af and flash button flash continuously when camera switched on


How old is the camera? Take a new approach to Nikon. But costs are about right- it is no joke.
