Question about Nikon COOLPIX Cameras
I can follow the instructions in the manual up to the step that shows a finger pressing something. What is it pressing? How do I start the timer?

Salt Water is like the Acid in a car battery...once you drop a camera in the ocean its basically Done! Salt water is a conductor of electricity and will short out parts of the circuit board(s). The best thing you could have done was take it apart and have the circuit boards Sonically cleaned by a jeweler or a place that has the capability to sonically clean electronics. This involves Total disassembly of your camera however. Sometimes its not worth it.Sounds like you still have some salt residue inside the contacts that tell the camera that the self timer switch is "made" or Shorted.
Some CRC Electronic cleaner may work as well...thats the easiest solution. Take it apart and Drench the boards, Contacts with Electro cleaner. Thats where I would start if you can remember how to put things back together.
