Question about Nikon Coolpix 990 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Menu buttons not working

I recently purchased a Nikon 990 second-hand, in order to try out infrared photography. However, the up and down (though not the left and right) menu buttons are not working, and I am rather loathe to spend $200 for it to be looked at (!) by an authorised Nikon repair center (the camera being well out of warranty). As such, is this likely to be a relatively simple repair, and if so, how would I go about it? Thanks!

How do I set up Vivitar remote for Nikon D5300


Set the camera to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the camera when you press the button. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing.

See "Remote Control Photography" beginning on page 70 of the manual: http://download3.nikonimglib.com/archive1/nDjd000XOIQF00mktpj7624w9V96/D5300RM_(En)01.pdf . Just pretend you have the Nikon ML-L3.

If it is new then it should still be under warranty. If so I would suggest taking the camera back to the store that you purchased it from and ask if they can fix or replace the model.

How do i set my picture timer to take a hands free pic with my nikon coolpix l20?


Press left on the multiselector (marked with a one-handed clock). Use up/down to select ON from the menu and press OK. The self-timer will fire the shutter ten seconds after you press the shutter release button.

How to turn light on the python 990 remote?


If you just want the LCD backlit turned on, press and hold the program button on the back of the remote until the remote gives a long tone, that indicates that you've entered programming mode. Then within 5 seconds of entering programming mode press the the unlock button. The remote will beep once for backlight on and twice for backlight off. In the "on" setting your backlight will turn on each time a button on the remote is pressed. It will run down your battery faster though. It's the same for both the 990 and the 950 remotes.

How to use remote trigger to take a photo with Nikon D300


I'm going to assume you mean the ML-L3 remote. If I'm wrong, please post a comment specifying the remote you are using.

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick remote fires the camera when you press the button on the release. Delayed-response remote waits two seconds to let you hide your hand behind your back before it fires the camera.

The ML-L3 is an infrared remote, so it must be pointed in the general direction of the infrared receiver on the front of the camera.

No instructions need to know how to operate


The Nikon MC-EU1 Remote Cord is an accessory available for the Nikon COOLPIX 880/885/990/995 4300/4500/5000/5400/5700/8700 cameras. The MC-EU1 Remote Cord is 80 cm long and allows the camera to be fired remotely like a cable release for a film-based camera.

The MC-EU1 Remote Cord's main function is to prevent camera shake. As well as the shutter release function, the MC-EU1 has the following functions.
1. operate the camera's zoom remotely,
2. advance or return images in the playback mode,
3. Controlling interval photography, automatically fire the cameras over a given interval.
Note this is the only Nikon remote cord available NIKON COOLPIX cameras and is only compatible with the cameras listed.

The Nikon MC-EU1 remote cord has two Interval modes, A and B

In Interval Mode A: the first photograph is taken at the start; and subsequent photographs taken at the specified time intervals, thereafter.

In Interval Mode B: the first photograph is not taken until the specified time interval has passed and subsequent photographs taken at the specified time intervals.

These modes can be selected by pressing the MODE button. The device cycles through settings in the order, Remote Mode, Interval Mode A, and Interval Mode B. When the Remote Mode is selected, the LCD panel displays Remote; when Interval Mode A is selected, Interval appears together with the letter A and Interval Mode B is indicated by Interval and the letter B.


The interval Modes, allow you to take photographs one after the other at a selected interval, which can be set in increments of one second to any value from two minutes to twenty-four hours. Interval modes are only available when the camera is in recording mode and cannot be used when the camera is in playback mode.

Setting the Interval

1. Setting the camera to recording mode and the remote cord to Interval Mode A or B, the interval setting will be shown in the remote cord LCD display. Items currently selected for editing will flash. Each time the selection (SEL.) button is pressed, the item selected will change as shown below.


Select the desired time by altering the settings (second [S], minute [M], or hour [H]) one at a time. While the item is flashing, press the down button to decrease the time set, or the up button to increase the time set. The value displayed will change by one each time either button is pressed.

2. After adjusting settings, press the selection button until the display is no longer flashing.

Starting Interval Mode Photography

• Half-pressing the remote shutter-release button has the same effect as half-pressing the shutter-release button on the camera, readying the camera to take a photograph. If the interval is set to less than two minutes when the shutter-release button is half-pressed, the interval display will flash. Choose an interval of two minutes or more.

• Full-pressing the remote shutter-release button has the same effect as full-pressing the shutter-release button on the camera, starting interval mode photography.

• When the camera enters interval mode, it will either take a picture and then begin the count to the next photograph (Interval Mode A), or begin the count to the first photograph (Interval Mode B). The Interval indicator in the LCD display will flash while interval mode is in effect.

Ending Interval Mode Photography

• Half-pressing the remote cord shutter-release button while an interval mode is in progress stops the interval photography.

• Photography will also stop should you run out of available space on the compact flash card; In this case, the number of exposures remaining displayed in the LCD panel will be 000.



The MC-EU1 has a feature that when the zoom button is pressed twice in rapid succesion, the camera will start zooming until this function is cancelled by pushing the button a third time. If this function is not cancelled, no other function is possible with the MC-EU1. If the MC-EU1 does not respond as expected please ensure you have not activated the zoom function.

My E990 has a bad on/off


Being practical, it sounds like it is time for a new digital camera as the cost for repairing your 990 would not be worth it. I saw a used one going for $65 on AMAZON A repair would probably be double that cost.

Some amazing advances in digital photography have become available since your Coolpix 990 was introduced. I can't think of a better time to be looking for a digital camera with all the "Black Friday" deals about to be revealed. Since you are a Nikon user, may I suggest the Nikon D40. I do own this camera and it works very well, and won't break the bank too much Plus you can purchase extra lenses to make it a better camera when you can afford to.

I hope this helped and Good Luck!
