Question about Nikon D3100 Digital Camera
I've been using my D3100 problem free for over a year now, but all of the sudden the buttons next to the view screen are all frozen, and I can't use them. While taking pictures I can't review, access my menu or anything else. I love this camera and don't have money to replace it! How do I fix it?
The very first thing I would do is turn off the camera and take out the battery. While the battery is out, go ahead and recharge it. This may not be the issue, but it forces you to keep the battery out of the camera for an hour. After an hour replace the battery back into the camera and turn it on. See that the battery indicator is showing that you have a full charge. Check to see if the controls are working...Let me know.

Had this problem two weeks ago. On the road to recovery, changing the purpose of the function button seems to have helped me - <Menu>, <Set-up1>, <Controls>, <Func.> Change chosen option away from the top one (User Setting). I found the third one down with the flash symbol least confusing. Then <Set> and <Menu> button to escape from the menus.
Having done all this the camera will take pictures again without pressing the lock button. However, I'm not convinced the func. button works as described in the manual. Hope this helps?

SOURCE: D50 won't take a picture!
I was having the same problem.. And since I could not afford to take it to the shop, I tried everything I could think of...
Then I fixed it!!
It seems that the slide door behind the shutter was stuck for some reason... If you remove the lens.. (make sure the camera is in manual mode)... snap a shot so the shutter is up.. then gently slide the panel in the back down....
Once I did that.. the camera was working again.... Hope this easy solution works for you guys....

SOURCE: lens error nikon coolpix 4300
This error occurs if camera is turned on before lens cap is removed. If you are removing the lens cap before turning the camera on and still getting this message, camera should be serviced by a qualified technician.
