Question about Cameras
Not sure what Coolpix you have, I assume one young one. Not knowing how you did set up the camera, I even have to guess more.
I start with a questions, and I hope when you try to answer this, you will take the camera in your hands. You even could look into the manual if you have it, or pick up the manual on Nikon USA.
Did you put your camera in any other mode then the automatic mode?
When the dial is on the green camera logo, you should be fine. If not, try to switch to automatic and take a picture.
Be aware if you put the camera on a tripod, you should switch off the image stabilisation, because the camera is fixed and nay correction, will cause blurr.
You also should look if the front of the lens is clean. Don't start rubbing the front element, only use the correct lens cleaning cloth or lens pen. Never use a paper towel or any fluid, that is not special made to clean a lens. The coating of every lens is essential for its sharpness and for correct colour. With a little alcohol you ruin every lens, because it could resolve the coating. Please, if you still have problems, tell me what model coolpix you use and does not what you want.

I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.
Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.

I'm currently having the same problem. :[
You might want to check and make sure your lens in on the "A" setting and not "M". This can be found on the side of your lens.
