Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life at the store, and though brand new and right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 3100 and when I turn it on the flash indicator light and the light next to AF flash. Nothing else happens. I've put in new batteries and it still isn't working.


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.

Low Battery when not


If you are using alkalines, this will always happen. You need to use rechargeables, or special high current disposables, eg "Oxyride".

A good solution for this camera is to use a single CRV-3 disposable lithium batteries. The battery life is long and they are light weight too.

Camera Keeps shutting off


Have you changed the battery/batteries for another brand? I'm wondering if various brands react differently to extreme temperatures? Probably not the problem with your camera, just thought it might be worth a try!

Nikon Coolpix 775 autos off within 10 seconds


This is either due to one of two problems.

I will start with the simple 1 first.

Go to the menu settings, and select the "S" page, at the bottom is selection for AutoOff, check the settings for this. I would suggest 1 min being about average for most users.

Come out of the menu settings, and leave the camera for 1 min it should auto power down in about that time give or take a few seconds.

If this works then that is the problem solved.

The more complex issue is, that if you camera still is affected by short auto shut downs, then you need to buy a new battery. I paid about £5 for one of ebay, so they are available.

Hope this helps

Coolpix 8800 shuts down


Make sure to use good NiMH batteries. Another possiblity is a problem with the card. Borrow a card and see if it has any effect. check to see that the pins in the card slot are all aligned, none out of place. check that the card door and the battery door close firmly, with some pressure. The camera can shut down when it has a problem detecting that the doors are closed. When it does turn on, play with the zoom without taking pictures, zoom in and out, if during zoom the camera shuts down then you might have a lens problem, something is malfunctioning in the lens mechanism and the camera shuts down to prevent damage. Good luck
