Question about Nikon D3100 Digital Camera

My nikon d3100 takes a long time to process my sd card card and after that it displays a "card damaged" error. So I decided to buy a new sd card, but still gets the same error message. I got it checked at a "fix all electronic shop" and suggests to replace mother board. But I guess its not the system that got crashed but just the card slot pin, I guess, because there was one time that I ejected it, there;s

I had the same problem and thought I had looked closely at the pins in CF slot but after finally taking it to a repair shop, the tech showed me a bent pin. It really wasn't that apparent first time around. He told me its a common problem as long as they use the CF cards. I had the pins replaced and my D100 is working great. Best of luck.

This may be due to the aperture ring in your lens. Try the following:

1. Turn off your camera
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise then lock
3. Turn on your camera and try again.

If this does not work, do the same thing again but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise.

SOURCE: Replacing the SD card slot door cover Nikon

Hi Sasha - New Nikon repair parts are not available in the marketplace. You'll find repair parts that are offered for sale are used. The used products may be very good - and in some cases practically new - but you'll never know for sure. A battery door and other non-electronic parts should be pretty easy to determine if they have been abused or damaged upon arrival. Electronic parts are going to be a crapshoot.

I was quoted $270 to replace a sensor in my old D70 last year. I found one on eBay for $55. I have no idea how many times the sensor was used, but fortunately it seems to work fine. The work to replace it was tedious and required a very steady hand and some small specialty tools. Replacing the battery door will probably be nowhere near as involved - but I don't know your level of ability, either. You should ask anyone that is selling this part for written instructions or a link to instructions or video that details the replacement process. Read or watch the directions and determine if it is in your skill set. If not, you'll never go wrong sending the camera to Nikon for repair. It will only cost you a bit more - but it will be done right and your camera will not incur additional damage during dis-assembly and reassembly.

I hope this helped and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

How can i turn on my Nikon D3100?


Is the battery fully charged. What were you doing on it right before you shut it down. Also make sure your putting the battery i. The right way



Also you can\'t charge the battery by usb into a computer. You need to use the external wall charger.



Unfortunatly the d3100 does not contain am external reset button like the Nikon D3000 but this might help. Take out the sd card and battery and leave it out for a couple hours then, after a couple hours have past reinsert the Battery without the SD card. If it still doesn\'t work shine a flashlight into the battery holder to see if any of the metal connectors are bent.



The only logical explanation after that if it still doesn\'t work is that the battery died doesn\'t have to look damaged it can crap out anytime. I would try getting a new battery and putting it in. If you just got the camera you could tell the place you got it at and they should give you a new battery.



i hope I could help, your going to have to trial and error this one to see what gets it to work.

If a pin got damaged, then a trip back to a Nikon repair center is the only way to properly repair it. It may be still under warranty if it's less than 3 years old.

I just got my Nikon D3100 and it wont turn on..why?? i didnt buy a memory card yet..doest it need memory card to turn on??


The battery ships in an uncharged state. Slip the battery into the charger until the it indicates it is fully charged. Install into the camera. The camera should power up without an SD/SDHC/SDXC type memory card installed - and should flash [-E-] in the viewfinder alerting you to the fact that no memory card is inserted.

D3100. USB cable will only transfer about half the quantiy of files to the PC and ignores any video files. Whereas when I transfer files through the SD card slot (not using the cable) all is well. Why?


My first impression is the transfer rate of the card through the camera firmware is not fast enough. You said SD card an SD card is a much slower rate then an SDHC which is much better for video. I use SD memory cards for still photography SDHC for any video. You can use SDHC for stills as well but it just my way of keeping things separated. Another thing is you should (must) format the memory cards each time you download, install them in another camera or a new SD SDHC card is installed . As a rule of thumb format the card in the camera it's going to be used in.

I want to know about different types of memory cards available for Nikon D3100


The D3100 takes SD and SDHC cards. Physically they're identical, but SD cards are limited to 2GB in size. SDHC cards range from 4GB to 32GB in size. They come in different speeds but if you're just taking snapshots the speed won't matter. If you shoot a lot of video, or shoot in RAW, then you might want to get class 4 or faster SDHC cards. Otherwise just stick to the major brands and go with price.
