Re: nikon viewer

Yes, you can download it from the Nikon website. In the UK, you need to go to the customer services section, create and account or log in, the select your camera model, and then click the software tab. Nikon View 6.2.7 Full Version is in the list. I would imagine that the procedure is similar for other nikon worldwide sites, though I don't know if you need to log in at all of them.

Alternatively, you can go into the camera setup menu, and change the USB mode from PTP to Mass Storage (I think you can do this on the 3100). Then you can use windows to simply copy the pictures over.

Alternatively, use a card reader.

How to connect Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera with my pc

Do you REALLY want to connect your camera to your computer?

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

Nikon discontinued the S50c years ago. You may be able to find used one but you're very unlikely to find any new ones.

Nikon Coolpix 2100/3100/3200 battery compartment door latch broken (again)

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.

LCD blank & No picture taken

This appears to be a well known CCD problem, which Nikon acknowledges only for the COOLPIX 3100, 5700 and SQ models. Nikon denies the CCD problems on the 5400 are related, even though a Google search for this problem returns numerous results which claim the same defective Sony CCD sensor was used in the 5400 as was used in the 3100, 5700, and SQ models.
