No, but it can be replaced. If you want to do the repair yourself, you can order the part here. Otherwise, take it to a reputable repair shop and have a trained professional do it.

SOURCE: 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.

There are two ways

1. Upload ALL of your photos to your computer (best if you do this)
2. Buy a new memory card if you don't want to upload the pics to your computer. But keep the memory card safe

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix S210 lcd broken - need step by step instructions

Most cameras are not that hard, if you are careful and willing to make notes of where each screw came from.
Be sure to get the correct screwdriver to fit the screws correctly and use enough pressure directly to loosen each screw...this is quite important, because if you strip the screw's head, it can be messy.
Most LCD screens are directly under the back cover, and can be replaced usually, once the back is off, remove three or four screw which will hold the LCD frame on. Once that is loosened, then you can carefully remove the screen and see if you need to remove anything else before loosening the cable plug. Take care here, because there are a few different ways these cables may be connected. Some are simply pushed into a connector. Some have a socket which has locks which must be loosened to remove the cable. These little sliding plug connectors are delicate, so you must take it slow and not rush the job. Some of these fold up to loosen, some simply slide away a bit to loosen the plug lock.
Most anyone who has done any delicate work on anything electronic will understand what I am talking about here.
A repair manual may be able to be downloaded for free, but you may have to be a member (usually free) in order to download manuals. Some may charge a small fee for the pdf file.
Hope it all works okay.

Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera

This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include “E18 lens error”, or “lens error, restart camera”. Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. Believe it or not, one BIG contributor to lens errors is using a camera case. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials love to cling to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the case (especially those cases with soft fibrous intreriors). Once these materials work their way into the lens mechanism, that's all she wrote. I have many Canon's, and NEVER use a case for this very reason.
A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired. Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The quoted repair cost is usually close to or more than what the camera is actually worth.
Fortunately, about half the cameras that suffer this failure can easily be fixed by one of the following methods. None of these methods involve opening the camera, although some have potential to cause other damage to the camera if excessively done. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.
The methods are listed in the order of risk of damaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and 7) should only be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost of repair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered for disposal if unrepaired:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.
Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.
Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.

Coolpix p5000 viewfinder does not react to zoom


So from what I read her I think you can't use the viewfinder. It was the reason why I bought a powershot G9, a viewfinder. But on my camera, the viewfinder can't be used anymore, because of a mechanical problem. While zooming, what you see through the viewfinder stays the same. I don't think of giving the camera to a repair shop, because the camera still makes perfect pictures. And yes I would love the view finder to work like it used to be, but I leave it.
If your camera is still in warranty time, please contact a Nikon certified service centre immediately. If you have to pay for it, think twice and start saving for a new camera, if you still can make pictures.

Dust inside screen of Nikon Coolpix S51c


You won't be able to get it cleaned with canned air. The dust that developed is underneath the screen. I recommend sending it to Nikon or the camera doctor.

He can clean it for you cheaper and faster than Nikon could do it.
