Question about Nikon D3100 Digital Camera
Don't think anything can be done.....think Ive been well and truly ripped off.
Hi Andrew - There are several hacked firmware files for this camera. Most that I have seen deal with allowing 3rd party battery usage, 17 minute video, unlimited video and variable shutter and aperture control during video recording. There may be others. I suggest you either (a) contact eBay and open a dispute resolution ticket to return the camera to get your money back or (b) try installing an authentic Nikon 3100 firmware from & as per instructions on the site:
Understand that option (a) is preferential. If for some reason you can not do (a) then (b) would be the next step. Any time firmware is updated, there is a risk of damaging the hardware. This is especially true if power is removed during the process - but other things can happen, too. Finally, if (b) doesn't work for you then you may have to hack the firmware as shown in the link below (or your choice of hacks):

*THIS ALSO WORKS ON NIKON D5100*
Finally after 4 years we have a hacked/custom firmware that enable full manual video control on the Nikon D3100 DSLR. Just like the D3200 or Canon 5D, 7D ect. you can simple adjust the shutter speed/angle and the ISO sensitivity of video as well as the usual aperture control. You can even adjust shutter speed while recording!

No, I don't think so, there could be differences between the Auto and the P setting. But the red flashing is where your camera is currently focusing on. It's possible that the black was indicating the focus box, but it was not latched on to something with complete focus, which then is indicated by the red flashing. Check this link to read up further on this. I may not have pinpointed it exactly, because I have a D70s, but that's what I found so far. You'll maybe have to reset everything and see if it's still there, otherwise, it's a setting. =)

This has happened to mine a couple of times. I cannot select flash, and the blur indicator is on most of the time.
Solution is to go into 'menu', select 'SET UP' then 'reset all'. My flash selection then works again.
Since one doesn't tend to set much up with a basic camera like this, resetting shouldn't cause any issues.
Hope this helps

So far as I am aware, the 5400 will support only up to 2GB cards. As to the firmware upgrade you mention, I don't recall that that has any bearing on the max. card capacity; but it's worth doing for the RAW format support (for me, at least). Cheers and good shooting. Davo, Tas.

1.Check if something block it (maybe sand or smt like that
2. Never pushed lens manualy (you may broke it completly)
3.Just try to shake or slap it jently while open or close it.
