Question about Nikon D3100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi Just been ripped off on ebay, don't know if anyone can help? Bought a firmware upgraded d3100 which apparently was done to give an improved bit rate.

The viewfinder is black and the flash doesn't work. The seller obviously knew this and ripped me off. Is there any way to get rid of the firmware hack?

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:

https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/18725

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!

Unlock codes for nokia e71


Nokia staff don't give answers here in the forum but for sure they are reading all our posts as I made a typographical error yesterday with apparently a third party application (instead of typing "NSU"- i typed something else) that can apparently debrand your phone - which I don't know of anyway.

Again abour 5 minutes ago, my answer to somenoe's thread have been deleted as I mentioned about "screws" on the back of the phone.

This forum "to me" is most pathetic forum where you post problems, and nokia support don't give help, and they delete answers that might help other users.

It seems to me they are only using us a guinea pigs to test their phones and their firmware/software. If nokia can't afford to pay testers, they should stop manufacturing **bleep** phones, or stop selling them.

Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!

Unfortunately, I would either have to be in the chat mode or on the telephone with you to fully analyze your problem and provide a coherent answer. But don't despair because there is a little FREE program that may solve your problem.

It happens periodically that our computer shuts down, restarts, hibernates or some other weird thing when we really don't want it to. I'm going to pass on to you a FREE and hard to believe program from Microsoft! I have no idea why this little program hasn't been advertised but then I don't own their stock.

Just click on the following link and your problem should be solved: Download Microsoft's Fixit

I don't know your skill level so my suggestion is that you utilize the automatic function of Fixit.

Be a hero and fix your friends' computers; just don't tell them how you did it! That will be our little secret.

All the best,

Ben

Step I: Download the latest version of Samsung Kies from official site of Samsung Kies. The latest version of Kies is: Kies_2.0.0.11044.

OR

You can download it from here: Samsung Kies Download Link

Step II: Open Samsung Kies and connect your Samsung Wave with PC (Wait for driver installation, if you have attached your phone for the first time with your pc)

As soon as Kies will detect your phone it will offer a prompt of new firmware update available, see the screenshot below


Firmware upgrade prompt

Click on UPDATE button

Step III: Now you will face a window of 'Agree to the Terms and Conditions." You can choose the option of save and don't save the information. This option is that, Samsung will store your information of IP and hardware specifications on their servers for 2 years. It is totally dependent on you, which you want to choose.

We would like to recommended you to choose "Allow saving"


Upgrade Terms & Conditions

Hit START UPGRADE button

Step IV: It is strongly recommended not to disconnect your phone from PC until the upgrading process is complete. So take care of it.

Within few minutes (depends upon the speed of your internet connection). Upgrading process will move on and will complete successfully.


Upgrade in Progress

Note: Don't use any options on your phone, while the upgrading process is taking place, your phone will be restarted. DON'T PANIC!

Your phone will come to working state automatically and your Samsung Wave is successfully upgraded to Bada 1.2

I have just bought a Nikon D3100 but haven't taken a photo yet as I can't get rid of the info display. i either have info display or a black screen.


Hi, With DSLR's you're supposed to look through the view finder to take a picture however if you'd like to use live view on the LCD you need to turn live view on. If you look on the back of your camera there's a toggle around the red record button, you switch it and it'll turn live view on. If you need anymore help feel free to contact me and I can give you a hand =)

My touchscreen not work what's problem.& solution set is samsung star gt s5233s i use internet very much


This can either be a problem with firmware or hardware. If this happened after you upgraded or flashed the firmware then it probably because you used the wrong firmware. If you haven't done any updates then this is most likely a hardware. If it's the later then you need to buy and replace new touch screen from stores like ebay. Mostly comes with instruction, so should be fairly easy to fit.
