Wet cool pix camera

If your camera cant start due to the wet camera, try using these solutions:
  1. Leave your camera near a warm heat source to let the water evaporate. Do not put it near a hot heat source as it may fry the internals of the camera.
  2. If the above does not work, put your camera in a container and fill it with rice. (take out the battery and allow the rice to go in. Leave it for a few days.
  3. If none of these work, send your camera to a authorized Nikon servicer.

Dropped the camera in a toilet - takes pix with "lines" - can we do anything

If you tried to turn it on while any water was still in it, you probably already fried the circuits.

Lens error on nikon p5100

Lens errors are fairly common. 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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

I have a nikon cool pix camera that doesn't turn on

When there is nothing happening, it is hard to understand what is wrong.
Do the menus cone on or anything turn on?
If the camera comes on at all, then try setting all the menus to default.
If nothing comes on, no lights, nothing, then you are stuck.

If it will not turn on at all, I would recommend selling it at a site such as Ebay for repair parts, as is. At least you can get some money back, and buy another camera.

Also you may want to consider to call Nikon and trade-in or trade-up your camera for a re-furbished unit (a re-furbished unit will have everything just as it came from the factory. The support-repair department would be the place to get the number and information.

The LCD of my Nikon P5100 can not display

You probably have a lose connection on your LCD. Mine was the same. I initially sent it off for repair and it worked fine for about 6 months or so but then started playing up again. Today I took it apart myself to recheck all the connections. I took a series of set-by-step images and once I have sorted them out and written up the instructions I will post it so you can have a go at fixing yours.
