Question about Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera
MY nikon coolpix 3100 camera turns off as soon as i turn it on even afer i just put fresh batteries in it. It will let you enter the library where you store you pictures and the set up menu only.
Does anyone know how to fix it?
Okay, now I'm gonna bring life to this discussion again...
I have the exact same problem: When I turn the Nikon Coolpix 3100 on it just turns off immediately. I use two AA-batteries. I've tried to change them several times but it makes no difference.
What should I do to fix this problem?
I would really appreciate some help with this because on Monday I'm going on a one week camping-trip with some friends, and it would be nice if I could take some pictures then...
Regards, Rebecca (Sweden)

I was having this exact problem until someone pointed out to me that the camera's CRV3 batteries can be replaced with simple double A's. I'm sure the manual says this but I must have overlooked it. Anyway, the problem seems to be fixed. The camera works as if new!! I haven't tested it for any long period yet but the regular day to day photography that I have done gives me hope that the problem has been solved.

I read your post because my Nikon Coolpix 3100 had the same problem last week. Despite being in perfect condition, it turned on and off immediately afterwards. It did it for several days (I was a bit slow to get on the internet! ;o) and today I left it in the sun... and it seems to work!
Not sure what happened, maybe in my case it might have been some condensation because I took it out on a cold day, but I will keep it monitored.
It still seems to "eat" batteries, though...

You may be experiencing a common problem with some early Mfg 3100s.
There is a firmware update you can get from the manufacturer which will greatly improve battery function on the early 3100s.
