Question about Digital Cameras

Where's the reset button

My camera won't take pictures. According to the product website, manually resetting the camera may help, but I can't find out how to do that and the guides that came with the camera don't tell me where to find it. How can manually reset the camera?

    Lens is stuck in open position - no image on screen. Won't take pictures. Put in fresh batteries, still nothing.

    Photos are too overexposed, or they are blurry.

Reset button on the camera

  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Initialize or Reset option(s) in the camera menus
  • The menu layout is different between cameras so check the operating instructions.
  • In general, there will be a Reset or Initialize section within the menus of the camera.
  • Some cameras allow for resetting or initializing different options such as wireless settings, the settings used in taking the last picture, or all settings. Be sure to look at all available options in the product manual.
Manual reset process

Cameras manufactured prior to the year 2000 do not have reset buttons or options in the menus. Follow the steps below to reset:

    1. Turn off the camera.
    2. Remove the battery pack.
    3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
    4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
    5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
    6. Reinsert the battery pack.
    7. Turn on the camera.

NOTE: If your camera is experiencing an issue and it is not resolved by performing the appropriate reset or initialize procedure above, service may be required.

My screen shows lines and when I take a picture


Please reset the Camera and check if that helps.

To reset the Camera, just press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. The Reset button is located inside the jack cover. Please make sure that the Camera is turned ON while pressing the RESET button.

If the issue still persists, power reset the Camera and check if that helps.

To power reset the Camera, please remove the Battery Pack from the Camera and then press the POWER button for 15 seconds.

Then, reinsert the Battery Pack after 1 minute, then turn ON and check if that helps.

Thank You!

Err is blinking in top left corner


According to the Nikon Support Webpage:

When you see Err on the control panel, LCD monitor or viewfinder of your digital camera it refers to a camera malfunction. Try the following:
  1. Remove all accessories from the camera.
  2. Install a freshly charged battery into the camera.
  3. If your Nikon camera offers resets such as the two-button reset or a hardware reset please follow those instructions provided in the product manual.
If these steps do not resolve the Err message we recommend having a Nikon Authorized Repair Technician evaluate the Nikon camera. Click here for repair information.
