Recharge your battery is the first thing i would do.. once this is done, try reinstalling the firmware and that should take care of the problem.. is your camera new?

good luck and let me know if i can help anymore..

RESET ALL Button


I'm convinced you already did read the user manual. There are three things you can reset:
1. User settings. In menu mode P, you can undo all the settings you made. Page 69.
2. Reset all settings. Page 151 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset all. All settings will be restored to factory settings.
3. Reset file numbering. Page 154 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset file numbering.
In the same menu is also the view firmware version. Yours should read Coolpix P90 Ver.X.X .
The latest update of firmware for the P90 is 1.1 Great chance your camera came with that revision already. If you registered your camera with Nikon, they will inform you when a new firmware is released.
Really, there is nothing more you can reset on the camera.
So if something is wrong, it can't be helped with the reset you have in mind, because that reset does not exist.
If you want the firmware 1.1, goto Nikon USA and support. Everything you want is there.

Nikon coolpix 3100 updating


If you're referring to updating the firmware, the current version is 1.3 and is available from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783
There are no other user-upgradable portions of the camera.

The movies are grainy because the camera has a small and old sensor, very susceptible to noise. I think you'll find the results a little better in well-lit situations, but please do not confuse the Coolpix with a camcorder.

Bear in mind that the 3100 is a relatively ancient camera. It may be time to consider replacing it with a more modern camera.

Fuzzy grainy screen on nikon coolpix camera


Did you see if it is in manual focus mode? Try to switch to auto in the menu, or do a complete reset in the menu. Who knows what the last person was doing when you last used it, hehe

Can't select Continuous nor BSS in Set-up for User 1,2, or 3


I had the same problem and just figured it out. Firstly, BSS won't work if NR is set to on. Turn it off and that should work.

Secondly, Continuous mode can not be shot in the RAW or HI image settings. Set the camera to one of the lower settings and give that a try. If that doesn't work, follow the instructions for updating to the latest firmware here:

http://support.nikontech.com/cgi-bin/nikonusa.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=685&p_sid=seR*HFnj&p_lva=13783&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NjIwLDYyMCZwX3Byb2RzPTEmcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PTEuMSZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX25sJnBfcGFnZT0x&p_li=

That did the trick for me. I believe the problem has to do with the new memory card I started using. Good luck.

Nikon coolpix 5700 shows no memory left after purchasing a new card & batteries


The largest CompactFlash card that Nikon approved for the 5700 is 256MB, which is what I'm using in my 5700. That's small by today's standards and you probably won't even find it in stores. I see some web sellers have 256MB cards for only $6 or so. Other commercial card sellers on the web claim that the 5700 will handle CF cards up to 1GB capacity. That's what I might try since online they're selling for as little as $8 plus shipping. Given that the 5700 was introduced in 2002, any cards bigger than 1GB probably won't work.

Try the menus, if they work, possible that the ccd is bad.

Auto-focus isn't working


Try checking your settings for the type of shot you are taking and for the type of focus......
type of shot is the dial on the top, and then:
1) menu, metering
and also check your autofocus mode
2)menu, autofocus; try the single autofocus, it might be set to continual

Also, you could try updating the firmware in your camera. You do this through the Nikon website.
