The solution for my issue referred to a Service advisory issued by Nikon but my camera isn't listed. I plan to go to a local Wolf Camera to see if they know if this one is covered.

This camera displays an error that reads: PROTEC. ESCR


Hi,

Some memory cards have a Write Protection switch on them.
To check this please remove the Memory card from the camera. Check if there is a "lock" switch on the left side.
Slide this switch to the "Unlocked" position, and reinsert the card into the camera.

This should resolve the issue and the error should go away.

In case the issue persists, it could mean the the write protect on this card was perhaps set by mistake while it was connected to the computer.

You will need to use the computer to cancel the read-only setting.
Please connect the card to your computer through the camera or a card reader and cancel the write protect on the card.

This will resolve the issue you are facing.
If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

Captured photos have horizontal lines on them but doesnt appear while capturing


A multicolor horizontal line may display on the camera LCD screen if there is glare on the subject being photographed. Avoid photographing very shiny surfaces that reflect excessive amount of light into the camera lens.
Follow each step below until the issue is resolved:
  1. Change the position of the camera by shooting at a different angle.
  2. Shoot in an environment with different lighting.
  3. Adjust the zoom level.
  4. If the issue still occurs, try resetting the Camera back to factory settings.
To reset the Camera, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK. (Menu-->Setup-->Setup 1-->Initialize-->OK)

If the issue persists, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. Please make sure that you turn ON the Camera before you reset it.

The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required.

Black screen


This seems to be an issue with the CCD Image Sensor failure in the Camera. If you're able to view the previously captured images and display icons on the Camera, then the issue is with the CCD.
Try resetting the Camera to resolve the issue.
The RESET button is located inside the Battery / Memory Stick cover. To reset the camera, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.
Please make sure that you turn ON the Camera before you reset it.

If the issue is not resolved, then remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally.

If the issue persists, service may be required.

My camera says that there is a card read error and to insert a memory card why does this happen when i have a memory card in it?


This may happen if the Memory Stick is formatted in the Computer.

You may try formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera itself by using the FORMAT option in it.
If the issue persists even after formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera, then check whether a different Memory Stick works in the Camera.
If the other one works in your Camera then it must be the issue with the previous Memory Stick.

If the Camera does not work with a new Memory Stick, then you may try initializing it to check whether it resolves the issue.

Initialize option can be found in Menu items in the Camera.

If that does not resolve the issue, you may try removing the battery of the Camera for atleast one minute.
This should resolve the issue.
