I had the same problem,and it disappeared when i reset the time and date. Move your dialtosetup, scroll your menu to date,toggle open that menu set it and see if the blinking stops. Good Luck.

When trying to take a pic, a red camera symbol with two curve at both sides at the bottom of the camera symbol appears...this comes up in bottom left hand corner. Please help. Thank you, Robin


Sounds like the warning of low shutter speed end therefore the tanger to get "hanshake" blur captured. Use flash if possible or highter ISO setting or steady hands ;)

What is the meaning of symbols on Nikon Coolpix L120


All of the symbols are described and explained in the manual. If you need a copy of the manual, you may download one here.
If you're referring to a red flashing clock, that indicates that you need to set the date and time.

Red flashing lite in viewer looks like a timer but timer is off what is this symbol for and how do I get rid of it? Nikon s630


It's telling you that the clock needs to be set. Go into the setup menu and set the date and time. If the problem persists then the clock battery needs to be replaced.

When I turn my camera on there is a red flashing clock symbol that there is no mention of in the manual. What is this, and how do I make it stop?


Actually, it is covered in the manual. It is telling you to set the date and time. Go to page 129 for the procedure.

Blurred pictures, and Red hand Flashing warning


The red hand is warning you that the shutter speed is too slow for handholding. Your pictures are coming out blurred because the camera is moving during the relatively lengthy exposure.

Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.

No good pictures


The symbols you are seeing are the blur warning indicators.

The yellow hand warns you that the picture may not be quite sharp enough for a standard 6" x 4" print - however you may be happy with it.

The red hand warns you that the picture is most likely to be poor quality, and won't produce a good 6" x 4" printed photo.

The reason you're getting these indoors, is that there's not enough light for the camera to take a good picture. As it tries to do so, it opens the shutter for longer to let more light in - however on doing so, if the camera isn't absolutely still, then the warning symbols will come on.

To remedy the above I'd have the following suggestion - if possible and practical, when shooting indoors, try and rest the camera on something solid when taking a photo. If this is not possible - try leaning against a wall to stabilise yourself. Even though you think you are holding the camera still - it's moving quite a lot.

Try one hand held photo - and one photo with the camera resting on something solid like a table and see what the difference is.
