Nikon Coolpix L4

My Nikon camera is giving me a red blinking hand all the time when it is on. The manual says to turn on the BSS, use a tripod or the self-timer. I have tried all these methods and I still get blurry pictures frequently. Do you have any suggestions?

Nikon Coolpix S32 watreproof camera doesn't focusing properly


You have to know if the FOCUS is the issue or SHUTTER SPEED. In most cases with most CoolPix Cameras if the Image is not in focus (When you push shutter down HALFWAY) the Focus Rectangle will not be GREEN... If it RED it cannot focus. If every time you take a photo the focus area is red then it is not focusing. Small Coolpix cameras have difficulty focusing in low light.

Low light can make a hand held image look blurry because of hand shake. If the light is so low it wants to take a long exposure. This works with a tripod, but not with a hand held photo. With most of these small cameras you can take 1 second night photos with a tripod. They would look horrible handheld.

Typically on the Coolpix cameras you can set the FOCUS mode. It is usually shown with a FLOWER for MACRO... You get AF / FLOWER / MOUNTAIN / MANUAL (may not have this)

Plase make sure your FOCUS MODE is in AF AF is the ONLY Mode where the camera will focus CLOSE and FAR... Light is not your problem..... It seems it is your FOCUS MODE.

Red hand blinking


This probably indicates that the selected shutter speed is too slow for hand-holding, and any images may suffer from camera shake. You can increase the shutter speed (maybe by selecting a higher ISO setting), use a support (a monopod or a tripod), or use flash.

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.

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

Red blinking clock on nikon coolpix L4


The clock isn't set OR it's been a while since you used the cmaer OR you let it sit on low charged/dead battery for too long. Either way, update the date and time and it should go away.
