My pictures are blury and I am tired of it.


First make sure you're on Auto mode (press SCENE and choose AUTO mode)
Use permanent flash by pressing UP until the flash logo gets selected, then press OK.
Also, if you don't want to use the flash, put the flash on AUTO and press menu, go to "Set up", scroll to "Anti-shake AE" and set it to "Auto", press OK to save settings and try taking pictures again.

Red hand appears when i switch on my camera


It sounds like the camera shake/blur warning.

You might have the camera set to an inappropriate 'scene' mode. If you are using 'landscape' or 'snow' for an indoor or night shot for example, the camera will select a slow shutter speed which will increase the chance of blur - hence the warning.

If you keep the selector switch all the way to the left (auto mode) you should be fine in most situations. Only use the 'scene' modes for specific purposes.

Nikon CoolPix Flash Problem


This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.
