Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera

Nikon Coolpix L11

This is driving me crazy!!! My flash will not work at ALL. Not once. I went through every setting imagineable and I cannot find a reason why it won't work. Pressing it half down, I see the green through the screen and the flash indicator light is a solid red (which I am assuming means that the flash will work) but when I take the picture. Nothing.

    Yes, I am making sure that the flash isn't off. When I hold the button half way down, the flash indicator light comes on, and on the screen it shows "AF" with a green dot... I cannot find anything on the internet about this.....



    By the way, thank you.

Hi,

I had the same problem with the Nikon 3200 Coolpix, the flash only worked with certain mode, as scene mode. I solved the problem doing a RESET ALL that is in SET UP menu.

Hey rayray21,
I am assuming you did this, but I have to say make sure the flash is not turned off which would be indicated by a lightening bolt symbol crossed out. The flash is always off if the camera is set to certain modes such as landscape assist, sports assist, movie, or to certain scene modes such as sunset, night landscape, museum, fireworks show, or dusk/dawn. Make sure the camera is not set to one of these modes. If none of this helps I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Picture project


Hit MENU on your camera, go to the setup menu and select USB and then make sure it's set to "Mass Storage" and not "PTP". Once you have done that you shouldn't need any drivers. The camera on this setting will essentially mount as a USB thumb drive.

Hope this helps and remember to vote. :)

Help flash Nixon coolpix L11


hello,

make sure when you press the round selection button on the back of the camera flash option, you press the ok in the center of the button on the back.

it will show brief yellow AUTO in the LCD screen upper right corner for a sec.

when you are going to take a picture holding the shutter button half way down, you should see up at the right corner outside of the LCD screen a red led flashing to indicate flash is ready.

one thing to try if this is not working, find the camera reset option in the menu. after doing this you may have to reset the date & time. it will bring the camera back to default settings

on the bad side if these dont work, possible flash circuit may have failed inside the camera.

good luck!

Nikon Coolpix L11 - LCD screen shows double image


It could be a loose LCD connection carefully take off the back and lift the LCD very carfully you will see the ribbon cable lift the tab take out the LCD and reinsert it and push the tab back down. If this does not fix it you might have a damaged main board its one or the other.
