Hey flakey61,
One thing you can try is removing the batteries, and according to the manufacturer if you leave them out for three days or more and then reinsert fully charged batteries the camera should reset to the default settings and this might resolve your problem. If that doesn't help this camera is most likely still covered under manufacturer warranty, and you could call the manufacturer and set up service on the camera. You can also bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out under manufacturers warranty to get serviced. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I left my nikon D3100 outside with the tripod and i forgot to get it,then suddenly it got wet from the rain,what will i do?


Remove the battery imediately, the memory card and the lens. Place the camera body, lens and memory card in a warm dry and place for several days to dry out completely.
When the camers is dry, insert the battery, lens and memory card, turn on the camers and set the date and time.
If the camers does not work charge the battery and try again.
If it still does not work then you need to send it to the Nikon service centre for repair.

Make like Michael Jackson and Beat it!

A bit of tiny grit can catch and stop the lens mechanism. Tapping the camera on the body or thumping it somewhat firmly & delicatelyonto a padded flat urface may help. Run a vacuum near the len and cycle it a few times after it works.
Beating these cameras is a strangely common technique.

Lens won't come out


Replace with new batteries. If that doesnt solve the problem then it may be time for new camera. Cheaper to replace than try to fix.
