    My problem is the same or similar. When I half-hold the photo snap button the AF kicks in and works without any problems but when I completely press the button the picture is never taken (regardless of whether AF flashes red or green).


    Same results in other picture taking modes and in video mode.

    According to the manal the camera cannot focus when the AF is red. Page 80 of the user manual give you options on how to change the AF area mode.



    Page 22 tells you how to focus it.



    If you need a manual, check out this link:

    If that doesn't do it, You might want to take into a camera shop and see if the AF sensor is working.

"Lens Error" message in Nikon Coolpix L5


There are a few different things it could be though most likely the lens itself is out of alignment. There are methods you can try to "click" it back into place. First off how long have you owned the camera?
Thanks,
Lee

Well a few years ago I purchased a Nikon Coolpix 4600 4MP Digital Camera and everytime I try to take a picture the AF light flashes red. Why is that?


Hello Winniethe383,
AF stands for "Auto Focus", When you are clicking a snap, the camera is trying to bring the subject into focus and the Red light blinking is to show the status that the camera is busy Focusing.
Please let me know in case you need any further details and I would be glad to assist you further :)

Regards,
Srinivas

When shutter depressed "AF" and "SB" LED's flash


My camera's shutter will not depress all the way due to a red flash light coming up all the time in the Flash-Ready indicator lamp (refer to pag 28 in the Nikon manual). It can be full sun outside but it will not work due to the red flash light coming on.

A work around is to select a flash mode of 'cancel'.
There is a button toward the front of your camera called the flash mode button. Click that until you see strike mark on the flash icon of your monitor screen (see page 32 in the Nikon manual).

The camera must have a malfunction of determining the lighting so it always thinks you need to have a flash on the picture. Of course this is not 'fixing' the flash/lighting issue but you can take typical day pictures for now with this work around.

Nikkon coolpix l10 won't snap picture


hi there
just an idea the big multi button with the ok in the middle
press the 3 o'clock bit with the mountain symbol on it (while in camera mode) it should say auto but if it doesn't use the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock keys to select auto then press ok in the middle.

hope this helps

Monitor goes black


It always does that while it's powering up the flash again. If you're saying it doesn't come back after a few more seconds, that is a problem. Or maybe by that time, the power saver kicks in. You can tell if the power light starts blinking. Then you just have to press the shutter button again to turn it back on.
