Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

2 Answers

No image in lcd screen

I turned on my L3 this morning - the splash welcome screen showed and the graphics on the screen are showing but there's no image from the lens (in any mode - normal, scene or video). There's clearly power to the camera and the screen works, so does anyone know what might be going on? Might the shutter be stuck closed? Is my L3 a gonner..?

Chhers,
Martin (in UK)

    Thanks for your help, dlundmark. I wouldn't have thought that it might be the ccd, although I did later realise it couldn't be the shutter (!). That gives me more to go on with Nikon UK, though.

    Thanks very much.

Okay, I'm back and I'm still having problems. The camera now does take pictures, but they're largely orange in hue and have pale stripes across them. Video capture colour seems okay, but the results seem a little jerky.

Still think it could be the CCD?

Many thanks.

M.

Hi:
This sounds internal and could be a bad ccd (sensor). If you call Nikon at their toll free number and ask them, it may be possible that they will fix this for free. They will let you know if it is too much to fix, in which case it will be returned to you. With Nikon you will need to pay for shipping to Nikon's repair facility.
For possible repair see this link and call the toll free number at the service center... https://www.nikondealernet.com/sal4/
Take care

Error before welcome screen, double picture in welcome screen, hang after welcomescreen


If your monitor is showing weird colors before the Windows XP welcome screen then it might be that your monitor is bad. Try hooking up a different monitor and see if the colors look fine as the computer is booting up, if it does then you know the original monitor is bad, if the colors still look weird then you know your video card is going bad.

As far as the lockups are concerned, with the computer turned off, take out the memory. With a can of air, blow some on the contacts of the memory and into the memory slots on the motherboard. You want to do this to make sure that there is no dust or dirt cause that can cause lockups to happen.

If you need more help, just let me know.

NO display on laptop lcd


Well this can be two things your LCD screen itself or the graphics card. Easy way to check is to hook the laptop to an external monitor and see if the image comes up. If it does then your lcd screen needs to be replaced,if it does not then its your graphics card.

Bank Monitor problems


Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.

Nikon Coolpix L3


Nikon Technical Support Team on the web site should need to know about this. Check if in fact the images do show but only dimly if you look carefully along the screen if you can this would suggest the back light has failed. But if you can see menu item but no play back#then this suggests another type of firmware failure
