Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera not functioning after power on

After 4 to 5 months, camera when powered on, will not function with any of the other electronic components, not matter what you try; zooming in, pressing menu function, snapping a photo. Lens simply remains open with no functionality beyond that. The only way to power off, is to open the battery compartment. What is wrong with the camera? Do you think Nikon will back this problem up by either fixing the internal electronics or replacing it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My camera was put down the the screen was block and no preview picture was display...can u help me please

Change the batteries to rule out zero juice. The camera will not function without power, and leaving it on will drain it dry.

If the camera was dropped, it could be a damaged internal component, I really can't say much more to any accuracy without specific information.

btw, block != black

What is the difference between electrical and electronics?


One view point is that "Electrical" relates to the development and delivery of the electrical energy to the various devices that perform specific functions in a given environment. Example: The alternator in your car that series of wires delivers electrical power / energy to various components (radio, the computer that monitors / controls operation of the engine) in todays cars.

Where as "Electronics" relates more to the complex functions performed within a given device, more often now days by circuits comprised of many micro electronic sub components that make up the structure of a single micro electronic component. Example: a typical CPU chip would / could contain thousands of individual transistor circuits within a device no bigger that the size of your small finger nail with room to spare.

Hi I have a dusk to dawn motion light. It is the brushed nickel model. The problem I'm having is it is staying on all the time. The unit is only 4 months old. It was working at one time, then just quit....

Some of these fixtures have a function built in that turns the light on solid if the power is cycled rapidly several times. If you have had power glitches and this unit has that function, it might be locked on.

Pull the circuit breaker for the light for a couple minutes then try re-powering it to reset the function.

Flip left outdoors for two months

You may be able to recover the camera to previous functionality if you disassemble the camera and clean the PCB's (printed circuit boards) of dew/water staining.
Spray the lens with WD-40 to stop it seizing and put the rest of the components in dry warm place for a couple of days so they can dry out.
Reassemble the camera and try to power it up.

Good luck.

Power button gone

the best help u can get is from the service center of the camera.
else do one thing.
as am from india i dont know what place is the HUB to buy any kind of electronics items near your place.
if u go to that kind of place where all kinds of electronics goods like computers, digicams, electronic components, etc etc...
there they would take the power button from any other old camera and fix it in yours.
but one thing is u dont need to prefer for a new button. old one will work fine. even inn service center they have old buttons. so try in service center first. then try in shops.
