Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Worked for some

Your solution worked for some pictures until it gets to the one that it gets stuck on .. they are all still red X's then a couple of seconds each one will turn to a red and blue icon that says JPEG... then when I hit next on the camera wizard, it is unable to load ANY of the pics, even the ones that showed up as normal pictures.. i am beginning to think it's my memory card, not my camera

Hello,
what operating system are you using? 98se, Xp or vista?

the usb change on your camera to mass storage works good with XP & Vsta.

if selected, you wont see scanner and camera wizard ever again.

when pugging your camera into your pc, the autorun window pops up like you just plugged in a USB jump drive in.

on view file you can drag the whole folder onto your desktop from the camera and rename the folder once done.

if the photos are showing up unable to view photo, file could be corrupt.

ive seen bad memory cards do this. then try another card.

good luck.

Pictures takeh are too bright


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Note that your camera will not be able to take 15 second exposures, as per the above "fix". Instead, place the camera in manual mode, turn off the flash, and take the exposures in a darkened room. This should give you a couple seconds, just enough time to open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are flashing.

Shutter stuck, screen is black. I changed batteries, no help. tried manual shutter, pulling the batteries, and it worked until I shut it off, then next time, black screen again.


Pamela, try the battery trick again (here it is, along with other's similar experience and tips). But after you get it working, take lots of pictures before putting it away again (take a couple hundred of nothing in particular. Just erase them later. After all it's a digital). You want to really work the shutter mechanism to get out any grit or material that might be in there causing it to stick.

Now the A430 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. If after many tries this does not work, then consider trying Fix #5a on the site. But do so with the camera turned off and the lens retracted to lessen the chance of damaging the lens mechanism.

Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. Repeat as the fix recommends, but please note that there may be only a small hope that this will work as the shutter may be stuck in the open position. This is harder to get unstuck than a closed shutter.

If the above doesn't work, consider attempting Fix 5a listed on the web page. There is some risk of damaging your camera with this fix, that's why I hesitate to recommend it until last.

First make sure that you're in full auto mode and not in manual or any of the special scene modes. Check your rotating mode dial that its set to the first red camera by the blue arrow.

If you already are and were in auto, then a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

For your camera (the A460) it's not possible to set the shutter to 15 seconds. Instead, set it to manual mode, turn off the flash, go to a darkened room, take the picture and open the door while the red and yellow light are flashing. Repeat until the shutter becomes unstuck. However, I must say that the chances are probably not very good to fix this with this method. And unfortunately professional repair will be too costly. If repeated tries do not work, it might be time to consider a new camera.

Lens is stuck open


We had the same problem with a Casio Exilim. Had been stuck for months...had nearly given up until I saw another post about banging the camera pretty forcefully to get the lens unstuck. I hit it once on the bottom onto my desk(w/ paper and blotter on the desk-so soft), then twice with the back of the camera against the desk. I turned it on and the lens was unstuck!! Immediately took a couple pictures and it seems to be working fine! If the camera may be lost, you've got nothing to lose to try this out...Good luck!

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.
