The card has corrupted. You'll likely need to use recovery software (see this article). After recovery, youmay need to format the card in your camera to correct the corruption.

Nikon d3100 stuck on flash mode

What do you mean by flash mode? Have you read the manual how to use the camera? If nothing from there helps, try connecting it via USB and check if there is firmware update. If even that doesn't help, try acessing menu and doing hard reset from there.

When I powered my Nikon d3100, it displays, This memory card cannot be used. Card maybe damaged. Insert another card. I removed the card, the message is keep showing as I powered it. N.B. no card inside.

Some of the pins at the memory reader are damaged. Or the PCB is faulty. Both scenaries need to go to a repair center.

Built-in flash does not work even in a MASP mode

This often depends on the shooting mode you are using. It is often on a selection wheel. Say you are in Fireworks mode the flash will not fire. If you get out of a special mode back into normal camera I am pretty sure your flash will not be greyed out.

See if you can reset the electronics and restore the unit to factory defaults. If no result and if Nikon does not have a hidden code to fix situation you will either have to live with the situation, replace the camera, fix the camera (not cost effective.) Your choice.

If a pin got damaged, then a trip back to a Nikon repair center is the only way to properly repair it. It may be still under warranty if it's less than 3 years old.

My Nikon D3100 will not turn on. Is there something wrong with the batteries/memory card? Or rather the camera body itself?

It could be either the battery or the camera. If you have a second battery, try it. If it works with the second battery then the first battery is bad. If you don't have a second battery, take your camera and battery to a good photo store. They should have a second battery to try. You might be able to test your battery with one of theirs. This will tell you whether the battery or the camera is bad.

Will take pictures for a short time, then why does pushing the trigger have no response?

Hi Robert, I am thinking of one cause but first you will have to answer a simple question for your self before proceeding. "How old is your camera?" If it is old enough, the problem you are encountering is technical and you will surrender your camera to a qualified technician/ camera service center for proper check. Digital cameras are electronic equipment; thus have component parts such as capacitors, resistors etc that are almost dead. the first time you power on, they work fine but as the heat builds up, those parts stop working completely. that is when you cannot take any more pictures. Only trained technicians can fix that kind of problems.

My Nion3100 is saving pictures into "NEF" format instead of "JPEG. Don't know how it got switched or how to switch t back. Can I re-format the pic on my SD card so I can work with them on the computer

Open the "Shooting Menu" by pressing the Menu button. Press the right Multi-selector and then scroll up or down to "Image Quality". Press the right Multi-selector and you will see the various choices for JPEG and NEF combinations and quality, make your selection by scrolling up or down and pressing "OK". As for converting you NEF photos to JPEG; you can easily do that in one of several ways on your computer. If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop, all you have to do is open your pictures, select "Save As" and use the pull-down menu to select JPEG and save. If you do not have that program, there are several conversion programs available on the Web; manu for free. I use a program called BatchConverter on my Mac. There are similar programs of PCs.

Camera was dropped. Totally black exposures. Everything seems to be intact. No rattling.

When the pictures on the memory card are black to, it is really defect. If only the screen is black, although you need it for the settings, you still could use it to shoot in automatic mode. Won't be worth repairing it, because new ones are cheaper.

Dropped and now all exposures are black.

Oops. that hurts. But I'm afraid it won't be worth repairing this one. I already saw the body been sold for less than 300 euro new. And I think the repair centre will ask more for opening and closing this one. Then you still have a used body. Start saving or perhaps you have an insurance that will pay a new one for you?
