You probably have a lens-jam situation. Try knocking gently around the lens front - like a tap with your finger while turning/ pressing the power button.

That depends on what you want to do. If you want to shoot a video then you set it to the "Movie" position. If you want to setup the camera then you set it to the "Setup" position. If you want to let the camera control everything then you set it to the "Auto" position. And so forth. See page 6 of this manual: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/CP2100man.pdf

This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

Compatibility chart for CF cards address below:-

Can you grab it using small needle-nosed pliers?

Nikon Coolpix... • Answered on Jul 17, 2011


Sorry to say but this camera can only support a maximum 512 MB of memory card so the 1GB size will not be read by this unit.

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Nikon Transfer.

Hi,
Follow this steps in order the resolve the issue.
  • What you can try to do is spray some compressed air into the lens to try to free up any sand or dust that may have worked its way in. If that doesn't help, you can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • Switch the camera OFF and then ON again 2-3 times.
  • Remove and recharge / replace the battery, If the error does not clear, Keep battery battery out of the camera overnight, and try again the next day.

Else your device need service (repair)
Good Luck & have a nice day.

That's not a good idea. If you have stored the pics safely on your computer, you can completely erase the card in the camera by going into the menu and finding "format"...follow the on-screen instructions.
