Re: Auto reset following each picture shot
Well most digital cameras are not equipped to allow to take a lot of action photos or just snap off various pictures of the same subject in a relatively short time. The models which are ill-equipped require more time between shots to save the image to the memory card. Just imagine the time it takes to save something on a disk. Keep in mind that the burst mode allows temporary storage of images. This way, you could take as many pictures as you can in no time. With the Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera, you can expect to find a shutter speed of 1/1000 to 8 seconds.
One more camera feature include a Self-Timer mode, which provides a three- or 10-second delay between the time the Shutter button is pressed and the time the image is actually captured...

Please check if the LCD backlight isn't turned off by pressing DISPLAY botton (it may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon) several times until the screen appears, if this doesn't work perform the following reset procedure on the camera:
Locate the RESET button on the camera.
Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Follow these steps:
1. In any Still mode, tap Settings to open the Settings
2. Tap Self-Timer/Burst repeatedly, until the desired
Self-timer icon appears at the bottom of the LCD:
10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second
delay (so you have time to get into the scene).
2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second
delay (for a steady, auto-shutter release on a
2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second
delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later.
3. Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down.
The camera takes the picture/pictures
This happened because you are not a camera repair technician. You took a complicated piece of electronic equipment apart without any knowledge of what you were doing. I'm glad that at least, your pics turn out.
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, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
I'm not sure if you are talking about the quick view of a picture just taken, or using playback mode to view shots taken. Either way, I suggest changing batteries so they are fresh.
There are 3 different LCD choices when in "Shooting Mode."
The display mode will change each time you press this button.
1- Standard (no info displayed, just pic)
2- Detailed (infor displayed)
If you have tried this, then you may want to perform a reset to the cam. This will reset any screen/LCD settings that may have been changed.
Goto the Setup Menu and select "Reset All." Select "OK" and press "Func. Set."
This reset WILL NOT reset the following:
-Current Shooting Mode
-Date/Time, Language, & Video System settings
-White Balance Data (of you have custom settings changed in the custom white calance function)
Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This button manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. Pictures will still appear momentarily when shot.
My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?
Hi, I had the same problem and I wrote an email to Nu. They wrote me back that I should use the Factory reset feature which you have to go through the Factory Menu to get to. Instructions to do this are as follows. I got to the menu my first try but it has been a pain to get back to it. I hope it will be easier to access for yours.
Hope this helps

You've probably got something as simple as a ribbon cable loose in the
camera. Beware though, dismantling is a serious task unless you have
Amazingly the CCD is often connected in such a simple, analog-esqe, way
that disconnecting it doesn't cause an error, just a black screen.
