You must unlock the memory card, take out the memory card and there will be a little switch on the side, move the switch to the opposite position and the camera should work just fine, if this doesn't work, let me know

I have a picture of a padlock in my viewfinder. What does it mean. Should I get rid of it? If so, how?

Hi Brian, the padlock icon signifies a function is locked - eg. auto focus or something similar. You need to read the manual to find out what it really represents. Removing it will depend on your preference but first find out.

What does it mean when there is a tiny circle with a padlock inside located by the batteryline at the top

That you have locked the screen orientation. Swipe up from the bottom and unlock it with the lock icon.

I like to get up close pics of objects especially plants and scenery. The problem is when I zoom in the picture is always blurry and cannot focus on objects that are not far away. Is there anyway setting...

most cameras come with an option called macro,this setting is for close up shots.on your camera it needs to set at wide angle.when choosing the shooting mode move left or right and choose the icon of a flower.if you adjust the zoom, a zoom bar will appear at the top of the lcd.if you try to use a zoom not intended for macro shots the flower icon will gray out and the bar will appear yellow,if you take a picture with the yellow bar it will be blurry.if you zoom out a little until it stops you should be ok. if you use a flash in macro mode the images edges usually will darken.hope this helps.

Problem with coolpix 8700 camera

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

LCD Stuck

Did you unlock the control keys? If you see an icon of a padlock on the screen you have locked out the buttons and need to unlock it. Look at the buttons and you will see the buttons have lines drawn from one to another. That means when those two buttons are pressed together, they perform a special function. To unlock the buttons you have to press two of the buttons that have the lock symbol drawn to them.

Camera stuck in movie mode

press menu button, left or right arrow button until you come upon REC Mode. Choose option Normal. Yours is on Multiburst and that is causing your problem. Changing it to Normal should fix it.
