After every picture I have to turn camera off to take another
My camera has just gone wonky in the past 24 hours. Everytime I take a picture, I have to turn the camera off to get it to take a new one. On the right side of the lcd screen there is a flashing red square that looks like it might be a clock. I don't recall this from before. I have reset all factory defaults and checked all the settings, everything seems fine other than this. Pictures are being saved, but turning it off after every picture is becoming rather annoying.
Re: After every picture I have to turn camera off to take...
My Nikon Coolpix hasn't been out of the box since Christmas. Now I turn it on and it says "lens error" and a red triangle with exclamation point. I've looked over the internet, and most places say its from being dropped or dust or sand inside the lens. I tried the air blower, tapping it gently, but still no luck. Any other clues, besides it just going in the trash and buying a new one?

This sounds like the screen is damaged. When you are taking the photo, can you see the image clearly. If not, the screen is damaged and you need to replace the screen.
If you can, however, see the image clearly, then check that your settings aren't putting on any effects
It depends on whether or not the seal is airtight, and whether or not it's been in sunlight. The best thing to do is sniff it. If it smells bad, it IS bad. Even if it smells okay, you'll still need to do a skin test to make sure other ingredients haven't gone wonky. Dab some on the inside of your upper arm (your skin is relatively thin and sensitive there-- if it's okay there, it should be okay elsewhere) and wait 24 hours.
How old are the batteries? They could be toast, so check with new ones...can you power it with an AC adapter to make sure the camera works? If not check the manuel for any settings you could have actuated like a timer or sleep mode.
Check what "mode" its in...some cameras can be switched to different modes that will affect functions...including taking pictures.
Has it gone from cold to hot temp or vice versa in this time period? If so...it could have condensation inside and shut down for self protection...open whatever can be opened on the camera and let it sit indoors at room temp for a few hours.
If none of that works....take it back to where you bought it if possible and talk to the manager.
