Hello, You are facing several problems that must be first taken care of. The lens assembly is not sealed ermetically so if beer got into it..that's bad because no service center can dissasemble the lens assembly to clean them. However you should take your chance. First of all the camera needs to be dissasembled. Second, it's main board and buttons must be washed in something called izopropilic alcohol. Then the internal battery and external one must be removed and eventually a firmware update should be done. You may have all of these done in a service center, they aren't that expensive repairs. If after this repairs the pictures will come out blurry or distorded this means that the lens assembly was damaged. I think however that you should try these first. Please go to a service center, try the smaller ones, generic "camera repair service", not the larger ones working for large corporation (they tend to be expensive). Ask them for a cost estimate before actually repairing the camera. For more informations please reply back here. Good luck.

My screen is black except in movie and easy mode. I can hear it click for these 2 settings but not the others. I can take pictures in the other modes and they seem OK. Thanks.


Your camera is fine. You just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This turns the screen on or off in picture taking mode to save battery power. With the screen off, you would instead use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time while the camera is turned on.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get...


FREE INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR CAMERA FIRST
The Stylus Tough-3000 can be submerged up to 10 feet underwater and incorporates four preset underwater scene modes as well as the ability to capture HD movies underwater. It can also withstand a five-foot drop and can still perform when the temperature dips well below freezing (14 degrees Fahrenheit; -10 degrees Celsius)
SOLUTION
1. Remove the SIM card , battery, and ensure that your camera is dry 2. reinstall the sim, battery, and if the battery has not been charged or is known to be used, please replace for a new one. 3. Start up your Camera and attempt to take a photo now without using any of the video features. If your still not registering your photos, return for continued assistance.

Black screen


You may have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save battery power. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place to center your pictures (that little glass peephole near the top of your camera). Try pressing the DISP button once to see if it turns the screen back on.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Weird picture in viewfinder


The discoloring problem is quite common, but its hard to tell from your post what?s the degree of the defect. Unfortunately the LCD screen washing out in bright sunlight is a problem on many digitals, and also streaking lines coming off bright areas. There are hoods that you can buy for the Nikons that will fix this problem. I don't have any links to them but they are not hard to find. If you think your problem is really too much to absorb, feel it can't possibly be anything normal, or have problems with the actual pictures as they transfer to a computer, I suggest you take it back to the store and say you're not satisfied with the product. Hope it turns out well.
