Question about Nikon Coolpix S6100 Digital Camera
The zoom button on top of the camera won't move with my finger pushing it. I have taken very good care of the camera, has NEVER been dropped...
Even though you have taken good care of your camera it does not mean that parts wear out, switches just go bad after use. Your camera will require repairs at a shop to correct this problem. This is NOT a user fix.

Had this problem two weeks ago. On the road to recovery, changing the purpose of the function button seems to have helped me - <Menu>, <Set-up1>, <Controls>, <Func.> Change chosen option away from the top one (User Setting). I found the third one down with the flash symbol least confusing. Then <Set> and <Menu> button to escape from the menus.
Having done all this the camera will take pictures again without pressing the lock button. However, I'm not convinced the func. button works as described in the manual. Hope this helps?

had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.

I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

The lens of the camera can be retracted by mechanical means driven by gears thus sometimes likely to become misaligned or jammed. Please do not attempt to force or push the lense as it might cause serious damage, the best thing to do is to have it fixed by your authorized local repair shop and have the mechanical components checked.
