Malfunctioning of Nikon 2100

i HAVE A Nikon Coolpix 2100

When i switch on my Nikon Cam both the Red and Green lights on the cam are on and Green one goes on Blinking ( Also on the Screen i see A RED DOT blinking and showing AF ) . So it happens that i have to take a picture but cannot use any other functions like Zoom etc.

After taking the first picture i have to rotate the Dial and Zoom and then again rotate the DIal and take a Picture..

So inshort for every function i have rotate dial and then only can i take a snap..

So if in Night mode ,and i want to take a pic i have to do the follwing:
1. Zoom the cam lens
2. Rotate the dial (in this step i cant use zoom)
3. CLICK PIC...SO FOR one pic have to rotate lens twice..

This has happens have the cam got a little moist and NOT WET in the rains...

Pictures and quality remain same..

plz let me know what to do..

I had the same problem.The shutter button is faulty and is always half pressed - auto focus is operational (this is the step before actually the picture is taken. Try to clean it up with some special electrical contact spray. if this does not work - need to replace it - Not a simple job for the novice. You might need to take the camera to a service center for a spare on-off-expose button. I had an old faulty camera where I took the button from it. That solved the problem.

Its only 1 month that I have purchased my Nikon Coolpix s400, I usually used to charge it with the usb charger. but now its not charging when I insert theusb charger to it green light blinks only for 30...

Hi,the battery may have a dead one.,since you have a valid warranty pls ask for a replacement..
It is normal for the batteries since they have been fully tested under load..
sometimes it happens even with a famous camera maker as NIKON but remember batteries manufactured by another source,they just put a brand name whoever asks.
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me
