Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera ?

System error problem


\015 MY nikon coolpix 3100 camera turns off as soon as i turn it on even afer i just put fresh batteries in it. It will let you enter the library where you store you pictures and the set up menu only. \015\012\015\012Does anyone know how to fix it?\015

Answers :

Okay, now I'm gonna bring life to this discussion again...

I have the exact same problem: When I turn the Nikon Coolpix 3100 on it just turns off immediately. I use two AA-batteries. I've tried to change them several times but it makes no difference.

What should I do to fix this problem?

I would really appreciate some help with this because on Monday I'm going on a one week camping-trip with some friends, and it would be nice if I could take some pictures then...

I was having this exact problem until someone pointed out to me that the camera's CRV3 batteries can be replaced with simple double A's. I'm sure the manual says this but I must have overlooked it. Anyway, the problem seems to be fixed. The camera works as if new!! I haven't tested it for any long period yet but the regular day to day photography that I have done gives me hope that the problem has been solved.

I have a cyber shot DSC-S80 which has been working fine for ages. However I deleted some photos from the memory stick whilst it was in my computer and now I get the 'memory stick error' message flashing everytime I turn the camera on with it in.

I can transfer the photos from my camera to the PC with the software that came with the camera. When I try to use their e-mail feature I get an error message that says "mail not sent". Yet a few weeks ago I was sending e-mails with pics with no problem, so I know it is not my support system. The program does not allow one to go into my own e-mail and attach pics, so I am stuck with their program which has stopped functioning. What can I do?

I have a nikon d70 digital camera with which I have shot a few thousand exposures. A number of what seem to be minor software errors have been cropping up. For instance: I can't get the camera to "beep"; I can't format the memory cards using the 2 button system - I have to go through the menu setup; I can't select certain of the image quality options using the "quality" button - I have to go thru the manu.
