Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera ?

Daughter opened battery area under water accidentally. dried it. red light at battery flashing. Can it be fixed??



Answers :

The good news is, the flashing red light on your camera means that the camera itself did not short-circuit and still may work. If it's flashing red next to a battery logo or it is a flashing battery logo that could indicate that the battery itself is fried and you would need to purchase a new battery. You can find camera batteries for cheap on websites such as Amazon.com

After power on, green light comes on. On opening the touch pad viewer orange charge light comes on and whole camera shuts down leaving orange light lit. The only way to turn off the orange light is to remove battery. Since the battery is showing more than 90 mins remaining..I doubted it ay be battery but on changing battery with new one problem exists. I think it may be to do with the connection of touch pad viewer at hinge location. If i flip open fast the touch pad viewer stays on...then on

"lens error" when i turn the camera on to shoot photos, the display says "lens error".   It sounds as if the lens mechanism is trying to open, but it doesn't move.   Lights keep flashing.  I am able to view pictures I have already taken, but not able to take pictures. I have tried recharging the batteries and replacing them, but it did not fix the camera.

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.
