Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my Nikon Coolpix 4300. The camera will

\015 I dropped my Nikon Coolpix 4300. The camera will come on but as soon as I turn it on I get the message "This card cannot be used". I can remove the card and put into my printer and it will pull up the pics I have on the card. Is there anything that I can do?\015

Answers :

It is probably a connection problem. I removed the 9 screws from the bottom and 2 sides of the camera, opened it slightly and snapped it shut after looking within.. The problem cleared. Bring it to the service center if you feel you can't put it back together again after you open the case. It is not a card issue.
I Don't have a solution but I have a coolpix 4300 and the plastic tqab inside the battery cover broke off. Any suggestions aside o paying a ridiculous price of $27.99 for one?

Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen. (Also installed fresh batteries.) Camera has been working faithfully on a regular basis. Worked just fine a few days ago. Hasn't been dropped or suffered any 'trauma'.


Hi,\015\012\015\012The fact that the screen is displaying an image even though it is a distorted one of lines in screen indicates that the screen is receiving a signal. This points to a fault with the screen itself and not the camera. ... Digital Cameras

Good Day. I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L16 camera onto a table. Since then when i switch the device on the lens goes out about a quarter and the goes back in and i get a lens error message. I noticed that when the lens goes out it bends to the right(looking from the top) and gets stuck by something. When i pull the lens a little to the left while switching it on everything works fine. A very small metal part came out of the camera. Any ideas? is it repairable?
