Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX P3 Digital Camera ?
Broken mode dial?
\015 When I turn my mode dial on SET UP, it shows the menu for P exposure mode. Do you think that the mode dial is the problem? Do you know if there is a way to format the camera in this case?\015
Make sure that the SETUP option is nearest to the black mark on the camera, if you are still not shown the options menu, you should probably call Nikon USA to get the camera serviced if still under warranty.

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre

Suddenly I can't control the aperture with the sub command dial in the manual mode. I have tried a "hard reset" and the two button reset to factory defaults. In M,A and S modes the shutter and aperture values will disappear and only return after a two button reset.I can adjust the aperture in A mode with the command dial.The shutter speed is adjustable in M mode with the command dial.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.
Base from the description of your problem what we can do here first to correct the problem is to reset or restore the camera settings to its default from the camera MENU. Then once you done that check if its working fine now. ... Olympus Digital Cameras
On my D50 the COMMAND DIAL has stopped working so shutter and apertrure cannot be set - but - normal photographs cxan be taken using 'AUTO' or MODE settings on the MODE DIAL. Only P,A,S,M modes cannot be used. Otherwise all functions of the camera work well and photo results are good. The camera has NOT been dropped or jarred.

I want a list of the likely different faults which can cause an Olympus C-5060Z not to power on. I'll do the rest. A wiring schematic would help too. I am aware of possible cause being the On/off switch under mode dial and how to replace that, and have a new mode-dial/power switch part, but while the camera is open where the switch can be function tested at ribbon cable connection, I need a check-list of the other most likely causes in the order of most likely to least likely.
