Question

My camera won't charge.

I can see this has happened to many other people.
But anyway, I follow all directions I can find, and my camera won't charge, plugging it into the computer or the wall.
What is going on? Do I need to get another charge, or what?

Question

My daughter's Coolpix S3000 takes blurry/out of focus photos all the time

She complained about how bad it was and I didn't believe her at first. I verified her settings were all normal and stabilization and focus assist were on, but no luck. Even when mounted on a tripod it takes very blurry photos. I did a search on the web and it appears to be a common complaint in discussion areas all over. Amazingly it does not appear to be ever mentioned as a problem in your support knowledge base anywhere. What do you suggest we do to resolve our problem?

When the battery is fully charged there's no indicator. The battery level indicator will appear on the Top left corner of the screen showing a battery half full, this means its low and you need to prepare to charge it. Once the battery runs out of charge you will get a message on the screen "Battery Exhausted" and you won't be able to take more pictures.
