Nikon Coolpix S3100 $80.

"Can a powerful camera fit in the palm of your hand? Yes, if itís the ultra-light, ultra-thin COOLPIX S3100, engineered with a 14.0-megapixel CCD sensor that assures superb image quality with every shot."

I had no idea that you could buy a camera for that kind of money. When I went from my old SLR to digital, I donated over $3000 of equipment and bought a Kodak with lenses, and filters for a few hundred till I found what I wanted. I've still got the Kodak 10 +yrs later and I'm amazed and confused by all the products available.

BTW, I learned photography with a Speed Graphic that was handed down to me from my father who bought it new as a professional. I never got the "bug" to put the time and money into being much more than a point and shot picture taker.

Back to your camera. I doubt that any camera company is putting a lot of repair service into a $80 camera. I'd suggest getting a refund or see if they'll send you a new one.
