Coolpix L820 will record a video, but will not take picture.

July 16, 2013 at 15:27:53
Specs: Nikon Coolpix L820
I took more than 500 pictures on a recent vacation and a few more since I've been home. Now, when I press the shutter-release button and see the green border, nothing further happens. That is, I cannot press the button any further to take the picture. I can, however, record a video. The batteries are full.

Am I doing something wrong?

Assuming it's not defective, is it possible the SD card has a limit on the number of pictures it can hold? I imagine the pictures and videos are kept in separate folders on the card.

Otherwise maybe one of the settings was changed. Here's a download for the manual in case you don't have it:

Update: There's something wrong with the camera and it has to be sent back to Nikon for repair.

OK, thanks for posting back. Hopefully the camera is still under warranty.
