The OK button is not working on my Nikon Coolpix S2500 any suggestions please
Check for any dust or dirt that could be stuck around any of the buttons on the camera. If the camera is under the impression another button is being pressed (because of dust dirt) then the OK button will not work. If you cannot find any button that seems to be jammed then it maybe the sensor behind the OK button has failed.
We hope the suggestions helps to get the camera running again

The lens cover on my Nikon Coolpix S6100 will not close completely. How do I repair?
This is a problem with many different manufacturer cameras, including Nikon.
I simply don't do anything unless the blade that does not retract is interfering with a proper photograph, in which case I just open it manually with slight finger pressure.
Many Canon point and shoots have legendary leaf problems, and a little pressure opens them quickly.
Don't try to repair it. That's when people get into trouble.
Some people suggest blowing air but most people use a spray like Dustoff which has oil in it, so I don't recommend that.
If you have a quality bulb-type air blower, they are very effective.
What works best for me however is a vacuum cleaner and the little attachment that is for getting between shade slats.

My Nikon D3200 will not focus?
Let me start with a guess. There is a diopter adjuster just behind the viewfinder. If it is adjusted way off from the correction you need, everything will look no better than out of focus though your photos may look fine. Google how to adjust the diopter setting on the D3200 and see if that won't take care of the problem.
Here is one of the secrets: your camera has so many adjustments that if someone else picks up your camera, they may change a setting leaving you wondering what happened and why. Be cautious.
If that guess is not the cause, let us continue. Are you saying that when you switch the lens setting from A to M, it still will not manually focus? Some of the lenses are mostly made for autofocussing, so the focus ring that you have to turn for manual focus could be narrow and out at the very front of the lens. If you cannot manually focus, something may have happened to the inner works of your lens. Try another Nikon lens to see if it will autofocus. If it does, your lens requires servicing or replacing.
Good luck. Hope you get back to shooting soon.

Why am I losing communication between corded remote shutter release and camera?
Sounds like you have a smart or programmable shutter release - so a fault could happen at either end of the cable - or the cable itself.
bad battery in the shutter release. try replacing it with a tested new one.
Cable issues, though intermittent. I presume that the cable is not removable from the portion where it can be set. If you try this on another camera body and you have the same problems (and it isn't the battery), then it is either the 'brain' in the control unit or the cable - either of which means you need a new shutter release.
If it works on the other camera without failure, then it is either the plug or the brain of your camera body. If this is the case, recharge your camera battery and try again.
