My Nikon Coolpix S3100's battery will not charge. The small green light flashes for approx 10-15 seconds then disappears. Left the camera plugged into the charger the whole night but no joy!

You could get a new battery on amazon for $10, or you could get a new camera. I recommend getting a new camera, since the s3100 isn't very good.

Did you ever figure this out I got the same problem?

An official firmware uptade has been released a few days ago that solves the following issue:
"When the AC Adapter and USB Cable are connected to the camera to charge the rechargeable battery with the battery at or very near full exhaustion, the battery sometimes could not be charged."
They also say:
"If you are unable to charge your camera battery to perform the firmware update click here for more information."

I Hope this helps.
