Default Camera turns on by itself

I have the coolpix 3100 and I have a problem with the camera turning on by itself.

Coolpix 3100 firmware rev 1.2 was for a battery meter fix - check and see what version your firmware is and if it's not 1.2 then go download it and install it and see if it fixes the problem:
