Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged. Have checked all 4 different batteries and voltages all appear at of above specified 3.7 VDC. Still only one of the 4 will ever allow the camera to functio


A voltage test alone cannot determine if the battery is good unless you can have the current rating of the battery tested. So if the camera comes on after a charge it seems that the battery is not retaining current for the camera to boot on.\01 ... Nikon COOLPIX S710 Digital Camera

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

Hi. our EOS 20D has stopped working. Thought it was the battery but both are charged. The camera is basically dead and wont switch on. It stopped a few days ago and worked on and off for a few days and now is not working at all. Have removed and checked batteries and memory card. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

Charging battery the battery died when in use and when we placed it on the charger the red light flashes instead of staying solid red and does not charge the camera. Other functions on the cradle work. I tried removing and reinsertting the battery and checked the contacts and they are clean. the contacts on the charger are also clean. I down loaded the pictures on it thru the cradle so that seems to be working

Battery Problem When fully charged the camera will work for a few hours. It can be switched off annd back on again and will run with no little loss of charge after 8 hours or so. If a fully charged battery is fitted but is not turned on the camera will not even switch on after about 15 hours - the battery is totally run down. New batteries have been used but no difference is found. This has happened from new. It was returned to Nikon UK's service department with a covering letter trying to

Olympus D-600L Lense tries to open & shutter won't work. Firstly, Batteries are properly charged. The Zoom works, the SLR viewer is closed. When holding down the button it sounds like the camera wants to activate the shutter. I tried to remove the case but even after removing all the screws I still could not loosen the case.

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.


Hi,\015\012It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new batte ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell. I purchased it from UK, and I'm n

BATTERY I have an older DSC-50 which works great...I bought the new W-170 and they both use the NP-BG1 batteries. I have used the newer battery in the DSC-50 camera and now when I try to use the orignal older battery my camera tells me (For use with compatible battery only) and then shuts down. I can still use the new battery in both cameras. I get the same response from the W-170 with the older battery. Battery has been great and has been holding a good charge... Any ideas?

I have an Olypus FE-230 Digital Camera, and I was trying to upload photos to my computer. This wasn't working, so I ejected it, but instead of ejecting I was told the device was improperly removed (though I hadn't disconnected it at all). Now when I turn it on I only get a screen with two options: Power Off or Reset. I've only clicked Power Off, but I can't get anything other than this screen. The battery was running low so i've charged it. It isn't fully charged, but should be at least half-way

Nikon Coolpix 8800 VR - changed memory card (last thing I did) and the zoom lense stopped half way. It won't retract, in fact there is no motor sounds, lights displays or anything working.
