Hello. thanks for choosing fixya! the most common reason for your symptom is that the contacts in the camera need to be cleaned. To do this use the eraser on a common pencil and gently "scrub" the contacts, also clean the contacts on the batteries while you are at it and on the charger. This should solve your problem.

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger. But the charger appears dead, the charge light is not lighting up with either of them. Do I need a proprietary or a specially-rate

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off.
