Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Bought a Nikon Coolpix S220 digital camera in Thailand as the one I had was stolen in Laos- this Nikon camera came with a manual in Thai- what can I do about getting info in English- want to know what I have to do to see if the battery needs to be charged-my old camera had a place where one could see if the battery was running low. Thank you.


Answers :

If in doubt, charge the battery. You're not going to hurt it by charging it too frequently.

The camera does not have a battery level indicator as such. That is, it doesn't display anything if the battery level is good. If the level drops, a battery symbol will appear on the upper-right corner of the screen. If the level drops too far, it will say "Battery exhausted" and not allow you to take any pictures.

You can download an English-language copy of the manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13948

Lens error Hello, my son has a Nikon Coolpix L11 camera. Today he took it to school for the last day of class to get pictures of his friend.

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon Coolpix S200 and yesterday during my nephews birthday I sat in on the kitchen table, left to play guitar hero, came back to see my camera completely covered in milk. I dont know how long it was laying in the spilled milk..and yes..there is use in crying over it. :( I grabbed the camera, dried it off, took the battery and memory card out. I got a wet towel and got all of the milk I could get out but it was in the battery compartment and everything. Put the battery back in and tried

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another


From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen

PC Mode I have one that for 2 secs maybe, I can see something I could take a picture of.  Problem is that on second 3 the camera screen has switched to saying PC Mode, even though it is most definitely not attached to the computer.  I have tried removing the battery and the cards and putting them back in, and still only get PC Mode.  Someone said something on another board about possibly a reset button, but I don't know if the sony dsc-s50 has one.  Has anybody else had a similar problem, or doe

The battery for my camera does not charge when I put it in the charger. I have had the camera and charger for about a year without any problems until now. When I put the battery in the charger, the green light stays on and does not become yellow. I know that my battery needs to be charged because when I turn on my camera, it dies. Do I need a new charger? Or is my camera or battery not working?

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).

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
