Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Nikon Coolpix 3.6x. When I plug the cord in the camera to load the pictures into my computer, I then turn on the camera, the camera goes *beep*, the monitor flashes on a second. then goes back off. I've checked the cord connection into my computer and put new batteries in my camera. It has done this before, when I deleted the pictures from my camera. It was something between the scene and playback buttons I think, but I can't seem to straighten it out. Can you help?

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer. Is it a problem with the cord itself? I've put the memory card which has the pictures into my laptop and transfered them successfully that way, which is why it leads me to believe the cord is the issue.
