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
When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S220 on, it makes a funny sound and the lens tries to focus. It zooms in, and out, trying to focus but stays blurry. It then says 'lens error' and turns off. I have always kept it in a protective case, and have never dropped it. What has happened?
From what you said, it shouldn't be a lens problem, but even dust, lint, and sand can cause problems. The focusing ring works with an electromagnetic field, and that attracts particles. You can try to spray compressed air into the lens assembly t ... Digital Cameras
Lens Error! We have a Nikon Coolpix S6. When attempting to turn on, the camera buzzes.

Won't turn on. My Nikon Coolpix 5900 is 4 yr old. Battery is good. When I press the on/off button, the orange/red light on the front stays on permanently and the shutter fails to open.

My Nikon CoolPix 5700 seems confused about OFF and ON, and now I can't take a photo becase it won't stay ON long enough for me to press the shutter release. The problem appears a bit like a low-battery issue, but I have been placing totally recharged batteries (as fas as I can tell) in it (two different ones) over and over, and still the camera turns on and off at will. Any ideas? Is there a way to totally reboot the camera, like one reboots hard drives? Thank you.

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S70 camera on it says battery exhausted. I thought that meant the battery was dead. I just charged it overnight & it now still says the same thing. I took the battery out & put it back in & now it doesn't say anything the yellow light just flashes. Any assistance would be great. Never been mishandled, dropped, etc. It's in great condition & stays in the case unless used.
