Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera ?

Camera frozen open, but isn't on


\015 While transfering photos from camera to computer, computer froze. now the camera won't turn on, and is frozen "open" with the lens open. help. when I put new batteries in, it still won't turn on! so obviously can't "close" the lens, etc. Did I "fry" it when the computer froze and had to restart it?\015
