Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera ?

Camera won't turn on. It hasn't been used in some time and the batteries seemed corroded. We replaced the batteries, but the battery chamber sticks and the camera still doesn't work.


Answers :

If the batteries seemed corroded, you can bet the contacts are also. If you're lucky, after cleaning the contacts and the entire interior of the battery compartment and inserting a fresh set of batteries (not the ones you've already used in the dirty camera, but a new set), the camera will turn on and function properly.

What's more likely to happen, unfortunately, is that the above will not work because the corrosion has spread to the interior of the camera. In that case, it may be time to consider replacing the camera. And in the future, remove the batteries if you're not going to be using the camera for longer than a couple of weeks.

Battery compatibility battery is fully charged when it was replaced after charging the camera display says ' for use with compatible battery only' this is the original battery and has not been replaced with a sustitute.My husband has the same model camera and i have tried his battery but it still says the same thing, also i tried the battery from my camera and it works perfectly fine in his.

BATTERY I have an older DSC-50 which works great...I bought the new W-170 and they both use the NP-BG1 batteries. I have used the newer battery in the DSC-50 camera and now when I try to use the orignal older battery my camera tells me (For use with compatible battery only) and then shuts down. I can still use the new battery in both cameras. I get the same response from the W-170 with the older battery. Battery has been great and has been holding a good charge... Any ideas?

No matter what I do, my camera keeps giving me a "Battery Depleted" message whenever I try to turn it on. It's a Pentax Optio E40, and I've only had it a couple of weeks. It was working fine, but then one day when I tried to turn it on, I got this error. I replaced the batteries, but the error still came.

Hello, So i got this camera... and i left it on the dashboard for less than 10 min.. and i tried to make it work again.. But every time i try to turn on the camera.. its on for about 2 seconds and then turns off again.. What do i do? i went to the seller and he said, hes has had this problem with other cameras before.. and he told me to get a new battery, so i did! but it still doesnt work! help?
