Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera ?

Nikon Coolpix 3100 dead w/ lens extended

\015 Lens won't retract. won't turn on. no image on screen. nothing works. I tried another battery. same situation. the only small sign of life I get is, when there is a battery in and I hold the power switch on, the green light flashes once briefly. Thanks for any help you can give.\015

Answers :

I'm curious if the Battery you replaced the first battery you had in it was also bad. That is rare but possible. Another Issue maybe that the door isn't closing all the way creating a cood electrical connection for the batteries inside. It maybe as simmple as applying outward pressure to the battery door. You may need to have the door replaced, unless you can either bend up the metal contacts to assist in the connection ro use something like a small papeclip and some super glue to bridge the contacts.

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.

The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged
