Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera ?

4 year old Nikon dead in the water

\015 My camera was purchased new in 2004 & has never had a problem. Suddenly it won't turn on. No power. Completely dead. Have tried changing batteries & making sure they are completely charged with no result. I like this camera & am used to it, and I spent about $800 so was hoping to get more than 4 years use out of it. 2 questions I guess: Do you think it's repairable & is it worth it even to try? THANKS!\015

Answers :

Greetings camerastew,
\015\012That is definately a large investment, and my suggestion would be to take it into a repair shop and get an estimate on repair. Once you have that information, you can make a more informed decision.
\015\012I know that at the Best Buy™ stores, you can get an estimate from the Geek Squad® department, however if you decline having the unit fixed, you will incur a 34.99 handling fee. I want to be up front about this.
\015\012You may find it is cheaper to fix the unit than replace, or you could find out if is more cost effective to make a new investment.
\015\012I hope this helps!
\015\012Thank you,

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem? Stan Wil

No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

Went into the water, about 5 feet and after that the camera wouldn't turn on. I have Stylus 1030 SW. I have had the camera for about a year. It was working fine in the water, and I would rinse it in fresh water, like they said, but this time I came out of the ocean and it turned off and stayed off. Do I need a new battery? This battery costs $39. in retail store! My battery is a year old! Please e-mail:Thanks-June

I need to know how to set the heating and water and for how long to have the water heating up for, for one person. So probably need a manual of some sort. Also my boiler is 11 years old and I have just tried to set up a british gas homecare package but they wont touch it because it is a powermax 155 and they say they cannot get the parts. What do you recommend i.e. yearly services or replace boiler or??? Below it will not let me enter my product, so I will enter anything just to post my problem?

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

Nikon d40x Hi my nikon is acting very weird ... my flash is going off but every second or third picture is either over exposed or under exposed very dark .. is my flash about to die ?? My camera is a year and a couple weeks old so Im not even sure if I have warenty. Does any know how much something like this will cost? and how long it takes to get repaired?

It sounds like your flash capacitor isn't fully charged up and your taking a photo and there isn't enough power charged up, so your photos turn out too dark. Take a photo, wait for a minute or til you see the flash icon inside the viewfinder lit up a ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I have an old Pentax S3 camera I bought in 2004, I recently ran into the A 90 screen I've now found that a lot of people have been having problems with. I found instructions on using the fwdc110p file to fix the problem but all the posts have been 2 years old and the links are dead to the file. Does anyone know where to find this file anymore? I've searched a few downloading sites and bittorrent sites with no success. Someone please help me with this, I love my camera!

Nikon D100 Hi. Out of the clear blue my af lens doesn't work. No motor sound. Can use manually. Is there a motor in the lens that needs replacing? I think its only 4 years old (inhered camera). Nikon AF 70-300mm. I don't really have the money to go to camera store without indications of what I need. How costly is the motor? Also there is no light on the internal view box. Can you help? Thanks, Mary Louisville, KY

If the lens is AF (not AF-S) there is no motor in the lens. A motor in the camera turns a screw in the lens mount to focus it. If it is easy to turn it manually, my first recommendation would be to check that you didn't accidentally bump the focus ... Nikon D100 Digital Camera

My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

Time for some "tough love"...suggest you buy one of the new Pentax point-and-shoots that are especially made for people who continually drop their cameras. This one can be dropped from 3 feet and still work. Leave the good DSLRs to the rest of us. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D40 which is coming upto being two years old. Recently I have noticed that the auto-focus will not work. If I manually focus I can still take photos but when auto is engaged it will not even try to focus and therefore will not allow me to take a photo. I have not made any changes to the settings and therefore I am concerned it is a hardware fault. The lens in question is the standard lens supplied with the camera and is the only lens I have so have been unable to check t

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras

Canon PowerShot A75 digital cmera suddenly went dead so I can no longer take pictures. Colors flash across the screen instead of the normal clear screen.
