Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 8700 Digital Camera ?

My photos will not upload to my or any computer. I downloaded new drivers, purchased a new usb cable and still nothing. I spent close to $500 for this camera about 7-8 years ago. Is it worth getting repaired?


Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Dropped camera The camera, approximately 3 years old, was dropped from a sitting position. The zoom lense is extended and will not close. When the on/off button is pressed the small green light to the right on top of the view screen flashes and that is all. I wonder, is it worth trying to get it repaired?

I'd like to set my Stylus 790SW back to default settings in hopes that my video feature will work. Right now the video doesn't record. It's just a picture. I've been messing with this camera for 4 hours and cant get this thing back to original settings. Is there a magic trick? If I send this to Olympus to be looked at, it will be it's 3rd trip since to the New York repair shope since I bought it 2 years ago.

Hi, I have an Orite My-Cam PC Camera MY-352P. I have installed the CD onto my computer but all I get is a black screen when I go to "AMCAP" Preview (ticked). How do I get the camera to start please? I bought it a couple of years ago and couldn't get it to work, but now have a new computer and would like to get it going. I bought two of them at the time and gave one to a relative, hers works fine. Regards, Fiona in New Zealand

Thank you and look forward


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or ... Canon IXUS 860 IS Digital Camera

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not. I sent it to Canon repair who wanted to charge me more than it was worth to repair but that was before they even started to analyse the problem. I decided to buy a brand new 20d. Put in the battery and the CF card and exactly the same thing has happened. I can get the cameras to come on but when I press the buton the flash jumps

I have an Olympus E-510 which is just two years old. The camera went completely dead on me with no notice. I brought it to a camera repair store to see if they could find out what the problem was. We tested the battery and it was fine. I then brought it to a camera repair specialist who told me that it was the circuit board. He wouldn't repair it because he said it wouldn't be worth it. Is it worthwhile sending in to Olympus to get a quote only to have them say the same thing or should I j


Olympus will charge you for the quote since they have to disassemble the camera to determine the problem. After paying them $100-150 for the estimate, do you still want to come up with the rest for the repair? ... Olympus Camedia D-510 Zoom Digital Camera

My Dimage Z6 (which has 6 megapizels and an optical zoom x 12) which I bought about four years ago is fine but needs a new memory card reader, does anyone know where to get one as I can't use the camera without it. I don't really want to buy a new camera but may have to. As Konica are no longer in business I understand spare parts are thin on the ground. Thanks Karen

I'm using a Canon PowerShot A570IS, and am getting only 20 to 30 photos from fully charged Sanyo AA HR6 2000mAh batteries. I'm using the Sanyo Ni-MH quick charger that was sold along with the batteries. What do I need to do to get back to the 200 shots per battery set that was common when the camera was new -- about 3 years ago. Thank you for any pointers.

I have an Olympus D-460 Zoom 1.3 megapixel which I've had about a year. I bought it used and it was working fine up until about a week ago. Whenever I snapped a picture the button seemed to get stuck and nothing would happen and also the flash wouldn't go off. I would have to close the lens and re-open it again to get it working. Do you think that maybe the batteries I'm using are too weak? Let me know. Thanks.


Yes, you are right. The batteries have gone out of power for sure. I had a similar problem with my cam sometime before. The battery actually doesnt gets 100% discharged. Itworks whenever you repower the cam. But when taking a picture it just needs mo ... Digital Cameras

I have a Kodak M1063 that has never been dropped or abused. I have had it for a couple of years and it has worked flawless. A couple of weeks ago it started malfunctioning as it would open the shutter and then close it immediately. I thought that maybe it was time for a new battery and I bought one and charged it. The camera still does the same thing. It powers up...opens the shutter then close Immediately. please advise

Hello - I purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-T265 about a year ago in England. (I recently moved back to the US and all my belongings are in transit somewhere between here and England.) I went up to Mount Evans a few weeks ago, and the viewing screen of the camera just blanked out - the top 1/2 inch of the screen is still present, but the majority of the screen is blank, with a few vertical "lines". Can you tell me how I can get help repairing it? Is there anything I can do to trouble shoot it?

We have a CoolPix L3 that is not very old nor has it been used (and or misused); perhaps 14 months old. Serial No. 30649827. The telescoping lens has tended to get stuck in a closed position. After installing FRESH new batteries, I gently tapped the camera body against my other hand and the lens opened but continued to move in and out. Sometimes it would stay open but not at its maximum position. Furthermore a message was displayed; LENS ERROR.What do you suggest we do. Is it repairable?


The lens has to be unlocked, thereby meanig that we need physically open the camera and check the three rollers which control the lens movement inside the camera. ... Digital Cameras

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time
