Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

"File contains no image data"

\015 My camera works great about 80% of the time; however, sometimes it will randomly corrupt files on my SD card before I have the chance to upload it to my computer. It is very sporatic, but extremely annoying. I never know when the picture I want is going to be corrupted the next time I turn on my camera. It is always fine at the time I take the picture, but the next day if I try to review the photo, the file says "file contains no image data". What should I do?!\015

Answers :

Try a new SD card. SD cards do fail.
The socket inside the camera maybe no good - bad connections.
The camera may have liquid damage - this causes all kinds of weird issues.
I try the cards in my computer reader. If they can be used all day there (I load and unload stuff randomly all day to test and then put the card in a drawer for a few days and check what I loaded later), the fault is likely the camera.
