Coolpix P80 camera doesn't turn on when I plug in the data cable?

\015 When I plugin the data cable (USB cord to get pictures on my computer from the camera), I can turn on the power button and the little green light on the on/off switch turns on and the camera dings, but the screen doesn't come on, nor does it register with my laptop that there is anything connected. How can I get my pictures on my laptop?\015

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 Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

I have an M883 Digital Camera, and when I plug the USB cable into the computer and connect it to my camera to turn it on, the little green light below the "review" button blinks but the camera won't turn on.

We bought our Nikon Coolpix 8100 just before Halloween. I was in the middle of taking a picture today - my finger was halfway down on the button to focus it - and the camera went black. The lens is still out and open, as if it was turned on. Pushing the power button doesn't do anything. I plugged it into the charger - the green light blinks periodically. I am unable to get the camera to turn on or off either while it is plugged in or after I unplug it.


What it might need is to remove the power source (battery) for a few seconds 20-30. The camera is a fairly new model so it should also be under warranty. If the camera doesn't begin to operated properly after reinstalling the battery you might want t ... Digital Cameras
