Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera ?

I cannot activate Nikon Coolpix S210 (problem with ON/OFF button)

\015 My Nikon Coolpix S210 is just a little over 1 year (= warranty out, I've had it for 1 year 3 months)About 3 months ago I started experiencing problem with the camera ON/OFF button. I press the buttonto activate the camera but it does not work. I seegreen flashing light, lense will not zoom out & screen is black.I replaced battery, charged it and the same problem consisted. I contacted Nikon customer service and they told me to take out battery & memory card thenpress down shutter button for 30 seconds to reset thecamera. Then put the battery back on by pressing ON/OFF button. That did not work either. Then just2 weeks ago I turned on the camera and it worked.But after shutting it down again, the same green flashing light came on and the camera hadn't worked since. What could be wrong with my digital camera?\015

Answers :

Had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.

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. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged
