Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S230 Digital Camera ?

My nikon coolpix s230 won't charge, it's connected to the computer, but it's not doing anything.


Answers :

Connecting the S230 to a computer does not charge the camera; instead it drains the battery as the camera communicates with the computer. You need to take the battery out of the camera, put it into the supplied charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

I have a canon power shot SD600 (around 3 years old now). When I go to download my photos on the computer it tells me (the computer) that it 'can not detect a camera connection' and to check the connection. The connection is definitely in properly but the connection button on the camera does not light up in blue (as it usually does). The battery is fully charged and can not find anything in the manuals provided regarding this failure. cheers, Maura

It won't turn on! I charge it, and the camera is no more than a year old, and yet it wont turn on. However, when it's on it's base, it can connect to my computer and turn on fine! Is it the battery?! Why has it degraded after only one year? And after it's been on the base for a while, the red light of the base starts blinking.


Mine won't turn on...unless I hit the red button, then the menu button, then repeat...the red, then the menu. When the menu comes up, it wants to reset the date/time etc. I just ignore that and hit the menu button once more and it's ready to shoot. ... Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable. I connect the camera to my computer using the USB, then after 10 seconds its says there is no device connected to the computer, and then it gives me option to cancel, retry, or continue but it usually connects automatically itself again. The only problem is that I can't do anything with pictures can't copy, delete, or view them. I'ce already tried to delete and reinstall the driver.


I would invest in a memory card reader. You can pick one up for under $20. Using a card reader allows you to avoid having to deal with drivers and such that may or may not be loaded on your PC. A card reader should work just fine for ya. Good luck ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.
