Having problems with your Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

We had a splash of water come up on our D40 today and now it will not do anything. We have charged the battery to 100% and still nothing, have any recommendations?


Answers :

Dismantle everything you can from the camera (battery, memory card, lens), try to pour out as much 'free' water as you can and let it dry for a couple of days.

DO NOT PLUG THE CAMERA TO THE MAINS, COMPUTER OR ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTION until you can fire it up with the battery itself.

If your camera doesn't come to, you need to take it to the authorized dealership.

We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything. When I went back to delete the pictures off the camera card, the camera would not turn on or do anything. I tried to charge the battery but when everything is plugged in it is still totally dark. We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.

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


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

I have a Fuji FinePix A345. It is out of warranty. I put freshly-charged batteries in, take one or two pics, then get a low batter-reading, followed by the camera shutting off power.
