No power the camera stopped operating, and when freshly charged battery was installed it still had did not turn on. When putting the battery in, noticed that the battery & charger have 4 contact slots/posts - but the camera has only 3 contact posts. Is that normal, or could 1 of them broken off? If normal, what else could be the problem? Absolutely love the camera & want to have it fixed. Please help. Phil

Battery Cover Broken. The spring contacts for the batteries push the cover away from the body. The retaining lugs on the cover seem to be distorted or broken. Camera works OK if i bind sellotape around the body to hold the cover in place. (Not convenient and doesn't look good.)Can I have the cover replaced or can I get a new cover myself and fit it? How difficult?

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

Charging battery the battery died when in use and when we placed it on the charger the red light flashes instead of staying solid red and does not charge the camera. Other functions on the cradle work. I tried removing and reinsertting the battery and checked the contacts and they are clean. the contacts on the charger are also clean. I down loaded the pictures on it thru the cradle so that seems to be working

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut
