Question about Nikon COOLPIX P4 Digital Camera
How much it will cost me to fix white plastic in a slot between card slot and battery of nikon coolpix p4. thanks
Ok, I Joe McGee'd the issue -- take a small piece of tin foil -- make it fit the hole area. Insert it and poke it into each open "port" on both side -- pack it in with a pin --
Mine is working fine now -- not sure how long, but it works.

If you feel technically inclined you can open the camera carefully and take it apart to the point where you can remove the upper circuit board ( NOTE 1: make a careful note of every screw you remove since they are different size and need to be used exactly in the same order) and then the small black plastic assembly above the circuit board below, you can see the defective switch on top of the 2nd board, remove the plastic part of the switch until you see the bare 2 contacts on the circuit board, solder a small piece of wire to bridge the contacts, now very carefully reassemble the camera observing the exact order of screws used, see NOTE 1. If everything is back in order insert the battery and the camera should work now.
note: should you not be inclined to do this work and want to sell the camera as is for spare parts I am interested, drop me a note at: cocnutray at yahoo.com. A Nikon repair shop will charge between $80 to $110 FOR THIS TYPE OF REPAIR, THEY WILL ACTUALLY REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE MICRO-SWITCH. HOPE THIS HELPS :-)
