Question about Nikon Coolpix 4500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nixon coolpix 4500

I have had my camera for about 4 years now and all has been fine. I have only been using the 16mb card that came with the camera. A few weeks ago while using it, the screen would not come on although I could still take pictures and download them to my computer. Because I remember the settings for deleting, I was able to delete the pictures and continue again. Then it wouldnt respond to commands-off, take pictures, etc and I could only shut it off if I removed the battery. When I put the battery back in, sometimes it would remain on. Other times it would not recognize that there was a card in it when I tried downloading pics. A couple of times the screen would come on but appear all white. All these things have not been steady but switching around accept the screen does not show me what Im trying to take a shot of. I love my camera and use it for work. I need help...:( Caron

Looks like it time has come to be retired. I fear the a repair option is not a likely route. Lack of parts, shipping costs to a repairer, inspection fees only to find it cannot be repaired. will all mount to a fair chunk of the price of its replacement By all means explain this the Nikon Technical Support Team There may be a simple answer - but I fear not to this one.

Camera goes through format routine,but card but

The 4500 uses SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is not electronically compatible with the camera. You'll have to restrict yourself to SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Storage capacity limit

Only the Camera Manual will tell you the max capacity. They do have their limits and you could a be wasting your money or even find the camera does not accept it. Check the manual thoroughly and if still in doubt put the question to the Nikon Technical Support Team.

Did the 1st card ever work? (i.e. is the camera new to you). After many uses, the memory cards need to be reformatted (thru your Setup menu). Post the make and model of the cards and we can check to see if they're compatible w/ your camera.

Image rings when using Coolpix for microscopy

Under some circumstances when using the Coolpix 4500 attached to a microscope concentric rings are visible as in the below. The COOLPIX 4500 aspherical lens surface is ground to create the ideal curves to gather rays at the focal point with an extremely high accuracy. Such minute lines are not visible in the image taken with a camera alone, however if the camera is used with a microscope, the lines become visible as the depth of field is increased due to the combined F numbers of the camera lens and microscope lenses.
