Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Nikon S710. The camera appears to lock up and the only way to reset is to remove the battery. When the battery is reinserted the lens retracts. There does not seem to be a reason for the lockup. Has anyone else reported the error?

Shows err on displaycant take picture


This message covers a wide range of problems and when it does appear, the camera locks up until you turn the camera on and off again. But this error indicates a problem(s) ranging from poor / dirty mating electrical contacts between camera body & lens (this inhibits communications between the two); to a shutter malfunction. It is pretty common for it to be dirty contacts on the lens mount opening on the camera body or on the lens itself. When this is the cause of the error, it is almost always fixed with a good deep cleaning. But it can also be more serious, so it doesn't hurt to contact Nikon if you are worried.

Try these suggestions from Nikon first:

  • Remove all accessories from the camera.
  • Install a freshly charged battery into the camera.
  • If your Nikon camera offers resets such as the two-button reset or a hardware reset please follow those instructions provided in the product manual.

Grab a copy of the manual here. Good luck!

Windows XP will not recognize Cooxpix S710


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow...


A voltage test alone cannot determine if the battery is good unless you can have the current rating of the battery tested. So if the camera comes on after a charge it seems that the battery is not retaining current for the camera to boot on.
It will be good to check the current factor with an external load so as to confirm if this is the fault of the battery. If not there is shorting or high draining of voltage in the electronic circuit of the camera which needs a serious check.

My nikon coolpix s710 makes a buzzing tone and says "lens error" in red on a white screen when I turn it on. The lens itself appears to not be fully out nor fully flat against the camera. Is there any way...


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first, even try a feash set but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

I need a master reset, hard reset, firmware reset for my Nikon S710. I try with "erase all" but configuration is not equal to the first time use my camera. I need reset my camera. Thanks.


Two methods...scroll to "reset" in the setup menu and follow the on-screen instructions. -or- Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
