Look on the side of the black holder that's part of the battery cover to identify which side is up. On the battery the + side is usually marked - if not it's the solid case side. The - side appears to be an insert in the battery.

I cant charge my nikon coolpix s6150


Hi, that happened to mine too but I found out that there was nothing wrong with either the camera or the battery. Simply put it, the charger that came with the camera is not capable of charging the battery up after it has been totally drained. Thus, I bought a charger to charge my battery separately and now it works totally fine.

Nikon COOLPIX L23 battery exhausted


ITS NOT THE BATTERIES -- check out the internet (google "nikon coolpix battery exhausted" and you'll see hundreds of people are experiencing this glitch. best fix i've found so far: remove batteries and memory card, then replace batteries and try again. Maybe firmware update works too, but this fix is not confirmed.

Replace battery cover on nikon coolpix s610


Hello.

Did you manage to remove the broken part? And have you found a replacement?

You just need to apply some force to pop it in place. The video below is NOT for Nikon, but it could give you an idea how to do it:

Nikon D3100 brand new. I put the battery in for the first time and it is telling the "This battery cannot be used. Choose battery for designated use in this camera" However this is the battery I got with...


The fault could be either defective batteries or a defective camera. All you can do is to try a full initial battery charge (24 hours) and if that doesn't work return the camera to the retailer for a refund or exchange.

Nikon D90 battery reset


Seems as if you've killed the battery. You might try charging it again.

Does the camera work with a different battery? If so, I'd just buy a new battery and toss the old one.

I have a Nikon D80. I used fine the night before, took the battery out to charge it, and the next morning...NOTHING. No power, no lights,no picture, no sound...Notheing. I checked the camera wit another...


Surprising. I can only think that the camera may have caught some condensation if you took it out from a cold place to a warm place (e.g. indoors). You can try to dry it out by putting it 24 hours in a dry box then try again. Also, make sure you are using Nikon batteries when testing it out. Generic batteries are known to die out suddenly after only a few months of use.. and especially if they are subjected to extreme cold

Hi I found this info on the Nikon Australia website:

"System Error" or "Lens Error" message in LCD monitor trnsp.gif Question My COOLPIX camera displays a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message. What should I do? trnsp.gif Answer Having a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message displayed on the camera's LCD monitor would generally indicate that your camera needs servicing. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with your camera (or a Nikon approved card).
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
On the other hand, a Lens Error generally means that an error has occured during the lens operation. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
  3. Turn on the camera.
If the above tips do not help, your camera must be sent to our Nikon Authorised Service Centres, there are no user serviceable parts in our Nikon COOLPIX cameras. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we will do everything to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible. Click Here for our Nikon Authorised Service Centres details.


Seems you may just have to remove and replace the battery - sort of like a Windows Restart to fix a computer problem! - this would reset your camera's memory.

Hope this helps.

Removing battery from Nikon Coolpix


I had the same problem and discovered that aftermarket replacement batteries may not fit as smoothly as the OEM battery. With the battery cover open, hold the camera upside down and keep giving slight tap on the top and sides, it should come out. If not, give it a few sudden jerks, while holding it upside down. The battery may slide out suddenly, so be careful to grab it in time, or do this on your bed. This solution has worked for me.
