Question about Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Drains batteries I bought my camera about a year ago and it worked great for a long time and I took many great pictures with it. Then one day I went to turn it on and it wouldn't come on so I changed the batteries. Now it will take like one picture with brand new batteries then it shuts off because it says the batteries are exhausted. I bought a Nikon because I've had wonderful SLR Nikon's in the past so whats up with the digital? Is this a common problem?

Re: drains batteries

If its out of warranty buy a new camera with a different make,its the only thing large companies understand---------eventually.

Re: drains batteries

I have the same problem with mine..seems to be a common problem. I called Nikon and they said to send the camera in and they would take a look and let me know the cost of repair. Unfortunately my one year warranty is up, if your's is not I suggest you take care of this ASAP.

MY OLYMPUS SP 500UZ constantly kills batteries...any ideas? I can't go even an hour without replacing batteries most days.

The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion battery. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great.
Good Luck

My camera won't turn on either....

Either the lens is out of alignment, or the CCD or worse has gone defective. Either way it sounds like it may be worth it to just purchase a new camera. You do always have the option of repair as well.

Camera wont turn on

I actually fixed mine... please read all instructions b4 making actions...
i dont know how but ill tell u wat i did. (brace urself.. i will rambling a bit with unnecessary details, but it may help u... SO
i went to target... where i bought the camera and

1. bought a new battery b/c other forums said its the battery thats deffective.... This didnt help because i put the new battery in and it did the same thing.

2. i cleaned the new battery with a q-tip (the 3 metal parts.. and the inside of the camera where the metal parts connect) This did not work either

3. Clicked it to FAVORITES cuz i knew it was able to review pictures... i clicked menu and i reformatted the Month day and year and time (because it said it was wrong)... that didnt help...

4. finally... i decided this may work like the iPod.. so i held down the ON/OFF button while holding down the Time/Ascending Folder button (its in the circular panel where OK button is ... it is the button under OK on the circular panel) ... and eventually that green blinking light kept blinking... and all of a sudden i the monitor was showing picture again .. i took a picture of myself... deleted it... went back to camera mode... turned off the camera turned it back on... and its back to normal....

4- 1/2. I but back in my old battery... and it works like normal

IN CONCLUSION.... maybe its not ur battery. .so b4 u go out and spend 29.99 onn a new rechargable... follow my instructions and maybee it will work for u too!!

Cyber-Shot DSC-S500

We had similiar problems with ours until we started making sure the camera was kept warm when it was shut off. For some reason, it and the batteries don't like the cold...we were able to extend the battery life if we kept it covered when we weren't using it.
