Nikon Coolpix 4500

I bought this camera few year back and was working very well. One day I could see the green button next to the on switch blinking, thought it might have been a weak batterie. I charged the batterie, tested it, installed it back into the camera; however it does not start at all. Any suggestions, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Vic

Re: Nikon Coolpix 4500

What type of battery is it? However general advice re batteries is as follows remove battery/s and with the eraser at the end of a pencil, polish the contacts at the base of the battery chamber. Do the same with cover. Do the same with the battery contacts. Reinert the batter - ensuring it is the correct way round the + contact to the + symbol and - to the -symbol. Close the lid and switch on No luck Open the lid and if the contact/s are in the lid fit a piece of foil over the contact, and if two contacts make sure it is 2 pieces of foil and not allow them to cross connect. Close the cover them try- no Luck? Press the cover in -Still no luck Try new/fresh/recharged batteries. Still out of luck Check out the charger if that is part of the equation . Still out of luck If the camera is more than a year or so old time to look for a new camera- likely repair costs will be prohibitive- if parts are available- and the possibility of racking up costs in shipping and inspection fees only to find a no parts/repairability possibility is not worth contemplating.. Best start afresh

Nikon COOLPIX S5200 will not charge or come on.....almost new!!! :(

You need to return it for a replacement while it is new. Try returning it to the store for a replacement first. If they won't replace it, contact Nikon. Never try to fix a brand new item. It will void the warranty.

The problem is likely to be in SD card
This problem mostly comes with SD cards which have lock switch, your card have no switch at all so using a card reader, format it and put back in camera, hope it works if not it should be in warranty, avail your warranty option and replace it immediately.
Good Luck

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70

Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera Problem

I believe this is the issue that Nikon is repairing at their expense. You can find the advisory on the Nikon website. Here is some of the text from that advisory:

It has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

To obtain complimentary service for cameras affected by this advisory, please click the link below to download and print the Service Return Form. The Service Return Form provides detailed return instructions.

The Frequently Asked Questions button at the bottom of this page offers more information about this advisory and, should you have more questions, also provides information about how to contact Nikon.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.

BTW, I sent my E5700 to Nikon a couple of years ago -- for this same problem. They repaired and cleaned my camera -- and had it back in my hands within 7 days.

I hope this helps!
