    Thanks for the quick reply! I reset to factory setting and tried to take a pic and set camera to fill flash, still no luck.

    Where do I send the camera in for service, I have looked through my manual and cannot find an address?

Did you try to access the flash mode of the camera and turn on the fill flash then try to take a picture? If the flash doesn't go then and your batteries are strong, then it will likely need service.

Make sure you put it on FILL FLASH and not on auto. Depending on the ISO the flash may not always fire in the auto mode.

Nikon COOLPIX S51 Digital Camera Charge usb


The S51 does not charge via the USB. Connecting the camera to a computer merely drains the battery faster, since the camera has to expend power communicating with the computer (even if it's only to say it has nothing to say).

The S51 comes with an MH-62 charger, which plugs into a wall outlet. This allows you to charge one EN-EL8 battery while using another in the camera.

If you need a charger, you can order one from Nikon at

or a third-party one for about half the price at

Simple problem: how di i turn the flash off on the nikon coolpix


Press the flash button (Up on the multiselector). This gets you a menu with five choices: Auto, Auto with red-eye reduction, Off, Fill flash, and Slow sync. Select the one you want (eventually, you're going to want to turn the flash back on) and press OK.

My Nikon COOLPIX S51 will not turn on.


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

After downloading pics to my computer, my camera, a Nikon Coolpix S51 will not turn on and I only have a black screen. Any solution to this?


1St of all what OS are you on vista?
Did you turned of the USB connection first?
It may have erased the EEEPROM on your cam leaving you with a small brick to put on top of papers.

Transfer pictures from my Nikon, Coolpix S51


Hi!

Try to plug into a different USB port. If that does not help then go to Control panel->systems-> hardware tab-> device manager->and now try to see if your Camera appears under the options listed (would be under Scanners and Camera, Click on every + sign to see)

Do rate the solution.
Thanks
