The camera itself doesn't have a battery. If you have a light meter in the finder however, then the battery for it is in the finder itself. Press the button the back on the left side while at the same time, push the lever over on the finder. That will release the viewfinder.

Look underneath and you will see the battery cap. Unscrew that and you'll see the compartment. If it is an old FTn finder, then it will likely take the mercury batteries that are about 1.35V. They don't sell those anymore as mercury is illegal in consumer batteries, but if you do a search on eBay for 1.35V WEIN cells you should be able to track down replacement batteries.

You could put Duracell PX625 batteries in, but they ar 1.5V and thus will give inaccurate meter readings.

How can i open the battery door of nikon coolpix l3


Most camera battery compartments have "raised lines" on the cover. They usually suggest that you put your finger or thumb on that surface and push with a sliding motion to open the cover. Again, there are many different models, but the Coolpix I have seen have that kind of opening device. Hope this helps!

Display screen not light up


Are yo using a stock Nikon battery or an aftermarket brand?? Nikons cameras are all famous for their batteries not staying in their compartments tight which means your battery in not getting a good, solid connection. Open the battery compartment and put a tiny piece of folded paper on top of the battery (on the end where you close the door, not the side with the contacts) and then carefully close the lid, this will create more pressure on top of the battery making a stronger contact. Hope that helps.

How do I remove the battery out of My NIkon D60?


Open the battery cover by sliding the latch toward the center of the camera and flipping the lid up. Holding the other side of the camera, lightly slam the end with the open battery compartment against the cupped palm of your other hand and the battery should slide out a little. Grasp the battery and pull it out the rest of the way.

How do I open the battery compartment on a nikon coolpix s50?


There's a small triangular latch on the back-center corner of the battery. Push this toward the back of the camera.
Refer to the illustration in the "Removing the Battery" section of the manual (page 15 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

Battery compartment won't open?


Push the cover toward the back of the camera and then toward the end, just as the arrow indicates, then the end of the cover nearest the end of the camera will swing open. Follow the illustration in the "Insert the Batteries" section of the manual (page 12 in my copy).

My nikon 775 just won't start even after i put in a new battery (i thought it was a battery problem). any clues on what i should do before i retire if permanently?


Hi

The Nikon Coolpix 775 can be powered using a EN-EL1 rechargeable battery or a disposable 2CR5 type battery (Panasonic, Duracell, Maxell etc). If you are trying to use an EN-EL1 you may want to try using a 2CR5 - this would prove if the battery charger you are using to charge the EN-EL1 battery is working correctly.

You can also try and check if the contacts inside the battery compartment are clean - the camera is quite old and there will normally be some dirt deposits after that length of time.

Hope this helps.

How to open battery door to recplace battery?


On the bottom of the camera you'll find a plastic tripod mount and the battery compartment. The door covering the battery compartment is fairly sturdy, and it has a locking mechanism. As you can see, the Coolpix 4600 and 5600 use two AA batteries.

The little clip on the battery cover on my Nikon Coolpix 4300 has broken. I see I can buy a new one online, is it worth it?


Mine has broken as well. It appears this clip is just to keep the battery from falling out as you open the battery door. It will function perfectly fine without the clip. Just be careful not to drop the battery when you open the battery compartment.

Hope this helps,
