A new battery perhaps What type of battery is it?

SOURCE: Nikon D70

It is actually an error message generated by your compact flash and means that the card is no longer readable. A lot of D70 owners have reported this error without being able to find another solution other than reinserting the card or changing the card to a different brand. In my D70s I use Sandisk Extreme III memory and, knock on wood, have not yet had this error. You could also try cleaning out the memory card slot and check to see that all pins are aligned and not bent.
Good Luck,

First of all, measure the new battery voltage, just to make sure it's charged.
Someone in a blog mentioned sometimes you can reset the unit by pressing the on and mode buttons simultaneously, for 30 seconds, so you might try that first.
Second thing to check is that the battery terminals, both on the new batteries, and the terminals inside the camera, are clean. Use a qtip and alcohol or a pencil eraser. Terminals and contacts oxidize over time, mainly due to humidity and condensation. Other than the battery contacts, you could be having a switch or any other electrical contact problem inside the unit. Which means, it will have to be disassembled to be fixed. These are precise, compact devices and I wouldn't recommend self repair. Other than lightly bumping it while holding the on switch, I wouldn't try anything beyond that.
You can take it to a local camera repair shop, or contact Nikon for an estimate- here's their site:
Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: reinstall firmware in nikon coolpix

Hi lal513,

Thanks for your question at Fixya,

Please find the solution to your problem as follows :-

  • Removing batteries while updating firmware , leads to serious damages to the existing firmware as it gets corrupted with a partial update.
  • Now in this case, what you need to do is to get back to the service center and then allow then to re flash the ROM with the firmware that is applicable to this camera,they will charge a minimum fees for it.
  • And you have to remember that for any device , motherboards, cameras, mobile phones, it's a prerequisite to have the batteries fully charged up or the power supply continuously on to update the firmware successfully , failure to do this might lead to the problem that you have just faced.

Hope this helps ...:) In case you have any queries , feel free to contact me.

Hi Carol,
This sounds like a problem with either the power button or the camera's electronic circuitry. I would contact Nikon Support at 1-800-645-6687 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and they will be able to help you get it repaired at one of their factory service centers.

This is a Guess. If the battery is very old the voltage may be so low that only a few things work correct. See if you can charge it. Auto Focus uses a Motor (takes some power) Taking a photo takes quite a bit of power..

You have reached the end life of the battery pack. The battery must have some minimum charge to have computer function even with the AC power pack connected. So I suggest you replace the battery pack as a solution. Any local Radio Shack store can test this battery I am told free of charge.

I have a brand new Nikon D3100. The battery was fully charged and placed in the camera. I took about 4 photos, and then turned the camera off. When I turned it back on the battery wasn't working to...

The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.

The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.

Hope this solves your problem.

Good day!

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

My Nikon Coolpix 8700 wont turn on!

Try another battery. Even though you bought a new battery and charged it doesn't mean it is not bad.

1) remove the battery and place it in the freezer. for an hour or 3.

2) charge the battery (let the battery unthaw first, don't charge the battery if it is frozen it may explode.)

-if this doesn't work you may need another battery.

The reason I suggested i5 is that one of my cameras will not work on rechargeables anymore. You might be able to order the battery you need on line. Did the camera get damp or anything while you were not using it? If so just keeping it in a warm dry atmosphere for awhile might do the trick. If it was working fine before, the batteries are the my first guess. Good luck, How very frustrating for you.

Battery Problem

Sorry this isn't a solution, but I wish my 8700 would last even as long as yours does. 2 hours, period. on or off, taking pictures or not, two hours & it's a stone dead battery. Just on the off chance it will help I'm about to upgrade the firmware to 1.3 (I don't really think it will help). After that I've decided to take the camera apart & try to find the problem or possibly just a hack that will let me turn it OFF without removing the battery. I'd as soon have a bunch of bits for the project bin as have to put up with this 2 hour battery life problem. Good luck with your problem, and if I find anything worth while I'll post back.
