Question about Nikon Coolpix 4100 Digital Camera
I accidentally left my coolpix 4100 on while it was plugged into my computer (it doesn't automatically switch itself off) and the batteries ran out. i replaced the batteries and the led started flashing so the camera obviously 'knows' that the batteries have power, but when i press the on/off button nothing happens. i've tried other batteries but nothing happens. the lens is still out so thats annoying, as well as the fact that i can't use my camera :( any help would be appreciated :)

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 3700 camera which had a LENS ERROR message on display when opened.
I tried various from site ie;taking out the battery and then the memory card and then inserting the battery etc, nothing worked.
Then I tried powering on the unit and at the same time shacking it/hitting it on my thigh and couple of goes at this....... boom the shutter opened up ! Then I powered it off/on several times to test if it works and YES it works perfectly fine. Hope this helps.....

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix P4--Won't turn on!
No lights or anything?
Best I could offer at this point is check the battery contacts are clean, use a pencil eraser or a cotton bud (Qtip) moistened (not wet) with isopropyl alcohol (tape/stylus cleaning fluid) and check the battery door is properly closed...

It sounds like the lens focus is stuck. If you don't have experience in camera repairs, you should give it for a repair to your local Nikon service center or other camera service center.

I have a Intel Mac Powerbook running OS10.5.8
On a coolpix 100, the default setting is that the camera is charged by the computer through the USB cable. You need switch that OFF.
While the camera still does not show as usb device, you can access it through the Nikon transfer program AND through iPhoto
