Question about Nikon COOLPIX L4 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon coolpix L4 won't take pictures & turns off

My camera will not take a picture and it turns itself off while I'm using it. It will take video and let me do everything else, except take a picture. Also, after putting in fresh batteries it says batteries are low, I have put in many brand new batteries. The camera has never been dropped. Help please.

I have the same camera & personally, I hate it. My camera does that all the time, sometimes, it takes a while for the picture to actually take. Try holding down the button for a while, that's what I have to do with mine. The camera sucks up all the battery energy with only a few picture takes which I really don't understand. I think that's also why it's cutting off while you're using it. Does the phrase, "Warning: Batteries exhausted" sound familar, especially right before the camera shuts off? Oh, & before I go, my personal advice to you is: Get a new camera. I don't even know why I bought mine, soon I'm getting a new one. Yay. I hope this helped you, sorry about the camera problems. Much luck! :D

I have reinstalled the Picture Project 1.7 disc for Cool Pix L4 and I still cannot get my computer to recognize the camera.


Picture Project was retired years ago, replaced by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Back up all the pictures on the card and then format the card.. Everything will be back to normal.
