    Same exact problem. Just turned it on today and no power at all. Made sure battery was charged, but nothing.

    I had this happen over New Years and sent it in. All of a sudden no display - nothing. With a fresh battery no less. They fixed it but just tonight it has happened again. I have liked the camera but at this point I feel they have a serious quality issue.

Im not trying to sound degrading, but isnt there a little button on the bottom right of the display that turns it on or off? I know there is on the D70 and D80, Ive never actually used a D300 myself, bu tI just thought maybe thay had a common trait.

Other than that, can you still use the rest of the camera, like taking pictures and whatnot?

How to check nikon coolpix s800 battery level


In the upper right corner of the LCD there is a small battery level indicator. When the battery is fully charged, it is all black. As the charge goes down, one side will be white and the other side black to indicate the remaining charge. If you look at item 6 on page 6 of the manual, it shows you. This link will take you to your camera's manual: http://cdn-10.nikon-cdn.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/S800cRM_EN.pdf

Refer to everything that has to do with battery. I wonder if you can see anything on the control panel. If nothing is there you battery is dead for sure.
If you can see symbols on the control panel, it could be your on on / off switch is defect.
The Battery
Check the battery level be focusing the camera and replace or charge the battery if necessary. Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced battery performance. Whenever possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking pictures on important occasions.
Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0 C (32 F) or above 40 C (104 F).
Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5 C to 35 C (41 F to 95 F) before use.
Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its performance, or prevent it from charging normally.
On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully charged before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and completely exhaust it before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool location with an ambient temperature of 15 C to 25 C (59 F to 77 F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold locations.

No LCD display, "CLOCK" flashing


Seems the camera's internal battery (different from the EN-EL3 main battery) has drained. As the manual says, you can recharge the internal battery by leaving a fully-charged main battery in the camera for three days.

If the camera continues to pester you for clock setting, you'll have to send it in for service. (Opening the camera likely voided your warranty, btw.)

Does your camera use a compact flash card? I've heard that some Nikon cameras have a problem with the flash card draining power when not in use. Try removing the card when not using and see if the battery lasts longer.

I have a Nikon coolpix L18 and can only take around 10 pics wiht it, with alkaline aa batteries, before I get the message "batteries exhausted". What can I do? Is the camer defective?


Well, alkaline batteries don't last long in a power-draining camera like the Coolpix. Try some rechargeables and keep spares fully charged.

My D80 won't power back on. while taking pictures it shut down, no LCD, no display, no response.


This may be due to a faulty battery. Make sure you change to a fully charged Nikon battery and retry.

Why cannot you return this one/ It is a fundimental fault seemingly. Doea it take pictures? Is the battery a good one- you say fully charged how do you know? Try another battery. first.
