Question about Nikon Coolpix 4200 Digital Camera
After two years of perfect functioning, all of a sudden, the camera will not operate with the USB cable connected. The power light does turn "on", but the lens doesn't open, the screen in back remains dark, and the Windows program does not pop open. The camera works perfectly without the USB cable connected. I can take pictures just fine. I have search the manual and followed all the steps on page 135 for trouble shooting. I have completely recharged the battery. Would a two year old battery just be starting to go bac? I have not ever replaced the battery. It operates the camera OK still.
It's a long shot but it might be a problem with the cable itself, or it could be a problem with your USB ports on your PC, not supplying enough power.

Please read this carefully and see if you are doing everything correctly. Also you need to connect camera to power source. And use the Original USB cable that came with camera.
Connect the camera to your computer with the dedicated USB cable so that they can communicate. You can connect the camera while your computer is running.
