Why my coolpix s4300 will not charge

How old is the battery in the camera? Most rechargeable batteries will eventually lose their ability to charge. Usually one cell of the battery fails and the battery never reaches full charge. If the battery is more than a year old, replace it. The Coolpix S4300 uses the EN-EL19 and suggested retail price of $41.

If you have tried a new battery, I would suspect a problem with the charging port. That isn't something I recommend fixing yourself.

I hope this helps.

Won't hold charge so need new battery and would like to know where and how much for a replacement

The Nikon 8800 uses the EN-EL7 battery. One source for the battery is the manufacturer, but they want about USD 66 for one.

Bought a Nikon Coolpix S3000 (orange) for my daughter after Christmas. It just stopped working one day; wouldn't charge, no lights or come on. The battery it came with is a Nikon lithium ION Battery...

Read page 16 of the manual. Do not use any other charger with this camera. Are you sure you have the battery inserted correctly? When trying to charge, does the green light blink? If so, when it stops blinking and turns off, the battery should be fully charged. Do not attempt to turn the camera on while the charger is trying to charge the battery.

My nikon coolpix 8400 won't turn on, I took out the memory card to develop some pictures then I put it back in and then the camera wouldn't turn on all of sudden,it has never done this before! do you...

Make sure the battery is fully charged. If it isn't then charge it up and hopefully your problem is solved. If it is fully charged take it out of the camera for a minute or so then put it back in. Try turning the camera on.

It does not charge, where can I buy a new one?

There's nothing wrong. The camera isn't supposed to charge batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries then you must charge them using a separate charger.

I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.

There is a slight possibility that it's a memory card problem. Try another memory card, or format this one. You could also try to dry the contacts with a dry fabric.

If it doesn't work, send it for service.
