Question about Nikon COOLPIX S9300

Open Question

My Nikon CoolPix S9300 won't charge.

I used the camera once about a year ago. The battery card was not stored in the camera. I popped it back in to charge it. It's been plugged in for a day and a half and its still deader than dead. What could be the problem?

I'm sorry but you can't use the camera as a webcam. Here is why. There is no function on the camera to stream video.
Also, the camera goes into standby mode after 30 seconds (by default). And 3 minutes after that, it shuts off completely. It does that to save batteries. Again. I'm sorry. Good webcams average between $20. to $50. usd and they are made to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

You can use a 4GB memory card in your camera, as long as it's an SD card.

If you get that message, it means you haven't formatted the card for use in that camera. You have to format the card in the camera before you use it.

Even though the solution was not what you prpbably wanted, don't let it stop you from rating it a fixya. I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can help you with anything else, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

SOURCE: I cannot activate Nikon Coolpix S210 (problem with ON/OFF button)

had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.

Hi,

There could be 3 possibilities :-

1. Bad CCD sensor. If you would be able to view old / saved images/ videos, however when you try to click new image or try to take a new video, everything is black, this is highly suggestive of bad CCD sensors. These are really common issued. In the past most brands do have a recall for the same.

2. Bad LCD panel - If you could hear the noise that the shutter ( mechanical components ) is working, however neither you could view the old images / videos nor you could view the live image / videos, then it is highly suggestive of Bad LCD panel.

3. If you are unable to hear anything, and the old and the new images / videos are black, this is highly suggestive of defective electronic circuitry.

Unfortunately, all of the above 3 would mean that this is an internal problem and needs repair.The cost of repair would exceed the camera's worth. It would be better to call Nikon and complaint the same. They might be able to offer a replacement at a less expensive price.

There is only one trick that you could follow - Pull out the SD card and the battery. Clean the battery connectors. Keep the camera in the same position for around 30 minutes. Insert the battery ( without SD card ) and see,if that works.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Froze fix


Use the factory reset procedure, or take the batteries out for a few minutes. This will reset the camera and it should be okay.

Why my s9300 will not come on


While charging, did the charger act normal? on the end the light was burning continue?
If so we have to assume the battery os charged. Then check the contacts on the battery and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny. Not coming on means not even the lens barrel moves an inch and you can't view pictures on the card and you can't change the menu.
It should really be the battery. Also make sure you did close the battery cover, because there is a little switch, checking if the door is closed. The camera won't start if it is not closed correct.
Last I hope you did not manage to revers the battery.

Camera won't turn off


The camera isn't supposed to do anything. You control the download from the computer, the camera is nothing more than a mass storage device like a disc drive.

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). 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 any photo management program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

Nikon s9300 - When I turn it on, the lense fully extends, but the screen stays black. I have to pop the battery out, then put back in for the lense to retract. Battery is fully charged and even tried


When the battery is fully charged, please put it in again. That means, if it is still in, remove it once again.
Switch it on, and even if you don't see a thing try to make a picture.
Then press the display button several times, to see if anything comes on the screen again.
If the camera does not respond after that, you should go back to the dealer, of contact Nikon.

Nikon camera battery keeps losing charge


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.
