Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My brand new Nikon Coolpix S9500 will not charge and will not turn on. I plugged it in to charge after using it for one week on vacation and the battery drained instead of charged. When I got home the battery was dead, so I plugged it in and the light flashed and then after 4 hours, it still hadn't charged. Now, despite either leaving it unplugged or plugging it in (in the order as instructed in the manual), the camera neither turns on nor charges and now the green light doesn't flash either. HELP!!

I had this problem, and like a dunce just needed to read the directions more clearly. manual indicates that the cable needs to be plugged in by a certain order. see page 14 of the manual. can't believe that was all that was necessary to clear all my frustration!

SOURCE: Battery Dont Charge

jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

In short, it works like a charm.

SOURCE: Battery will not charge

I found this while searching to find an answer to solve my problem. It worked! Some say that it took them about 20 times... it took me about 7. Be patient and just keep trying! Hope this helps!



My NP 20 gave me the flashing red light of death and I got Casio to replace it. Then I had the same problem with my second NP 20 so I dug around for a way to fix it and I found the following advice on a site called FixYa. It worked instantly and I didn't risk ruining my battery.

I had the same problem as this.
what i did was...
i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on.
i did this about 6 times.
doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash.
after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge.
hope this helps.

I faced the same problem too. But I realised that after plugging in the adapter and connecting it to the camera, you would need to press the power button but not turn it on.

Nikon COOLPIX S5200 will not charge or come on.....almost new!!! :(


You need to return it for a replacement while it is new. Try returning it to the store for a replacement first. If they won't replace it, contact Nikon. Never try to fix a brand new item. It will void the warranty.

Cannot select the wi-fi network on


The Wi-Fi connection requires installing a Wireless Mobile Utility to the smart device prior to use. And the Utility must be On.
Compatible OSs: iOS 6.0 or later, Android 2.3 or later

The Wi-Fi connection will be disabled if:
  • The battery charge is low
  • A memory card is not inserted
  • An Eye-Fi card is inserted

You can consult the user manual for further troubleshooting at:

Flash won't retract


There is nothing you can do to fix this, it should not affect daytime photo taking.

Flash won't retract


Page 27 of the user manual says:
Lower the flash by gently pushing it down. When not taking pictures, lower the flash.
The manual is online with Nikon USA. but here is the picture of that page. See bottom of the page.

Nikon Coolpix won't charge no matter what


The internal battery, which is kept charged by the removable battery, has probably run down. Take it to a repair facility.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 battery won't charge


I have had mine for over 3 years and this just started happening. I bought a new battery and it seemed to fix the problem for about a week but is doing it again. It seems like it won't fully charge now like it formerly did!
