Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a nikon forestry pro. Have been using it for forestry work for about 10 months. Recently it just stopped working. Have replaced battery with 3 different brands. Let it dry out any moisture indoors. And cleaned off dust. Still will not turn on. Any ideas?

You won't be able to diagnose that without opening it and doing a visual inspection and then maybe follow with a continuity tester. it is likely a cold solder joint (bad connection) on the circuit board... or a broken wire going to the batteries... or just oxidation on the battery connections.

    So you're telling me I need to send the laser/hypsometer back to Nikon?

    The Nikon Forestey Pro is a rangefinder hypsometer. It takes distances with a laser and computes heights and slopes using angles. I accidentally posted this in digital cameras I guess.

I have the same problem, but there is a internal battery. It is next to the other battery. It is a 2016 3.0v battery next to the hinge.

SOURCE: Why hasn't my Nikon Coolpix L15 ever really worked?

You have to change the 'battery type' in the settings menu to match the type of batteries you're using. I hadn't used the camera in months because of crappy battery life, when I finally read the manual and found that there was a setting for either NMH or Li etc.

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.

Took battery out of working camera 4 months ago. Put charged battery in recently,but camera would not turn on. Reset with button but no change.

Do you mean your Nikon D80 battery haven't bean used for 4 months and you store it with no power? If so you battery maybe has been't damaged. Over discharge is heavy damage for Li-ion batteries. And when you store it with no power and for a so long time... You need to store it at 40% charger and at a cool but no cold place. Cold and hot are the killers of Li-ion batteries

Get the kit changed. That should not happen right out of the box, but make double sure the next time around, you charge the battery completely before using it the first time. Not doing this can cause problems.

You have a leak in a connection or maybe the boiler. There is nothing you can do but find a repair shop to fix or replace the bad part.
