Question about Nikon COOLPIX P90 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Coolpix P90 shows nothing on display and in viewfinder

Please help!! I'm on holiday and my brand new P90 just stopped working. I was in the middle of taking pictures when all of a sudden the picture went black and whatever I do it stays like that now. Everything else seems to work on the camera, it even acts like there was no light at all and on the automatic mode it takes pictures with slow shutter speed to compensate for the darkness. I'm in the middle of my holiday and I'm really desperate to get it working.
As I said the camera is brand new, maybe 2 weeks old. Never been dropped or damaged, and it stopped working while I had it in my hand without warning. I'd appreciate any help.

Coolpix p5000 viewfinder does not react to zoom


So from what I read her I think you can't use the viewfinder. It was the reason why I bought a powershot G9, a viewfinder. But on my camera, the viewfinder can't be used anymore, because of a mechanical problem. While zooming, what you see through the viewfinder stays the same. I don't think of giving the camera to a repair shop, because the camera still makes perfect pictures. And yes I would love the view finder to work like it used to be, but I leave it.
If your camera is still in warranty time, please contact a Nikon certified service centre immediately. If you have to pay for it, think twice and start saving for a new camera, if you still can make pictures.

RESET ALL Button


I'm convinced you already did read the user manual. There are three things you can reset:
1. User settings. In menu mode P, you can undo all the settings you made. Page 69.
2. Reset all settings. Page 151 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset all. All settings will be restored to factory settings.
3. Reset file numbering. Page 154 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset file numbering.
In the same menu is also the view firmware version. Yours should read Coolpix P90 Ver.X.X .
The latest update of firmware for the P90 is 1.1 Great chance your camera came with that revision already. If you registered your camera with Nikon, they will inform you when a new firmware is released.
Really, there is nothing more you can reset on the camera.
So if something is wrong, it can't be helped with the reset you have in mind, because that reset does not exist.
If you want the firmware 1.1, goto Nikon USA and support. Everything you want is there.

How to turn a Coolpix P90 date and time imprint on


The camera will not deface your photos by scrawling a bunch of numbers across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are automatically stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Sounds like your image stabilizer got damaged by the fall. You'll have to get your camera serviced by an authorized Nikon service center.

View image files on my P90 display


Not really. Most cameras, including the P90, are designed not to show images not captured on that device (or at least the same model device). If it's a paper map, you could always try to photograph it. Photographing something off a computer screen is a little harder.
