Question about Nikon Coolpix 5900 Digital Camera
My nikon coolpix 5900 digital camera has suddenly started to drain the Lithium Ion battery very fast. I'v had the camera for about 2 yrs and have not had this problem before. I bought 2 new batteries to make sure it was not a problem with the old battery. Same problem with the new batteries. The batteries are dead within 1 day of no use of the camera.
Is this a problem that can be fixed?
I think this was a firmware fault on some cameras. Check with Nikon to see if there is a new firmware for your particular camera. This can be downloaded free of charge and uploaded to the camera via USB.

This is either due to one of two problems.
I will start with the simple 1 first.
Go to the menu settings, and select the "S" page, at the bottom is selection for AutoOff, check the settings for this. I would suggest 1 min being about average for most users.
Come out of the menu settings, and leave the camera for 1 min it should auto power down in about that time give or take a few seconds.
If this works then that is the problem solved.
The more complex issue is, that if you camera still is affected by short auto shut downs, then you need to buy a new battery. I paid about £5 for one of ebay, so they are available.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Won't turn on.
I have run across situations where the camera has gotten some dirt or grit in the lens area and causes your described problem. The lens shutter tries to open or the lens tries to come out but is blocked by this dirt. This could be like a grain of sand or such. Have it professionally cleaned and while in the shop have the flash capacitor circuit and the battery charge circuit checked. This all will skirt the cost of a new camera so ask for an estimate before proceeding.

The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.
