    In messing around with the camera, I discovered that if I hold the "play" button, the camera turns on! In order to turn it off, I have to open the battery door. Seems very weird.

Hi Carol,
This sounds like a problem with either the power button or the camera's electronic circuitry. I would contact Nikon Support at 1-800-645-6687 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and they will be able to help you get it repaired at one of their factory service centers.

I had the same problem while charging the camera with the cradle. I tried charging directly with the camera and it looks good. Problem seems to come from the cradle itself. Phil

SOURCE: My Kodak EasyShare DX4530 camera dock not charging batteries.

There was an issue with the 4000 series and the NiCd batteries I remember that had to do with the contacts in the camera.  The charging circuit is in the camera so you have to make sure that the battery contacts are clean, both on the battery and in the camera.

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.

Nikon Coolpix S8200 how do you move pictures from the internal memory to an SD card?


Hi Dee,

In theory (and assuming that you have put an SD card into the camera)...

Push the playback button (a triangle pointing to the right inside a rectangle) and then the MENU button.

You should be able to see a tab that has the same icon as the playback button. Use the direction buttons to go to that tab and then choose 'Copy'.

Now you should have two options - choose the one that has the icon with "IN" with an arrow pointing to an icon representing an SD card by pushing the OK button.

Now you can choose to copy either some or all of the images from the internal memory to the SD card.

In case you need anything else, the manual is available on Nikon's website here http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17484/~/user%27s-manual---coolpix-s8200---guide-to-digital-photography

It has pictures as well, which might make things easier (page 52 of the English version).

Good luck!

My nikon coolpix 5700 will not turn on, i have bought new battery for it and it just won't turn on. what do i do?


Pleaseremove the Battery from the camera and give a look inside the batterycompartment. Use a spot light & make sure that place are clean , not rusted& the battery connector pin are not bend or broken. After that insert thefully charged battery and try to turn on. If its not turn on then its confirmthe camera internal power supply unit is faulty. For few reason this problemstarted.1. Theconnectivity cable from camera to Circuit board damaged or disconnected.OR2. Thepower supply transformer stop working & need to replacement.OR3. turnon button connection may disconnected.

After visual checking by the technician is possible to say which part isfaulty.
For the confirmation you need to visit a camera repair store. With outvisual survey technician can't confirm you which one of them is faulty. Thankyou.

My little buddy won't turn on, it's charged, plugged into computer. green light won't come on at all. I held the power button on for 10 -15 sec with no response.


I have 2 of these devices. Try using a cellular phone charger with the same plug at the end and plug it in. I have waited 5-10 minutes after doing this and they have come back to life and turn on. Maybe it will work for you.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.
