Re: Nikon Cool Pix 5000 will turn on

Your description says will turn on..but it looks like you describe will NOT turn on.. a dead unit.. ok, i have same issue and lucky enough to have TWO of these, the second one with a very different problem. I will troubleshoot between the two and get one working, will post results back here.. preliminary web search suggests unit has a DC to DC onboard voltage converter and DOES incorporate a fuse or more.. hopefully only a fuse is blown.

NIkon cool pix 5400 will not turn on. Battery is fully charged.

A couple of possibilities. The battery is bad and not accepting a charge. Replace the battery. The battery terminals are dirty. Using cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol, clean then fully dry the metal contacts on the battery and inside the battery compartment. Before turning it back on, be sure everything is fully dry.

Nikon cool pics totally dead

The battery is most probably defect. and then,
The manual says:

Battery is exhausted.
When connecting to an electrical outlet using a Charging AC Adapter, the camera cannot be turned on.

  • Confirm all connections.
  • Off is selected for Charge by computer in the setup menu.
  • When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops when the camera is turned off.
  • When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops if the computer is suspended (sleeping), and the camera may turn off.
  • Depending upon computer specifications, settings, and status, it may be impossible to charge the battery inserted into the camera via computer connection.

So even when you think the battery is charged, it still can be empty. When a rechargeable battery is old, or not often used, it can lose its capacity, not being able to power the equipment it was meant for correctly.
To make sure your battery is good, you could try to check the voltage with a multi meter. The voltage should be slightly higher than the 3,6 Volt that is printed on the battery. like 3,8 Volt, when measured. if it is just a fraction lower than the 3,6 is is not fully charged and it will be much lower when put in a camera, after switching on the camera. When you measure 2,4 Volt, 1,2 Volt or even nothing you can be sure the battery is dead.

Best option then, would be to order a new battery. But if you know someone with a camera that has the same battery that works, ask if you can check your camera still works with a battery that is ok. because when in a rear situation it is you camera that is defective, you can save the mont for a new battery and look out for a new camera, because the batteries are not cheap.

Nikon cool pix s4100 won't charge.

Take the camera back to the place of purchase, should be under warranty and let them sort it out, at the very list they should offer a battery replacement.

Hello there, for transferring media from the memory card to your computer it is much better to remove the memory card from the camera slot and use a card reader as the operating system of your computer will detect it as new media found and you can easily drag and drop the files you want to utilize and will save battery on your camera as well.

Same Problem

Could be battery contacts. Take a pencil with an eraser. Gently rub the battery contacts both inside the camera and on the battery itself. Install the battery and try it. Best of luck.

R 19 error message,, i put full battery charged in and within a minute all the life is sucked out of battery,,, can only take 1 pix

In the D70 manual Page 200 there is a note about Electronically Controlled Cameras.
... unusual characters may appear on the control panel and the camera may stop functioning.
Usually caused by strong external static charge.
Possible solutions:
Turn camera off, remove and replace battery and turn on again.
If using AC adaptor, disconnect and reconnect.
If problem persists, press the RESET switch (you will need to set the date and time again after this).
RESET switch is a tiny button located on underside of camera body between the two screws near the USB port.
If this does not work a repair is required.

Hi I found this info on the Nikon Australia website:

"System Error" or "Lens Error" message in LCD monitor trnsp.gif Question My COOLPIX camera displays a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message. What should I do? trnsp.gif Answer Having a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message displayed on the camera's LCD monitor would generally indicate that your camera needs servicing. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with your camera (or a Nikon approved card).
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
On the other hand, a Lens Error generally means that an error has occured during the lens operation. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
  3. Turn on the camera.
If the above tips do not help, your camera must be sent to our Nikon Authorised Service Centres, there are no user serviceable parts in our Nikon COOLPIX cameras. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we will do everything to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible. Click Here for our Nikon Authorised Service Centres details.

Seems you may just have to remove and replace the battery - sort of like a Windows Restart to fix a computer problem! - this would reset your camera's memory.

Hope this helps.
