Question about Nikon Coolpix 5200 Digital Camera
My nikon 5200 is not even switching on. First i thought that d battery was low but when i put it on charge, the light of the charger did not blink. (showing dat it was fully charged). I dont know whether this is problem of battery, charger or the camera. Plz help
I have the same problem. I can only turn the camera on once and then I have to wait a day before it will turn back on. I discovered that if I take out the SD card, I can turn the camera on. Then (while the camera is on) I put the SD card back in. It's a pain in the ****, but it works.

SOURCE: blinking red timer light
The blinking red timer means that the date isn't set on your camera. Go to the set up screen and set the date. I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to take pictures, though...

You need to download the images that are on that memory card to a computer, burn the images to a CD or otherwise store them. Another, more expensive alternative is to buy a new memory card. 512MB is really pretty small, and you can buy a 2-4 GB card (400 to 800% MORE storage than your current card!) for under $20 if you find one on sale. The big concern with most people is when it comes to memory cards is "write speed". I find that in most all situations (read 99.5% of all users) this really doesn't matter and you can save a significant amount of money if you buy lower write speed discs. Write speed simply means the time it takes to download the image from the card to another source, such as a hard drive. It does NOT indicate how fast the image writes to the card, which is usually governed by the camera and buffer configuration within the camera itself.
To save the images to a computer, attach the camera with the USB cable that was provided with the camera to your laptop or computer. After attaching the cable to both, go to "My Computer" and look for a listing in removable drives that shows your camera's name. Double click onto this and you should see a folder. Double click onto the folder and select/copy all of the images in the folder and paste them into whichever folder on your hard drive you want. Once all of the images are on the hard drive (And yes, double check them before you do the next step!) you can once again select all of the images on the card and hit the "delete" button or go into the camera's menu and format the card (which is preferable). Again, ensure that all of your images recorded and can open on the hard drive before doing this.
