SOURCE: It doesn't switch ON many times though the battery is charge

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...

SOURCE: out of memory nikon coolpix 5200 w512mb memory

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.

Camera said battery exhausted when i went to take pic so I plugged it in to charge. light blinking but even though it looks like it is charging I cant turn it on to close lens

Normaly the lens would go in, as soon as the battery runs low.
Perhaps you should wait till you unpluged the camera.
Try to charge the battery in the external charger. Then after replacing the battery everything should work fine.

Camera will not charge, shows blinking orange but will not turn on... when it does, it's to a "battery exhausted" screen or the lcd display with a low battery symbol. Also doesn't show on...

It could possibly be the battery or the charger itself.Try purchasing the charger it self.Use the old battery to see if it will charge it. If it does not charge you may have to purchase a new well.

My nikon 775 just won't start even after i put in a new battery (i thought it was a battery problem). any clues on what i should do before i retire if permanently?


The Nikon Coolpix 775 can be powered using a EN-EL1 rechargeable battery or a disposable 2CR5 type battery (Panasonic, Duracell, Maxell etc). If you are trying to use an EN-EL1 you may want to try using a 2CR5 - this would prove if the battery charger you are using to charge the EN-EL1 battery is working correctly.

You can also try and check if the contacts inside the battery compartment are clean - the camera is quite old and there will normally be some dirt deposits after that length of time.

Hope this helps.

The plastic cover on my Coolpix 5200 has broken

Is that the battery compartment, use rubber bands to hold them together!? If this is the problem, I am thinking of a solution that works yet! If you have problems with that back contact put aluminium foil on the contacts.
