Will not Turn On

I just got this camera as a present and I have used it for about 1 week and now it will not turn on. I kept in good condition, never dropped it, and charged the battery once.

Re: Will not Turn On

After charging the battery remove it from the camera for 24 hours and see if that helps.

You should still be covered under the Nikon Factory Warranty.

You can stop paying to try to fix this yourself by simply contacting Nikon and let the solve the problem for you. That is what they are paid to do - and this service is built into the price paid for the camera.

Contact Nikon directly at: 1-800-NIKON US (1-800-645-6687) 8AM-12AM EST, 7 days a week.

Good luck!

I have a FujiFilm S5000 and since 2 weeks the sensor seems not to be able to adjust when trying to take a picture in sunny condition. The screen shows white and pink colour with horizontal lines. I turn...

Actually it's not the sensor it's the LCD screen. I would say in the last two weeks the camera didn't change but the environment it is being used in has and is causing the camera to overheat.

Keeping the camera within these perimeters should solve your problem.

Will not turn on

Old batteries will not charge fully. Batteries left to completely discharge will most likely be useless.

Lens,not close properly

If it is your camera's time to go, there is no helping that. Most likely a grain of sand has found it's way into your camera mech. You can turn your camera on and off while banging it on the counter gently, but it is unlikely you will succeed, due to most lens parts use a sticky lithium grease for lubricant.

There could be a short in the battery contacts in your camera. You should inspect them for corrosion or oxidation.

Flashing lights

I read your posting about changing the batteries. I tried it once and it did not work. Then, I tried it again a few weeks later and the new batteries made it work. I have not tried the rechargable batteries again. I am afraid to remove the batteries I placed in the camera. I hope this helps you. I think there must be a sensor that gets reset at some point and the issue stops. Who knows. Good luck!!!

HP also suggested to reset the camera as follows:
To Reset The Camera:
1. Remove the memory card and turn on the camera.
2. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries.
3. Wait at least ten seconds.
4. Reinsert the batteries and turn on the camera.

I also found information regarding a similar problem with another model at this link:

Focus Assist Light and LCD Flash Simultaneously

The Issue:
When the HP Photosmart digital camera is placed on the dock without batteries, the AF assistance LED and LCD could blink at the same time. Explanation It seems that the super-capacitor on the camera senses the voltage supplied by either the AC adapter or batteries when they are inserted. This is more an annoyance rather than an actual failure on the device. The microcontroller (Dang) senses the voltage and sends a signal to the LCD and AF assistant LED. This is what some times is called a WAD (working as designed). If batteries are present or the super-capacitor is charged, the AC adapter will not trigger this behavior. This can be tried by inserting some batteries on the camera for 3 or 5 minutes, then remove them and place the camera on the dock. No blinking should be present.
