Hi.


Nikon cool pix settings are saved into an internal memory (20 MB EEPROM I think).

The internal memory is kept alive by an internal rechargeable battery, that is recharged from the main battery.

If you leave your Nikon overnight with no main battery, or batteries have drained, then the internal battery will also drain , resetting the clock (it may drain in 6 hours depending on the camera, normally takes 12 hrs.).

If the internal battery is resetting immediately, or after few minutes, then it must be replaced.

The camera must be disassembled completely to replace the battery located on motherboard.



Nikon says that the clock battery loosing charge is normal. I quote what they say on the publication titled " The Nikon Guide to digital photography with Coolpix"

"Backup battery of the clock
The clock-calendar is powered by a separate rechargeable battery, which is charged as necessary when the main battery is installed. If the camera has been stored with the main battery removed for a long period of time, the clock may need to be reset. Once the main battery has been reinserted, the clock battery will recharge in several hours, during which time the main battery should be left in the camera."


If the clock does not work at all, and resets immediately, even when the Li-Ion batteries are fully charged, then the best thing to do is calling Nikon, at the number listed on the owners manual, stating that you did not do any improper use of the camera, and getting the fault repaired as factory defect. That is not always possible, and the decision depends on Nikon customer service.

HOW TO SET TIME AND DATE ON SAMSUNG GT-S5233A


Hi,

Try to do this for you to update the time of your Cellphone..

-Open the menu. Enter the menu by either pressing the soft buttons for menu, or usually pressing the "OK".


-Choose the option that says, "Settings" (it is mostly a gear like icon) or something that is closely related to that; it may also say "Phone Settings."



-Scroll down to the option "Phone Settings."


-Scroll down and select "Time and Date." Choosing this option will take you to the time setting page where you can change the clock settings.


-Change the clock settings by typing in the numbers, or by using the scroll keys to determine the correct time. When this is accomplished select the "OK" option by pushing the "OK" button or by the center key.


THAT's IT!!!


Please Don't forget to click on 4 thumbs up.. THANKS!!

How can I delete all pictures on my coolpix L4 at the same time?


Answer specifc to this camera as follows: With camera on, push the > button to view saved pictures, when first picture appears in the frame, push "menu" and you will see a prompt to "delete", press "OK" and follow prompts to delete "ALL" pictures. The manual for this camera does NOT provide this info, it only deals with ability to delete one at a time.

Nikon Coolpix L4 flash not working


This has happened to mine a couple of times. I cannot select flash, and the blur indicator is on most of the time.
Solution is to go into 'menu', select 'SET UP' then 'reset all'. My flash selection then works again.
Since one doesn't tend to set much up with a basic camera like this, resetting shouldn't cause any issues.
Hope this helps

Old reply, but that's exactly what it is. If you recently changed batteries, the camera reset itself, and now you have to change the date, time, and timezone for where you are.
