Question about Nikon Coolpix S50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera problem powering on

Nikon Coolpix model S50
Camera sometimes fails to start up. After pushing power button, green light comes on and after hearing a click inside the camera, the green light goes out. It seems like pushing on the battery/memory door on the bottom might be affecting the operation of the camera.

    camera does not turn on i bought new battery and still does not turn on is there a reset button or something

  • wlfherbs Jul 05, 2008

    My Nikon S50 won't turn on. I have to open the battery door and push down on the battery until I feel it make contact. Then the camera will turn on about 50% of the time. Its not the battery and it does the same thing with a new battery.

    I purchased a new battery and the camera still will not power on. Seems like a bad on/off switch. Should have bought a Canon.

I took my battery out, used a pencil eraser to clean off the metal area on the bottom and gently scraped it with a knife. Presto, the camera comes on without having to push down ******* the battery.

Power on green light on coolpix L18 is blinking. Why? Camera won't work.


This might not work with all cameras, but try it anyway...

Take out your battery and memory card. Put them back in with the battery being first. Try and charge.

You might still have problems charging with the USB lead to the camera. In such a case, you should buy a proper charger that you can put the battery into and charge it. Sometimes charging through the camera doesn't work.

How do I open the battery compartment on a nikon coolpix s50?


There's a small triangular latch on the back-center corner of the battery. Push this toward the back of the camera.
Refer to the illustration in the "Removing the Battery" section of the manual (page 15 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

Coolpix S50. Sometimes just won't work has a white screen with red exlamation mark and says lens error then a few hours later its fine again. Always seems to happen when I'm out in a club thought maybe it...


It sounds like there may be something blocking the lens from extending (internally. the S50 uses a zoom lens that retracts and extends sideways and a mirror to allow light through).

I cannot activate Nikon Coolpix S210 (problem with ON/OFF button)


had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.

'Lens Error'


From the manual: "Turn camera off and then on again. If error persists, contact retailer or Nikon representative."
