Question about Nikon Coolpix 950 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera turns off in "play" mode

This Nikon Coolpix 950 has been sitting in a drawer for a number of years. I have replaced the batteries, and am able to take images, but when I change the mode to "play" -- there's nothing showing on the monitor. It sounds like the camera is switching off. Also, after taking an image, when I depress the thumbnail icon [the rectangle with 6 squares] the display freezes for only 3 seconds, rather than the 10 noted in the manual.

I'm using the old 64mb card that was in the camera, but have deleted all the old images.

The problem probably is not the camera but the memory card. It 'happened to me, try replacing the memory card or clean with degreaser spray the pins on the card and, if you can, clean the contacts inside the camera (with caution).

P err when turning on camera 950 coolpix


Hi Patricia,
http://cdn-10.nikon-cdn.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/cp950rm.pdf
The link is to the manual for your camera in case you lost yours. I checked the error messages listed and there is nothing shown. However, your camera has three exposure modes (see page 18 in the manual). You will notice that the Program Mode is identified as the "P" mode as it is on all digital cameras. The message may be telling you that there is something wrong with that mode of operation. For an experiment, change your camera's exposure mode to A or S and see if it functions correctly. If that solves the problem your camera will be usable. If it does not, I would normally recommend that you send it to Nikon for service, however you have a very old obsolete model and it will probably cost you more to have it repaired then it will to buy a new camera. The prices have come way down for allot better equipment since you bought your 950. Good luck.

My Nilon Camera does not responds when I insert


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Lock up


Zoom failure suggests zoom motor stalled - no repair Un able to take photos- main circuit failure. Checxk all the ovoise things Battery state- is it goog and delivering full power. Have you set it to the Photo mode or is it stuck in some other function. Get hold the the manual and do a thorough check of all functions. There is usually a FULL manual in PDF format on the supplied CD.
