Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

SOURCE: Hi, My Nikon Coolpix S3000 flash

Sounds like you somehow put the camera in "airplane" mode which keeps the camera from interfering with the electronics on an airplane. Change the mode.

This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

SOURCE: Can I charge Coolpix S210 via USB cable and wall outlet?

No. In order to keep down the size and weight, the camera does not include the circuitry needed to charge the battery.

Make sure to shut the battery door! I had the same problem. The only way to access the a/v out is to open the battery door but you must shut the battery door or it won't charge

How do you charge a nikon coolpix s3000?


It comes with a wall jack that powers the included USB cable. Plug the USB cable into the wall jack and into the camera to charge. You can also charge from a PC if you connect the USB cable to the PC instead of the wall jack.

Hi My digital camera the Nikon coolpix s3000 kept flashing batter exhausted but it wont charge by the computer. How do i fix or charge my camera?


Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries, especially if you're going through a hub. Try a different USB port if one is available. Otherwise, plug the supplied AC charger into a wall outlet and use that.

Can I charge a COOLPIX S3000 directly from a PC via the USB lead supplied?


Yes, as long as the computer's USB port puts out sufficient current. Not all USB ports do so. Make sure you're connected directly, not through a hub.

When i plugged it in for the first time to recharge battery, nothing happens - no flashing green light - I left it plugged in anyway but it still did not charge Coolpix S3000 EN-EL10 Li-ion battery...


I faced the same problem too. But I realised that after plugging in the adapter and connecting it to the camera, you would need to press the power button but not turn it on.
