Hi,

If your camera is under warranty please contact the manufacturer to see if they will cover the repair, or to determine how much they will charge for the repair.

In case they are repairing it underwarranty, good for you.

However in case there is a high cost assiciated, you might want to try the following steps as a DIY fix.

1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2. Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera.

3. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels for blowing out any particles that may be in there jamming the lens.

4. Tap the side of the Camera with the palm of your hand repeatedly. Many people have reported that the issue was resolved by just doing this. So, please give it a try.

In case the issue persists, you will have to get the camera serviced or go for a new one.

The camera does not contain any charging circuitry and will not charge the battery when connected via the USB cable. In fact connecting via USB actually drains the battery faster because the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The camera comes with a separate MH-63 charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. Once the battery is charged, you can put it into the camera and try connecting it to the computer.

Better yet, don't connect it to the 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. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

There is either something wrong with the charging port or the batteries, most likely the batteries. Replace them and the new ones should charge, if they do not then it is a problem with the camera itself.

My nikon coolpix s220 just stopped powering on. i charged the battery, but that didn't help. any suggestions?


If the camera was dropped and it does not turn on with a known GOOD battery the camera must have been damaged. When you dropped it the FIRST time and it worked you were lucky. Cameras do NOT like to be dropped.

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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

My nikon coolpix s220 wont charge... do i have to have the original charger???


The S220 uses the EN-EL10 battery. The camera does NOT incorporate any charging circuitry, so connecting it to a computer actually drains the battery. In order to charge the battery, you need the MH-63 battery charger or a third-party equivalent.

If you need a charger, you can order one from your local Nikon dealer or from http://www.nikonmall.com

How to set up show battery on nikon cameras s220


The camera will show a low-battery indicator when the batteries start to run down. The only indication of a full charge is the lack of the low-battery indicator on the screen. There is nothing you can set up.
