Does the camera still work after you place the batterys back in? This would indicate a problem in the power switch area, maybe the switch is stuck.

I would recommend haveing it checked by a repair company or nikon directly.

Replay will give a WARNING NO IMAGES. This is confusing. I can think of nothing to do. Turn it off off remove Batteries. Put batteries back in an CHARGE IT... Make sure it is FULLY CHARGED. Then Remove from charger and turn on and take a photo Does REPLAY WORK?

Nikon transfer doesn't see coolpix 990 on macair

And you did install the ViewNX2 software, that came with your camera? Because that disk also should have the MAC drivers. You could check with Nikon, if they have new drivers for the MAC air, or perhaps they have bug reports?

Nikon coolpix 990: i can not transfer picture from coolpix 990 to PC

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 E990 has a bad on/off

Being practical, it sounds like it is time for a new digital camera as the cost for repairing your 990 would not be worth it. I saw a used one going for $65 on AMAZON A repair would probably be double that cost.

Some amazing advances in digital photography have become available since your Coolpix 990 was introduced. I can't think of a better time to be looking for a digital camera with all the "Black Friday" deals about to be revealed. Since you are a Nikon user, may I suggest the Nikon D40. I do own this camera and it works very well, and won't break the bank too much Plus you can purchase extra lenses to make it a better camera when you can afford to.

I hope this helped and Good Luck!

Battery door and latch broken

Have used a 5-cent nylon cable tie for years on our CoolPix 990 and it never has failed, and still allows for battery changes. Looks a little funny to some, but is very functional. Don't know if your camera's design is similar enough for this to work, but it may worth trying.
