Nikon digital camera malfunction

Bought a nikon coolpix s51 digital camera in november 07 and for the last three months everytime I go to use it it tells me to format the memory card which has been formatted numerous times. went to purchase new memory card and sales associate told me that it was the camera not working properly and replacing the memory card would not fix the problem. Bought a two year extended warranty for the camera and printing dock.

    When I turn the camera on it goes to Date/Time set up. I set the Date/Time and then I can't get it to do anything else.





    Thanks Dora

    i have the same problem with the camera telling me to format the card. I have an EXTREME III 2GB SanDisk card and it's supposed to be super fast so that I can take more pictures in a shorter time frame. The first 6 moths with the camera that was definitely the case then one day the camera tells me FORMAT the card. I've tried formatting the card via the camera numerous times nothing works. So i have a SD slot on my PC and figured maybe formatting the card via PC would help. NO such luck. Each pic takes like 45 seconds to a minute to process before i can even take another pic. And after every pic it tells me to FORMAT the Card. I'm ready to throw this camera out the windor after only a YEAR.

Hey jackie jean,
If the two year extended warranty you are talking about is a performance service plan purchased at a Best Buy™ store then you could bring the camera into a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store, and they should be able to send it out for service at no charge to you. I am assuming you formatted the memory card in the camera, but if this is not the case and you have formatted the memory card using your computer then I would suggest formatting the memory card in the camera. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Nikon COOLPIX S51 Digital Camera Charge usb


The S51 does not charge via the USB. Connecting the camera to a computer merely drains the battery faster, since the camera has to expend power communicating with the computer (even if it's only to say it has nothing to say).

The S51 comes with an MH-62 charger, which plugs into a wall outlet. This allows you to charge one EN-EL8 battery while using another in the camera.

If you need a charger, you can order one from Nikon at
http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikonusa/en_US/pd/productID.213504000
or a third-party one for about half the price at

My nikon coolpix s51 show message memory card is


Hi,
For the message that show's on your camera here's is what your need to do. 1. Remove the memory card and check for the physical lock toggle.
2. Toggle the lock on and off.
3. Try blowing on the memory card and the memory card port so it will be cleaned somehow. here is the picture of the lock toggle of the SD memory card 919a7e0.png

Coolpix s51


The camera should have come with an MH-62 battery charger. Put the battery into the charger and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

If you acquired your camera without a charger, you can order one from Nikon at http://www.nikonmall.com

How do I use my panaramic setting on my Nikon coolpix s51?


It's on page 40 of my S51 manual.

Basically, you select the direction, then take one pic. The camera displays a faint rendition of a portion of that frame so you can line up the next one, and so forth.

Nikon coolpix s51 digtal camera memory card says can not be used?


hi..
There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it.
You need to unlock the card itself. Take it out and look for a tab on the left. It should be pushed up.

thank u
