Question about Nikon COOLPIX S200 Digital Camera

2 Answers

I've just bought a Coolpix S200 for my nephew. Although new It did not come with a battery or charger.These I bought on E-Bay separately (with the correct specifications). After I charged the battery I fitted it a few hour later and when I switched on I get the message BATTERY TEMPERATURE HIGH and the camera goes into shutdown mode as described in the manual. The battery could not have been "hot" and neither was the environment in which I was working. I partially discharged the battery - no luck. Then I recharged it again - still the same problem. I'm fairly used to battery issues as I run a number of DSLRs, but this is a new one to me. I did notice that when I tested the voltage of the battery it was reading 4.7 - is this normal?? Thanks

Technically, I believe that even 4.7V wont even damage the battery because when you plug the camera to a computer through a USB cable, your camera's battery does not go off. Voltage supplied through a USB cable is fairly 4.7 to 5V, which seems to be quite reasonable for the camera's battery.
I have a camera (Nikon Coolpix S3100), which is constantly showing up BATTERY TEMPERATURE HIGH and a red LED is consistently flashing on high frequency. I am unable to access the camera's firmware at all. However the data in the camera is fairly accessible through a computer. Charging is going fine, as it should be. Moreover, I had got its battery checked by plugging the same battery into another such camera, and the battery was found to be OK. Dealer says that there is some problem with my camera. Can anybody help me out in this?? I'll be much grateful to him / her.

Greetings - I suspect you purchased a third party battery (I've done the same to save some $$) sometimes with good results and sometimes not so good 8^(.

I suspect the camera message re: BATTERY TEMPERATURE HIGH is quite right as the battery spec for that camera is 3.7V. As you probably know from dealing with other cameras, a .1 or .2 V over or under is usually is not a problem., but 4.7V vs the required spec of 3.7V is not going to work out at all.

I suggest you contact the battery seller and let them know they sold you a defective part, assuming of course that it is a replacement part for the Nikon EN-EL10 that the camera calls for.

Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

My Coolpix s570 camera wont switch on

I noticed that you noted that you have a new battery. Have you fully charged it? Although batteries are charged before they leave the factory, you do not know how long they have been sitting on the dealer's shelf slowly discharging. The charging time for your EN-EL10 battery is about 100 minutes. Once your battery is fully charged, try to turn the camera on again. If it still doesn't work, you may have bought a defective battery, the battery contacts on the battery, the battery charger or in your camera's battery compartment may be dirty or the battery charger may be defective.
To clean terminals, rub a clean pencil eraser across the contacts. That will remove any dirt, grime or oils that may be preventing a solid electrical contact. Once the contacts are clean, charge the battery again and retry it in the camera.
If all that fails, contact the Nikon USA Service Center at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Warning battery exhausted

The two most likely possibilities are that either the camera is not charging the battery although it indicates it is or there may be a shorted or defective circuit in the camera that is draining the battery. To test for this, buy an inexpensive external battery charger ( has several model at low cost) and see if the camera works after charging the battery on the external charger. If it works, the problem is in the camera's charging circuit and you will be able to use your camera on externally charged batteries. If that does not solve the problem, replacing the camera may be the cheep way out.

Can coolpix S 200 recharge through av link.Its has 7.1 megapixel.

No. Nor will it charge through the USB port. It uses the MH-63 battery charger or equivalent. See page 12 of this manual. If you need a charger, there are several available here.

I cant charge my nikon coolpix s6150

Hi, that happened to mine too but I found out that there was nothing wrong with either the camera or the battery. Simply put it, the charger that came with the camera is not capable of charging the battery up after it has been totally drained. Thus, I bought a charger to charge my battery separately and now it works totally fine.

the same cable that came with the camera for USB is also the battery charger cable if you use usb. most of these cameras can be charged from computer or from the wall. so that little jack that your usb cable plugs into is also the charge port, just make sure you have rechargeable batteries in it.
