About how long ago did you get this camera? How often do you charge the battery? How long do you generally leave the camera charging for?
These are three questions you need to ask yourself with most devices that come with battery's, such as cameras, laptops, cell phones, etc. Namely because these battery's don't last too well over time without the appropriate care. Any one of these devices can be "over-charged" and effectively kill the longevity of the battery, thus necessitating in the purchase of a new battery. I would say you can typically see adverse effects before the device is a year old if you leave the battery plugged in for long spans of time after the battery is charged, and if you often charge it despite it not being anywhere near dead. If the device is rather new, and it still won't turn on. Try plugging the camera in, and ensure that the proper lights are on to identify that the battery is charging properly, or try bringing it to the place where you purchased it and have one of the associates there check it out.
Hope this helps!

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix battery will not charge

The battery could be near the end of it's useful life. Try another one to make sure it's the battery and not the camera.

SOURCE: I have 2 Nikon Coolpix

All rechargeable batteries eventually die and fail to hold a charge -that may be your problem; so you may have to go to camera store that sells Nikon cameras and ask to put your charged battery in one of their cameras- if it does the same thing there as it does with your camera- it's definitely the battery- if it runs strong for a while, you have some type of problem in your camera or charger that needs fixing. There may be a film on them even if they seem shiny. Take a pencil eraser or art eraser and clean the contacts - almost always fixes the problem.

Turn battery temperature high

hello,you have the most popular problem,that every 1 meets,regarding most modern consumer good's,relating with battery's. DO NOT charge up your battery,too often,as you unwittingly are OVERCHARGING the battery,as temperature is directly related to cells that are taking in far too much current,use your camera,till it dies(total loss of power) then only charge for a brief period,then leave camera for a while,before re-using. vary the state of charge/in relationship to usage,and do only charge battery infrequently. hope that helps, cheers.

Nikon coolpix s205 wont charge

It probably wasn't the charger that was bad, but the rechargeable battery. They go bad over time.
According to the manual you need an EN-EL10 rechargeable battery.

I was using my Nikon coolpix s205. after taking pictures, it went on standby mode and when i was going to use it again, the monitor was just black and i cannot take pictures anymore. i tried to turn it off...

All I can suggest is 1) Fully charge the camera. and 2) Make sure NO cable is attached to the camera when you turn it on.

Background; Lens motors use lots of power and with a dead battery they do not work very well (stuck) When you have a cable attached to the camera the monitor WILL shut OFF.

Hello Ice,

Please check the battery of the Nikon Coolpix 4100 Digital Camera. Please check the battery is fully charged or may be its damaged if its swollen. Also check the contact points of battery and camera and clean it. Insert the battery and charge it fully. When the battery gets charged fully then press the power button 4 to 5 times to start it. If the battery is damaged then replace the battery with new battery.

Yes, you may plug the EH-68P adapter into a 220V source. One end of the USB cable plugs into the adapter, the other end plugs into the USB socket on the bottom of the camera.

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.
