Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Nikon CoolPix S8000. I have used it a while. When I last turned it on it said my Chip was unformatted and asked if I wanted to format it. I have a number of pictures on the chip and of course do not want to loose them by formatting. When I access the chip with a computer it tells me the chip is not formatted. A new chip works fine in the camera. How can I access my pictures on the rogue chip (SD Kingston 1GB)?

Dear Bill,
It seems that your SD card is corrupted now, you cannot do anything to recover that. try formating it see if it works or not if no then all you need is to replace it with a new SD Card. or you can try out your local photo shops if they have any solutions.
SD cards are just like old Floppy disks, no one knows when they get corrupted.

My Nikon Coolpix S8000 is out of focus around edge of photo but fine at centre, on LCD and downloaded pictures.

Try resetting the camera's options to factory default. I hope I haven't misunderstood your problem.

My coolpix s8000 will no longer charge, even when plugged into the usb cable.

Have you tried other outlets in your house? If the battery door of the s8000 is open, the charge will not go through. Depending on how much you've been using your camera, you may need to call up Nikon for their support team and ask to get your camera repaired, the battery may be dead and no longer holds a charge.

We dropped our S8000 and are now getting a "lens error" message and the lens will not advance. Is this fixable?

To have it repaired you would need to send it directly to nikon. Unfortunately if they can tell it's been drop that then isn't covered under the manufacturer warranty although they may still be able to repair it at your cost. I would recommend if you still want future use of the camera to send it in to nikon for repair:
Thank you,

Quite regularly when I turn my new Coolpix S8000 on to take photos a message "memory card is write protected" appears on the screen & the camera won't operate. If I turn the camera...

on the side of the card you have a little button and it has 2 position : lock and free. if the button is on lock position that may be the problem! so please check it and put the button on free position and try again!

How do i enhance the depth of field using a NIKON coolpix S8000. I can't get the background to blur

You want to narrow the depth of field. Unfortunately, compact cameras with their small sensors make this difficult. Below is a tip giving pointers to narrow the depth of field as much as possible.
