Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

My P500 has a full charge when I store it for the night. After a couple of days in storage, it has no power and must be recharged. This has happened 3 times since I got the camera about 4 weeks ago. Any Ideas on the cause?

The first question is where are you storing it? If you are storing it in the camera it may be using a charge over the time it's in the camera. I would try storing the battery out of the camera for testing. If you have been storing it outside of the camera then I would contact the store and see what they are able to do for you (even exchange). If the store will not work with you Nikon most likely has at least a 1 yr warranty since you have only had it for 4 weeks they may just replace the battery or camera (may be defective). I would first start with the store sometimes even though they say 30 days they will make exceptions.

My pro 39 scanner loses memory after unplugged for 24 hrs..Question: is there a memory storage battery inside unit..


Here's a link to your radio's manual. Make sure the rechargeable batteries are able to accept a full charge. If they have been recharged more than a couple of hundred times, they may need to be replaced.

Pay attention to which jacks your are powering the radio through. The PWR and CHG jacks perform some similar, but very different functions.

The AC or DC adapter can be connected to the CHG jack when you wish listen to the radio (and recharge at the same time) ONLY when NiCad batteries are installed (or to simply recharge the NiCad batteries with the radio off). Recharging with the radio off will allow the batteries to recharge fastest (10 - 18 hrs).

As per the manual, you should not connect a power source to the CHG jack if using anything other than NiCad batteries in the radio, as they will heat up and could explode, instead connect to the PWR jack whenever using regular, non-rechargeable batteries.

The green light on your charger indicates a full charge but you know thats not right since you didn't charge the batteries when they were in storage they have dropped so low the charger cannot detect them and provide a charge. The batteries will need to be replaced with new ones. Charge before use and charge for at least 20 days to get them operating at 100% now you will have to use it for those 20 days to get the batteries used to charging charge every night when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do have to leave the chair for a week or so put up fully charged and charge once a week overnight. If you put the chair in storage again disconnect the batteries from the chair and store with a full charge. Hope this helps you

just read the charging instructions. Charge for 16-18 hours. If stored for more than 6 months recharge for the full 16 hours. Do not leave the lantern on after the battery has stopped, has overdischarging the battery can cause problems in recharging to a full charge. If this does happen, switch lantern to off and recharge for 40 hours.YES 40 hours. Only the LED is the only light to be used while charging. If you hane the other light on hi or low the battery does not charge.

Hope this helps

Turn On Problem


Are you sure you are actually shutting down and not entering sleep mode? Sleep mode does use power while it appears to be off, it resumes instead of powering on. Have you tried removing the battery when charged and allowing it to sit over night or a full day then check the charge level. If the battery discharges regardless of being inserted, then the battery is at fault.

F505 Battery Question


The Sony battery for the F505 is the info lithium type from Sony. Since its lithium you don't have to worry about the memory effect of the older technology. The battery has a chip that will regulate the amount of charge the battery needs. It will stop charging if the battery is full, so you can charge it at anytime. You should store it fully charged from what I've been told, if it for extended period of time. For short interval it should not matter.
