Question about Nikon F5 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Nikon F5 I purchased an F5 and I can't get it to turn on. I put two different sets of new batteries in the chamber and it still won't turn on. The camera came with 8 corroded batteries. I took the camera to a local dealership and they cleaned off the corrosion for me. I have a camera course that starts next week and I need help. The dealership I bought it from was in California and they are not returning my emails (I bought the camera through Amazon). Any ideas on what is wrong?

    I cleaned the battery case and measured 12 volts on the battery holder terminals but I still have no power. My situation is the same as SD harker's problem in that I purchased the camera from someone on ebay and while the camera looks pristine, it didn't work when I received it. No wonder the price was so good! I used the F5 for nearly 10 years when I worked for the federal government so the problem isn't between my ears.

    I had the same problem after mounting a new lense. The camera had worked fine until I put the new lense on then it wouldn't power up at all. I changed the batteries and nothing happened so in the end cleaned all the lense connections and it seems to work OK now...

It's possible that there was some existing fault with the camera that led to it being disused. The lack of use led to the batteries leaking.

I suggest you find a pro camera dealership nearby and ask them to refurbish the camera. The pro stores will normally be able to rent you a temporary replacement.

How to change kind of batteries when camera won't stay on to get to menu


My experience is the batteries have not made any difference. It asks you to have to turn off the camera and remove lens cap. When that is done, its the same issue. Currently my Nikon's lens is out and no matter what batteries I place it in it won't come on! Had to purchase a Sony to replace it! Wish you luck but the batteries don't seem to make a difference.

I have a brand new Nikon D3100. The battery was fully charged and placed in the camera. I took about 4 photos, and then turned the camera off. When I turned it back on the battery wasn't working to...


The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.


The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.


Hope this solves your problem.

Good day!

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off


That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

Battery Exhausted


You have to replace the batteries.
Here is a link that leads you to download the manual in english language for free. When you open the manual, you would see instructions on how to replace the batteries and the type of batteries which are compatible with your device.
Also, if you do not want to go to the manual, here is a step by step instruction on how the battery should be replaced.
1. Switch off your camera and open the battery/memory card chamber.(ensure that the power light and monitor have gone off before opening the chamber).
2. After opening the chamber, slide the orange battery latch upward and remove the battery using your hand.
3. Use the new battery to push or slide the orange latch upward and make sure that the positive and negative terminals of the battery are on the left and right side respectively(doing otherwise would damage your camera)
4. After pushing the battery in completely, the orange latch would lock into place and then you can close the battery/memory card chamber.
You should charge the new battery for a couple of hours before turning it on.
The device uses a rechargeable Li-ion battery EN-EL10.
If you need links on where you can purchase the batteries, you can comment here and i will send you some links.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information. Thank you for using fixya.

Nikon Coolpix 4600 lens extended and won't turn on


Go to store and purchase a memor card reader/writer. It will allow you to put your memory card in it and download the pictures to the computer via the usb port. Make sure the reader/writer is made to accept your type of memory card.
