20 Most Recent Nikon Coolpix 5200 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

I am NOT an expert on this problem as I have never changed languages. Language is typically in the TOOLS menu (Wrench) It you get to settings and English is greyed out then I am stuck. If you have many settings you want to keep please ignore what I say here. One workaround that MAY work is reset to factory settings. It could be one of your settings that keeps language setting greyed out. A reset makes the camera like you just purchased it new.

You Can Use the Google translation http://translate.google.com/ or Bing translation http://www.microsofttranslator.com/ to translate the common words about camera menu to the language of your camera now (As some LANGUAGE can't be type by latter such as Chinese, Japanese and so on), and to make a right setting.

If you can read the SD card with your computer, copy (backup) all images on the card to your computer. Make sure you saved ALL images. Then put the card back in the camera and FORMAT it. It is in the TOOL MENU that looks like a WRENCH.

digital heaven perhaps did you unlock the sd card before trying to upload .small switch on the side of card .

Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.

Remove the lens cap and lens hood, if present. On the front of the lens is a threaded mount, like the mouth of a jar. Just screw the filter on, like screwing a lid onto a jar.

When you want your camera repaired, option one is contact the Nikon service centre closest to you.
Option two, if you want to do it yourself, goto ifixit.com. There you find lots of videos books and pictures about electronic repair. Perhaps your camera is there too, or one that looks the same. On that site you also can order spare parts and tools if you need so.

It's brand new - take it right back and get it exchanged for a working unit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 5200 was designed primarily as a still camera, storing images (and videos) to memory. It was not designed to function as a webcam, streaming live videos to another device.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Sorry, the 5200 is limited to a three-second or ten-second delay with the self-timer, and there is no provision for remotely triggering the camera.
