My scan disk card will

Sounds like the contact pins in the camera have been damaged so they no longer match up correctly with the card. Use magnifying glass you may be able to see the damage. HAPPENS when card is not pushed down evenly. i recommend inserting all cards with both thumbs keeping card straight. Common damage, in many CAMERAS from wrongly inserted cards. I've replaced many over the years. Can be a very pricey lesson for some. Or sometimes can ride off the camera, deeming it un-economical as parts can cost a lot more then camera is worth.

Import photos to Picasa from Nikon Coolpix S50Pmemory card computer

He I'm running Windows7 Ultimate and ViewNX2 goes fine with me. Did you try running it as admin? Perhaps your account is limiting something. Windows7 is acting like nobody knows that there could be danger, while connected to the internet. You don't need to have the admin account, you almost need a skill as a system admin, to solve every problem Win introduces.

There's a small triangular latch on the back-center corner of the battery. Push this toward the back of the camera.Refer to the illustration in the "Removing the Battery" section of the manual (page 15 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

My nikon coolpix s50 camera

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Lens Cover Error-Lens Cover will not open

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards

Camera says 'memory card is write protected' with

Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your camera , the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

Nikon Coolpix S50 has screwey autofocus

First off what do you mean by screwey autofocus? And how close up is close up? Have you tried changing the AF assist settings?
k Autofocus
Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations:
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g., the sun is behind the
subject and is in deep shadow)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g., when the subject is standing in
front of a white wall, wearing a white shirt)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g., the subject is inside a cage)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus several
times, or use focus lock (c 99).
l AF-assist Illuminator and Flash
If the subject is poorly lit, the AF-assist illuminator may light by pressing the shutter-release
button halfway, or the flash may fire by pressing the shutter-release button all the way down.

My nikon coolpix s50 camera

Hi,

In Auto mode this camera dispays an icon showing 'IN' to denote internal memory being used. This icon should extinguish when the memory card is inserted. If the icon remains on screen with the card inserted then the problem is that camera is not able to recognise the card and is only reading from internal memory.

This can occur if the contacts to the memory card are not clean or have been damaged through repeated use. This can only be resolved by a service repair.

However you should also try the following.

1) Use the 'Reset All' function to restore the camera to default values and see if this resolves the issue.

2) Remove the battery from the camera altogether - replace it after one minute and see if card is recognised.

3) In the settings menu try the copy function to see if the camera will allow you to copy internal images directly to the memory card.

If these steps fail the camera will require service repair I am afraid.

Thanks for using FixYa.
