Nikon Coolpix... | Answered on Nov 25, 2017

is the lock on the card by chance. also depending on how old the camera is and how big the sd card is in gb. the lumix may not be able to handle that size of card, too many gb. My lumix would only accept up to 4 gb, so when I moved to 16 they did not work.

Basically that will be extremely expensive, and probably not worth it. Resign yourself to the fact that the camera is fubar, and replace it with a newer model. Remember NOT to get sand in this one.

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

In general there is information you CAN see WHILE you are taking photos. You can select if you want this information shown while you take photos. The battery info is part of this information. If you need more help look at your manual.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

The best way to transfer pictures from a camera with an SD memory card is to do it outside the camera. If your computer does not have an SD card reader built in, you can buy an external USB card reader for $20 or less on E-bay, Amazon, etc. Remove the memory card from the camera and insert it in the card reader. Your computer will treat the card reader and SD card just like it treats an external hard drive. Either drag-n-drop or copy and paste your pictures from the SD card file to a file on your hard drive. If after you have copied and backed up your files you want to reformat your SD card, replace it in the camera and format it in the camera, not in the computer. SD cards formatted in a computer will often not work in your camera because of slight differences in the formatting.

You can download drivers for your computer from the Nikon website. Click the Service and Support tab. You will see a link called "update your camera's firmware." Click it and find your camera.

First of all, you upload pictures to your computer (you are putting pictures into the computer, not taking them out; downloading). Make sure that your computer's plug-n-play module recognizes that your camera is attached. Depending on if you have a Mac or PC, you may need to download and install a new driver for your computer from the Nikon website. I never connect a USB cable from my camera to the computer for uploads. Instead, I take the SD memory card out of the camera and insert it in the card reader on my iMac. If your computer does not have a built in card reader, many brands of external card readers are available at very low prices on line.
