Question about Nikon Coolpix 775 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon Coolpix 775 autos off within 10 seconds

This is my first digital camera. Bought used on ebay "as is." Camera powers off within 10 to 15 seconds of being turned on. I tried a new battery, but it didn't make any difference. Any ideas?

This is either due to one of two problems.

I will start with the simple 1 first.

Go to the menu settings, and select the "S" page, at the bottom is selection for AutoOff, check the settings for this. I would suggest 1 min being about average for most users.

Come out of the menu settings, and leave the camera for 1 min it should auto power down in about that time give or take a few seconds.

If this works then that is the problem solved.

The more complex issue is, that if you camera still is affected by short auto shut downs, then you need to buy a new battery. I paid about £5 for one of ebay, so they are available.

Hope this helps

Upgraded firmware on coolpix 775 to ver 1.4 but now camera will not read 8gb card used to do update even though reformated in camera

On page 153 of the manual, still on line here:
http://cdn-10.nikon-cdn.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/CP775man.pdf
It says :
25461063-prrdqssrdmrazwwkxujz54sw-5-0.png So perhaps you could us a card up to 2 Gbyte, but more will be a problem. Even with new firmware it could be the camera can't address more then 2 Gbyte cards.
In the upgrade description (firmware is released in 2002 and the description last edited in 2007) it says you should use an in the manual approved memory card for the upgrade.
So special for the upgrade don't use a huge card. Only after the upgrade try other cards, but be aware the modern cards all could fail to work in this camera

My nikon 775 just won't start even after i put in a new battery (i thought it was a battery problem). any clues on what i should do before i retire if permanently?

Hi

The Nikon Coolpix 775 can be powered using a EN-EL1 rechargeable battery or a disposable 2CR5 type battery (Panasonic, Duracell, Maxell etc). If you are trying to use an EN-EL1 you may want to try using a 2CR5 - this would prove if the battery charger you are using to charge the EN-EL1 battery is working correctly.

You can also try and check if the contacts inside the battery compartment are clean - the camera is quite old and there will normally be some dirt deposits after that length of time.

Hope this helps.

Need usb cord for coolpix 775 older digital camera

I would just get a USB mulit card reader with a CF port instead.

The Coolpix 775 shoots in JPEG format, so if you are using a PC or Mac this method will work fine.

Coolpix 775 shuts off all by itself

The auto shut off should be around 30 seconds to allow the built in memory to store everything and rest.If it keeps repeatedly turning off and then on again in a short space of time it will use alot more power from the batteries just Like a car engine uses more petrol stopping at traffic lights. The other factor, I am repeatedly typing on this site is Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.
