    I'm having the same problem. The camera won't turn on and the battery didn't give any indication it was about to die. Any reset feature that might bring it back to life?

    you have the choice new battery or new camera.
    Seems extreme- until you check the price of a new battery - they ain't cheap- only to find that battery is misbehaving because of some other mischief.

    So check battery prices- great sites on line.
    or do you have a store or some such near you who can test the battery?
    Dud batteries of one sort or another associated with premium products have been in the news of late because of quality problems.
    Be a shame to dump a camera because its battery is NBG.

SOURCE: Nikon CoolPix S5 - Same trouble

I went through the process of sending my camera in to the nikon repair center. it was used very little, in fact it appears brand new. it had never been mistreated, wich is what nikon tried to convince me must have happened because they refuse to believe that they have sold an inferior product. they never told me what is wrong with the camera but wanted $146 to fix it and send it back. the only solution is that everyone send their s5 back to the service ctr and refuse to pay to have them repaired. they e-mail a survey and if we all give them low marks maybe they will decide that they should take care of their customers a little better, especially with todays economy. the survey asks if you would purchase or recommend NIKON again. I told them that I WOULD AVOID NIKON LIKE A SICK CHINESE CHICKEN.

Battery life nikon coolpix s3000

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Nikon Coolpix S5 lens cover won't open

Hi Debscan, My 1.4 year old S5 developed the same problem and after checking out various websites I get the impression that it is a common one to these cameras. I found that if I put the camera on a level table and then turn it on (and off) 3 times the lens cover would open further with each try. On the third turn-on the lens cover would drop fully with a definite "Click" and the camera would work. The next time I shut it off, the lens would not close properly, but the same "Third times the charm" routine would always work. This may only delay the inevidable final crash of the camera, but it might get you a few more pictures out of it.
