I have not been able to connect the wi-fi after several hours of trying to make it work. I am returning this camera. There is not enough information in the manual about how to connect to wi-fi.

If you are going to buy this camera I would strongly suggest you try to connect to wi-fi before you leave the store and make sure you can return the camera. I bought this camera for the wi-fi feature. It shouldn't be this difficult to connect.

Sorry, the second line cannot be access. I hope you are not trying to input your router password. Please refer to page 107 of your manual. When the Wifi feature is activated on the S5200, the camera creates it own wifi hotspot which you must connect to using an Iphone, Ipad, Adroid smart phone, or android tablet, and you need to have the 'WMAU' (Wireless mobile Adapter Utility) already installed on your smart device before trying to connect. The app can be downloaded from the google play store and Apple app store using your smart device.The S5200 cannot connect to your broadband router or anything else.

After connecting to the camera network using your Smart device, you will see 'Negotiating' on the camera screen. At that point you should launch the WMAU application.

Question

Camera freezes

Had the S5200 since May 2013 yesterday Aug. 2013 I was shooting and the camera lens would not retract, camera would not shut off wouldn't do anything. So removed the battery, which had been recharged day before, and then replaced it which seemed to correct the problen. However, when it's in "backlight" mode it records 2 pics, one being lighter than the other. Previously have a 3200 - works beautifully. Previous to that F2 - works fine also.

In Backlighting mode, when the shutter-release button is pressed all the way, the camera shoots images continuously at high speed, and saves the following two images.
1) A non-HDR composite image
2)An HDR composite image in which the loss of details in highlights or shadows is minimized
*The second image saved is an HDR composite image.
Please refer to page 46 of the manual for details.

I got a Nikon Coolpix S5200 for Christmas as a gift and have been trying to figure out how to download and work the wifi. I have read everything that I could fine on how to work the wifi but nothing has worked. My manual doesn't have anything about how the wifi is connected or how to connect. I have tried to fine the app on my Ipad but the online app I can fine is for S800c and it doesn't work with my camera. What can I do to make this camera work with is the main reason my husband bought the camera for me and now I have had it over a month and still have not used it. It is getting very frustrating everyday that goes by and I can't use my new camera. We have a son who's birthday party is next week and I really would love to use this camera and the wifi to share the pictures. SOMEONE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE explain to me how to get it to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you.

There is only one app for all Nikon wireless cameras, it is "wireless mobile adapter utility", so it sounds like you have the right app.
Here is a link to the full user manual for the s5200, it is in PDF format. Please read pages 107-110 for wireless instructions. http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/S5200RM_EN.pdf
There is also a link in that section for app instructions.
Good luck, call Nikon if you can't figure it out.1- 800-nikonus

The COOLPIX S5200 has Wi-Fi capabilities to allow transferring of images from the camera to an iOS/Android device. Please keep in mind the battery of the camera must be full and the memory card must be inserted into the camera. Also make sure that the battery on the smart device is also charged. Once these steps have been taken, the Wi-Fi can be turned on by turning on the Wi-Fi options in the set up menu. When the Wi-Fi is turned on, go to the Wi-Fi settings of the iOS/Android device and select the Wi-Fi network. Once the network is selected, open the Wirless Mobile Utility App. If there are anymore questions please contact 1-800-NIKONUS!

First, you will need to download an app called WMU (Wireless Mobile Utility) to your apple or android smart device. The app can be downloaded free of charge from the application store on your smart device. You must also have a fully charge battery in your camera, and an approved memory card . (see page 22 of your manual for the list of approved memory cards)

(1)Press the menu button on your camera.
(2) Scroll down to 'Setup' (wrench) and press OK.
(3)Scroll down and highlight 'WiFi Options' and press OK.
(4)Scroll down and select WiFi Network and press OK, then select 'ON' and press OK

Note: If your battery is not fully charge, or if there is no memory card in the camera, or if the usb cable is plug into the camera, or if an Eye-Fi card is in the camera. you will not be able to highlight "WiFi Network'.

Once 'Wi-FI network' is activated on your camera, you will see an SSID(network name) display on the camera screen, and you will also see four square boxes going around on the camera screen.

Next, go to the settings on your android phone/table or Iphone/Ipad and turn on 'Wi-Fi' and after a few seconds your phone, tablet, or Ipad will display a list of networks that you can connect to. Tap on the network that is the same name as the SSID displayed on your camera screen.
Once your smart device is connected to the Camera network, you will see 'Negotiating' on the camera screen. At that point , you should lunch the WMU app that you downloaded to your smart device.

Please make sure the S5200 battery is fully charge and the USB cable not plugged into the camera.
If an Eye-Fi SD card is in the S5200 you will not be able to turn ON the Wi-Fi Network. We have tested a few brands of SD cards and some of them will not allow you to turn ON the S5200 Wi-Fi Network even if the battery is fully charge and the USB cable is not plugged in the camera. We recommend an approved SD card. NIKON tested and approved SD cards for the S5200 are listed on Page 22 of the S5200 user manual. If the Issue persists, please contact Nikon Technical Support for assistance.

The Wi-Fi options in the S5200 menu will be grayed out if there is no memory card inserted in the camera, if the battery is not fully charged, or if an Eye-Fi card is inserted in the camera. With an approved memory card and a fully charged battery inserted you should be able to access the S5200's Wi-Fi options and turn the on the Wi-Fi.

Detailed instructions on using the Wi-Fi feature of the COOLPIX S5200 start on page 107 if the S5200 manual. A list of approved memory cards for the S5200 can be found on page 22 of the Technical Notes and Index section of the S5200 manual.

Question

My Coolpix S5200 will not turn on after charging the battery fully.

I have removed the battery and memory card and held down the on/off button for a minute and put both back in with no luck. I purchased the camera yesterday and turned it on (prior to charging) and set the date/time. I then charged it overnight and tried to turn it on in the morning and it didn't work. I bought the camera as a replacement for a trip (my first Nikon after 3 Olympus cameras) and now am on a trip without a camera.

Question

Response didn't help, I am still unable to play back voice memos in the camera

In playback mode the camera displays both the musical note symbol to indicate there is an attached voice memo, and it displays the OK:Quick Effects symbol. Apparently Quick Effects takes precedence over playing the voice memo when the OK button is pressed.

According to the manual, turning off Quick Effects in the Menu turns it off only during shooting:
"Off - Disables the quick effects function (during shooting)"
I have turned off quick effects in the menu but the quick effects indicator still shows when in playback mode.

Perhaps the only solution is to download the .wav file to a pc and play it there. Not very useful when away from the house.
