This happened to us as well. We contacted Costco (where it was purchased) who offers free extended service plans of the products they sell. They walked me through a fix, which worked for us.

1. Hold power button for 60 seconds.
2. Done.

Apparently, it resets the internal computer.

Make sure you are using the wall charger that came with it. It needs more power than an average charger like a iPhone or other USB standard charger.

Disconnect the USB cable or unplug the Charging AC adapter and correctly connect it again, or try a back up battery. Also, connect the USB to another computer in order to charge the battery. If the problem persists you will need to send the camera and the charger to be evaluated.

Question

Unable to update firmware

I am trying to update the firmware from 1.0 to 1.1.

I have the firmware bin file on the root of the card.
I turn on the camera and go into the Menu.
I select Settings and Firmware (at the very bottom).
I hit OK and it shows the firmware version (1.0).

Why can't I update it? I get no prompt for updating it.

I am having a problem with the battery being exhausted prematurely and I understand this update should resolve that.

Please help.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY!

Copy the Firmware FOLDER to the card, not the bin file.

The camera does not recognize the bin file. It only recognizes a FOLDER called FIRMWARE and THEN it looks inside that folder for the bin file.

Once it recognizes the Firmware Folder (with bin file in it), it will ask to do the update.

Just follow prompts at that time.

I haven't found a selection where you can take fisheye photos, but you can change your photos to a fisheye effect. After taking your pic, go to playback and select menu. Under the menu options go to filter effects - there are a few options in addition to fisheye, like color select and painting, soft, etc. Play around with some of them. It's fun. Good luck hope you enjoy your camera.

Question

Where can I get a printed manual (that will fit in my camera bag)?

No printed manual came with this camera. I realize that I can print off a copy from the software included, but I would rather not cart around an 8 x 11 unbound manual. My prior Coolpix camera included a nice little manual that I could put into my camera bag and carry with me on my trips. Why doesn't this newer version include a usable manual????
