When that message shows up when the camera is new, "Memory contains no images", and the camera is charging up, no pictures can be taken. Rule: cannot take pictures when charging. Thanks all the same for the effort. :-)

Once the S6500 displays the "Negotiating" screen open the WMU app on your Smart Device. If the WMU opens on the screen that says "Take Photos" or "View Photos" then Tap "Take Photos" to control the camera remotely and take pictures. When connected the camera will display "Remote Mode Selected" and the Smart Device will display the view from the View Finder. Tap "View Photos" to view and download images from the camera to the smart device. If the WMU opens on a black screen or a screen that says the camera isn't connected tap the "Top" option on the upper left to go back to the page that says "Take Photos" or View Photos" and then choose one of those options to continue. If you continue to encounter trouble connecting please contact Nikon Support: http://support.nikonusa.com.

The COOLPIX S6500 can be used with or without a memory card. However, the number of images that can be stored on the S6500's internal memory will vary depending on your image settings - about 5 images can be saved with the camera at its default settings. This number can be increased by changing the S6500's image mode settings to smaller image sizes, but image quality will decline with a decrease in image size.

A list of approved memory cards for the COOLPIX S6500 can be found on page 22 of the Technical Notes and Index section of the S6500 manual.

See page 49 of the reference section of the S6500 manual for a chart showing the approximate number of images that can be saved to a 4GB card at different image mode settings.

Question

camera is very slow to wake

When the camera is powered on but inactive for a time it goes into a sleep mode (screen goes dark). When I try to wake the camera by pressing once on the shutter button, the camera takes a long time to wake up. I'd say its at least 3 seconds. It just seems abnormally slow. Is there anything that I can do to speed it up?

I'm very happy with everything else about this camera, but the slow wake time is just really frustrating.

The problem could be due to the memory card you have in the camera. Try using the camera without the memory card inserted to see how it performs. If your issue persists, please contact tech support. Our contact is at support.nikonusa.com

Question

EN EL 19 battery will not charge

I have a new S6500 and have fully charged the battery one time. When the battery was exhausted I plugged the provided charger into the camera and the LED light blicked slowly for a while then stopped approx 4 hours. When I tried to turn the camera on to use it will not turn on. I thought maybe the battery did not charge and returned the camera to the charger which now blicks for approx 20 seconds and stops, however the camera will still not turn on. Any thoughts?

The S6500 cannot connect to the internet if that is what you are asking. The Wi-Fi feature of the camera allows smart devices such as iPhone/Ipad and adroid Phone/Tablets to connect to the camera and control the shutter or transfer pictures to the smart device wirelessly.

The Wireless Mobile Utility application must be installed on a compatible smart device before it can be used with a Nikon COOLPIX camera having built-in Wi-Fi. The application can be downloaded free of charge on Google Play™ on your Android device running Android 2.3 or later (smartphone) or Android 3.0 or later (tablet). For the iOS mobile platform, the application can be downloaded free of charge from the iTunes® online store for use with iOS version 6.0 or later.

The S6500 Wi-FI options will not be be available when an HDMI or USB cable is plug into the camera, if there is not a memory card in camera, if you have an Eye-FI card in the camera, or if the battery is not fully change.

90 percent of the time, this issue is cause by the memory card, or the battery not being fully charge.

When the built-in panorama application detects it is unable to connect images, shooting stops. The function also depends on rotation speed or shooting environment.
The closer shooting distance tends to fail in connecting images while the longer shooting distance can get relatively better images.
Using a tripod is recommended for panorama shooting.

Question

Camera can freeze if trying to use it too soon after powering up

I have a new Nikon Coolpix S6500 (red) camera and generally like it a lot. We have noticed on more than one occasion the camera freezing up if we attempt to take a picture, or display (play) previously taken pictures too soon after powering it on. Is this normal? We're using a SanDisk SDHC I, 30mb/sec 32GB SD card rated with a speed of 10. The card had roughly a few hundred pictures and a half dozen short (less than 15 minutes) videos. There was a lot of room left on the card, and we formatted the card in the camera before using it. The behavior allows you to actively view the on screen viewfinder, but we're unable to get the camera to take a picture, video, or play content from the SD card. The only way I've found to get out of this frozen state is to remove the battery and try again. I find if I wait a little after power up, it behaves better.

From your description of the problem, It could be the memory card that is causing the issue, and you may need to get a new one. Transfer all the files from the card to your computer, and format the memory card in the camera. You can also try using the camera for a while without a memory card in it, or if possible try a different memory card to see how the camera performs. If the issue persist, please contact Nikon technical support for assistance.
