I would suggest you go to the Nikon support site and see if there is a version you can download from there.

Here are some suggestions to try and see where the problem may be:

1. Have you tried to charge the battery? We would suggest trying different USB sources (e.g. a USB port on a computer as well as the Nikon supplied AC adapter)
2. Could the battery be dead? If you have tried to charge the battery in the camera via USB then there is a chance the battery is dead and needs replacing. If the camera had not been used for a long time and the battery was stored with little or no charge, the battery may now be un-chargeable.
3. If the camera has been left unused for a long time the internal battery that keeps the time/date may have discharged. You need to be able to set the time/date before the battery can be charged. If you plug the camera into a USB power source and you can see the menu on the LCD then set the date/time.

We hope these suggestions help to get the camera back up and running

You have two main choices. Yes, you could buy a new memory card. But I find the extra small cards can be easily lost or misplaced.
A better method is to transfer the images from the camera to a computer or laptop. It is also possible to transfer the photos through the computer or laptop onto an external hard drive with a much larger memory as a back up. Then you can re-use the card you already have.

If you have the receipt and store information and/or warranty registered, you may want to return for refund or exchange.

1) Please charge the camera and make sure the GREEN LED flashes.

2) When the green LED STOPS flashing disconnect the camera from the charger and wait a few seconds.

3) Now that the Camera is off attempt to turn it on. It is in a half way on while charging and you cannot 'turn it on'.

4) In review: Charge it, Disconnect it and turn it on.

Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Put the battery in and plug in the charger and connect it to the camera. If the power button glows and a green LED flashes it is taking a charge. Do not try to turn the camera on UNTIL you can get it to charge.

If the camera was dropped and it does not turn on with a known GOOD battery the camera must have been damaged. When you dropped it the FIRST time and it worked you were lucky. Cameras do NOT like to be dropped.

maybe you need a new battery. They have a specific life.

if the problem is with the camera itself, then it is probably the master board - and you might consider whether Nikon repair is worth the cost.

You got it wet enough that you had to disassemble it? It's toast dude. Sorry.

When a camera formats a card it wants control of that card. It something else changes the card the first camera will think the card is corrupted and in a way it has. Cards are not that expensive. Please use one card in one camera and back up you files on a computer.. I have found NO problem with deleting folders on my cameras using the computer. You typically can REMOVE photos on a COMPUTER you should ONLY let the camera ADD photos. use one Card for one camera.
