It flashes green when it is basically on but in a sub mode that I'll call CHARGE MODE. If it is flashing that means the battery is charging. I suggest to let it continue to charge until it stops flashing and then remove the charger connection. When the camera is sitting all by itself with nothing connected you can then turn it on.

Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

SOURCE: Cannot turn OFF self timer mode on Nikon coolpix 8400.

Press the self-timer button (marked with a one-handed clock) once for ten-second delay, twice for three-second delay, three times to cancel timer.

Assuming you have new batteries and the camera lens cover is opening when turned on. Try switching to any mode other than automatic, turn off the flash, and press the shutter button. Many cameras have a safety feature that prevents the flash capacitor from charging if the case is opened. This is to lessen the chance of electric shock. They usually use one or two of the screws along the perimeter of the camera to complete a circuit that lets the processor know that the case is closed. Verify that all the screws are in place along the perimeter of your camera, and that there are no gaps along the perimeter seams. If you're missing a screw, try using one of the others to replace it.
If they're all there, next thing to check is the batteries. The brand that you're using may have reached its shelf life, or just may not have sufficient power to charge the flash capacitor. Try a better brand, or better yet rechargeable NiMH batteries.
If the above didn't help, then the flash tube or its circuit is probably at fault. In this case, would then recommend professional repair. This repair is somewhat difficult, requires some soldering, has some danger of electrical shock, and goes beyond what I'd like to describe here

Why won't my Nikon Coolpix b500 (red) turn on? When I just press the on button, it shows a green light also. What does this mean?


The best solution would probably be to check with your seller if it's still under warranty and let him solve the problem, but in case you want to be sure, go through the manual of your camera to see what the lights mean, if you don't have a manual you can find it here:

The best solution would probably be to go through the manual of your camera to see what all of the buttons do, because I have a feeling that you still didn't figure out the basics of your device :) If you don't have a manual you can find it here:

My Nikon Coolpix S3100 won't turn on


I had the same problem, and many other people have had this issue. The camera sat for too long, and the battery fully discharged. It needs to be reset. In order to do that, remove the battery and memory card. Replace only the battery, and plug it in. You should see a green light flashing to the right of the LCD screen. That means it is now charging. Replace your memory card, and let it charge before trying to use it.
