Customer Question
I have a Nikon...

I have a Nikon Coolpix Camera 10 megapixels. All of a sudden it says I need batteries-so as usual I install them but it persists in saying that I need batteries. This is after 3 new sets of batteries. Help. What to do.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your CoolPix?

Probably 4 or 5 years old.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your CoolPix?

Just putting new batteries in. Does it need a new card of some kind? I see it but don't know how to remove it or install a new one.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the camera expert to know before I connect you?

No-just need it for E-bay where I occasionally sell jewelry.
