Customer Question
I have a COOLPICS...

I have a COOLPICS B500. When I turn it on, I get a read-out on the screen to "Turn the camera off and then on again." I have done that multiple times, and also replaced the batteries. Don't find this problem in the troubleshooting section What do I do?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your CoolPix?

It was given to me as a Christmas gift.

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

Replaced the batteries was the only option, Can't get past the Turn off and on message.

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

Not that I can think of.
