Nikon coolpix s6500. Display...

Nikon coolpix s6500. Display has now started to show flashing red clock face and also [9999] which is not the number of images on card.

Technician's Assistant: Are you experiencing the same issue in different shooting modes, or just one?

Usually shoot in auto mode after selecting scene. Seems to be in all scene choices

Technician's Assistant: Has there been any damage to your camera recently (e.g. from dropping it or getting it wet)?

No

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

No thanks

Hi,

The internal clock battery became discharged so the time and date needs to be set again. When the time is not set the picture count also shows incorrectly. Set the date and time using the attached instructions.

Please keep in mind that my diagnosis & solutions provided are directly dependent on the accuracy of your description of the problem. As with any "do it yourself" fixes, success is a "team effort", since I can't see or touch the camera, and relies on the customer's manual dexterity and ability to follow the instructions well. If the "do it yourself" approach doesn't work out for you and you need conventional repair, please let me know.

If you require additional information, please use the Reply to Expert to contact me. Click the ratings only after our exchange is complete and you are satisfied.

If you are satisfied that my answer is accurate or provides a reasonable solution, please do not forget to rate my answer OK, Good or Excellent.

Thank you
