Nikon 950 -- damage or configuration

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Don Phillipson, Jun 14, 2009.

  1. This old Coolpix 950 appears to be in working order --
    except that the top selection button PLAY appears not
    even to turn the camera on. Selections M REC and A REC
    both work OK and the camera records pictures.

    Setting PLAY mode produces no image in the topside information
    window, and the Menu button appears not to work. Does this
    suggest the whole PLAY module is broken, or did I fail to find
    in the manual (PDF) some setting that switches this on/off?

    I'll second David's suggestion. I've used the same technique on my CP-990.
    Specifically I used some Radio Shack tuner cleaner/lubricant. Apply a small
    amount, work the switch back and forth, then turn the camera with the
    switch facing down to allow excess liquid to drain from the switch. Repeat
    as needed.

  3. Thanks gents both.
    (I just wish I had seen these helpful replies before driving
    20 km. into town and 20 km. home for an essential
    lawnmower part, right next to Radio Shack . . . )
