Foreign body of some kind (grit, sand, hair etc) has entered the lens extension / retraction gearing. Probably not worth cost of repair.

Refurbishing is a nebulous term that can describe everything from cosmetic touch-up to full operational checkout. You may have to have your Nikon unit returned for the latter.

I may be able to add some advice on how to solve this unfortunate problem of "file contains no image data". I have been suffering from the same problem. I have recently been on some amazing vacations and the photos I have lost due to this problem have been invaluable to me! I would pay an insane amount of money to get these photos back, but unfortunately I cannot!
I have a nikon coolpix camera. I contacted the nikon coolpix technical support center. I spoke with a representative who asked me what type of memory card I have. As it turns out I have a generic memory card, which is not compatable with nikon. The only memory cards brands that are indicated to be used with the nikon coolpix camera that I have are as follows: Toshiba, Panasonic, Lexmark, and Sandisk. Those are the only 4!
I was told that if you use another memory card besides the memory cards brands that I have listed... that the camera may communicate incorrectly with your memory card, which results in data that is incomplete to support an image. When this happens you will only see a portion of your image, and you cannot get it back. These bad images with incomplete saved information are called "corrupt files". The representative told me that there are some programs that are available to purchase that may be able to correct corrupt .jpg files, but she believes that they are memory card brand specific.
To put it simply, when you do not have to compatable memory card in your camera, it is as if your camera is speaking english and your memory card is speaking chinese and they are not communicating properly (this was the way the representative explained this problem to me). So check your user manual for your specific type of camera or look it up online to see what type or brand of memory card you should be using! I truly hope this helps someone avoid losing invaluable photos!

Check the MODE. Dark images can be recorded when camera is in MANUAL and there is not enough light. Without changing anything. Move to BRIGHTER location and take another photo. if the photo is brighter you are in a manual mode.

In most cases you can DOWNLOAD a manual when you go to Nikonusa dot com. Search for EXACT model of camera and DOWNLOAD the Manual. It is in PDF form.

I like PDF manuals because you can SEARCH for items you need help on fast.

The memory card many NOT be compatible, damaged or not really empty. I cannot tell from here.

GPS does not work everywhere. You need clear, unobstructed view of sky. Indoors heavily wooded areas can render GPS useless.

I am NOT an expert on this problem as I have never changed languages. Language is typically in the TOOLS menu (Wrench) It you get to settings and English is greyed out then I am stuck. If you have many settings you want to keep please ignore what I say here. One workaround that MAY work is reset to factory settings. It could be one of your settings that keeps language setting greyed out. A reset makes the camera like you just purchased it new.

Whatever button you used to select the ‘date stamp’ option, on most digital cameras, it’s usually a second button to ‘select’ whether you want it on or off.

I had an issue where the camera would not turn on and if it did, then it would be rarely at all. I attempted to replace the batteries, removing memory card, cleaning for sand and dust, and practically everything that has been recommended online. I was able to fix the issue by holding the preview pictures button (I don’t know the actual name of it but it looks like a rectangle with a play button in the middle) which turned the camera on to view the pictures. Then, I went into menu > clicked over to go to settings > and went down until I found “reset all.” Afterwards, I tapped the button that takes the picture and all the sudden it was good as new. It will turn on and off as it did before the issue arose. I don’t know if I just got lucky or this will work for others, but I wanted to share.

If this is possible, which I doubt, instructions will be found in the manual which accompanied the camera upon purchase.

Nikon Cameras | Answered on Oct 19, 2019

Go to and search for your camera and then look for Memory cards that are compatible

Please make sure that no cables are plugged in. Many camera when this is done it goes into a remote mode and the screen shuts down.
