this is my Nikon Coolpix 610 purchased in 2015. It is now 9 years old. Some of you will remember I turned over a cup of hot chocolate and the camera was under the table in the chair and had cocoa running down it. See prior post Chocolate Waterfall.
A year ago, I put the camera away because the photos were not a clear, and sometimes it refused to work at all. I did not want to pay for repairs on and old camera.
I saw a bird I wanted to show you, and could not get it with the cell phone. After looking at the price of a new zoom camera I dug this one out, to see if it worked and the batteries were dead. After recharge it still refused to come on, but if I wiggled the screen it would for a take a clear pic then a few blurry pics.. DUH! all it needed was a new battery. Bob said if the batteries are the original, how old is the camera 2nd DUH!
It turns out batteries have a shelf life.... who knew??? Bob Knew!
I BOUGHT A NEW BATTERY, in fact TWO batteries since 1 was 15.00 and 2 were 17.00.
PS, yes I took these photos and that IS THE TINY CHRISTMAS Tree still out and it is Feb 21 and NOW we wait for that bird to reappear.
PS again, I like the cell better because it auto puts the photos in Google Photo Folder. Bah hum bug on USB cords to upload in computer and then move to the cloud. I will if I have to ha ha
