Kayihan, could you please let me know how did you get your camera fixed after you've had inserted the power cable into the HDMI slot? That's exactly what I did and now my camera does not work.

Kayihan isn't going to have a clue you have written unless for some reason or other he/she decides to start looking around the digitalphoto forum.
EDIT: Unlikely, as it now seems the post was Jan 2014.

You didn't give us a link to the post you are referencing but I've managed to unearth it after some searching - here:

The damage done might depend on how successful you were in forcing a square peg into a round hole, so to speak, and which side of the hdmi was making contact.

Probably first you should remove the battery and let the camera sit for a day to make sure everything is discharged then reinstall it and hope for the best. You might need a new USB cable too.

It's odd that Kayihan and others often claim to have fixed something but never say how. By the way, I have solved several of the mathematical paradox's that have puzzled the greatest thinkers for centuries but I'm not gonna tell you how. . .

Daveincaps, the problem is that the Nikon coolpix S6500 has two slots side by side and they are the same not a round hole like the old cameras that have a round hole on them. I found this a bad design on this model because I made the mistake of inserting the one that charges the battery on the HDMI slot. And yes, I agree with you, I was hopping to find the solution to my problem when they said that they had solved theirs.

Since it wasn't designed to fit there, one person's mistake might have a different affect than anothers, depending on which of the hdmi pins were touched by the voltage contacts of the USB cable. So in one case it may be fixable but not in another.

There's not much a user can do to fix a digital camera. If discharging everything and trying it again doesn't work I can't think of anything else but having it repaired or buying a new one.

Here's the product description page for that model:


If you click the 'support' tab there's a download for the manual. Download it and do a word search for 'reset' and see if they have a hard or factory reset. If so that might help.

Removing the battery for a whole day did not help and there is no way to reset the camera, only a whole reset of data on the camera menu.
I contacted Nikon and they asked me to send them the camera for their technicians to see if it can be fixed.

OK. I hope they can get it fixed.
