no charge on s9500?

August 16, 2017 at 06:11:54
Specs: Macintosh
you need to follow the directions on p 14:
IN ORDER ONLY: camera off, battery in. 1 plug in to camera body, 2 plug in to adapter, 3. plug adapter into outlet. in 2013 forum woman did not follow directions, then claimed it did not work.

I am sure it will work in any order really, right?

All you are doing is providing power from the outlet to the device via the adaptor and cable.

Lets say I have an iphone

I can either plug the lightning cable into my phone, then into the plug then into the wall

or

Plug the plug into the wall, the cable into the plug then then cable into my phone

or

Cable to phone, cable to plug, plug to wall

in either case the phone WILL charge. I don't understand why the above is so prescriptive???

You'd think so, but the directions might make sense to follow, so the power goes appropriately. Actually, I just got a s9500 at a thrift store, including battery, and it would not charge the battery with a cable I bought just for this; so I bought a new charger, cables and a new battery. It turned out that the old battery was FINE, it just did not charge in the random assembly I made, either via cable/adapter outlet or directly to computer.

so I googled it + found another answer elsewhere [SOLVED: My brand new Nikon Coolpix S9500 will not charge - Fixya} and saw the prior person on this site failed to find an answer or get hers to work, so I thought to let people here know. The site protocol would not let me attach the solution to the old line, and so I started another, to help the next guy.

Any chance you can post/include a link to the previous/olde post - here in your message?

It would tie it all together...

It is in the text above - did not enter as an actual link, but the site is called Fixya, and you can get it from googling: SOLVED: My brand new Nikon Coolpix S9500 will not charge - Fixya.

I tried to put it in but this site would not take the 'paste' of a link. Maybe you can get it from this?

This site accepts links just fine (links are all over these boards), so try again. Here's an example:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I sent answer from my iphone - do not see it registered here. then did so again on my computer - see below.
Although the site was noted in my first post: FIxya. Possibly a competitor to this one.
Had you googled - SOLVED: My brand new Nikon Coolpix S9500 will not charge - Fixya - as I noted, you'd have already found your answer.

evidenty this site only allows a response in time-order of submission, not a response to the actual person, so the little 'reply', cannot be attached to that specific note, only at the end of the line, hence the two responses above, as I tried to post a reply to ONLY ONE of the comments. For the third time it did not get posted as intended, maybe boring any reader beyond the effort to finding a response..

This is a forum run by volunteers and as such does not automatically send responses to a particular person. Responses go to specified posts on the forum and appear in the date/time order that they are received - like most other forums. If you read it again you will therefore see why it made little sense on its own.

As far as I am aware this website can pick up posts from any device that can access a website.

Your original post came up as a new thread on the "digital photo forum", which presumably you had selected.

As we only do this in our spare time we are unlikely to use Google to find out what "questions" are about. That is the responsibility of the poster.

I trust that has clarified the situation on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

No, not really. If you read carefully what I am writing, I meant to help your site + personnel systems.
You have not apprehended the situation.
I did not wish to send a response to a particular person. But where you put "Reply" at the bottom of EACH post, the indication is that the REPLY will be posted just after that remark, not ten places down. When you post the reply far away from the remark, the connection is lost.

When I click on the "reply" offered at the bottom of each post, I expected my REPLY to be posted right next to the one to which I am replying. That would make sense. There would be a logical follow-up. The way I see your site working, you post the Reply so much later in the thread that there is NO connection.

I am glad you think your site picks up many devices. I made an effort to reply early, and it did not catch what I sent. Who knows?

I made a new post because on googling to find answers someone on your site did not have a clue about what she was doing wrong, did all the wrong things, and cost herself money and some technicians unnecessary time. Your site did not allow me to follow up on her problem, so I had to start a new one, but I do not think I chose which one.

I did not expect any volunteer to use google to find out what the question was about: I did expect an interested QUESTIONER to use the resources available, as I did. Clearly, I expected too much.

As noted several times previously: I did post responsibly ALL the information I had.

I hope you can use this to help your site function as you wish it would.

No, I don't get it. Your post was directly into a new thread so unless you included a link it would be difficult for anyone to imagine what it referred to. Changing how "Reply" works would have had no effect on this as it was the only post in the thread. Putting "Reply" next to each response was to save folk having to scroll down to the bottom to reply to the post - something they often didn't understand.

As we are volunteers replying to individuals is not encouraged. We prefer to work as a team which encourages help from a wide range of experience.

However, I am not the webmaster so if he sees this I'm sure he will give it full consideration. He might not see it here but I know he keeps a good eye on "The Lounge" so you may care to post your suggestion there. Alternatively send him a private message using the feature provided. His name is Justin Weber.

EDIT:
If you are unsure where to find the Private Message feature this should locate it:
https://www.computing.net/cgi-bin/m...
The name is case sensitive.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
