How do I get the blasted lense cover OFF the back of the Nikon J1 lenses ?!?! A crowbar? I'd love to review this camera, I'd love to take some photos to review, but you have made the cover for the back of the swapable lenses for the J1 totally IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE! NEITHER will come off the 10-30 or the other lense with it. Really, do I need a crowbar or pliers? NOTHING about this in the instructions, NOTHING about this in the manual, NOTHING about this on-line.... Why would you do this? It would appear to get it off I would have to use force so strong that it could potentially harm the lense mechanism itself. March 12, 2012

The charger I got came with an adapter on it and I don't know how to remove it. I got teh J1 lens kit and am unsure why it even came with the adapter attached and all the manuals are in a different language. Need guidance on how to remove the adapter to use the charge in US.

Answer: 
Hugo First, it is not the case of it being a 'grey market' charger. To simplify manufacturing, Nikon make a single spec for the MH-27 charger which has a USA plug on the back. For Customers who purchase Nikon equipment abroad, they receive a click on adapter to match their country's electric plugs. The design is such that the adapter clicks into place and locks onto the charger.

To remove the adapter, stick a paper clip in the two exposed holes on the side of the adapter assembly by pushing in, the clips come loose and you can pull the adapter back off of the charging unit. Now it will be back to US compatibility.

A note to Nikon - Perhaps you can make the locking on the adapter not so strong as it is handy to remove it when traveling to the states.

Answer: 
Sounds like you got a "grey market" import version of your camera. Let me guess: you got a good deal on your camera. Unfortunately, what you didn't get was a warranty, or the appropriate accessories for the US market. Sad to say, some people game the system for their own advantage, and people such as yourself end up paying the price for being taken in by unscrupulous sellers. The bad news is, the only way you can "fix" your adapter is to buy a new one -- either from your local authorized Nikon dealer, or from the Nikon store. "Grey" items are not supported by Nikon USA.

when i plug the battery onto the charger it blinks a green light. Does that mean it's charging? I noticed that the charger has 3 lights but it only flashes a green light for the big one.

Hi,

I am going to Europe in May, and I was wondering if this charger works like the coolpix charger with 220 volts? If not, what would you suggest we do?

Answer: 
Although Nikon doesn't state it clearly, yes, this charger is multi-voltage. Just beware that you might need a wall plug adapter while overseas.
