Service Advisory


To Owners of the COOLPIX S33 digital still camera:

Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.

Nikon will offer a service for updating COOLPIX S33 to version 1.1 firmware. Details of this firmware service are as follows.

Firmware update details

We have confirmed that when the EH-73P/EH-73PCH charging AC adapter is connected to a COOLPIX S33 (with battery inserted) via the USB cable supplied with the camera, a slight noise may occur which may cause some static on FM radio channels when a radio is being used in very close proximity. This issue does not occur when the EH-71P/EH-71PCH charging AC adapter is used.

Once this firmware is updated, any issue of possible  noise will be resolved.

Confirming current camera firmware

  1. Switch on the camera
  2. Press the lower left button (Setup Menu / Wrench icon / Camera Settings)
  3. Use the directional button on the right to scroll down to "Ver: Firmware version", press the bottom button to view the version.
  4. If the camera reads version 1.1, then this update is not necessary.
