I would try some CLR on the end of a Q tip and scrub down all of the contact points to clean off any corrosion. Then I'd use the eraser end of a pencial and remove any last bits of residue. Then reinstall batteries and try it. If iyt still doesn't work, then it is not a cost effective fix. You can get a replacement used, working N2000 (or F-301...its the same camera) on eBay for no more than $25.

Will a nikon n2000 turn on without a lens and film?

The camera should operate perfectly fine without a lens. It should also operate perfectly fine without film (other than for not taking any pictures, of course).
I know this is stupid, but make sure the batteries are inserted in the proper direction. Then make sure the film advance mode selector around the shutter release button is not in the "L" position. L is for Lock, S is for single-frame, and C is for continuous.

How do i turn on my nikon n2000

A real stumper, isn't it? The reason you can't find a on/off switch is that there isn't one. You turn the camera on by lightly pressing the shutter button, and it will turn off when it times out.

Nikon N2000 will not turn on to advance film. batteries ok

Make sure there is no corrosion on the battery contacts. If a battery corroded only a little it can foul the contacts enough so no power gets to the camera. Use a pencil eraser and scrub the contacts until shiney. This is the most common problem I have with it.

N2000 will not Turn ON

Hi Oskarr900, The corrosion may have eaten away at small wires that are on the springs that hold the battery holder in the camera. Notice those wires go into the plastic camera body. If that has happened the camera will need to go in to Nikon. These cameras are only worth $90 or less so you may want to look into purchasing a used N2000.

There is a collar that is around the shutter release button. You lift the collar and turn it.
