Hopefully your friend cleaned the battery compartment with something like baking soda to deter the acidic chems of the batteries, without letting moisture get into the rest of the camera. Then, I would take some fine sand paper or steel wool to clean any rust or currosion off the battery contacts. After this, place the new fully charged batteries in position and give it a try. Good Luck!

    If what I suggested above does not help, then your idea about the loose connection may be the primary problem. In that case, you might want to see if there is enough wire visable to reconnect the wire with a more secure connection. If you are not in to soldering wires, consider getting or borrowing a cold solder kit or using electrical tape to try to secure the connection. I know that wires in this area are usually small and may be a problem trying to splice. You might even have to resort to glue to hold the wires together, but soldering is best. If you don't want to pay a repair shop to try this, you might consider asking the electronics class at a nearby school. Sometimes the students will make free repairs for the experience, and often you will find them more competent than their higher priced competition! Hope this helps!

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.
If you need a manual you may download a copy here.

Why is my pictures come out clear and about 1/2 inch dark on the left side

Hi Clairewater, When you say clear, are you saying that there is not any image on the film or it is a good image except for the left side half inch?
The N2000 flash sync is 1/125 of a second, are you shooting higher shutter speeds. If so the shutter begins to close before the flash can fire making a portion of the left side dark. Also, the flash may be overpowering the remaining section of the film blowing it out.
If this happens without flash I would suggest you contact Nikon for a CLA, (Clean Lube Adjust).
The following I have mentioned to others: These cameras are worth $90 and less. As you can see it would cost more to have them fixed than to purchase a used N2000.
Look at, they are the largest used camera company in the USA if not the world. They are in the Atlanta Metro area. Having purchased many items from them I am a very satisfied customer.

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.

Cant get power to Nikon N2000

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.

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