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.

Camera doesn't turn on

Try to clean the corrosion off the battery contacts. If not give it to Nikon they may be a little expensive but they will restore the camera to it's original condition.

Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts. I have seen battery contacts with a thin, transparent coating that came from leaking rechargeable batteries- doesn't look like the usual green crud, but it stops electricity from getting through. Try giving the contacts a scrape- you will need a long thin screwdriver or something of the sort.

The camera was unused for several years.

Try to clean the battery contacts on the camera as it became rusty as well. Then install brand new batteries.

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.

My Nikon N2000 works great but it has one problem , on one side of the battery compartment the two aaa dies very quickly but not the other two aaa batterys

You may have some corrosion under the battery compartment causing a short that drains the batteries. You can safely remove the battery compartment with a small cross point screwdriver. Remove the batteries, there should be 5 screws, The only concern is that some models had wires soldered at the contact end, but most had only spring contacts. Check the backside and end of the compartment for a white or green build up.

Electrical fault, no lights or other response when batteries are installed.

Hi tjambarker, sometimes this is an issue with the battery holder. On my N2000 I had the same issue I needed to disassemble the AAA battery holder clean it then, it worked. Another thing to be aware of is on the camera the springs that hold the battery holder in place have two wires that go into the camera. If there was any battery corrosion it sometimes will travel up those wires causing internal camera corrosion. Off to Nikon it goes. You may be better served purchasing a used one for less than $90.

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!

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.
