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.

Your camera is designed for four AA batteries. Make sure the positive and negative poles are correct. If it is like my Nikon N series camera bodies, there should be yellow labels inside the battery compartment to indicate polarity. The door is spring loaded. Don't over force it or you may brake it.

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.

We put new batteries in a Nikon EM and the light does not come on when battery is check...they are in correctly. Does anyone know how a light meter can get broken?

The battery check is by pressing a very small silver button on the top plate by the shutter release and the little red light come on right? there is only two small button batteries in the EM but without them it's a brick. So look inside the battery compartment and at the bottom you will see a spring piece of metal which the batter makes contact with. If it is corroded then you will have to clean that off to make contact again. Take a new pencil with a new unused red rubber eraser and form a piece of sand paper over the end of the pencil and tape it securely. Lightly twist the pencil back and forth between your fingers to sand off the corrosion, make it shinny. Blow out the dusty dirty stuff with a puffer make sure the batteries are installed correctly. Yes I know you said the batteries were in the right way install the batteries check wiht the battery test button. Also don't forget the EM is a totally battery dependent camera for the meter AND the meter will not work until you have the frame counter at frame # 1 and beyond. My Nikon EM has been slightly modified yours might not be the same but I can close the back and advance the lever trip the shutter and again until it reaches frame one and then the light meter works. Cheers great little camera hope you get it working

Camera will not power up

If like most film cameras this one has been sitting for a while unused the batteries are most likely dead AND there might be a considerable amount of corrosion in the battery compartment. All that corrosion needs to be removed before your F100 will work again.

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.

What type battery the N2000 uses. It seems that AA and AAA would not fit.

I know you say that A and AAA batteries don't fit, the the camera calls for (4) 1.5 V AAA-batteries. There are no other batteries that I am aware of that either resemble or replace that size and style of battery. You may want to try again. I hope this helps and good luck!

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.

Corroded batteries

Use rubbing alcohol on the contacts and the solder joints. A few drops on every spot seen. Let dry over night & try the next day
