Replace the battery. After you turn it off for a while, the battery comes back just enough to allow operation for a short time. After that time is over, the camera doesn't operate. Then if it sits for a while, the battery can power the camera for another short time.

Nixon coolpix l810 will not turn on just replaced batteries wondering if batteries are the issue

When switching it on you have to be sure you remove the lens cap beforehand as an error message will be displayed. If you do not see an error message and the cap is off, you might not have the updated firmware version 1.1. Nikon's website states:
"When some new AA lithium batteries were inserted in the camera and the camera was turned on, the camera sometimes failed to function. This issue has been resolved."

Hello I have an older Camera CD33 and afer a longer time I tried to operate it again but got only a message that the function fails. No Objective came out and really nothing happened. I opened safely the...

Hello Mr. Hermann
I prefer the "trailing edge" of technology myself. Tried and true, right?
Oldtimer or not, I'd bet you're using a powerhouse of a computer, and obviously you had no problem getting here. :).

Deducing from the statement "and afer a longer time I tried to operate it again but got only a message that the function fails" and since the camera uses up some battery juice while it's turned OFF, I concluded that the batteries may be at fault.

The reason nothing happens when you try to turn the camera ON is usually because the batteries are just too weak.

The proper battery for that camera is the Lithium type, and likely costs around $15.00 but it lasts a long time, if you don't use the flash a lot.
Give it a try and see what happens.

If you like to bother with that, there are rechargeable alternatives, but they must be the Li-Ion type. The price varies, and maybe you can check it out online, or with a place that sell cameras and such.
A specialty camera store likely have higher prices.

I have one charger and two batteries, so while I'm using one battery, the other one is charging.

I always get a turn off and turn on message when I start it and black screen

This error message is something related to the mechanical operation of lens of the Camera.
Please try initializing the Camera and check if that helps.

Reset the Camera by removing the battery while the Camera is ON and reinsert the battery after a minute and turn on the Camera.

If the issue is not resolved the Camera needs to be serviced, as it will be the issue with the hardware part of the Camera.

Reinsert cassette message

Believe it or not, after having the same problem "re-insert cassette" and "reattach power source", and after talking to Sony and them telling me it would be $111.00 to repair, I hit mine with the palm of my hand twice on each side and twice on the back by the battery and it actually worked--haha Go Figure!!

Lens error 115,1,0,0

Hey Sarchezz,
I can't tell you how much it would cost to get fixed because without looking at the camera itself an authorized service technician would not be able to even guess, but often the price of camera repairs exceeds the value of the camera. A few things I would try first are removing the batteries and letting the camera sit for a minute or two and then reinserting them, remove the batteries and the memory card then reinsert the batteries only which should give you an error message and then reinsert the memory card, and you could also try placing the camera flat on a table and press and hold the shutter button and then turn the camera on. If none of these suggestions work I would have an estimate done by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Cyber-shot w50 zoom problems

If this error message appears, turn off the camera and remove the batteries for 30 seconds. Afterwards, reinsert the batteries and turn the camera back on. Perform a manual reset of the camera. Once you perform this it will be back to factory settings and you will lose any pictures stored on your camera.
