    I've had the Nikon L4 for a little over a year and have the same problem of the camera not turning on. It's as if it's frozen or something. After letting it sit for a while, it may turn on. It has become quite frustrating to say the least. Brand new lithium batteries

    The camera worked for about 6 months since then it will not turn on reliably. Changing batteries does not help. When we can get it to turn on it works normally. Has spoiled one vacation.

    I have the same problem, most of the time, I can get camera to activate after about seven or eight attempts.

    After I put brand new batteries in it, and reset settings back to factory, the problem has not resolved itself.

I have the same problem. I can only turn the camera on once and then I have to wait a day before it will turn back on.  I discovered that if I take out the SD card, I can turn the camera on. Then (while the camera is on) I put the SD card back in.  It's a pain in the ****, but it works.

Cool the camera off! I stick mine in the freezer for 5 mins and then it will turn on. Dunno why!

What batteries work with this camera

The L4 uses two AA batteries. You can use disposable alkalines and lithiums, or rechargable NiMHs and NiCads. Make sure you use two of the same type. If you use rechargables, you'll have to charge them outside the camera using a separate charger.

My lightly used nikon coolpix s570 has developed a power issue. Meaning that with a fully charged battery, the camera won't turn on. sometimes removing and reinserting the battery will get it to turn on....

If you have a second battery, fully charge it and try it. If you do not have a second battery, it make either be a defective battery or a battery that is not properly charging. Try powering on the camera until you get it powered up, either by reinserting the battery or turning it one. Then purposely use the flash and focus until you totally exhaust the battery. Then charge it for the recommended time. Try the battery in the camera once more. Also look into the battery compartment and make sure there is no corrosion. After these actions, the only other thing I could suggest is trying a new battery or sending it in for repair. Usually it is the battery though.

Digital camera problem NIKON coolpix l4

I have the problem by turning on... But the camera start when I press about 10-15 times on the switch. I think the problem is not coming from the switch because by turning of, it goes the first time.
I have tryied to take the batteries or/and the memory card out but it doesn't help. By taking out the memory card I never lost the pictures...

Red blinking clock on nikon coolpix L4

The clock isn't set OR it's been a while since you used the cmaer OR you let it sit on low charged/dead battery for too long. Either way, update the date and time and it should go away.

Clock battery won't recharge

Change to Ni-Mah rechargeables at the highest capacity you can find. If still in trouble it will suggest the internal battery has died - and a replacement is a repair job which will be pricey if feasible So just live without that feature.
