Nikon coolpix 2100 camera won't stay on

Even with fresh batteries, the camera shuts off before fully starting up. Any ideas?

Meantime, my daughter has a different model coolpix and we're starting to have problems with that one shutting down after a few pictures are taken on new batteries.

Re: nikon coolpix 2100 camera won't stay on

I've been having problems with the batteries and the camera refusing to start even with fresh batteries. I bought loads of new rechargable batteries and have finally found some that work. Duracell rechargables. Theyr'e brilliant and keep their charge for ages despite continuous use of the camera! Last summer I managed to take 975 photos before the batteries finally decided to give up!

Many new digital new cameras will shut off in about 3 minutes of idle time to conserve the battery.

Nikon coolpix camera dropped. displays 'lens error' on screen


The technically correct solution would be to dis-assemble, clean, re-lubricate and reassemble the lens assembly or better yet, seek repair from a authorized service center or a qualified professional. However, a non-technical workaround maybe possible. This would require thumping the bottom of the camera against the palm of one's hand while powering on. The idea is to jar the lens back into action. Please bear in mind that the opposite could also hold true, the lens would be more stuck.

Another possibility is insufficient power even with new/fresh or fully charged batteries. It maybe that the camera is not receiving sufficient power to engage/retract the lens fully. Possibly, the battery terminals/contacts of the camera has developed a resistive coating of corrosion. Please try:
  • clean the battery contacts of the camera (cotton buds maybe used);
  • it may be necessary to scrape them to expose fresh metal (a nail file would serve the purpose);
  • in some instances, it may even be needed to stretch/bend them a bit (a pair of tweezers could do the job).
The idea is to afford these contacts to offer more pressure to the batteries ensuring full power delivery.

If problem persists, you need to call Nikon.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Nikon L12 Battery Fault

I don't know if I have the very same problem with my old nikon Coolpix E44600. I may go through the pictures I have already taken but when I try to take a new one, just as I shoot I get the message the "battery exausted" message and the camera shut down.

My camera freezes like this when the battery starts to run low. I think it has something to do with the flash. I just leave it to sort itself out for a few minutes even though I'm usually missing some good photo opportunities n eventually it sorts itself out. Trick is not to keep turning it on and off, and fiddling with the dial.

I just purchased a new battery door for $15 with shipping from nikon. They sent a simple assembly diagram and I was able to replace the door in 30 minutes. I used a dremel to cut the old door off, but you dont have to do that. I got a little impatient.

Just buy the plastic piece and u can reuse the metal parts for your old battery door.
