Camera will not turn on!

On/Off black switch contact(inside camera not in proper position) might have to turn so the outside On/Off switch makes contact with black contact inside camera. Had to remove all screws seen on exterior of case/cover. Remove cover by inserting small flathead screw driver into slots and gently prying back cover from main body of camera. Good Luck!

The generic "weak battery" theory doesn't apply here. The problem is with the camera. The camera has developed either weak solder joins or weak interconnects between circuit boards and battery terminals.

The simple solution is to give the upper conner of the camera (next to shutter botton) a whack in your (other) palm, and it will most likely work again. If not, it needs to be disassembled and repaired, but it is not worth the trouble and cost for such a POS.

Batteries don't last forever. Are you using rechargable batteries, or AA cells? If you use AA cells make sulre they are fresh alkaline type batteries of a good brand. Cheap batteries don't have the juice to runn cameras fopr very long.

Also check the contacts in your camera and on the batteries to make sure they are not damaged or dirty.

You will have to contact Nikon about any warranty claims. The standard warranty seems to be 1 year.
I have found that there is a firmware update for this camera that allows for support for Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (the original firmware only supported alkaline or lithium batteries). Try that firmware update to see if it resolves your issue.

I have the same problem with my Coolpix L100. On 27 December 2010 after taking a few shots with flash, using rechargable batteries for one year, it displayed in Hungarian that the batteries are depleted, but after I have recharged them, the camera did not start again anymore, displaying in continue that the batteries are depleted, and it turn off itself after a few seconds. I think that the problem is with the sensor of the camera that should measure the battery status, because even if I had new batteries it desplayed an icon with half battery but I never let it depleted totally so far. Now I am wondering if NIKON will offer free service for it as I have bought it just about 16 months ago in the Romanian DOMO market chain.

My pentax m20 optio wont turn on.. it says battery deplete..


Hi there - these are older posts, but I just experienced this problem (it appears to be pretty common). The fix I discovered (that works), is to insert your batteries (make sure they're fresh), and then press and hold the "on" button plus "Menu" button, together at the same time. Hold until the firmware resets (a message will pop up on screen and the camera will reset). Voila! It works again for as long as the batteries are in and operational. Also note that in my case, if the batteries are taken out, I have to go thru the reset process again, but at least I have the camera back up and running. Hope this helps others!!

Battery depleted


Check your Manual that the correct type of battery has been selected.
If this is the case and it is a good fresh or fully charged battery
and the camera is still not responding, take the batteries out and clean the contacts in the battery chamber.- A Pencil with a rubber[eraser] on the end will do the internal ones.
If youare still in trouble - presume the camera has died.

Battery depleted


Sounds like the battery might be defective/worn out. If it's AA batteries (a.k.a. R6) try with a pair of good-quality alkaline batteries to see if it works then. Cheap batteries often doesn't have enogh "umph" to power cameras.
