Camera will not turn on unless I press the 'On' button approx. 42 times
Could someone help me with my problem I am having with a Nikon Coolpix L4? The camera will not go on unless I press the 'On' button repeatedly. The camera works fine once it is on and takes great pictures. But when I turn it off - it is almost as if it has to rest before it goes back on. I have inserted brand new batteries. This is very frustrating. This camera is less than 2 years old. ny assistance you can provide would be great! email@example.com

The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.
Instructions: 1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged. 2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off. 3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic. 4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire. 5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on. 6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.
Answer specifc to this camera as follows: With camera on, push the > button to view saved pictures, when first picture appears in the frame, push "menu" and you will see a prompt to "delete", press "OK" and follow prompts to delete "ALL" pictures. The manual for this camera does NOT provide this info, it only deals with ability to delete one at a time.
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...
