I have the same problem with camera not turning on.. latest issue is that I took the memory card out and NONE of the 300 pictures are on there now.. could the camera problem have caused all the pictures to vanish?
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...

Sorry to tell you, but your older camera will not work with 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Your camera was designed before SDHC format came out. You'll need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and are easily found on Amazon, just in case your local store no longer carries them. For others reading, there are several other possible causes for memory card problems, with troubleshooting steps that may be viewed here.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use Nikon Transfer, available from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61
Pictures can sometimes be recovered by sending the card to a service provider, or by downloading software designed to recover the pictures from the card.
It is not clear weather the problem is the card or the camera, however to recover the pictures from the card would be the same process. If you do not have one you will need to buy a USB card reader to load the card on the computer.
Consider buying another card to test in the camera, if you so wish. If the camera is new enough also consider contacting the manufacturer for warranty assistance.
