Nikon coolpix 5600/4600 - won't turn on

I've had this digital camera for 2 years with no problems. Now it won't turn on. I've changed batteries (3 times) and they are alkaline batteries (not rechargeable). According to the Nikon Guide, these should work OK and they have for two years. Can you help resolve this or give me some other suggestions on what I can try? Thanks!

    Yeah, my camera won't turn on either. I've changed the memory and the batteries, but it's as useful as a brick at this point. I thought it may have been because the part holding the batteries in broke off (really poor design there), but I've duct taped it down and it still won't work. The light that turns on when you turn the camera on blinks on and off...but it doesn't do anything else.

    Help?

I had the some problem... found a fix on another thread here on fixya...
hold the power button and at the same time press the play button.

Mine turned on after about 3-4 seconds of holding them down together!

Just had this problem. Did as directed above and the camera did come on, but said "Battery Exhausted". Batteries tested good on two different battery testers, but the current needed to operate the camera was evidently not there. The batteries were Duracell MN1500. I usually use Energizer Industrial cells which never do this to me, but I ran out whilst in the field. Battery chemistry differs between manufacturers.

Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. Two to three years is the normal lifespan. Buy a new battery.

My nikon coolpix 5700 will not turn on, i have bought new battery for it and it just won't turn on. what do i do?


Pleaseremove the Battery from the camera and give a look inside the batterycompartment. Use a spot light & make sure that place are clean , not rusted& the battery connector pin are not bend or broken. After that insert thefully charged battery and try to turn on. If its not turn on then its confirmthe camera internal power supply unit is faulty. For few reason this problemstarted.1. Theconnectivity cable from camera to Circuit board damaged or disconnected.OR2. Thepower supply transformer stop working & need to replacement.OR3. turnon button connection may disconnected.

After visual checking by the technician is possible to say which part isfaulty.
For the confirmation you need to visit a camera repair store. With outvisual survey technician can't confirm you which one of them is faulty. Thankyou.

My Nikon coolpix l20 wont turn on and the batteries are fine. What do i do?



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

I've had some S3000's become gimmicy when connecting to a computer. The easiest way I've found to get photos off of the camera is to use a card reader connected to your computers USB.

I cannot activate Nikon Coolpix S210 (problem with ON/OFF button)


had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.
