I had the same problem, here is how I fixed it: Make sure batteries are fully charged, Open the cover of memory compartment, the red LED is flashing, it means that there is a reading error. I reset the camera (under the output connection cover), took off the memory chip, and replaced with a spare one, then it powered on and prompt to date/time set up. Let me know if this works for you.

These posts are pretty old but, I got a Coolpix last year at staples. its a 140 dollar camera. about a week after that it wouldn't work. I tried charging it with no success so I gave up. I decided to try to get it to work again. some times it will say the battery is exhausted but most the time it wont even turn on. I have been trying to charge it for a while now and it still wont work. what should I do?
when you powered your camera, there is not any kind of indication, no one can help you,just go to hp shop.
dont leave batteries in camera when it is not in use.
dont incert hot, fully charged battery in camera.
so take care, good luck...

It sounds like the memory card got corrupted. If the memory card shows no files, there are no files. I'm sorry, but they're gone. Are you SURE the pictures aren't on your computer? Most cameras delete the pictures AFTER it copies them to your computer.
if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.
Are you sure it is dead or is it simply that liveview is not showing? A friend of mine thought hers was dead the other week but liveview was turned off. Try taking a few photos and see if it actually takes them?
YOU MIGHT TRY TO CLEAN THE CAMERA'S BATTERY CONTACTS WITH A PENCIL ERASER. IF ALL ELSE FAILS, WAS IT BOUGHT ON A CHARGE CARD AND CAN YOU RETURN IT TO THE STORE OR A NEARBY BRANCH STORE? USE THE WARRANTY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
I also had this problem. I think it is caused when the camera is turned off while in the viewing part of the camera. That is, I had gone to look at the video that I had just taken, but didn't and then turned the camera off. The camera is then as you have described it.
The only way I could get it back to normal is to connect the camera to the computer, using the cable, and download the photos and videos. When the download is complete, disconnect the camera and it should be OK.
Good luck, cheers. Phil
