Nikon coolpix2100 not turning on

The camera was working fine until one day, when turing it on, only the green LED lit up, while the lens remain closed and the LCD was not turned on. I have tried replacing new batteries and new media card but the problem still exist. The camera does not respond to any input from any of the buttons on the camera. and i can't turn off the green LED using the camera's on/off button. i have to manually take out the batteries

    d manual doesnt say anything about the LED, by the way, the LED lit up continuosly on my cam, bummer

    well, is it inevitable? i had the cam for bout 5 years already,n kinda like d functionality. n it only came with one year warranty.

    i just wanna find out what went wrong. If the whole camera just went dead> no LED, LCD, or lens, then i suspect its d dc/dc converter which can b replaced for a small sum. but i guess the power is not impaired cause d LED is on.

I have had the same problem. Either Tech support or a camera shop suggested that I should expect this as the digital cameras don't last. I am able to still use mine although when I just have to have a picture or two to email. After opening the battery compartment I turn the dial to "Set-up" and turn on. I select welcome screen and select it coolpik and then turn the dial to normal operation. It will take a couple of pictures but often freezes shortly there after. I repeat the same procedure before downloading pictures and it works fine. Tom

    Well it does seem as if it has died on you.
    Contact the makers website tech support.
    How long have you had it?
    Would it be covered by a warranty in your neck of the woods?

I push the on/off button and the camera will not perform

Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Put the battery in and plug in the charger and connect it to the camera. If the power button glows and a green LED flashes it is taking a charge. Do not try to turn the camera on UNTIL you can get it to charge.

Memory Card Indicator always blinks

Since a couple of months, my "out of warranty" D90 is having a problem.

Even after shutting down the unit , sometimes (post of the time) the green led is blinking (at random speed) untill the battery is 100% down (after half a day).
Switching memory card , or formatting memory card does not help.
Even without lens , problem occurs.
I tried also a other battery pack , same problem...

Anyone has an possible reason why this happens , or a 100% working solution.

PS: D90, battery packs and charger are 100% genuine NIKON.
Regards, Rik


Blinking green led even D90 is off

I couldn't find a reference to a blinking green led when the d90 is off.

I would refer you to Nikon tech support for this one.

The above link has 1-800 numbers for Nikon.

My camera worked fine one day, then it was in my purse. When I went to use it the light was on and the screen said there was a lens error. Everytime I try to turn it on now it makes a grinding noise and...

try these:-
  • connect it to pc and on it
  • vaccum the barrel of lens
  • changing mem. card and batt. for 2min.
  • shake it.
  • on and off in different positions
  • hit the part near lens softly with palm (trust me this made mine work)

Wont turn on but light is blinking

Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Lens error

It's effectively irrepairable. Perfect boxed examples in full working order go for an average of £15 on online auction website.
