Camera is 1.5 yrs old, 30 took pictures fine last weekend. Later that day it wouldn't turn on. After charging it on the docking station from red light to green light, it still won't turn on. I've even charged the battery on the separate wall charger and it also indicates it is fully charged but it will not turn on. When I take the battery out and re-insert it the greed light in the camera blinks once, but when I push the on/off switch nothing happens. This is the original battery and so I have ordered a new one and am awaiting its arrival; however, upon some preliminary Google searching, I find others have similar problems. I am writing for advice/ suggestions beyond "try replacing the battery" because I feel the problem runs deeper than that.

Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.
These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.
When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.
Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards
2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal
5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old
yeah the same thing happened to my camera last month and I just went to the repair place yesterday. Apprently Casio products arent that sturdy so if they get hit the lens can become misalligned and you can't fix it yourself. A new lens is more than the camera itself so if you have to get a new camera I wouldnt suggest another casio one. Good luck.
*** SOLUTION *** Mine had the same problem. My camera works now. What
did the trick for me was removing the Flash Card. It appears card went
bad and the camera would never power on because of this. I just removed
the card and the camera powered on. I tested the card on my printer and
it wont let me read or reformat. Hope this helps. -HenryVerde
There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem.
You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there.
The EasyShare camera dock automatically stops charging the batteries after it registers a full charge, so it is fine to leave the EasyShare digital camera on the EasyShare camera dock for short periods. However, leaving the camera on the dock for longer periods (days or weeks) is not recommended because this can cause problems with your camera and the batteries.
