Coolpix L105

by shawnstatted / August 2, 2013 11:38 PM PDT

Well, this bad boy has been used alot, never dropped or anything. Took really good care of it honestly, and out of no where, it decides not to turn on anymore. Not even make the zoom sound when inserting new batteries. Battery life was always sucked out when using the camera, so I had new and old batteries laying around. After a while the camera wouldn't turn on. I was thinking it was the batteries. I set out and bought some rechargeable energizer batteries (the ones that are recommended for cameras), and upon charging them and putting them in... it still wouldnt turn on.

Looking up online, I found that Heavy Duty batteries would drain and destroy the camera. Which sounded weird, but I did use cheap heavy duty batteries. Is there any way I can open it, or is there a specific battery I have to stick to now?

Heavy Duty batteries are not recommended as they do not furnish enough power.
Alkaline batteries are recommended.
Rechargeable NIMH batteries are recommended.

If new batteries do not make the camera work.
Try taking out the memory card (it could be shorted).
That is about all you can do to fix the problem.

Repairs would cost more than the camera is worth.
You can buy a used L105 for about $60.

If you are good at working with small objects (like watch repair) you might figure out how to get it open.
Then what?
I don't know of any repair manuals.
If you need parts, what then?
I have never taken a camera apart.
Anyone with ideas ... here is the time to jump in!

I know one person bound and determined and they collected a few more of the same but broken cameras off ebay. For the money they could have got a working one but who can question a person's motivation on this?

I didn't.
