Nikon Coolpix P4 Troubleshooting

Coolpix Won't Turn On ¶ 

Hold Switch On ¶ 

Drained/Bad Battery ¶ 

If the camera won't turn on the mostly likely cause is defective batteries. Make sure batteries are charged and the battery contacts are clean. The battery could possibly be dead; to verify this, test the battery with a voltmeter. If a voltmeter is not available there are certain distinct signs that indicate a dead or dying battery. If the battery holds its charge for only a short time or if the battery doesn't charge, it needs to be replaced. Nikon Coolpix P4 Battery Replacement

If the crack hinders normal operation, the screen must be replaced. Nikon Coolpix P4 LCD Screen Replacement
