Camera was not dropped, nor had it gotten wet, but won't turn on. Is this a common problem with Nikon Coolpix? It's been a great camera and I'd hate to lose it, but repair estimate of $200.00 is silly to even consider. Repair shop claims the entire power system is " fried " and I can't think of anything that would have caused it .

I don't think it's particularly a common problem with that camera but any device can suddenly fail without warning. An internal short, for instance, is capable of zapping the power system.

Not a lot you can do about it I'm afraid.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Saying it's 'fried' is shop-speak for 'we don't know what's wrong with it'.

I assume the battery, charger and battery connections were checked?
