Most likely a new battery. Rechargeable batteries are only meant to last a couple of years at most. This is regardless of how often you use them.

My battery will not charge


First, you did not say how old the battery is. Rechargeable batteries do not last forever and if left on the shelf for prolonged periods can discharge to the point that the suffer permanent damage and will not take or hold a charge. Most rechargeables last for about three years give or take. It could be that your battery simply needs replacement. You identified your camera as a Coolpix 3200, I presume you mean an S3200.

Start by removing the battery from your camera and making sure that the battery contacts in the camera and on the battery is clean. Dirt and grease can prevent the charging current from flowing to your batteries. If they are dirty. A new pencil eraser can be rubbed against the contacts both in the camera and on the batteries to remove any oils or residue. Next, I would try to charge the battery again.

If that does not work, replace the battery. Your camera takes a model EN-EL19. Since new batteries normally have a partial charge on them, I would first see if the camera will power up and take a picture. If so, the next step is to see If the new battery will charge in your camera. If it does, you have solved your problem. If not, the camera's charging circuit may be at fault. If that is the case, you have two choices. You can send the camera Nikon USA for repair or, if the camera otherwise functions correctly, you can save the cost of repair by purchasing a model MH-66 external battery charger and charging your battery outside the camera.

If you need to send your camera in for repair, you can call Nikon USA Service at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday for assistance or go to there website (link below). They will give you a free repair estimate if your camera is out of warranty.

Kodak Z980 battery wont last.


I always buy an extra battery or two for my cameras. Sometimes if batteries are over charged [left in the charger for days] or charged too often [charge again after just a few minutes of use each time] they won't hold a charge. Or it could have been a bad battery to begin with. Get a new one and be happier for just a few dollars. Hope that helps, it's what I do.

Why wont my sanyo vc-e760 hold a charge


Since you've already tried different batteries, you have a couple of other options...
  • Instead of plugging the USB cable into the camera's wall charger, plug it into the USB port of a computer, or even into a USB phone charger.
  • Try another wall charger.
  • Try another USB cable.
Here's the PDF manual for your camera, if you need it: http://us.sanyo.com/dynamic/extranet/servicers/VPCT1495.pdf
(Page 16 contains info about charging the camera)

Battery depletes after 60 seconds


I'm afraid that the battery you bought as new, in fact is a battery that was in the shop for years, and can't hold enough power.
If you camera works normal for one minute and does not run hot or even gets warm, I think the battery is not as good as you think.
Can't find since when the camera is around, but my guess is the camera is not that new anymore.
Please recharge the battery and use it, and than recharge it again It could take a few charge cycles, before the battery gets its full capacity, but don't expect wonders.

Charging camera


I think that your batteries may have expired due to old age and are refusing to hold a charge.

Ni cad batteries have a shelf life and once that time limit has expired, you need to replace the batteries with new ones which will begin counting down to their expire date and also go dead.
once ni cad batteries have expired and past their time limit
nothing can be done to revive them ,they are forevermore dead and must be replaced.

that is the reason why i buy 120 volt ac drills instead of battery powered drills which are always dead by the time i need to use them and wont hold a charge when i try to recharge them.

my cordless radio phone batteries go dead after 1 hour on the phone, when they were newer,i could talk for 4 hours and still have 1/4 charge left. soon they will only last 30 minutes and need a 12 hour recharge to come back to 4 bars.
so i expect to have to pay 4 new batteries by christmas.

One other option may be that your charger is not working properly and developing the required voltage.
that also happens but not as often as dead batteries that wont hold a charge.
if you have a radio shack nearby, even if its a 20 mile drive
they can test your batteries and also test your battery charger. just ask for a salesman that has a battery tester and a vom [volt,ohm,milli amp meter] also called a multi meter. The vom will test your charger and came also test your batteries, but most salesmen dont know enough about the vom to use it as a battery tester .

PS a battery tester is just a vom scaled down for battery testing only, made easy to use for dummies.

My sd 600 wont turn on i even charged it nothing happens


Hi, With how old that model is it's likely that the battery isn't able to hold a charge anymore, I'd suggest buying a new battery to correct the problem.

It will charge but after i take it off it wont turn on at all


That means the battery of your camera can't hold a charge. The light on your camera or battery indicating that it's charging flashes whenever it detects any power being wired into the device, not necessarily that the battery is holding power. Depending on what camera model and brand you have, you should contact their customer support for a new battery.
Cheers.

Battery won't charge on casio ex-z77 exilim


It's a known Fault with the NP-20 battery don't order one and pay for it, ring or e-mail casio customer service they should send you one out for free!! When you receive the new one don't let it die, make sure and keep it partially charged at all time or the charger won't recognize it. Really casio should recall this battery but for some reason they insist on replacing faulty batteries with more faulty batteries!??!
