Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera
I was using my Coolpix L18 tonight and eventually got a message saying "batteries exhausted." Wasn't surprised, so I put in new batteries. Same message. Thought perhaps the batteries were old. Have put in new ones twice more and still getting a "batteries exhausted" message. Is this fixable--by me (so far my calls to Nikon haven't been too productive)?
How could I resist assisting someone with the handle 'Charm City'? What I would advise is getting some good quality 2300 mAH or 2500 mAh re-chargeable batteries - although all batteries have a nominal 1.5v output, not all can provide the sustained power necessary for the camera.

Try this, it may work without the software. Turn off the camera. Plug the usb cable between the camera and the computer. Turn on the camera. If a box pops up on the computer asking what you want to do, scroll down and see if there is an option to view pictures. If a window opens up with all your pictures on it, great. Now open up a folder where you want to put your pictures. Bring up the other window with the pictures in it and hit the control key and the d key at the same time on your keyboard. Then drag your pictures to the window where you want them and let go of the mouse key. They should all move over. Then you can use Windows image viewer to see them. Let me know if that works.

i have this camera and i had the same problem
everytime i put in new batteries like 5 seconds later the battery was exhusted i tried cheap and expensive batteries but nothing seemed to work
i would recomend rechargealbe batteries because they last longer but if you prefer one-time use batteries you should change they battery type in the menu/ setup
hope this helps!! good luck

you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..
