New Batteries Don't Last Long Enough To Reconfigure Camara...

...when it comes time to actually take a picture, "Battery Exhausted” screen shows when the shutter button is pressed. This keeps happening and I can’t get that many quality pictures from a giving set of brand new batteries!

I had the same problem, but I went to Lithium batteries..I received my camera for Christmas, got the batteries day after and have not had to change them as of yet.

    I use rechargeable and they seemed to work. Regular batteries don't.

Battery exhausted warning and eats new duracell without even starting!!


Actually I have this camera and one that didn't stay on without fresh batteries every few minutes was given to me to tinker with. It is a software problem and if you are patient and follow the directions exactly...a simple firmware upgrade should resolve this issue for you.
Go to: http://www.general-imaging.com/us/firmware.html
Locate the blue box on the left that says QUICK LINKS and then click on FIRMWARE UPGRADES and locate your camera model. I hope this is helpful.

Battery exhausted warning


Hello justplainles:

Do the others show the same problem?

Try this: RESET ALL in the menu or setup menu.
If that does not work, make sure that the in the menu (if it is there) you set the battery type to rechargeable not alkaline .
You may try alkaline batteries, if it does the same, the camera may need repair.

Some cameras will not set the battery type automatically.

Camera showing battery exhausted with new batteries


There are three battery type settings in the set up menu: Alkaline, COOLPiX(NiMH) and Lithium. Might be worth looking at. To be continued.

Battery


When batteries are low and they are not used for a period of time, they can build up enough voltage to give a full battery indication. The batteries only had enough power to shoot one image. The batteries are exhausted and need to be replaced or recharged.
