Question about Nikon COOLPIX Cameras
Used battery from a different S3100 and same thing happened. Camera drained new battery while turned off. Is there a setting I need to change to prevent this from happening?
All of my research yields that this is a very common problem with this camera and there appears to be no solution that has been shared yet...that's why I didn't list this as a solution....sorry for not being able to help.

These cameras have a internal battery that holds data for the camera to keep its settings. These batteries can be replaced but the camera has to be disassimboled to change it they should be able to be changed at a local camera shop pretty cheap.

Make sure you have the internal menu for the battery selection correct.
Choosing the wrong battery may cause this.
Rechargeable batteries and alkaline batteries are not the same.
This may also be a condition and problem caused by the camera itself, and may need repair.

Is this a new or different style lens? You may not have it all the way on and aligned - try removing it again. Just remember to always turn off the camera before removing the lens or the SD card. Malfunctions are sure to follow if that happens. Try resetting the camera by holding down the two buttons on the top with the green dots for longer than 2 seconds (that works with the D80) The camera will not come on if the lens is not "on".

I just had this problem today myself, and looked everywhere online for a solution. I changed the batteries (to Panasonic), and it didn't help. But i tried different batteries (Energizers) and the camera started working again.
