Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

Battery EXTREMELY Exhausted

I bought my digital camera (Nikon Coolpix 3) about a year ago. On Friday, May 18, I hosted a party which I planned to photo-document. I had taken about three pictures when the camera gave me the "Warning: Battery Exhausted" message. I thought, "no big deal, get new batteries." I replaced the batteries with brand new ones and immediately received the "Warning: Battery Exhausted" message upon turning it on. I have tried at least 5 more pair of batteries from different manufacturers and continually turn on the camera only to receive the "Warning: Battery Exhausted" message. Please help.

    This has not been a problem in the past year, I have simply used regular Double A Duracells, Energizers, etc.

It turns out it wasnt using up the batteries because even brand new batteries won't make it work. ANy suggestions???

As the other person says Nimh rechargable batteries are the best....Also somewhere in the menu system you will find that you need to define which type of battery you are using, this may be the cause...Nikon UK have an excellent after care team if all else fails.

    The problem is NOT with the batteries.
    We bought 2 of these cameras, one is good the other is not ... we swapped batteries and it all points to a fault in the camera NOT the batteries!



You MUST use rechargeable batteries , like NiMh , with charger for that kind of battery , and your problem will go ...

Try using a cloth with alcohol and wipe battery terminals and insert a new battery may help give us a clue to go to another step.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 battery won't charge

I have had mine for over 3 years and this just started happening. I bought a new battery and it seemed to fix the problem for about a week but is doing it again. It seems like it won't fully charge now like it formerly did!

Purchased my nikon coolpix s4100 3 weeks ago and it says battery exhausted. what should i do?

We own a Nikon Coolpix camera as well, which uses regular AA or rechargeable AA batteries.
Assuming you have tried new batteries, (if you haven't, try new alkaline batteries), it's probably time to get a warranty replacement.

You might want to also look at the battery connections inside the camera to make sure they are clean and making good contact with the batteries.

Good luck

I've only had my Nikkon CoolPix for a month with only 100 pictures and keep getting the battery exhausted. I keep changing the batteries, but I keep getting the same message. Helo!

The Nikon CoolPix 3200 has an unusual battery selection AND also needs the type of battery being used to be selected in the set up menu. The default is Alkaline, if you are not using Alkaline this function may be part of your rapid discharge. What I would suggest is to switch to a "good" set of Ni-MH batteries, generally these can be bought as a set/kit with a charger. If you have a manual what I'm referring to is on pages 18 and 19. For changing the setting for battery type can be found on page 96. The battery choices for this camera can be confusing to anyone. Happy Holidays from Robert in Canada

I was taking pictures with my new Nikon coolpix s6000 and it died. When I plugged it in it just said battery exhausted!

A newly bought camera is not necessarily fully charged. Read instructions about first charging. Enjoy your camera.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries

you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in 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 in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

Battery Problem

ITS NOT THE BATTERIES -- check out the internet (google "nikon coolpix battery exhausted" and you'll see hundreds of people are experiencing this glitch. best fix i've found so far: remove batteries and memory card, then replace batteries and try again. Maybe firmware update works too, but this fix is not confirmed.

Battery Problem

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.
