    i have used regular batteries previously and now i have the same issue where the camera just wont turn on. does that mean i still have to go to lithium? because im not sure if that would even make a difference considering regular batteries worked fine for the past year or so.

Some cameras require special higher voltage lithium batteries to operate. Try lithium batteries before you assume your camera is broken.

Power on green light on coolpix L18 is blinking. Why? Camera won't work.


This might not work with all cameras, but try it anyway...

Take out your battery and memory card. Put them back in with the battery being first. Try and charge.

You might still have problems charging with the USB lead to the camera. In such a case, you should buy a proper charger that you can put the battery into and charge it. Sometimes charging through the camera doesn't work.

My Nikon Coolpix L18 shuts off automatically whilst im recording video. Please help!


Regardless of the size of the memory card, the largest video file you can create on the L18 is 2GB. You can stop recording one clip and then record another and another, and then combine them on a computer to create longer clips.
In a Hollywood movie, you seldom see individual scenes as long as five minutes in length. They're usually put together from much shorter clips, changing viewpoints and camera angles.

My Nikon Coolpix L18 camera is sayi ng battery exhausted and I just replaced batteries


I have the same camera. I am working out an issue where it shuts off while I'm recording videos. But anyway, my solution for you is relatively simple.

Take a q-tip and dip it in rubbing alcohol. Remove the batteries from the camera, and clean the terminals with the q-tip. This should help remove and prevent the buildup of battery acid.

Put the new bateries back in. If they do not work, replace them with rechargeable batteries. I reccomend rechargeable because they are built better. If you don't want to spend the money on them, look into buying lithium. Duracell sells nice lithium batteries.

I personally reccomend Durracel Lithium batteries from my own personal experience.

Hope I helped!

Recharging


The L18 takes two AA batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries you will need to recharge them outside the camera. To save weight, space, and cost, the camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry.

Lens error message on nikon coolpix L18 I purchased my Nikon L18 Cool Pix camera last September ('08). Last week when I turned it on, the lens extended fully, then retracted fully as I got a "lens error"...


Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.
