It's the way that the camera reads the "energy left" that is the problem. Not all AA batteries are the same. Basically the default setting is (at least in the UK and US versions) set to ALKALINE AA batteries. If you are getting the "battery exhausted" message after putting new AAs in, chances are your batteries are not ALKALINE. You can either buy some new AA Alkaline specific batteries (eg: Duracell make them and they say specifically alkaline on the side). Or you can try to keep power on long enough to press MENU, then go to the "spanner" tab, then select "Battery Type", and select either Lithium AA if that is what you are using, or NI-MH versions. Stupide NIKON don't tell you this anywhere, and I have already chucked one of their products because of it, when actually it was fine. (Jake, Newcastle, United Kingdom, December 2012).

Check your Catyletic convetor it may be plugging you exhast. If there is a bad smell @ the tail pipe it's more likely, another sign is a rattling sound from the convertor area when the engine is still not @ running temp. If your exhast is plugged up you will have poor performance @ higher engine RPM's

The problem may be with your SMPS or Motherboard CPU exhast fan. Try blowing off all the dust accumulated onto your CPU exhaust fan. Also reduce the temperature level to autoshutdown in BIOS setup (if applicable)

Most likely it could be a vavle or it could be something with the exhast. Hope for the exhast. Replacing vavles are costly.

My 99 had the same problem and my mechanic found that the honeycomb in the catyletic converter had broken loose and was lodged at the opening of the pipe sideways, limiting the exhast flow. Once I replaced the catyletic converter the problem was solved.
