My camera won't work at all it just says batteries depleted even with new batteries

This camera is only a few months old but of course the warranty has already expired. i can turn the camera on for a total of about 3 seconds. the screen shows batteries depleted, and shuts down instantly. i have replaced the batteries several times with brand new batteries, but the same thing happens. i have used alkaline batteries but have not tried the lithium batteries. if anyone has had this problem or has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it.

    Even when I try using new batteries, they get depleted real fast... Like after taking 4 or 5 pics. Then camera shuts down.

Found the problem, and very easy to fix.
It seems that the type of metal used by HP to conduct voltage from the battery cage to the pc board is of a poor quality, and causes extreme volt drop to the pc board.(due to premature corrotion)
The solution is to simply clean the battery terminals inside the battery cage by using sanding paper, or even an emery board for nail sanding.

Camera will not come on. I bought new battery for it and still nothing

As long as the battery is fully charged, if it doesn't work, the only solution is to return it to the maker for repair.

With items like this, the battery depletes over time itself even if it isn't used. I have some very good rechargeable batteries that will deplete in my camera if left for 3 months.

You will have to contact Nikon about any warranty claims. The standard warranty seems to be 1 year.
I have found that there is a firmware update for this camera that allows for support for Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (the original firmware only supported alkaline or lithium batteries). Try that firmware update to see if it resolves your issue.

I have the same problem with my Coolpix L100. On 27 December 2010 after taking a few shots with flash, using rechargable batteries for one year, it displayed in Hungarian that the batteries are depleted, but after I have recharged them, the camera did not start again anymore, displaying in continue that the batteries are depleted, and it turn off itself after a few seconds. I think that the problem is with the sensor of the camera that should measure the battery status, because even if I had new batteries it desplayed an icon with half battery but I never let it depleted totally so far. Now I am wondering if NIKON will offer free service for it as I have bought it just about 16 months ago in the Romanian DOMO market chain.

Battery won't take (or hold?) charge

More than likely it is the battery. If it is not the battery, it is the charger. Defects are common.

If it is under warranty, exercise it. If not, just purchase a new battery and charger just to be safe.

Batteries are Depleted

A camera rep told me that use about 2500mi (?) batteries instead of the 900 I was using otherwise the batteries will be depleted with just one picture. Digital cameras or any other digital piece of equipment needs the extra power. Make sure that your charger will charge the 2500 power ones fully.
