2 areas to check; 1) are they "good" batteries? High quality, name brand, fresh (as per use before date on package)? 2) do you have the camera set up to use that type of batteries? In the setup menu, there is a power source set-up function. Make sure that matches the battery type you are attempting to use. The best batteries for any AA powered camera are the Energizer Lithium (not rechargeable) cells. A bit expensive, but they pay for themselves through long life, and less headaches.

Why does my camera keep saying battery exhausted even when I change the batteries?


If batteries leaked in the camera the connections IN the camera may be dirty. Putting in a new battery takes care of the battery connection but not the camera connections. This is why it is very important to take out batteries when you are done taking photos. When you want to shoot again you put the batteries back in and set the time and date. You MAY be able to clean the connections with a pencil eraser. If you use a pencil eraser please blow out the dust from the eraser. If you are positive the camera then I cannot help you here.

Camera says "Battery exhausted" after several changes to new batteries.


If you somehow can get in the menu, you can select your battery type. Maybe you've put in rechargeble batteries when the battery type was set to Alkaline? The result is that the camera measures the battery level in the wrong way, so the camera thinks the batteries are empty while they are charged.

Blurry Photos & Batteries Exhausted


I may be able to help with the battery problem. Two suggestions: 1) With a WHITE eraser (preferably at the end of a pencil) rub the metal tabs in the camera that makes contact with the batteries. They may be slightly corroded. DON'T use a pink eraser. A fine sandpaper will also work, but is more difficult to work with inside a small space. 2) The metal tabs may be pushed in too far. You may need to pry them out with a small flat-head screw driver or needle nose pliers. Do so gently.

BATTERY EXHAUSTED


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.

Camera showing battery exhausted with new batteries


There are three battery type settings in the set up menu: Alkaline, COOLPiX(NiMH) and Lithium. Might be worth looking at. To be continued.
