Go into the camera's setup menu and find the battery type option.

Menu > Setup > Battery type

Change it to the type of battery you are using. The camera adjusts it's power usage depending on what batteries it is told are in it.

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 Canon 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).

Hi,the battery may have a dead one.,since you have a valid warranty pls ask for a replacement..
It is normal for the batteries since they have been fully tested under load..
sometimes it happens even with a famous camera maker as NIKON but remember batteries manufactured by another source,they just put a brand name whoever asks.
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

Nikon coolpix 4000 not charging its shows battery exhousted


Do you have store your Nikon CoolPix 4000 battery for a long time as the battery power exhausted? If so, it maybe have cause great damage to the Li-ion Nikon camera battery, you'd better store a Li-ion camera battery about 40% power and at a place about 25 degrees Celsius

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 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.

Battery Problem


I just had this problem today myself, and looked everywhere online for a solution. I changed the batteries (to Panasonic), and it didn't help. But i tried different batteries (Energizers) and the camera started working again.
