SOURCE: Kodak Z1085 IS - drains battery even when camera is not on

the camera takes 1.5v to operate it
anything less the camera will shut down
recharge batteries are only 1.4v so at full
recharge it won't last long
The best batteries are litheum that have the right
volts and capacity to keep the camera going.
try turning or the camera stablizer setting...
might save your battery power.

SOURCE: Battery EXTREMELY Exhausted

As the other person says Nimh rechargable batteries are the best....Also somewhere in the menu system you will find that you need to define which type of battery you are using, this may be the cause...Nikon UK have an excellent after care team if all else fails.

SOURCE: 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.

My coolpix S8200 power button does not light up, won't turn on and won't light up when I charge it. It worked one minute and not the next. The battery tests good and even with a new ba


Hi Carol,
This sounds like a problem with either the power button or the camera's electronic circuitry. I would contact Nikon Support at 1-800-645-6687 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and they will be able to help you get it repaired at one of their factory service centers.

Nikon Coolpix 3200 won't turn on even when connected to computer via the usb cable


Disconnect the camera from the computer and put in a new set of batteries. Connecting the camera to a computer simply drains the batteries faster.

Nikon coolpix L4 won't take pictures & turns off


I have the same camera & personally, I hate it. My camera does that all the time, sometimes, it takes a while for the picture to actually take. Try holding down the button for a while, that's what I have to do with mine. The camera sucks up all the battery energy with only a few picture takes which I really don't understand. I think that's also why it's cutting off while you're using it. Does the phrase, "Warning: Batteries exhausted" sound familar, especially right before the camera shuts off? Oh, & before I go, my personal advice to you is: Get a new camera. I don't even know why I bought mine, soon I'm getting a new one. Yay. I hope this helped you, sorry about the camera problems. Much luck! :D

Drains batteries


I have the same problem with mine..seems to be a common problem. I called Nikon and they said to send the camera in and they would take a look and let me know the cost of repair. Unfortunately my one year warranty is up, if your's is not I suggest you take care of this ASAP.

My camera won't turn on even though it has new batteries


If the usuals won't help (new NiMH bats, cleaning corrosion from the bat contacts, trying with another good memory card, checking for bent pins in the card compartment, reseting the thing either by a prescribed manner or by taking the batteries out for an hour), then it's time to get it fixed. 6 months after purchase you should have a valid warranty, don't you? Sounds like something either in the picture processing or the lens assembly is shutting down the camera. It's not something you could fix by yourself. Even if you could find a way to fix it or get around it I would try to use the warranty if it's valid, otherwise it could come back or deteriorate. And if you do send the camera to Nikon, and get it back fixed, I suggest that you put it to heavy use straight away, take a picture of EVERYTHING for the next month, just so that if the problem is planning on repeating, that it would happen within the warranty, and not a day after it expires. Good luck
