It has nothing to do with your camera. At least not when your camera is not becoming hot. Some batteries can work for thousands of hours, and exceed the 1000 recharge cycles most battery firms are talking of. But the don't give any guaranty a battery will last that long.
Some camera manufactures give one year of warranty on the camera but only 90 days for the battery. So it could be your batteries are old and worn out already. You can use 2 AA size NiMH rechargeable batteries, to check if the do a better job. They are relative cheap, and should last as long as the original battery pack that came with the camera. Please, even when you are not using the camera, you should charge the batteries at least every 2 or 3 months. Then they stay in a better shape. Never use NiCD rechargeable or manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries.
Even the very expensive alkaline batteries won't last half the time a NiMH could work. GP batteries, makes ReCyko+ rechargeable batteries, that not exact do have the capacity of the NiMH batteries, but they can hold the charge much longer. You only have to charge them once a year, when you did not use them. and still after a year they should have enough power to make a bunch of pictures.

Coolpix L26 shows "Battery Exhausted" with new batteries


There is an internal battery like a watch battery. That is the one that is dead.

After charging my dead battery it will only run for a second or two then dies.


Perhaps the batter is "dead" dead and has met the end of it's functional life. You see, lead batteries like car batteries convert lead ions in solution into a solid as energy by chemical reaction. Charging the batter reverses the process, but the process becomes less and less reverseable as the age of the batter increases. When the process can no longer be efficiently reversed by "charging", the battery remains in it's dead, or semi-dead state, where it might run for only a few seconds.

Also, your alternator might be shot because technically, if you can start your engine, the alternator should provide the power to remain on; the battery serves only the purpose of starting the car and receiving the charge from the alternator to power the rest of the car's electronics.

Test both the battery and alternator, no more than $100-$150 to fix either problem.

Hope that helps!

Hello, i am electronically challenged. when i press the power button on my camera it comes on for like a second then this little red light flashes a couple times and it shuts off. what is wrong with it?...


The battery is going dead.
Like many digital cameras, this one gobbles up batteries.
Always have a few extras ready to insert.
In an emergency, you can drop your almost-dead batteries in fairly hot water, dry them off thoroughly, and get a couple of bonus shots out of them.

I put in a freshly charged battery and go shoot a youth football game. After a series of shots, my battery is "dead". I turn the camera off and then back on and can get a few more shots before it goes dead...


How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? It also wouldn't hurt to visit the support section of the Nikon website to see if they've posted any firmware updates.

D70 put full charged battery in, within a few seconds goes dead


Nancy,

How old is this battery? They do indeed wear out. The best way to tell is to put ii in the charger. If it charges up way too quickly, then the battery is shot.
