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: camera wont turn on even with new batteries.

I have the same problem as well. I have had my camera for a bout 2 years. The first time this happened was in March 2007. We had been using regular AA batteries, then we decided to go lithium and bamm! The camera started working. I was elited. Then in the beginning of December 2007, it let me take one last picture and then it wouldn't come on again. The lithiums wouldn't even work. We recently took it to a camera shop and they suggested the same as the other posts. I think it would be cheaper just to buy another camera and I think there should be a recall on this camera, if there are so many other customers having the same issue. I really did enjoy it while it lasted, though.

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.

SOURCE: I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries

you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

PCR-T2300 why do i keep getting change battery message even though new batteries are good and installed correctly?


Are they the correct kind, some devices are fussy about their batteries. Check the type is as specified. Remember years ago I put 4 new and fully charged ni-cads into a flash gun and it would not work because the typical charge of those was 1.3v instesd of 1.5.

What is "the firmware has detected that a CMOS checksum error occurred.Press the Enter key to continue. The firmware has detected that the system date/time has not been set." What is this error.


I assume that you entered the BIOS after replacing the battery and set the date and time? If you cannot get to the BIOS after receiving this message, it usually means that the BIOS has become corrupted, either by failure or by virus. You may be able to reflash it if you can download a bios update from the manufacturer.

I'm really not sure about this. But you could try cleaning your camera's battery connection with a (dry) earbud.

Even after putting new batteries it gives message"change the batteries"


Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new, may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

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.
