Question about Nikon Coolpix L310
My l310 turns itself off quite often when pressing the button to take a picture. could this be an external problem? such as hi humidity?
As soon as the camera senses the battery does not have enough power, to save a picture you take, it will shut itself down, preventing a memory error. Because if the voltage is to low, no reliable access to the memory is possible. Be aware that in extreme warm or extreme cold the battery can't produce enough power.
Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work.Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.
Always charge the batteries together, so they have the same charge.
Never use different kind of batteries together. The best is a set not only of the same brand and capacity, but also form the same batch.
Only one poor cell can spoil al the fun, because the total voltage is quick on a critical limit, shutting the camera down.

The auto shut off should be around 30 seconds to allow the built in memory to store everything and rest.If it keeps repeatedly turning off and then on again in a short space of time it will use alot more power from the batteries just Like a car engine uses more petrol stopping at traffic lights. The other factor, I am repeatedly typing on this site is Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.
