Question about Nikon Coolpix 7900 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Exhausted Battery My battery will not charge. I will charge it, and it shows that it is being charged, but once I use it it says that the battery is exhausted and it turns itself off. I thought the battery was bad so I bought a new one. Same thing happens. Could it be the charger?

Re: Exhausted Battery

Check corrosion on the battery contacts. Use a pancil eraser to clean them if you can get to them.

My Kodak Pixpro FZ51 camera showed the message Battery Exhausted and then shut off. I am trying to charge it but when I plug it in to charge the light blinks red and it doesnt charge. I have let it do

I'm affrays your battery is gone. You could try to measure the voltage it is still giving with a multi meter, but I think it will be at least 1,7 volts less than what is printed on the battery. This means at least one cell in the battery is dead. I can't believe the contacts are dirty or oxidised, because the camera is too young. But if the contacts are not clean, try cleaning them with a dry cloth. If you should buy a new battery, make it a habit to charge it at least every couple of months, even if you only use it once a year. A battery is better off when charged and discharged now and then, then when you keep ik laying in a drawer.

How come my battery wont charge on my brand new Nikon S 8000? There isn't an indicator light showing the status of a charge...also I had it charging for 24 hr but still battery exhausted message.

We had this same problem...battery indicator light not showing and battery not charging. We found out by accident that if the battery cover is open, it won't charge. So open the battery cover, open the USB cover, shut the battery cover and then plug in the USB as normal. It worked for us, hope it will work for you too.

Camera shows battery exhausted with new batteries.

You should be using Nickel metal Hydride batteries (NiMH). Do not use Nickel Cadmuim(NiCd), Zinc carbon or alkaline.

Battery exhausted warning

Hello justplainles:

Do the others show the same problem?

Try this: RESET ALL in the menu or setup menu.
If that does not work, make sure that the in the menu (if it is there) you set the battery type to rechargeable not alkaline .
You may try alkaline batteries, if it does the same, the camera may need repair.

Some cameras will not set the battery type automatically.

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.

*ist D Grip problem

i have yet to recieve the b-grip for my *ist so i can't tell you if i have the same problem. i do have a thought on the matter and an interest in the fix as i have a grip on order. have either or both of you upgraded to firmware 1.1? that is not listed as something the firmware update remedies. however, i understand that manufacturers often include fixes for less conspicious problems without listing them. if you haven't upgraded it's worth a shot, you have nothing to loose as long as you use FRESH batteries. hope i helped. have fun shooting.
