Question about Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
The problem may be with your battery charger rather then the battery itself. I don't know if you are charging your battery in the camera or with a separate charger. In either case I would buy an external charger. If you don't want to spend Nikon money. Adorama.com has several models in the $20 range. Try charging your battery in a new charger. If that does not solve the problem, there may be a short circuit in your camera's electronics that is draining the battery. If that is the case, contact the Nikon USA Service Center (look on the Nikon website) for a repair estimate.

Make sure you have the internal menu for the battery selection correct.
Choosing the wrong battery may cause this.
Rechargeable batteries and alkaline batteries are not the same.
This may also be a condition and problem caused by the camera itself, and may need repair.

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 ..

rechargeable batteries eventually die and fail to hold a charge -that
may be your problem; so
you may have to go to camera store that sells Nikon cameras and ask to
put your charged battery in one of their cameras- if it does the same
thing there as it does with your camera- it's definitely the battery- if
it runs strong for a while, you have some type of problem in your
camera or charger that needs fixing. There may be
a film on them even if they seem shiny. Take a pencil eraser or art
eraser and clean the contacts - almost always fixes the problem.
Keep us updated.
