Question about Nikon COOLPIX Cameras
I have changed the batteries numerous times even putting in new Duracell batteries and yet it still keeps saying battery exhausted. It is a fairly new camera ( I've purchased it brand new from Staples and have had it for less than one year).
If batteries leaked in the camera the connections IN the camera may be dirty. Putting in a new battery takes care of the battery connection but not the camera connections. This is why it is very important to take out batteries when you are done taking photos. When you want to shoot again you put the batteries back in and set the time and date. You MAY be able to clean the connections with a pencil eraser. If you use a pencil eraser please blow out the dust from the eraser. If you are positive the camera then I cannot help you here.

SOURCE: camera batteries drain quickly
Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.

I know you mentioned rechargeable batteries, but you did not say was what kind. I have had my -600 now for more than two years and suddenly I started to experience flash failures, and the ready light would not come on to indicate flash is ready. I called Nikon 24/7 tech support and they recommended NiMH rechargeable batteries. (I was using regular alkaylines). Instantly my problems were solved, flash after flash it recycled instantly. In the manual they list the recycle times and the NiMH are the fastest. The tech said they were very good on power.I was skeptical, but he was right, it turnes out.
So, if you are not using NiMH for rechargeables, that could well be your problem. NiCads won't cut it!

Check for the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. If you see them rusted, clean them gently with alcohol. Do not scrape with any sharp objects. Make sure the contacts are clean and reinsert the batteries. Get back if it is still dead.

Testimonial: "This was a logical next step that I had already done... I should have stated in my original problem. Maybe it is the on/off button."
