Blurry Photos & Batteries Exhausted

I have a Nikon L12. I have 2 problems with this at the moment and I dont know how to solve.
The camera says "Batteries Exhausted" when I put brand new batteries in. I have tried rechargable batteries and even bought new batteries as it said the previous ones where exhausted.

The pictures it takes are also very blurry. Generally at night but this also happens during the day. Please can you help!!

I may be able to help with the battery problem. Two suggestions: 1) With a WHITE eraser (preferably at the end of a pencil) rub the metal tabs in the camera that makes contact with the batteries. They may be slightly corroded. DON'T use a pink eraser. A fine sandpaper will also work, but is more difficult to work with inside a small space. 2) The metal tabs may be pushed in too far. You may need to pry them out with a small flat-head screw driver or needle nose pliers. Do so gently.

ITS NOT THE BATTERIES -- check out the internet (google "nikon coolpix battery exhausted" and you'll see hundreds of people are experiencing this glitch. best fix i've found so far: remove batteries and memory card, then replace batteries and try again. Maybe firmware update works too, but this fix is not confirmed.

Nikon L110 battery getting discharge in few clicks


It could be a bad battery charger circuit in your camera. Try charging your batteries in an external charger. Adorama.com sells an Delcon Devices external battery charger for $9.95. If that works, your problem is solved. If not, you will need to send the camera to Nikon USA for repair.

Konica Minolta keeps taking blurry photos? i dont know what i have pressed?


I'm curious, did you know:

Please be informed upon the termination of the Agreement between Sony Corporation and Konica Minolta Photo Imaging, Inc.. Konica Minolta will cease the entire customer services for Konica Minolta cameras and related products, as of 31 December, 2010.
After 1 January, 2011, the Repair Service Providers will continue support for the repair service independently.

here is a link to this: http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/repair/index.html


On another note, and to try to help gain a solution to your problem...

My camera (the Nikon Coolpix L110) uses special batteries made by Nikon and they are very adamant on not using other battery brands... in fact, using other brands may negate their warranty. Is it possible yours also requires a special battery?

I ask because I'm having the same problems with my camera and just learned of the special Coolpix batteries. I guess I should have read the instructions more thoroughly,.. but I don't recall seeing this before tonight while I was looking for a solution to my own problem; blurry pictures as well.


I'm going to try the Coolpix batteries to see if this helps. Perhaps you might do the same if you find yours also uses a special battery. Good luck!

Nikon L100 shows battery exhausted error message after installing new batteries. Unable to perform any operations on camera


That's the bug in Nokin L100, update the firmware version from 1.0 to 1.1, this will solve the battery exhaust problem. Firmware version 1.0 has only 2 battery (Alkaline and Lethium) option where as Firmware version 1.1 has Nickle battery also. But, to update the firmware you need to have EH-67 AC Adapter to give power to the camera.

Battery Problem


These cameras have a internal battery that holds data for the camera to keep its settings. These batteries can be replaced but the camera has to be disassimboled to change it they should be able to be changed at a local camera shop pretty cheap.

Blurry pictures


Check to see what the setting is for Image Size (I have sony cybershot DSC-w50). On the camera itself, it is the button on the bottom. My camera was on the 8"x10" size and I was getting blurry shots (especially with people in them). I switched it to the 4x6 print size and it seems to be much clearer.

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.
