Camera not recognizing fully charged battery

My battery is fully charged. But when I try to turn on my camera - it turns on briefly and then shuts off with a message that says to change the battery pack. I haven't even had this camera for a year - but love it so far (other than this). what's wrong!?!

My Nikon D3100 will not turn on. Is there something wrong with the batteries/memory card? Or rather the camera body itself?


It could be either the battery or the camera.

If you have a second battery, try it. If it works with the second battery then the first battery is bad.

If you don't have a second battery, take your camera and battery to a good photo store. They should have a second battery to try. You might be able to test your battery with one of theirs. This will tell you whether the battery or the camera is bad.

Why doesn't it recognize the correct battery?


hi,
If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.

When I go to turn on my camera it makes several beeps and shuts off. I bought a new battery and that didnt seem to fix the issue. I can hit the menu button and it briefly turns to the M/DD/YY screen and...


Make sure that the battery is fully charged and hols a good charge on it . This is very important as the fault relates to a poor charge or poor battery charge retaining. If you have confirmed that the battery does have a good charge present , the check the terminals for any crusting/erosion . If so use a good cleaner to wipe off the crusts and polish the terminals.
Now set the battery and try to put the camera to a manual mode- disabling the flash. If the camera works then the flash unit can be short and is draining the battery. If not the camera has some regulator in the circuit it can be short.

My camera will not turn on, it is fully charged. When I turn it on it goes to the main Kodak screen and then just shuts off. I have tried cleaning the battery, but nothing has worked.


There is a systems control board failure or the systems control has detected a problem in the camera. I know you have fully charged your batteries, but try regular batteries just to be sure, because as the rechargeable batteries degrade the systems controller will shut the camera down.

My battery is fully charged but when i turn the camera on it shuts right back off


SOunds like your battery is bad. try discharing it :
  1. Place the battery in your camera until it itself turns off. In this situation, the battery is fully discharged.
  2. Take out your battery and slide it into your battery charger.
  3. Connect your charger with power to fully charge the battery. It is normal for a new battery that battery indicator shows 100% capacity in 10 to 15 minutes. Please keep charging until there is no time left for charging.
  4. Fully charged and fully discharged or "cycled" as much as five times to condition them into performing at full capacity.
Try it and see if it works? If the batteries are not rechargeable then the problem is in the cameras power supply and you need to take it in or replace it.

My canon is not powering on. I have the battery fully charged but nothing will turn on.


I had this problem with a Sony Digital Camera once. The memory card was full and it would not power on. I replaced the camera and was preparing to throw it away and tried turning it on one last time and only then did it briefly display a memory full error then quickly shut itself off.

I erased the memory and afterwards the camera worked fine.

So, check and make sure your memory card isn't full. If it is unload the contents onto your computer, erase it and try again.

No power Fuji F10


The symptom of light staying on briefly then going off suggest the battery is dead. If you bought a new battery did you put it in correctly? turn it around and try again.
