In this camera and most of fuji AA batteries, the batteries keeps draining even with the machine off .
if the camera is not on use REMOVE the battries.
i will recommend regular recghargable batteries with at least 2700 Mah type NiMH.
you can recharge them several times and they will last almost as those lithium batteries on that model. plus they will be cheaper

Will not turn on even if you charge it


How old is it? Be aware that it will not turn on with a dead battery, and lithium batteries lose 20% of capacity every year (under the best of circumstances, so it can go dead faster). After 4-5 years, the battery is useless.

The unit itself could also be dead. Keep in mind they are used under horrendous conditions (i.e. ''Summer Heat'').

You may use regular alkaline batteries, though they won't last as long as lithiums. You should be able to buy the batteries at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Your local supermarket will also probably have alkalines, though they tend to charge more for such stuff than a department store.

I have had my D3100 for about 2 years and love it. In the past 2 weeks it won't power up. I thought the battery had gone bad so I bought another. It powered up and I took a few pics but then 2 minutes...


are you using Lithium batteries?

cameras are WEIRD!!!! I have watched brand new, regular size personal camera eat regular batteries in just a couple pictures, then work fine with lithium batteries. Also..cheap batteries are just getting cheaper, so as it may of worked fine 2 years ago, could just be not so good batteries. If your not using lithium batteries, id try that first, will run you 10 bucks for 4 AA's, but thats better than the flat rate fee a shop would charge you to look at it first.

an image..just in case

The power will not come on after I replaced the AA batteries. Is there another battery in this cameria?


i had the same problem i found by a professional ,because i thought my camera was broken, that you have to use lithium batteries theyre a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries but do last much longer and are worth it after that the camera works fine.

You cant use regular batteries on these cameras. I have the same one., you need to buy rechargeable batteries or lithium batteries, both are stronger,but more costly than your regular alkaline batteries. This will defrinatly fix the problem..I am 100% positive,.They sell recharg- able batteries ar walmart for like $20.00 taht comes with 4 aa batteries and the pulg in charger.
