Nikon Coolpix L3 thinks batteries are dead

My Nikon Coolpix L3 thinks fresh batteries are dead. Sometimes it will start up, but other times it will not. When it does start up, it just says the batteries are low, and shuts down right away.

It's only about 1 1/2 years old, and it hasn't been dropped or abused.

    My Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera thinks brand new batteries are dead! It is only a year and a half old. It has never been dropped or had anything spilt on it. What should I do?

    Screen blinks white light then says

    Battery Exhausted Mine is brand new.

    I am sending it back to Nikon for repair. will tell later if it gets repaired or no.

I saw another message board that said to go into the setup menu, (Menu>Setup>Reset all) and hit ok on the reset all. I did this and it seems to have solved my Exhausted Battery problem. I was about to buy a new camera or send this one for repair, but now it is finally working again for the first time in over a year. Try it! Good luck.

I think this was a firmware fault on some cameras. Check with Nikon to see if there is a new firmware for your particular camera. This can be downloaded free of charge and uploaded to the camera via USB.

How can i open the battery door of nikon coolpix l3

Most camera battery compartments have "raised lines" on the cover. They usually suggest that you put your finger or thumb on that surface and push with a sliding motion to open the cover. Again, there are many different models, but the Coolpix I have seen have that kind of opening device. Hope this helps!

Dead batteries

Make sure you have the menus set the way you want.
This is important because these settings will control the camera and the flash as well.
