Hello. Remove the battery and clean the battery contact spots with the eraser end of a common pencil. Also clean the ends of the batteries. Then reinstall batteries and test it. Regards, Joe

Why is my nikon coolpix L20 battery exhausted even with new batteries


If you are using rechargeable batteries, It could be that your camera's battery charger circuit is defective. If your camera is out of warranty, the cheap solution would be to buy an external charger. Another possibility is that a short circuit or defective electronic component is drawing excessive current and draining your batteries. If that is the case, you will need to have your camera repaired. Nikon USA Repair Depot's number is 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. They will tell you how to return your camera for repair and they will give you a free estimate if it is out of warranty.

Tip

Nikon Coolpix keep resetting Time and Date and menu settings.


Hi.

I am listing this tip for the Nikon Coolpix 995, but the tip is valid for all Nikon Coolpix models.

The Nikon cool pix settings are saved into an internal memory.

The internal memory is maintained by an internal rechargeable battery, that is recharged from the main Li-Ion battery.

If you leave your Nikon overnight with no main battery, or if the Li-Ion batteries have drained, then the internal battery will also drain , resetting the clock and other settings, saved on the internal memory. The camera may even drain in about 6 hours depending on the camera, normally it takes at least 12 hrs to drain the clock battery.

If the internal battery is resetting immediately, after you set the clock, or just after few minutes, then the clock battery must be replaced.

The camera must be disassembled completely to replace the battery located on one of the two main internal boards.



Nikon says that the clock battery loosing charge is normal. I quote what they say on the publication titled " The Nikon Guide to digital photography with Coolpix"

"Backup battery of the clock
The clock-calendar is powered by a separate rechargeable battery, which is charged as necessary when the main battery is installed. If the camera has been stored with the main battery removed for a long period of time, the clock may need to be reset. Once the main battery has been reinserted, the clock battery will recharge in several hours, during which time the main battery should be left in the camera."
Original file: Download here


If the clock does not work at all, and is resetting immediately, even though the Li-Ion batteries are fully charged, then the best thing to do is calling Nikon, at the number listed on the owners manual, telling them that you did not do any improper use of the camera, and trying to get the fault repaired as factory defect. That is not always possible, and the decision depends on Nikon customer service.

My camera Nikon coolpix L21 . shows battory exhausted please give me solution.


Hello,

Are you using rechargeable batteries? Even rechargeable batteries have a life span. If you get "Battery Exhausted" error, it means it is time to change the batteries for a new one.

I hope this helped you.

Thanks!

Purchased my nikon coolpix s4100 3 weeks ago and it says battery exhausted. what should i do?


We own a Nikon Coolpix camera as well, which uses regular AA or rechargeable AA batteries.
Assuming you have tried new batteries, (if you haven't, try new alkaline batteries), it's probably time to get a warranty replacement.

You might want to also look at the battery connections inside the camera to make sure they are clean and making good contact with the batteries.

Good luck

I keep getting the message "battery exhausted" on my Nikon Coolpix L22 camera even when I've replaced with new alkaline batteries. They are not rechargeable batteries though. I've tried...


Try rechargeables anyway just in case.Sometimes with age these cameras don't work well with alkalines. If that still doesn't work then I would suggest contacting your local Nikon authorized service center.

Battery exhausted, change them, take one photo, and camera says battery exhausted again. I have this camera one year and this is the first time this has happened.


Good quality rechargeable batteries are a must for these cameras. What I would suggest is AA' NI-MH rechargeable batteries the type that come already charged and when used and recharged will hold their charge up to 80% for a year. These batteries you will find will outlast any AA Alkaline type. If you are using a no name department store AA Alkaline type battery it's a wonder it even turned on.
