Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

L26 won't turn on


First, I would check your batteries. Start by removing them and making sure that the battery contacts in the camera and on the batteries are clean. If they are dirty. A new pencil eraser can be rubbed against the contacts to remove any oils or residue. Next, I would make sure your batteries are charged. A quick way is to check is to take them out and put them in another device that takes two AA batteries and see if it works. If the batteries are bad, put two new alkaline (non-rechargeable) batteries in your camera to see if it powers up. If it does and you wish to use those batteries, be sure to go into your menu and set the camera to use alkaline batteries because there voltage output is slightly different from rechargeable batteries . Remember that you cannot recharge those batteries and trying to do so can damage your charger and cause the batteries to explode. If the camera will not power up with new batteries, the camera will need to be sent in to Nikon USA for repair (see the Nikon website for information). If the camera powers up with the substitute batteries, either your rechargeable batteries have gone bad or you camera's battery charger is defective. For problems with the internal charger, it is probably more cost effective to buy an external battery charger then to send the camera in for repair unless your camera is still under warranty. External battery chargers are available for under $20. There is one other possible cause of battery failure. If the camera's internal circuitry has an electrical problem, especially a short circuit, the camera will draw excessive current from the batteries and run them down. If that is the case, you would obviously need to send your camera in for repair.

Why is my camera, coolpix l25 advising "battery exhausted" with brand new batteries, never had this message before?


First, I would check your batteries. Even new ones can be bad; you don't know how long they sat on the shelf. If you have a voltmeter, you can measure the output. If you do not, start by removing the batteries and making sure that the battery contacts in the camera and on the batteries are clean. If they are dirty. A new pencil eraser can be rubbed against the contacts to remove any oils or residue. Next, I would make sure your batteries are charged.

Won't charge

A new pencil eraser can be rubbed against the contacts to remove any oils or residue. Next, I would make sure your batteries are charged. Since you did not state which model Coolpix camera you have, I do not know if your camera uses AA batteries or a battery pack. If it uses AA batteries, a quick way is to check is to take them out and put them in another device that takes two AA batteries and see if it works. If the batteries are bad, put two new alkaline (non-rechargeable) batteries in your camera to see if it powers up.

Remember that you cannot recharge those batteries and trying to do so can damage your charger and cause the batteries to explode. If your camera uses a battery pack, I would buy an external charger from Nikon. They are inexpensive and if it turns out that the charging circuit in you camera is defective, it will save you a repair bill by providing you with an alternative means for charging your batteries. If the camera will not power up with new batteries, the camera will need to be sent in to Nikon USA for repair (see the Nikon website for information).

My Coolpix s6000 just won't charge I bought a new battery and it worked for a short time and now as soon as you take it off the charger it dies. please tell me what I need to do to fix it or how to send it...


It sounds like one of two things. Either there is a short circuit in your camera that is draining the battery or the camera's battery charger circuit is not charging the battery. There are a few things you can do. You can send the camera to Nikon USA for repair (look on the Nikon website for the address the closest repair center). The other thing you could do is buy an inexpensive external charger for the battery and see if the camera works for a resonable period after charging the batteries externally. Adorama.com carries both the Nikon and off brand models and will give you the best price. It that works, you know that the camera's battery charging circuit is the problem. If that is the case, you could pass on repairing the camera and just use the external charger. If that does not solve the problem, the camera will need to be repaired.

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.

Camera Won't Turn On; the 3 lights are Fashing Red


Sorry, didn't see the part about 2 batteries and chargers. I've had the V603, it broke, and I took it apart. It is a very complex little camera and I don't recommend opening it up past taking off the front cover and rear cover.

The CCD is just behind the lens assembly, and the motherboard is behind the aluminum cover for the slot for the SD card. Most components on the motherboard are surface mounted and trouble shooting or soldering is tough! You might try cleaning the battery contacts using a pencil eraser (just go through the battery compartment opening). Even with new batteries, if the battery contacts on the camera have any corrosion, the camera won't be getting full voltage.

If you take the front or rear covers off, you might see if you can see any loose connections by doing that. Other than that, probably a lost cause. Sell your camera on E-bay as one that needs repairs. There are many people who would buy it to use the LCD from it to repair their 603V. If you like this model, I'd look for a cheap replacement on e-bay.

Camera won't turn on.


Mine had the same problem.  I consulted http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/ and it said to use rechargeable batteries only.  The entry claimed that alkaline batteries, even if they're brand new, don't have sufficient power for more than a few pictures and may not even be powerful enough to turn the camera on.  I was dubious, but I tried putting in a pair of fully charged rechargeables and, by Gum, the camera was suddenly working again.  So before junking the camera, try investing 20 bucks in a battery charger and a pair of AA rechargeables and see if that fixes it.
