Does the camera use a memory card? you could simply by a card reader and then transfer the pictures from the card to your pc if you dont have a card reader for example in your printer.

The batteries died while I was taking photos. The lens did not retract. I changed the batteries and it would not come on. Changed the batteries again and got a message 'Change batteries'. I hooked it up to...


I don't know if you have a voltage meter, but you do, check the voltage of the batteries, you just tried. I have seen many "new" batteries that aren't good, and had similar problems as a result.

Even so I'd suggest a brand new set of Duracell or Energizer batteries, BUT.....

Why aren't you using NiMh rechargables?????

They have much more power will give you over a year of picture taking even if you shoot hundreds of pictures a day. All you need to do is make sure you charge them about once a week, even if you don't use the camera.

Battery exhausted after only a few pictures


This could be corrosion, or oxidation on the battery terminals inside the computer. You will have to clean them with a qtip and alcohol, or pencil eraser, or whatever you can reach them with. When the terminals get slightly corroded, they draw more current from the battery, shortening it's life, even if they're new. Try to clean the terminals as well as you can, and hopefully it will help. Otherwise, the unit will require service. Make sure you get an estimate before having it fixed, though, since the cost of repair can easily exceed the cost of a new camera on sale. Good luck, hope this helps.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries


you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

I get a warning which says *Battery Exhausted*. I've replaced them but still get the warning.. Any idea whats wrong?


earlier i posted solution in similary problem. maybe help you this.

solution is good batteries, Ni-Mh or Lithium, rechargeable only not alkaline. but...problem is how long you watch pictures on lcd display or how much is flash in use. if always by shooting pics used flash that means that you can with best batteries 30, 20 or less pics shooted. and of course, if you connect camera with pc, how long is cam on? just transfer pics on pc and turn the camera off. the best solution is use the card reader for pics transfering.
if is flash off, it's possible to shot 120-150 pics with Ni-Mh. with lithium i don't know, maybe 500 pics. don't use camera lcd for analysing pics it's just there for short preview.
with alkaline batt., very low quality, i shot 30 pics without flash.

i shot also very good pics at night without flash. nikon coolpix L15 can do that but you must have more praxis. alkaline batteries shooting!
after 3 pictures on display is message: warning! the battery is exhausted. what you can do? turn the camera off. wait about 10 minutes. turn the camera on, you can shot 3 or 5 pictures and than turn your camera off again.
you can repeat this few times and you be lucky if you 30 pics captured:)
REMEMBER: all this goes without camera flash!!!
flash and every zooming use more battery power! and that was all magic:).

BATTERY EXHAUSTED


Make sure you have the internal menu for the battery selection correct.
Choosing the wrong battery may cause this.

Rechargeable batteries and alkaline batteries are not the same.

This may also be a condition and problem caused by the camera itself, and may need repair.
