Question about Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon Coolpix L12: Hadn't used the camera for a couple of months; removed the batteries and recharged them (Nimh), and now the camera won't turn on. Put in a couple of new alkalines and still won't turn on. Removed the memory card, and no effect. Has not been dropped or whacked.

Most likely what has happened is that some slight oxidation has occurred on the battery terminals inside your camera. Take some alcohol on a qtip and clean them thoroughly. Let it dry good, and see if that works. If it doesn't, try cleaning the terminals with a pencil eraser, then reclean with alcohol. It's always possible that there is another problem going on, and there's an excellent web blog about this:

If all fails, get an estimate before having it serviced. Often, it's cost effective to just get a new one on sale.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps!

I put new batteries into my nikon camer after I was alerted with the ''battery exhausted'' screen. It now won't turn on.


Make sure you are using rechargable batteries. Normal batteries are not strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much stronger and should give you a good battery life.

How long i can cahrge my battery in nikon l20


Actually, you can't charge the battery in the Nikon L20 at all. The camera uses two AA batteries, either disposable alkaline or lithium, or rechargeable Ni-Cad or NiMH. If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need to use a separate recharger, as the camera does not contain any recharging circuitry.

NIMH Battery goes off after 20 shots for Nikon Coolpix L01


the camera takes just about any AA pair of batteries ... lithium will give you the most pictures .. your NiMH batteries should last longer unless they are old .. you may have one weak battery ... you can try a pair of standard alkalines to see if there is something wrong with the camera .. if those work ok then you need a new set of NiMH ... there is a new type out called "eneloop" .. they are just like normal NiMH except they dont go dead when you store them .. even after a year they are still charged .. with normal NiMH batteries as they age they will self discharge in 2 weeks or so .. so you have to charge them just before you use them ..otherwise they go dead on their own .. if you charge them then not use them for a week then you will not get nearly as many pictures ... the eneloop batteries fix that .. you can also recharge them many more times than standard NiMH batteries .. they cost about the same ..

Camera turns off within seconds batteries are new


Are You Using Regular Or Alkiline?

cameras eat batteries fast. the best cameras have rechargable battery packs.

i'd use energizer or duracell. try to stay away from alkiline rechargables as they wear out fast. try Nickle Medal Hydrate Batteries (NiMH).

I have a Nikon coolpix L18 and can only take around 10 pics wiht it, with alkaline aa batteries, before I get the message "batteries exhausted". What can I do? Is the camer defective?


Well, alkaline batteries don't last long in a power-draining camera like the Coolpix. Try some rechargeables and keep spares fully charged.
