Nikon Coolpix L10 Digital Camera problem


So today I decided to take some pictures before leaving for my flight tomorrow. I bought a new pack of batteries and everything is fine till I took this one picture, my camera shuts itself off.

There are no warning messages or show of defective batteries. Currently when I turn on my camera, it would turn itself off immediately. I'd take out the batteries and memory stick to troubleshoot my camera. It would work but no longer than a few seconds. When I take a picture, the camera shuts off and you can still see the silhouette of the picture taken on the LCD screen.

I do not know what to do, I hope there's an easy fix to this because I really need to use my camera on my trip for tomorrow and have no time to buy a new one. Thanks in advance.

    I have the same problem and its not the batteries because I went out and bought 4 packs of different brands and it did the same thing.

    i'm getting kinda irritated by all the 'know-it-alls' that keep saying just put in new batteries...i'm having the literally the EXACT same problem you described and believe me...the batteries are NOT the problem. i searched the problem and it seems like a lot of people with this particular camera end up with the same batteries...suddenly you take a picture and all you see is a sillouhette, then the camera automatically shuts itself off with the lens stuck out and no matter what you do there's no hope whatsoever getting the damn thing to turn back on...i'm starting to think that this is just overall a really crappy camera...otherwise if anyone actually DOES find a solution that doesn't suggest new batteries it would really be helpful

    I've tried numerous different brands and vendors, but all AA batteries have the same problem in this camera.

What replaces pictureproject with the coolpix L10 ? will nikon view NX2 work for coolpix L10 ?

Picture Project was replaced by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX2. Both of those programs will work perfectly well with the L10. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Once the pictures are on your computer, you can use View NX2 to look at them and do some editing.
