I went to the Nikon website and was told it was a 'firmware' issue that had been resolved. However, their solution is to download the firmware onto your SD card and upload it onto your camera, which you CANNOT do because it doesn't read the battery. Sent them an email, if I find a solution I will post it.
I don't think I will buy another Nikon digital camera. I thought they were the best. I think that was in the past.

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.

Nikon cameras say battery exhausted when they need new batteries, just swap out the old ones and it should be good to go.

Battery exhausted


Hi,

You don't mention anything other than battery exhausted but this could be for a few reasons. Obviously the L20 Coolpix uses standard AA batteries so they need to be replaced with fresh new ones when they start to run down.

If you use rechargeable AA batteries then there will be a point that the batteries no longer "hold" a charge and they will also need replacing.

If the batteries are fresh and the camera is running them down very quickly then you will need to get it professionally looked at for repair, I would imagine though that a repair would cost more than the L20 is now worth.

Hope this helps, please rate my help if it does. Thanks

Camera saying batteries exhausted,when new batteries in


You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH recharegables. Zinc batteries just aren't up to the task.

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

Short battery life with Nikon Coolpix L3


The flash uses more battery than anything else. Try turning off the flash, you may be surprised at the results. The number two power hog is the screen, and it's worthless at the beach or in any bright sunlight. That's why I won't buy a camera that doesn't have a view finder. Still, you should get a lot more than 12 shots from a pair of lithiums. I have a pair of lithiums in a Canon Power Shot that have taken hundreds of stills and quite a bit of video (all outdoors, no flash or screen) and are still usable.

I have a coolpix L20 for about 2 months - whenever I put in new batteries it states that the batteries are exhausted - could there be a short and if so, is it worth fixing?


This is a known problem and Nikon were offering a free fix for camereas within a specific serial number range. I can't find the link so suggest you check their website.
