Hello blb... sometimes this problem is caused by corrosion. Remove the batteries and then use the eraser end of a new pencil to clean the battery contacts within the camera battery compartment. Once you have scrubbed them all clean, use a vacuum cleaner to remove any debris before you reinsert the batteries. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Hi,

Unfortunately what you have described indicates that there is a problem with the main circuit board it is not getting the power supply properly may be the battery contacts are defective please check them and bent the battery lever up a bit for contact but do it if you are confident as some little force can break them and please follow the steps below..................


1. Remove the battery and memory card from the camera.
2. Let the camera sit with the battery and memory card removed
for approximately 20 minutes.

3. Clean your battery contacts with a clean cloth.

4. Reinstall the battery and power on the camera. If your camera still
doesn't turn on, unfortunately, your camera will require service to
correct the problem. I apologize for this inconvenience.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.


Hope i helped you.


Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I'm one of many who have had problems with the battery exhausted signal one gets with Nikon cameras, even sometimes with freshly charged batteries.


Yes. It sure could have caused the problem. You didn't say which Nikon camera you have, so consider this a general answer. NMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries are rechargeable and alkaline batteries are not. When your camera is set for rechargeable, the recharging circuit is activated when your camera is plugged into the wall outlet. When the camera is set to alkaline, the charging circuit is disabled. Therefore, if you had the camera set to alkaline and you used rechargeable batteries, you batteries were never getting charged. Since your NMH batteries were in a discharged state, your camera gave you correct information.

Change the batteries message keeps appearing even with fresh batteries. The camera turns on then immediately turns off What's up?


This actually a really common problem among Canon point and shoot cameras. There are a couple of methods that have worked well for others.

1. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries. Then take a regular wooden pencil and place the eraser end down onto the battery contacts. Rotate the pencil to remove any corrosion. Sometimes a lack of proper battery contact will result in the low battery indicator.

2. Take a toothpick and wedge the tip under the battery contact and break it off. This will put more pressure between battery and contacts.

You can also try installing 3rd party firmware at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_in_Brief
This is a bit technical and will probably void your warranty, but might be worth the try.

Nikon 7600 Battery Exhausted


There is a menu item on the camera to select what kind of battery (Li-Ion, NMh, or Alkaline) is being used. I strongly recommend the use of a rechargeable cr-v3 battery in this camera. There is also a reset function for the battery indicator.

Put in fresh batteries and camera telling me WARNING!! BATTERY EXHAUSTED


Either the fresh batteries are bad (this can happen), or they were inserted improperly, or the camera is defective somewhere. Measure the voltage on the batteries with a multimeter (voltmeter). Alkaline (regular) AA batteries measure about 1.6v to about 1.5v when new. NiMH (rechargeable) measure about 1.24v when fully charged. Be sure to install them with the + terminal and the - treminal going in the right direction. There should be some indication of this in the battery compartment of the camera. Hope this helps.

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.

Battery exhausted warning


Hello justplainles:

Do the others show the same problem?

Try this: RESET ALL in the menu or setup menu.
If that does not work, make sure that the in the menu (if it is there) you set the battery type to rechargeable not alkaline .
You may try alkaline batteries, if it does the same, the camera may need repair.

Some cameras will not set the battery type automatically.
