My experience is the same. The battery warning will come on after about 40 shots (with half with flash). If you don't replace it right away, you can take another 40 shots before it goes completely dead.

I find that the Nikon 4300 really burns through the batteries when the camera is set to use red-eye correction. This triggers three or so flashes for each picture. I think I get more than 30 red-eye corrected flash pictures on a set of batteries, but probably no more than 50. Taking outdoor shots w/o flash naturally is kinder on the batteries.

The battery of my nikon coolpix 4300 is not working it is a new battery, but whenever i put it to charge it charges but the camera does not turn on (sorry if the question is confusing)

It sounds like there may be a problem with your Nikon Coolpix 4300 camera that is preventing it from turning on, even when you have a charged battery installed. Here are a few things you could try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Check the battery contacts: Make sure the battery contacts on both the battery and inside the camera are clean and free of debris. If there is any dirt or corrosion on the contacts, use a clean, dry cloth to gently clean them.
  2. Try a different power source: If you're charging the battery using a wall outlet, try using a different outlet or a different charger. If you're charging the battery using a USB cable, try using a different cable or a different USB port.
  3. Reset the camera: Sometimes, resetting the camera to its default settings can help resolve software-related issues. Check your camera's user manual for instructions on how to perform a reset.
  4. Contact Nikon customer support: If none of these steps resolve the issue, it may be a problem with the camera itself. Contact Nikon customer support or take the camera to a professional repair service for further assistance.
I hope this helps!

How to charge battery

The camera comes with the MH-53 battery charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

Nikon d3100 bran new battery wont finish charging !!

You have one of a few problems. Either your new battery is defective, which does occasionally happen, or there is a problem with your battery charger. The other possibility is that your camera has a problem; possibly a short circuit that is draining the battery. If you have a spare battery and it will take a charge, your new battery is probably bad.

Nikon cooplix 4300 worked for 5 years fine now it will turn on take one picture and then when I press the button to take another picture it won't work (the button physical won't go down to take the...

What does the battery icon show? If it shows an almost depleted battery the camera will only let you take one picture, then disable it from taking any more.
It's possible the battery won't hold a charge, so you should consider testing the camera further using an external charger or getting a new battery.

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:).

Will not charge batt

I am sure you ave figured out what to do for this poblem but if not...I had this problem with a nikon I just purchased. The guy I bought it from said it was the battery charger, so I purchased a battery charger on ebay-"new nikon d1 battery charger" was the actual listing and it cost about $40.00. You can get the actuall charger that comes with it on ebay- but it cost alot more money. I recieved the product, tried it on my battery (which was suppose to be new) and it still would not charge. I took all my stuff (battery, new charger, old charger) to a local battery shop in town and they tested it all for me. Come to find out it was not the charger all along, it was the "new" battery- UGHH! The whole point to this story is this- if you have not aken your battery and charger to a battery shop yet- do that first. Then go from there. Like I said- you canget the charger on ebay- and the battery can be bought for about $36.00 too. I would not recommend buying both like I did! Good luck.
