The battery is most probably defect. and then,
The manual says:


Battery is exhausted.
When connecting to an electrical outlet using a Charging AC Adapter, the camera cannot be turned on.

  • Confirm all connections.
  • Off is selected for Charge by computer in the setup menu.
  • When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops when the camera is turned off.
  • When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops if the computer is suspended (sleeping), and the camera may turn off.
  • Depending upon computer specifications, settings, and status, it may be impossible to charge the battery inserted into the camera via computer connection.



So even when you think the battery is charged, it still can be empty. When a rechargeable battery is old, or not often used, it can lose its capacity, not being able to power the equipment it was meant for correctly.
To make sure your battery is good, you could try to check the voltage with a multi meter. The voltage should be slightly higher than the 3,6 Volt that is printed on the battery. like 3,8 Volt, when measured. if it is just a fraction lower than the 3,6 is is not fully charged and it will be much lower when put in a camera, after switching on the camera. When you measure 2,4 Volt, 1,2 Volt or even nothing you can be sure the battery is dead.

Best option then, would be to order a new battery. But if you know someone with a camera that has the same battery that works, ask if you can check your camera still works with a battery that is ok. because when in a rear situation it is you camera that is defective, you can save the mont for a new battery and look out for a new camera, because the batteries are not cheap.

It thinks that the SD card is full - try re-formatting if you have no photos there. The SD functions the same as a PC hard drive, and if the directory 'tracks' are corrupt, anything could happen. Else try a new SD card.

SOURCE: I have a nikon cool pix camera that doesn't turn on

When there is nothing happening, it is hard to understand what is wrong.
Do the menus cone on or anything turn on?
If the camera comes on at all, then try setting all the menus to default.
If nothing comes on, no lights, nothing, then you are stuck.

If it will not turn on at all, I would recommend selling it at a site such as Ebay for repair parts, as is. At least you can get some money back, and buy another camera.

Also you may want to consider to call Nikon and trade-in or trade-up your camera for a re-furbished unit (a re-furbished unit will have everything just as it came from the factory. The support-repair department would be the place to get the number and information.

SOURCE: My camera wont let me look do anything it turns on and thats it.

If you turn off your flash you might get a picture or two more,The flash consumes probably 3/4 of the battery.I have Sony,HP,Fuji,and Cannon cameras,they walk thru batteries like they're free for the taking.

SOURCE: battery life nikon coolpix s3000

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi, Sounds like the battery is toast. Batteries can stop charging any point in their life span. Usually I'd suggest just buying a new battery but because a battery shouldn't die like that within the first year I'd suggest contacting Nikon in your country and seeing what they'll do for you.

It sounds like the battery is end of its life. If you plug the power adapter into the camera, does it power on? If it does then it's the battery. (some cameras might requre you to have the battery in there..so put the battery in, but also plug in the power adapter and see if it powers on)

I just bought a Nikon coolpix 3000 yesterday and I pluged for charging 6:30Am this morning. However the charge light is still blinking now(4:00Pm)Is this something wrong??


Hi,

There is a possibility that the lithium batteries are dead and won't charge up. You can go out and purchase 4 AA rechargeable batteries and put them in the battery pack and see if they will charge up.

If you still get a problem with the camera not charging, take the camera back and have it replaced.

NOTE: rechargeable batteries lose their life after a short while so it is a good idea to carry spares around with you.


Regards.

Recently purchased the Sony DSC-W290 and I have


how long do you usually charged the batt? to make charge last slightly longer leave the batt inside the charger for an hour after the charger light goes off. if you have a fully charged batt you should be able to take approx. 300 pics or 2.5hrs approx.batt life. for viewing pics it should give you approx. 6800 pics and approx. 5.5 hrs. of course, number of still images and and batt life may vary depending on the camera settings.so if you're zooming in and out,using the flash,going from camera to play mode, turning cam on and off, using other settings and features of the camera, this will cause the batt to drain much faster.also ambient temperature also affects batt life.if it's very cold, the batt drains a bit faster.also, it's recommended that if you're not using the camera to remove the batt.retaining the camera settings, date & time will cause batt to drain even if your not using it. if did this and still you think it's odd that your batt drains quickly and looses charge even if it's fully charge, it might also indicate that what you might be a defective batt. one way to find out is to try using the same type of batt from a friend or a relative that has one to confirm and further isolate issue.anyway, supplied accessories has the same warranty that applies to your camera.so you may send it out and have it replaced if needed.hope this helps.thanks:)

Lumix DMC-FZ18 wont power on


Leaving it in the on mode has totally depleted the battery, you say repeated charges fail. Usually leaving it on charge for overnight should revitalise it, if this is not so then the battery should be replaced as attempting to recharge it may cause it to split and spill nasty stuff onto things.

Dont take the risk with batteries in expensive cameras they are cheaper to replace than the camera itself. I remove the batteries from my camera at the end of any session and store them in a tupperware container in my camera gear. That way if they develop a problem it wont affect the camera. It also saves them from running down when the camera switch is left on.

Dropped digital cameras are usually dead digital cameras. No matter how careful you are sand and dust can get inside and raise havoc with the internals.
