Remove battery for a minute and insert it again.

There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Two options under Battery Type:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery

My problem with the camera is it eats batteries like crazy. I put new duracel batteries on Friday and didn't use the camera that day and took 11 pictures saturday and the batteries were dead. I have have ...


on the side of some of the battery manufacture they print a date. Make sure that even though you purchased new batteries that they are in deed new to that date. Some stay in stock or on shelves for long times. If you have a battery tester and can test the battery is good, then you know your camera has a drain. Check the manufacture of the cameras web site for firmware updates or recalls, either of which are important. A last note, dont leave batteries in this unit as if it is using power it can overheat in a bag and possibly start fire. Duracel also has an 800 number where you can call and send in the batteries and the camera and they will help replace or fix the camera if this is the case.

Camera Wont turn on


It really could be the batteries. You may want to buy a very good pair of high power Duracell or Energisers first just to make sure that the problem is not with the camera.

I bought my mother this HDC-1061E camera and it was fine for not very long until it seemed the batteries that came in the camera box ran out. A short time. And I offerred a new pair of batteries I found lying around, they were cheap batteries I would use for something not requiring much power. And they brought the camera on but it went off within a second or two each time.

Though then I recalled an 8.2 mexapixel camera I bought for myself last year made by Kodak, and I found that some cheap batteries would not even turn that camera on. And expensive duracells didn't actually last long at all.

What's the solution? Buy a couple of 4 packs of NiMh (2700, no less) batteries (UniRoss is a good buy for this, around £9.99 a 4 pack in Amazon), and a recharger separately. If you're thinking about the environment you should think about a solar recharger though that will recharge a good amount slower than recharging from the mains (there are some more expensive units, if you look around, that offer solar and mains recharging).

I suggest two 4 packs so you have the batteries you are using, another set to exchange for a long day out (maybe not so long in fact, these cameras eat batteries so quickly), a further pair of emergency batteries, and then a pair kept always at hand at home if you need to load fresh batteries at any time. Recharge as soon as used.
A cheapish mains recharger won't cost more or much more than £13 to £20 and may esaily be a few pounds less. Solar rechargers are available in this bracket too, usually a little more expensive than mains ones. If you buy the battery I have specified this should work fine.

Camera shows "exhausted batteries" with new ones.


i have this camera and i had the same problem
everytime i put in new batteries like 5 seconds later the battery was exhusted i tried cheap and expensive batteries but nothing seemed to work
i would recomend rechargealbe batteries because they last longer but if you prefer one-time use batteries you should change they battery type in the menu/ setup
hope this helps!! good luck

Nikon coolpix 2100 camera won't stay on


I've been having problems with the batteries and the camera refusing to start even with fresh batteries. I bought loads of new rechargable batteries and have finally found some that work. Duracell rechargables. Theyr'e brilliant and keep their charge for ages despite continuous use of the camera! Last summer I managed to take 975 photos before the batteries finally decided to give up!

What battery to put in the camera


You have a couple options. First you can buy lithium batteries, which are a little pricey, but they last a great deal longer in high tech devices such as digital cameras.

Second, you can buy rechargable batteries, which also last alot longer in cameras, and are worth the price because they can be reused!

Good luck!

You tell me that you tried new batteries. Have you tried a set of NiMH batteries? They are the best for digital cameras. Please try a set, preferably ones rated 2200 or higher. If this doesn't help, the lens could be jammed. Hang onto the batteries though, because they are rechargeable and can be used in anything that takes AA batteries.

Rechargeable batteries NiMH don't last long


i used to have the same problem with my Sanyo 2100mAh. i switched to the Uniross 2300mAh and problem solved. that was using my Ridata 512MB 40X solid state CF. switched to Hitachi 4GB MD (from Muvo2) and now the problem is back. i have learned to live with that though, as it causes no other problem for me except for the faulty battery indication.

Drained Batteries


I use professional $70k cameras for work and it's the same type of thing. If you're not using it, take the batteries out. With my A75 I have some energizer 2200mpa rechargeable AA's and the seem to last about a month or so. If I happen to be "cranking" through pictures though (upwards of 300-500) in one sitting, it will suck them dry. The rechargeable batteries last longer than the Alkalines. I was heistant with the rechargeables but for $20 I picked up a 15 minute charger and the 2200mpa AA's, now I recommend them to everyone with a digital camera. Digital cameras eat Alkaline batteries in a hurry.
