Customer Question

My Nikon Coolpix L100 camera keeps showing Battery Exhausted even when I have put in brand new batteries and not even take a shot. What is wrong or what can I do?

Hi Margaret,This can happen if the batteries are not making good contact with the terminals inside the camera.Try cleaning the terminals by rubbing them with an eraser to remove any corrosion or contamination.Also ensure you are using high powered digital camera batteries.If that does not work, then there may be a fault with the camera's charge detection circuitry.
