21st June I bought a Nikon Coolpix A10 camera which worked

Customer Question

21st June I bought a Nikon Coolpix A10 camera which worked fine until two weeks ago. Now it keeps saying battery exhausted. I changed the batteries and it worked for maybe a day and it said battery exhausted so I changed the battery again and now today it will if I am lucky it will take a picture then say battery exhausted again. The last time I tried it wouldn't take a picture at all it would just turn off. it's not the batteries, I have used good quality brand new batteries each time. I am in on holidays at the moment and desperately need the camera to work. Glenda
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Well I bought it on the 21.6.2017 so as far as I am concerned it is new and it is a Nikon Coolpix A10 serial no. 25012749
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Started about two weeks ago but has become worse the last few days. I have tried changing the batteries as I said but it dosen't help.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I looked it up on the internet and seems many people are experiencing the same problem so their must be an answer to the problem

Hi Glenda, are the batteries specifically for cameras? What is the mAh rating on the batteries?
