Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera ?

In spite of new battery and fully charged, it will alert "Battery Exhausted" and then shut down.

Answers :

You need to clean the battery compatrment contacts. This is best accomplished with a cotton swab "dampened" not soaked with rubbing alcohol. Wipe the contacts as best you can and then make sure they are completely dry by blowing on them. Do the same to your battery and charger if so equipt. THank you, Dana

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

My GE A1035, which i've got about seven months ago always displays "battery exhausted" even though the battery was fully charged. I also bought new batteries to test if it was the cause but the problem was not solved. My coworker who also owned another camera borrowed the batteries from but to my surprise both batteries worked in his camera. I hope you could address this problem immediately. Thank you.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless. Despite using the appropriate fully charged batteries, the display constantly indicates low battery. I manage to get out one or two shots and then it shuts down altogether. This is very frustrating as you cannot count on the camera working at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or is there a particular brand of battery that works for this model. Unfortunately,

Hi! I took several shots yesterday and went to upload the pix on my computer today and when I connected the camera to my computer the battery was at 100%. Then the camera completely shut off.

I fully charged that one and plugged my camera in again and the same thing happened! What could this be caused from? No damage has ever

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again. This happens with brand new batteries and with rechargeable batteries that have been fully charged. Any assistance would be appreciated. Doug Clark
