Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera ?

Blurry Photos & Batteries Exhausted

\015 I have a Nikon L12. I have 2 problems with this at the moment and I dont know how to solve. The camera says "Batteries Exhausted" when I put brand new batteries in. I have tried rechargable batteries and even bought new batteries as it said the previous ones where exhausted.The pictures it takes are also very blurry. Generally at night but this also happens during the day. Please can you help!!\015

Answers :

I may be able to help with the battery problem. Two suggestions:\015\0121) With a WHITE eraser (preferably at the end of a pencil) rub the metal tabs in the camera that makes contact with the batteries. They may be slightly corroded. DON'T use a pink eraser. A fine sandpaper will also work, but is more difficult to work with inside a small space.\015\0122) The metal tabs may be pushed in too far. You may need to pry them out with a small flat-head screw driver or needle nose pliers. Do so gently.\015\012

ITS NOT THE BATTERIES -- check out the internet (google "nikon coolpix battery exhausted" and you'll see hundreds of people are experiencing this glitch. best fix i've found so far: remove batteries and memory card, then replace batteries and try again. Maybe firmware update works too, but this fix is not confirmed.

Sony DSC-S700 when turned on sometimes the screen is blurry and pink toned with blurry grey lines running accross the screen. Photos turn out the same. Happens intermittently.

Lost Pictures I took a few pictures one night. Two days later I viewed these photos and they were on the camera. The battery was exhausted.
