Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries

\015 I bought this camera 4 months ago. It was a replacement for another Coolpix L18 I bought which continually gave me the "Battery Exhausted" message. I have put 3 sets of new batteries in the camera and still get the same message in this new camera. Please help!\015\012\015\012Thank you,\015\012M.R. Shelton\015

Answers :

You have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..
This is not a solution! NOT understanding why people can't understand the cameras have gone bad? Brand new batteries should still take more than 2 pictures.
My camera is doing the same thing with duracell and energizer, which i was using the 2 years prior!
