Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

My nikion coolpix l20(red) Batteries die within 2 hours!

\015 Can someone please help i just got it the other day\015

Answers :

I have an L20 also, and I have never had that problem. Try using different kinds of batteries. If that doesn't work, it's probably just a glitch in the camera. You could have accidentally gotten water on it, that would damage it and cause a battery problem. If that's not the case, I would just take it back.

Rollei dp 6200 - I have problems with trying to charge the battery. It rapidly loses the charge - within a copule of hours one third of the charge is lost and within 24 - 36 hours it is completely falt. This ia all without using the camera. I have changed the memory card as Rollei Service told me that the camera does not support 1GB, but even with 512MB it is the same. This has been going on for a couple of years at least and the original camera was replaced by Rollei within the first two years

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts to charge it, the camera would not allow me to take photos due to the battery needing recharging (flashing one bar). I ordered a new Nikon battery and put it in the charger when it arrived today. It registered that it was charging and after over an hour said it was completely charged. When

I've just bought a Coolpix S200 for my nephew. Although new It did not come with a battery or charger.These I bought on E-Bay separately (with the correct specifications).
