Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

Battery exhausted after only a few pictures

\015 Is this camera having battery problems? I have had mine for several years with no problems, and good battery life. When I turned it on last week it said battery exhaused. I put in new batteries, took maybe 10-15 shots, and then when on vacation. I took around 15-20 more shots and all of a sudden I got the same battery exhausted message. I just tested the batteries and they are still good.\015

Answers :

There are different Mah ratings on rechargeable batteries. Check your owner's manual and see what amperage rating the battery should have. Then check the amp rating of your replacement battery.
I've found that cheaper batteries are available and they're cheap for a good reason...they don't work well.
I would suggest going with Nikon batteries if you haven't done so already...
I think you'll find a great difference in service life.
This could be corrosion, or oxidation on the battery terminals inside the computer. You will have to clean them with a qtip and alcohol, or pencil eraser, or whatever you can reach them with. When the terminals get slightly corroded, they draw more current from the battery, shortening it's life, even if they're new. Try to clean the terminals as well as you can, and hopefully it will help. Otherwise, the unit will require service. Make sure you get an estimate before having it fixed, though, since the cost of repair can easily exceed the cost of a new camera on sale. Good luck, hope this helps.

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. I got a little juice in the camera and realized that one photo disappeared. I took a shot and the last set of pictures that I had just viewed simply disappeared. I put my memory card into another camera and the pictures were not there either. Help!! I have a CoolPix 10.

Olympus x-840 digital camera. Hi, there is a problem with the battery life; fully charged batteries seem to be exhausted after only a dozen or so pictures. The battery indicator plunging from a full set of greens to a single red and then the camera refusing to turn on. Then after taking the batteries out and re-inserting them everything seems fine again for the next few shots - and then the same cycle of events plays out again...


The best solution is to buy NiMh batteries 2300 mA or greater 2500 mA to 2700 mA and so I have no more problems with this excellent Olympus x 840 camera. In Belgium i have payed a little more than 50 euro for the batteries and the charger. ... Digital Cameras

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin
