Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix L1 Digital Camera ?

Camera shows battery exhausted with new batteries.

\015 I've tried 3 different types of batteries now. Brand new, slightly used with charge, and fully charged re-chargeable batteries. It let's me set the date and time but then the "battery exhausted" symbol shows up. If I click confirm for the date/time, it goes off. If I let it sit and not set the date/time, it goes off. Is it broken or is there a specific type of AA batteries I'm not using.\015
