Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera ?

My Nikon Coolpix S3000 says battery exhausted, but when I plug into charge it won't charge. Any suggestions?



Answers :

The rechargeable battery probably needs to be replaced, I would take it to a camera shop let him have a quick look to make sure the charge light is coming on and try a new battery.
Possible bad charger. Try plugging it into the usb port on a computer and see if the computer will charge it.

I have a Sony DSLR-300. I lost the separate battery charger and bought an AC adapter that plugs directly into the camera. When I plug it into the adapter a red light comes on for 1 second then shuts off. The camera turns on while plugged in but won't stay on when I unplug it after I've had it on charge for 30 minutes. Any suggestions? I'm not even sure if the battery charges through plugging it in directly to the outlet rather than a separate battery charger?

When we came in the battery was drained, which the manual says may be due to the cold. My daughter plugged it in for a charge but dropped in in doing so. It would no longer charge...not sure if that was due to the cold or the drop. After trouble-shooting, we thought it might just be due for a new battery, so we bought one, but it only flashed when plugged in to charge. We bought a
