My camera keeps saying "battery exhausted". How to fix it?
My camera keeps saying "battery exhausted" I've done everything online tells me but it doesn't work. What to do?
A 14.1 MP camera released in 2012. The Nikon Coolpix L310 support and repair information.
There are a number of possible solutions you can try.
You may have the incorrect battery type selected in your camera's menu. Find out which type of battery is currently in your camera, and check it with your camera's current settings. To view your currently selected battery type (or to change your battery type) press the MENU button > Setup Menu > Battery Type. From here, you can make sure your battery matches the type selected in your camera.
This sounds silly, but you may have to plug in your camera and charging adapter in a specific order. According to Nikon's answers forum, first plug the USB cable into the charging adapter. Then, plug the adapter into a wall outlet, and finally connect the other end of the USB cable to your camera. (Make sure the camera is powered OFF.) Take care to perform these steps in this specific order.
Most likely, you'll need to get a new set of batteries. This particular model defaults to AA alkaline batteries but also accepts AA lithium batteries or Nikon EN-MH2 rechargeable Ni-MH batteries.
If you get stuck, take a look at the Nikon Coolpix L310 user's manual.
Best of luck!
Hi Cole, I had the same problem with my Nikon Coolpix L100. I tried everything, but without luck. I realised that in my case the problem was linked to Firmware being out of date. I wasn’t able to access the menu despite changing batteries.
I have purchased the power adaptor (the one that you put into mains), took out the batteries and powered up the camera. I declined to set up date/time and finally was able to access the camera. Hope this helps.
