Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

You will have to contact Nikon about any warranty claims. The standard warranty seems to be 1 year.
I have found that there is a firmware update for this camera that allows for support for Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (the original firmware only supported alkaline or lithium batteries). Try that firmware update to see if it resolves your issue.

I have the same problem with my Coolpix L100. On 27 December 2010 after taking a few shots with flash, using rechargable batteries for one year, it displayed in Hungarian that the batteries are depleted, but after I have recharged them, the camera did not start again anymore, displaying in continue that the batteries are depleted, and it turn off itself after a few seconds. I think that the problem is with the sensor of the camera that should measure the battery status, because even if I had new batteries it desplayed an icon with half battery but I never let it depleted totally so far. Now I am wondering if NIKON will offer free service for it as I have bought it just about 16 months ago in the Romanian DOMO market chain.

Moultrie camera mfh-dgw 2.1 reads BATTERY LOW but battery has full charge.


1st, unless you have a solar panel on this cam, stay away from rechargeable batteries.When new they will be @100+%, but have to be virtually drained to get to charge back, and then will only charge to about 80%.A solar charger will keep them @ above 80%.
Now, to solve your prob;I have found dirty/corroded contacts;evidence of dampness/corrosion @battery connections to main board; and fireants...they are attracted to electrical and will electricute themselves causing open connections...just a few solutions to ck out.

Why does my camera say batteries depleted and shuts down when i put new batteries in it


As a workaround, you need to take out the memory card and take our the batteries as well. let it stay out for like 15 minutes and then put everything back. Or you can try using new and fresh batteries.

This commonly happens if you are using alkaline batteries. You need to use a high capacity NiMH rechargeables for better solution.

Battery depleted


Sounds like the battery might be defective/worn out. If it's AA batteries (a.k.a. R6) try with a pair of good-quality alkaline batteries to see if it works then. Cheap batteries often doesn't have enogh "umph" to power cameras.

Clean the contacts in the battery chamber to get to the bottom of the chamber use an eraser on the end of a pencil Also the top contacts. you could also try packing out the contacts on the tops of the batteries to ensure good contact.
