Here's another tip: The Nikon CoolPix B500 uses individual batteries, not a rechargeable pack provided by Nikon or camera stores. Make sure that the batteries you put in are:

1) the right type (AA, D, etc)

2) placed in the slots properly (+ side of battery slot matches + side of battery)

3) fully charged

I had the same issue two times, both times, the batteries stopped working.

Another thing is that the Nikon Coolpix B500 is not a extreme temperature camera. Taking pictures in freezing or very hot temperatures can cause the camera to slow down or shut down.
