Replace the battery :-)

I've replaced the batteries several times - even bought the best, most expensive ones and I still get the same message over and over - Battery Exhaused! Crazy. I love this camera's picture quality, but this is ever so frustrating! Sure do wish there was a "cure" for this problem.

Chosen Solution

Hi Cole,

There are a number of possible solutions you can try.

Check Battery Type

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.

Charge in Correct Order

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.

Replace Battery

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!

I've tried several times to put in new, fresh batteries - and within a few minutes "battery exhausted" message comes on, and I'm lucky if I was able to take even a couple of pictures! HELP!!

Exact same problem here - L21 eating away batteries in minutes, not hours. Any guesses?

It seems after you have bought enough batteries hoping two work, you may as well buy a new camera. I have the same problem and it is frustrating.
