Panasonic LE15 digital camera - battery problem

If you have a problem that your camera keeps shutting down even with seeming good batteries, the cause may be due to one of the following:

1. the obvious is that the AA batteries are depleated and need renwal.
ensure you use high power or rechargable batteries and ensure they are fully charged as low power will cause the camera to shutdown.

2. check your flash memory installed on your camera, sometimes the memory may make a problem that causes the camera to shutdown with a battery or some other message. Try removing your flash memory and use your camera without it, to see if this is the problem. if it is a flash memory problem, remove and save any wanted data from the flashcard and then format it, by right clicking on it when inserted in your computer card reader and pressing format, (admin rights needed on windows) after this, re-insert the card back in the camera and test.

3. if batteries are not high power such as alakaline or carbon batteries the camera will shut down stateing that you should use high power batteries.
most digital camera with foldaway lenses will shut down while still having some power left in the battery this is to ensure that the lens and data is stored properly to avoid damage.
