Hi doctech:
Turn on the camera, then go to the menu and set the time to shut off to 5 or 10 min. These settings are usually set to 2 min. or less. This setting is to let the camera "go to sleep" or simply shut down to save battery power.

You can also try the following:
Go to the set up menu, find the RESET ALL and reset all the settings to factory.
Then go back to the setup menu and set the setting as you want them making sure to set the shut off time to more than 2 min.

    Here is a link to troubles which may be related to this camera:

    The updating of the internal software called firmware may be what will help in this case.

    Worth a try.

    Make sure, if you update the firmware to follow the directions exactly,
    other wise you could damage the camera to the point of no return and
    render it of no use.

How can I download my recent pictures to my pc on my GE A730 camera? It wants to download all 41 I have, but I only want the most recent to avoid deleting all those duplicates I already have saved

Please see this blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

Do yourself a favor and purchase a USB Memory card reader at Radio Shack or other electronic store for about $10. You simply put your card in there and it becomes another drive on your PC. Then you can drag and drop your photos in Windows Explorer. This will also save you from having to run your camera batteries every time you want to dump pictures to your PC. This is how I've always done it and I can do it all in less than a minute. I just keep the USB card reader right in my camera bag. You should also be able to see your camera in Windows Explorer, as well and do the same thing; I just like the card reader better.
