Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5150s Digital Camera

Vivitar 5150s turns off after taking picture

All of a sudden, my Vivitar Vivicam 5150s shuts off as soon as you snap a picture. It seems to take the picture, but it doesn't keep it, and then everything turns off. Am I doing something wrong? I deleted all the pictures on the memory card, hoping that would help, but it didn't.

Thanks for any help!

    What I intended to say was this camera can go through a set of battery's in a couple of weeks even
    when the camera is not being used. That was the case for mine. another possibility is to take the memory stick out to see if the problem goes away.The camera will work without the expanded memory.

You can't. The ViviCam 5150s does not record sound in video mode. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you can't record one on the camera.
