Wont turn on C-160, flicking screen

When i go to turn on my camera, the screen flickers from black to a darker shade of balck, i cant use any buttons or take pictures. I took out my 64mg memory card and cleared it, put it back in, and it still wont work
Today i tried using batteries i have never used before and only after that has it started doing this. Once i take the batteries out and put them back in, the screen comes on for a few seconds but then the flicking starts.
PLEASE HELP

Dear emjay187,
i have the same camera and experiencing the same problem, it doesn't matter what batteries i put in (fully charged rechargables or dry cell AA) the low battery icon flashes then the screen flickers and goes off. i suspect it to be another onboard battery so i have found a small button 3v battery soldered to the main board. i have desoldered it and am now sourcing one so when i find it and try it i will contact you to confirm my results.

regards
Michael.
