Question about Cameras
it only fixed to put rechargables in. tried to use rechargeable batteries.
Alkaline batteries stored at "room temperature" self discharge at a rate of less than two percent per year. So normally refrigerating or freezing them will only help maintain their charge by a tiny amount. Hardly worth the effort of chilling them. However, if alkaline batteries are stored at higher temperatures they will start to lose capacity much quicker. At 85 degrees F they only lose about 5% per year, but at 100 degrees they lose 25% per year. So if you live in a very hot climate or are storing your batteries in a very hot location, it may be worthwhile for you to store your alkaline batteries in a refrigerator instead.
NiMH and NiCd batteries self discharge at a MUCH faster rate than alkaline batteries. In fact, at "room temperature" (about 70 degrees F) NiMH and NiCD batteries will self discharge a few percent PER DAY. Storing them at lower temperatures will slow their self discharge rate dramatically. NiMH batteries stored at freezing will retain over 90% of their charge for full month. So it might make sense to store them in a freezer. If you do, it's best to bring them back to room temperature before using them. Even if you don't freeze your NiMH batteries after charging them, you should store them in a cool place to minimize their self discharge.
When u use cheaper batteries usually get that message, but when u use more expensive batteries It don't and can take 400+ pictures.
For an example when u use Rayovac Heavy Duty batteries (4 pack costs about .99) It can take maybe 20 pictures, but when u use Energizer batteries ($3-$4 for a 4 pack) 400+ pictures can be taken. I'm not sure why this is, but it is something.....

Make sure camera is off and not on when you change battery's. It probably messed with something with you just took the batterys out while it was on. So turn Camera off take new ones out put old ones in turn camera on, turn camera off take old ones out and put new ones in and start it up.. Hope it helps.
