New Batteries Don't Last Long Enough To Reconfigure Camara...
...when it comes time to actually take a picture, "Battery Exhausted” screen shows when the shutter button is pressed. This keeps happening and I can’t get that many quality pictures from a giving set of brand new batteries!

i have this camera and i had the same problem
everytime i put in new batteries like 5 seconds later the battery was exhusted i tried cheap and expensive batteries but nothing seemed to work
i would recomend rechargealbe batteries because they last longer but if you prefer one-time use batteries you should change they battery type in the menu/ setup
hope this helps!! good luck
Actually I have this camera and one that didn't stay on without fresh batteries every few minutes was given to me to tinker with. It is a software problem and if you are patient and follow the directions exactly...a simple firmware upgrade should resolve this issue for you.
Go to: http://www.general-imaging.com/us/firmware.html
Locate the blue box on the left that says QUICK LINKS and then click on FIRMWARE UPGRADES and locate your camera model. I hope this is helpful.
Try this: RESET ALL in the menu or setup menu. If that does not work, make sure that the in the menu (if it is there) you set the battery type to rechargeable not alkaline . You may try alkaline batteries, if it does the same, the camera may need repair.
Some cameras will not set the battery type automatically.
When batteries are low and they are not used for a period of time, they can build up enough voltage to give a full battery indication. The batteries only had enough power to shoot one image. The batteries are exhausted and need to be replaced or recharged.
