This usually occurs when the camera is exposed to water, sweat, high humidity or if you had leaky alkaline batteries. You have 2 choices to try. 1 take the camera apart and use an old toothbrush with WD40 and scrub the circiut board, you can inspect the battery compartment to see if you have corrosion from leaky batteries and do the above to fix. 2 use the camera as is and remove the batteries after each use.

My camera is eating up batteries. I'll use it very little. Let's say I have a 2 hour photo shoot a week and the batteries are going soon after. I upload photos to computer so it is on for another 20...

I have one of these Camera too. They are great.
Are you using rechargeable batteries? If so they are nearing the end of service life and need to be replaced.
If you are using regular batteries are they name brand or generic. It is possible you got a bad batch.
If you have access to a volt meter,
  • Test the battery before installing.
  • If chargeable, they should read 1.2-1.4 volts.
  • If regular, they should read 1.5 volts or better.
Other than the above, check inside battery compartment with a flashlight, and look for any dirt or corrosion.

The double aa bateries die out very quickly, i'm using duracel alkaline. why is this happening?

Check your camera settings , set it so the display doesnt
run all the time .
Some cameras eat batterys fast , lithium batterys are
best if thats the case , or high capacity rechargables.

Low or no battery

Is your batteris are comply with the specs described at the users manual?
If so, check the opreation temperature range if its fits your situation. Some devices can act abnormal below or above specified temperature ranges.
Out of those possibilities, another reason could be the internal circuitry resistance problem. Excessive resistance can eat up your batteries quickly, lower ampere batteries are tend to last very short time when they compared to higher ampere ones. Especially on cameras.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries

you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!

please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe.
the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it.
after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast.
even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.
