I can only take a total of 10 pictures before my camera goes dead on a new set of batteries. I have used charged batteries, and rechargables also. It lasts only a little longer with the rechargables. I have a friend that has a different model but with the same problem. It doesn't use the flash on every shot, so it couldn't be that. The problem started on the first usage, I have spent a fortune on batteries. Now the camera won't even come on at all with fresh batteries installed?
I have similar problems with a Kodak .. i bought the best lithium ion rechargeable batteries. and it still only lasted for about 10 min.. i put them in the charger and the charger lit up green...meaning the batteries are ready and fully charged only took about 15 min.to go green. i thought that was strange so next time i just let them stay in the charger for like 3 hours....the next time i used my camera i had it taking pictures for over 2 hours..non stop!!! i was so happy..so the dumb charger was incorrect when it says the battery was fully charged..

Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.
It is possible that there is a fault, or that the battery connections in the camera are dirty or corroded, but digital cameras are famously demanding on batteries. You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH recharegables. Zinc or "long life" batteries just aren't up to the task.
New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.
It is possible to insert one or both of the batteries the wrong way around. There should be a little +/- graphic or picture of a battery on the compartment to show you which way each battery goes.
the camera takes just about any AA pair of batteries ... lithium will give you the most pictures .. your NiMH batteries should last longer unless they are old .. you may have one weak battery ... you can try a pair of standard alkalines to see if there is something wrong with the camera .. if those work ok then you need a new set of NiMH ... there is a new type out called "eneloop" .. they are just like normal NiMH except they dont go dead when you store them .. even after a year they are still charged .. with normal NiMH batteries as they age they will self discharge in 2 weeks or so .. so you have to charge them just before you use them ..otherwise they go dead on their own .. if you charge them then not use them for a week then you will not get nearly as many pictures ... the eneloop batteries fix that .. you can also recharge them many more times than standard NiMH batteries .. they cost about the same ..
Sorry to hear that you have problem with the camcorder. It does have few situations with not charging battery based on our repair experience. I would suggest to make sure the battery is fully charged and see how it goes. If there's any battery problem, you should send it to Sanyo for manufacture before the warranty expires. Makes sure send every thing back to Sanyo. Battery problem cannot be solved simply other than bad battery contact situation. -James
If you have used this camera more than three months Try changing the battery. Before using fully charge the battery. Let the battery consumed in your camera fully then you charge again. Otherwise the battery life will reduce. Try this option before trying any other option.
Short in the camera so you do not get proper switch off even when you switch the camera off ( so it stays on all the time ). Or your charger is not fully charging your batteries which then go into your camera say half charged and dont last very long.
