This is an issue with GE digital cameras 730, 735, 830, and 835. It is just a matter of a firmware upgrade. It is truly annoying to many people and not everybody knows about the upgrade. It is a pain in the ****...just the works.
Try going to
Once you get there look to the left of the screen to find the blue box that says Quick Links and then click on Firmware Upgrades and then look for the upgrade relating to your camera and follow the directions to the dime and you will have a working camera that doesn't shut off every couple of minutes. I hope this helps you.

DaddyCass, I'd like to recommend to you that you put in new, not bought recently, or just charged, but new "Alkaline" batteries - don't skimp out on the black Eveready or the red ones (Energiser and Duracell are good).
Do this to be sure, because it really sounds like a power problem, and if you are using rechargables, you're rechargeables may be on the way out, supplying enough power to run low-powered items, but not enough for a high-load item like a digital camera.
Try this and let us know what eventuates.

Camera turns off immediately after being turned on. thought it was the battery, bought new one charged it and even though it says full charge, the camera still wont stay on.

This fault is usually caused by a lens problem.
Over 95 percent of lens problems are from Knock damaged or sand/grit in mechanism. Try turn it on in playback mode and see, does the lens come out and go back in before it turns off?

Fridge not staying cold

did you let the fridge stay in it's new place for 24 hours up right before turning it on?
Try turning it off for at least 24 hours and start it back up again.
If you moved it on its side the compressor oil flows into the lines and must beable to drain back down before using it.
If not you'll seeze the compressor.
not good.
