The camera asks two very different things out of nowhere. its something with power off and something else. if you choose power off the camera will turn off but when you turn it back on, the same thing will display. if you chose the other option, all your pictures will get erased. There's no other alternative for this, but erase all your pictures or you're just going to press power off and do the same thing until the battery dies. what can i do?

The best way to erase all your pics at one time is to format the memory card. In fact, the memory card should be formatted each time you finish downloading the pics to your computer. Formatting not only erases the pics but also cleans up the directory structure and file information. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pics from memory cards that haven't been formatted recently.
if you want to erase all ..just get to the menu ...storage ..and memory card ..and choose format ..this will erase all into the camera and format the card again which is a good thing in case you had errors.. anyway ..in the view mode..it has to have something called multiple deleting or erasing ...and in there you can sort the pictures by name and delete them all at once ..
Do not format the card....it will be erased. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. When the pics are safely downloaded, then you can format the card but it in the camera, not the computer.
This occassionally happens with memory cards formatted using FAT. The simplest way for you to get the pics of the card when such a thing happens is to get a card reader. Pop the card in to the card reader, connect it to your PC and transfer the pics. Then format it using FAT32. I have noticed that my card was a lot more reliable in saving pics compared to FAT.
What kind of camera? EZ solution. Put camera on AUTO if there is such a setting, usually if there is a rotary selector, its the A or even P for program. Turn it on, point and shoot. Download Picasa from Google website, plug camera into USB computer and Picasa will automatically show you whats on the camera, will ask you to name the folder they will be downloaded to, will ask you if you want to erase the memory card after uploading, and even put them onto a public web page if you want. Easiest software I have come across. When Picasa opens, youll see the different folders, click on the one you want to look at, and if there is a pic that didnt come out or is unwanted, just hit del on the PC keyboard and its gone.
I have the same exact problem. I just now read a possible solution: try opening the battery compartment door and then closing it again to "trick" the camera into thinking it just got new batteries. There is definitely something wrong with the way the camera senses dead batteries.
