SOURCE: change battery message
I was just messing with my camera that had the same problem, my camera would allow me to view pictures with out the message popping up so i had the memory card out while it was on and put the card back in while the camera was still on and in view mode and pushed the button to take a picture and it switched modes without saying change the batteries. it said no memory card but i turned it off and back on and it was as good as new...probably a lucky fluke in my case but hopefully it will work for those with the same problem.

I just had the same issue when one of my children drop the camera. I'm not wanting to break anyone's camera but I was able to open the lens cover and pull the lens out and then turning it on it retracted and worked just like it should.

try new Alkaline batteries or fully charged NiMH batteries, you may need to clean and adjust the springs in the battery compartment
this tips may give you more details

I have the same problem with mine!! Had it about 14 months now too!! Glad I'm not the only one... I don't know what to do! I have gotten brand new rechargeable batteries and instead of getting 250 shots, I only get like 20!

The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).
