This camera is noteworthy for this problem. Only non-rechargeable batteries seemed to work, and that gets expensive! But the solution for me was simple. You have to spend a little more money upfront, and get high capacity (e.g. 2450 mAh) batteries. You should be able to get those at Target or Walmart. The 2100 mAh ones just won't do the job.

Using the cheap, low capacity rechargeable batteries, I could only get a few shots off. With the high capacity ones, I can do 40 or so easily.

I JUST BOUGHT THIS CAMERA...DOES ANYONE KNOW IF IM SUPPOSE TO BUY AN ADDITIONAL MEMEORY CARD OR SOMETHING FOR IT TO WORK CAUSE AFTER TAKING A PIC...IT WONT GO INTO PLAYBACK MODE FOR ME TO VIEW PICS


No not at all. All phones, all cameras come with a limited amount of memory to allow you to take a few pictures. Did you buy this used? If so toto view all pictures/view pictures and delete a few to free up memory. This way you can be certain it's not the camera that's defective. If it works then of course you'll need a memory card so you don't have to keep running to your computer to upload your shots to free up memory.hope this helps

Is it showing any message on screen as to why it won't take pictures or is it when you switch over from viewing to taking pics that it shuts off or just won't let you take pics?

Battery won't hold a charge


Buying recharable batteries will not solve the problem of the battery draining quickly but will help save $ by not having to purchase so many disposable batteries. Check your user guide to see what kind of batteries your camera will accept. Lithium ion rechargeable is the best if compatible. Lithium ion disposible (CRV3) will last a long time as a secondary choice if compatible. Some cameras drain batteries more quickly than others. Just a tip to help reduce the drain: don't use your LCD screen when unnecessary (such as scrolling through several of your pics in-between snapping pics).

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Stuck on standby


The sliding button above the LCD display has three settings. You need to slide the button to the right, A camera icon for taking pictures, a movie camera in the middle and the green arrow on the left to view pictures and movies taken

Batteries


Yes I do. We have 2 of these cameras, and have tried every kind of battery out there, incuding rechargables.

This little camera does a lot of things for the price, but it is always hungry. We've only found ONE battery that actually works for it (and takes more than 2-3 pics before giving us error messages), and that is the energizer "e" battery in the silver and BLUE package. They have orange and green packs but make sure you try the BLUE ones.

You might think they are a little pricey (we buy ours at the local WM for around $6 for two, or 419 for eight), but they truly work. Plus, even when they no longer power the camera, there is plenty of juice left in them to power other battery operated items. Our hair trimmers have been running for two months now on a pair of batteries that would no longer power up the camera.

That should solve the battery problems. And, we've also noticed the older the camera gets, the moer likely it is to be extremely picky on the batteries and the DC card!

Can view memory card but wont power up to take pics


Try using brand new fully charged rechargeable batteries like NiMH or NiCd. Also try viewing though the computer via USB.
