I just charged my camera's batteries and an error
Your camera is telling you that the batteries have insufficient power. First thing to check is that the battery contacts on both the batteries and inside the camera are bright, clean and free of grease or oil.
Assuming that you're using the original NiMH rechargeable batteries which came with the camera, then you almost certainly need to replace them with new ones as they cannot be reused indefinitely.
To test whether the problem is with your rechargeables or with your camera is very easy. Just buy a set good quality, non rechargeable, alkaline (e.g. Duracell) AA batteries. If the problem disappears then you know that you need to buy new rechargeable NiMH batteries next time.
There is also a small possibility that you have a faulty recharger but it's unlikely. The only way to test it without special tools is to try getting your NiMH batteries charged in a borrowed recharger. If the batteries get fully charged then the error message on your camera will vanish and you'll need to buy a new recharger. Just make sure that the charger is designed for NiMH though or you will damage your batteries and possibly the charger.
