There is a battery type setting in the menu of your camera.
You need to set them first.

Just press the Menu/ Ok button then got to Set Up 2, scroll it down to Battery type.

Select Alkaline if you are using non-rechargeable batteries and NiMH for rechargeable batteries.

Use lithium batteries. I had a problem when our camera would turn on for a few seconds, beep 3 times, and then shut off. The best batteries, which are actually recomended for this camera is the lithium batteries. I strongly suggest them.

No picture on screen after 1 second

Try this. Go to your tools menu, look for something like power saver or display off and change the duration that the screen stays on.
