SOURCE: Digital SLR will not focus
check the contacts on the lens... since it is copper and would develop copper rust... clean with iso alcohol and let air dry for an hour... clean the contacts on the camera too.
reset the camera back to factory defaults by mode dial to p, press menu, and custom reset back to factory defaults
also certain camera settings such as focus points and iso will help in low light

Your camera may be ok. Every and each camera has different reactions to a battery condition depending on the design of the circuit. Your battery may work ok on the other camera but this camera needs more juice (assuming the camera is working ok). If the camera demanding more power from the battery, try the rechargable batteries. Hope this helps. -James

Hi. Good Camera... Not being funny.. But do you have the instruction manual. If not first try resetting the camera. Once done, if you can live without live view don`t bother setting it up.
How to reset:-
-set the mode to manual
-press menu, scroll to the third yellow box with the spanner icon.
-scroll to Clear all camera settings,choose clear and confirm your choice.
When you are shooting make sure your lens is switched in AF mode.
Try this first and get back to me.
