There is an option for changing battery types in the menu. The accs that came with my camera where very good Lithium-Mh type. If replaced with ordinary Alkaline non-rechargable, you have to adjust battery settings, probably also if you got the very expensive Lithium-Ion batterys. The thig is that these three types has different voltages; 1.2, 1.5 and 3.2 (I think) respectivly.
Wrong settings could perhaps cause this your problem.

Can I use only kodak batteries in my easyshare or is the energizer AA batteries ok? Will I ruin my camera if I install energizer?

Hi. You can use any make of 'normal' non-rechargeable alkaline AA batteries, or rechargeable NiMH AA batteries, but those will also need a battery charger.

Rechargeable batteries and a charger are more expensive to start with but are much more economical in the long run and especially if you use your camera fairly often.

The latest 'Hybrio' types hold their charge better when stored, but again they are a little more expensive but they can all be used in most other gadgets. The ordinary NiMh batteries do not hold the voltage quite as well as Hybrio, or even the older type of NiMh batteries but this does not often matter.

You will find that the capacity of rechargeable batteries varies from about 850 to 2100 'mah' (milli amp hours), so some will last longer than others but otherwise it does not matter which type you use. The latest 'Hybrio' types hold their charge better when stored, but again they are a little more expensive.

You will not damage your camera if you install energizer, so have fun with it!

Installed new batteries and the camera will not turn on. The camera has been sitting up for 6 mo. with no use. We used energizer lithium batteries.

Try using recomended batteries:
optional KODAK EASYSHARE Docks with 1 KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KAA2HR; 2 Ni-MH batteries AA, 2 lithium batteries AA; 1 KODAK Lithium Digital Camera Battery CRV3; KODAK Ni-MH 2100mAh Battery Pack, KODAK Digital Camera Battery AA (ZR6); KODAK Alkaline Digital Camera Batteries AA; 3 volt DC input AC adapter

You can even contact Kodak direct and they will send you a free CRV3 battery to test with.

Energizer +AA NIMH Batteries consumed quickly

There are many grades of batteries under the same manufacturers name. They have a different Ah rating. The lower the Ah the shorter the time they will last.

Batteries fot Optio S50

Because digital cameras require such a high amount of current it is not recommended to use Alkaline batteries. My best suggestion would be to purchase rechargeable batteries that meet the following requirements. (AA Rechargeable Batteries with a minimum of 1800mAh (or higher) Nickel MetalHydride 1.2V). or (Panasonic CR-V3 3V Lithium Battery)
