Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Dollar store batteries are even worse. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. The best batteries to use with your camera would be rechargeable NiMH batteries. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.
Now if your camera is stuck half open/half closed due to the batteries dieing during startup, try to reset it by removing the memory card, and then starting the camera with GOOD batteries. If the camera starts (in error mode due to the missing card), shut off the camera, reinsert the memory card, then restart the camera.
