The L22 takes two standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or lithiums, or rechargeable NiMHs. Don't mix them, that is, use two of the same kind. If you use rechargeables, you must charge them separately; the camera is not a battery charger. You can use any brand, though I'd stick with the major brands.
Lithiums will last longer than alkalines but cost more. Rechargeable batteries cost more and won't hold a charge as long as alkalines, but can be reused.
You can try updating the firmware if it is possible first.If this doesn't help then try removing the batteries off the camera
and allow the camera to reset for an hour and then put them back. If this doesn't help then You need to use 2500 or higher rechargeable batteries - as soon as you
switch to this type of battery, it will work fine!
Your camera requires four AA size batteries.There are several factors that contribute to battery life:
This is the best solution for enjoyment and cost savings. NiMH
batteries typically last longer per charge than the average alkaline
batteries. NiMH batteries are rechargeable batteries, so they can be
used several times and thereby reduce the expense of continually
purchasing new batteries. NiMH batteries are typically sold with a
power adapter for charging. The life of these batteries can often be
determined by the mAh rating, the higher the mAh rating on the battery,
the longer that they will last. NiMH batteries do not have the memory
effect associated with NiCd batteries, which means that these batteries
can be recharged at any time and at your convenience (you do not have
to wait for the batteries to completely drain between charges).
Energizer has introduced a new series of Lithium batteries that provide
optimum performance and long life for disposable AA size batteries.
Laboratory studies shows that Lithium batteries last more than three
times as long as standard Alkaline batteries. This means many more
hours of fun and satisfaction with your digital camera. These lithium
batteries are not rechargeable, they are long lasting.
Using the LCD display, downloading images, playback, zoom and flash all
require some battery power to operate and may decrease the number of
shots per set of batteries. Performance may also vary based on the
Alkaline batteries selected. To significantly increase battery life, be
sure to turn off the LCD when it is not in use. The LCD consumes the
most amount of battery power. The benefit of being able to use alkaline
batteries is that you can find then almost anywhere if needed.
If you are using manganese batteries, the typical battery life will be
about 2 - 5 shots. Then the camera will indicate that battery power is
low and may shut-down. To avoid this experience, use either Alkaline or
Optimum Solution: Use a set of NiMH batteries
for longer use and to reduce the expense of continually buying new
batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a spare set of NiMH
batteries for other devices that require AA size batteries on a regular
basis. Use AA Alkaline batteries when the NiMH batteries need to be
recharged and you want to continue enjoying the use of your camera.

Please use lithium for consistent performance at the bottom of your camera, engraved at the battery door CRV3 (lithium) is at the top of the list it's the no. 1 recommended battery for Kodak cameras with ccd image sensor
performance of the cam with alkaline.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Make sure that you use the correct type of batteries some cameras prefer Alkaline or Zinc Carbon both at v1.5 some only can take 3 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (Nicad) Cells at 1.3V (3x1.5v= 3.9V) or one Lithium Ion at 3.6V
Be careful if you put a 1.3V NiCad Rechargeable in a camera that was designed for 1.5 Alkaline it can damage the camera and you may experience similar problems to that you have now.
Always check that you are using the recommended batteries, this is why most manufactures supply there own Lithium Ion 3.6V rechargeable K type cells to avoid this type of problem.
It sounds like a software issue. Although easyshares didn't have to load patches, it is possible this one may require it.
As far as the batteries are concerned, this camera eats a lot of batteries. You should use re-chargeable lithium batteries. It doesn't really matter what brand you get, but be sure to get lithium rather than alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries are better suited for the burst discharge needs of a digital cam. Please make sure that your software is v.4.0.

You can use two LB-01E 3V lithium batteries, four B-01 4PE AA Ni-MH batteries (BU-40SU charger and batteries), four AA Ni-CD batteries, four AA Alkaline batteries the B-10LPB Lithium Polymer Battery or the New B-12LPB Lithium Polymer Battery . Please note: the B-10LPB Lithium Polymer Battery, B-HLD10 Power Battery Holder and the B-20LPCE charger are included in the B-30 LBS kit, and the B-12LPB Lithium Polymer Battery, B-HLD10 Power Battery Holder and the B-20LPCE charger are included in the B-32 LBS kit.
