Camera has been a decent digital but recently when I load a new set of batteries, the camera shuts down on low battery after 5 or 10 shots. I can disassemble and check voltages. If someone can give me any tips on this I'd appreciate it.
Buy a Nikon!
Sony wanted about 3/4ths the cost of the camera to fix it. It had just run out of warranty when it started having problems. Sony is quite inflexible when it comes to warranty. I'll send my several hundred $ to nikon rather than fix something that may break down again (and still be out of warranty).
I'd appreciate some guidance. Lately my camera has been working odd - I put charged batteries in take a photo or 2 and it shows fully discharged. I turn camera off and on or take out batteries and out back and show full and I get another photo or two and the same issue. I tried cleaning the battery compartment connectors which appear clean and problem remains.

Have you checked the batteries on the camera? Weak batteries will shut the camera off any time ther is a call for power that exceeds the charge left in the battery.If after you change or charge the battery and you are still having this issue let me know and we can go from there. Please use Sony Cyber-shot batteries for DSC-H2 model camera If your camera keeps shutting down and not allowing any pictures to be taken, use the 3 pixel setting. It may allow you to get at least some use out of the camera. After reading numerous reviews on this unit and comparing the performance of mine to that of a friend who also has it, I have to say that SONY made a slew of defective cameras and this should have been a recall. Some cameras seem to work fine, thus the good reviews. Others, and there are many many of these, shut down unexpectedly, won't work well on the 5 mega pixel setting, take terrible pictures (especially in low light) and generally aren't worth the money you paid for them. What I soon learned was that it was running low on battery power and needed to be off most of the time or you would go through batteries like butter. Even when the camera is off and loaded with new cells it will quickly deplete itself. So you have to turn the thing off if you aren't about to shoot...this makes catching that special shot almost impossible, especially since when you do turn it on you then have to wait and wait and wait for the shutter to snap. Forget anything with low light
You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.
