Wrong batteries settings prevents access to menu

I have mistakenly changed the batterie type, for lithium batteries, I don´t have that kind of batteries, and when I turn on the camera, send a batteries exhausted error with my nickel metal batteries. So I can´t go back to the menu to change that wrong setting, turning off and on, the first that displays the camera is that error, so I can't enters the menu. Is there any way to make a hard reset to recover the defaults settings? or to change the batteries type or simulate lithium type batteries justo to enter to menu again? Of course I mean solving the problem without buying that kind of batteries Thanks, a lot and forgive my stupidity

Charge fully the batteries you have, to prevents the camera distinguish the type of batteries (maybe the camera senses the charge), turn on the camera and you will have access to the menu to set up the batteries type correctly, that´s all.

I just bought the Lithium - ion batteries for replacement for my 18.0 volt ni-cad battery. when I put it (ion battery) in the charger (ni-cad charger) no lights come on. what's up?

Lithium Ion batteries don't charge the same way ni-cads or ni-mh do. You need a lithium ion specific charger to charge them. (Some chargers do multiple types.)

TI 82 Does it need the disk battery and 4 AAA batteries to work?

No. The calculator runs on the four AAA batteries. The lithium battery is solely to retain the contents of the memory while you change the AAA batteries. If you don't care about retaining the memory, you don't need the lithium battery. You do, however, need the AAA batteries to use the calculator.

I have a digipower lithium power charger TC-U100 and cannot get my Casio NP-60 battery to charge in it. Am I inserting it wrong?

Maybe. This unit charges all different kinds of batteries, but that requires you to make sure that you have set the prongs in the right position to connect with the particular battery you are charging. You move two pins to align with the outer contacts on your battery (not the middle one) and then a spring door holds the battery against them. The unit sets the polarity automatically. 4 lights blink green until the battery is fully charged at 4 solid lights, i.e. 1 blinking light is a quarter charged.

Camera showing battery exhausted with new batteries

There are three battery type settings in the set up menu: Alkaline, COOLPiX(NiMH) and Lithium. Might be worth looking at. To be continued.

Don't know what this red thing is on the screen

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.

"Battery Empty" sign with camera shut off

You may try to set in setup the kind of batteries you are using. Many digital cameras allow you to set the kind of batteries being used. Whether or not this will solve the problem, is yet to be seen.
