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
Re: Wrong batteries settings prevents access to menu
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.

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.
Look in the menu on the battery feature...most cameras have 2 choices for batteries...and need to be set before changing the battery type..if it has in the battery (power feature) the choice to set it on the lithium ones..it means that will work ..if not ..use alkaline or ..get some rechargeable ..ones..cause they last more..and are not that expensive and can be recharged..
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.
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.
Use lithium batteries. I had a problem when our camera would turn on for a few seconds, beep 3 times, and then shut off. The best batteries, which are actually recomended for this camera is the lithium batteries. I strongly suggest them.
