Re: use of batteries in digital camera
You can change from nickel metal hylide to lithium ion batteries but you need a lithium charger. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE chargers! I've had my sony mavica for 7 years I have not needed to change the flashtube. the flashtube is a xenon based flashtube.

The Nikon CoolPix 3200 has an unusual battery selection AND also needs the type of battery being used to be selected in the set up menu. The default is Alkaline, if you are not using Alkaline this function may be part of your rapid discharge. What I would suggest is to switch to a "good" set of Ni-MH batteries, generally these can be bought as a set/kit with a charger. If you have a manual what I'm referring to is on pages 18 and 19. For changing the setting for battery type can be found on page 96. The battery choices for this camera can be confusing to anyone. Happy Holidays from Robert in Canada
The S220 uses the EN-EL10 battery. The camera does NOT incorporate any charging circuitry, so connecting it to a computer actually drains the battery. In order to charge the battery, you need the MH-63 battery charger or a third-party equivalent.
If you need a charger, you can order one from your local Nikon dealer or from http://www.nikonmall.com
I beleive your batteries are of incorrect type or you need to set the type of the battery through menu. My favorite batteries are from Wal-mart: Energizer rechargeable Ni-Mh 2450mAh, (15 min recharging time) they fit any type of camera without setting the battery type through menu. Some incorrect type of batteries often damage the CCD. Ni-Mh Energizer never damages the CCD (black screen), while regular (non-rechargeable) Energizers may damage CCD in Sony S700 or similar cameras.
