Use of Oxyride batteries is not recommended since the battery condition indicator may not function correctly due to the characteristics of Oxyride batteries. The performance of Oxyride batteries is almost the same as that of alkaline batteries.

Low battery

The manual says:
The camera turns off immediately even when battery power is full.
The remaining battery power is low even if new batteries are inserted.
•The remaining battery power may not be displayed accurately, and the camera may suddenly stop working, when the type of battery and the settings on [BATTERY TYPE] are not identical. However this is not a malfunction. Depending on the battery
brand and the operating temperature, or if exhausted batteries are used, the remaining battery power may not be displayed accurately.
and:
Use sufficiently charged batteries when using Ni-MH batteries.
You also should set the correct battery type in the setup menu. So put in alkaline / NiMH or oxyride. According to what you are using.
Before you panic, buy a set of alkaline batteries, to make sure your camera is ok. Perhaps you are using rechagable batteries who are not ok anymore.
tip

Short battery life with AAs or camera won't even power up on new batteries?

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Camera consistently says "battery empty"....will not hold for more than a few minutes...yes I have tried new batteries!

The above is service and repair information for your camera.

Even, the manual says that you can use alkaline, NiMH, or Oxyride batteries. which are generally 1.25V for each AA, try the Lithium batteries which are 1.5V. They might work in your camera if your camera has some characteristic where the voltage falls below a certain limit and the 'battery empty' message shows up.

They are more expensive, but might solve your problem, even though the manual says that Lithium batteries are not to be used (in a new properly functioning camera)

Camera will not turn on, the red light keeps flashing until the battery goes flat and the camera states battery is empty.

My Olympus FE-310 has battery problems!

I have the same model and I sort of took a page out of Solution #2.
I don't have electronic technician experience so I took one main insight: The Poor Design of the Conduction in the bottom cover.
Here's what I did: I took some Copper Wire (mine came from the wire you use to hang paintings) and some Aluminum Foil.
Next I wrapped the Copper Wire with the Foil. The piece was roughly slightly bigger than 1/2 of a Postage Stamp.
Then I inserted this metal square over the batteries and closed the cover.
I found that I could take more shots without the camera saying Battery Empty.
See if this works. So far it's touchy but it's been taking more photos than before.

Batteries replaced but still says change them

hi,
I had the same problem; check carefully the yellow note from the camera box which says : use ONLY alkaline or rechargeable NI-Metal or oxyride batteries - DO NOT USE Ni-Cd nor lithium nor nickel nor manganese batteries. try that and pls let me know if it helped or if any other solution worked.
tx,
Peter

Whats wrong

What kind of batteries are you using? I had this problem with a Samsung camera when using alkalines. It behaved much better with rechargeables or oxyride batteries.

Camera is locked up

I have found what seems to be a common thread amongst most "lock-up" or "turn camera off" problems. It seems that although we are told that we can use common alkaline batteries, once we do it is only a short matter of time before the camera begins to break down. I have found amongst my friends with the same camera who have stuck to the oxyride batteries that they are not having problems with their cameras. My suggestion, stick to the oxyride batteries. Overall they last longer anyhow, you just have to pay a little more upfront.

Hope this helps.
