Having problems with your GE A730 Digital Camera ?

Battery exhausted warning

\015 I have a GE A730 digital camera. I bought mine and 2 others last December. The "battery exhausted" warning shows up after just a couple of pictures although the battery indicator shows the battery to be charged. The camera shuts down. I have replaced all of my rechargeable batteries with new and fully charged ones to no avail. I have deleted all my picures and videos after downloading them and formatted my memory - also to no avail. Can you help? I see that others have had the same problem.\015

Hello justplainles:

Do the others show the same problem?

Try this: RESET ALL in the menu or setup menu.
If that does not work, make sure that the in the menu (if it is there) you set the battery type to rechargeable not alkaline .
You may try alkaline batteries, if it does the same, the camera may need repair.

Some cameras will not set the battery type automatically.

Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin
