GE A730 camera cuts off

\015 I've had this camera for a while now and recently i noticed that it does not stay on. When i put it on it works for like two minutes and then it cuts off. Why is that? can anyone help me solve this problem please? i just love this camera and wish not to get rid of it. I cared it like an egg.\015

Answers :

Hi doctech:
\015\012Turn on the camera, then go to the menu and set the time to shut off to 5 or 10 min. These settings are usually set to 2 min. or less. This setting is to let the camera "go to sleep" or simply shut down to save battery power.

You can also try the following:
Go to the set up menu, find the RESET ALL and reset all the settings to factory.
Then go back to the setup menu and set the setting as you want them making sure to set the shut off time to more than 2 min.
