Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?
Battery empty message
\015 My camera shows a battery empty message even though i have batteries in the camera\015
Put brand new batteries in. The battery empty message means there is no "juice" or power left in the batteries. If they are recharagable batteries, "re-juice" them (charge them).

First, I am a 1st class amateur, so jargon is ?Greek? to me. However, I am studying the manual dilligently. My question concerns the batteries. I am using Panasonic Heavy Duty AA?s. I am always very quickly getting the message ?Battery empty.?, even when I have just changed batteries.

Not connected to a computer. MF is not on

If I use only the viewfinder, I may get a couple more shots. It looks like an electrical problem but what should I do?
