    This camera performs beautifully. However, I have recently experienced a problem with powering up the camera. I use disposable AA batteries. When I turn on the power I get a depleted battery symbol even with new batteries. In the past I was able to fiddle with the camera and it would finally come on. Now even that won't work. Any suggestions?

    Hmm, that is strange. Maybe the camera needs to be reset or something. You may be able to find something in your manual (or menu system).

    A lot of Digital Cameras hate disposable batteries, in fact, they can ruin the circuitry. It might be worth looking at getting some rechargables or Lithiums (if supported).
