Hi,

First, because an insolating film can build up on the contacts, just from the reaction with the atmosphere while the camera is sitting idle, to make sure that poor contact is not causing the issue, since you are positive that the batteries start out good. Remove them from the camera and clean the metal battery contacts inside of the battery compartment and on the battery with a q-tip and alcohol. The connection is very critical and a very small amount of residue or dust can inhibit the power transfer. Also, check how well the battery door shuts and if necessary adjust the metal contacts by gently prying them with a small screw driver to increase the tension. In addition, leave the memory card out of the camera when you first try to power it up.

It is also a known issue with most digital cameras using AA size batteries that they tend to require a little more power due to the lens barrel movement (powering the motor takes all of the energy). The manufacturers alwas recommend at lease Alkaline tyoe batteries since digital cameras with moving lenses are not low power devices. That is why the connection is so critical The only other suggestion that I have is to try a set of high power lithium AA batteries. They have a higher power output. This has solved this issue about 55% of the time.

Please keep in mind that my diagnosis & solutions provided are directly dependent on the accuracy of your description of the problem. As with any "do it yourself" fixes, success is a "team effort", since I can't see or touch the camera, and relies on the customer's manual dexterity and ability to follow the instructions well.
