Default DX4900 Battery issue

Hi folks,

One of my friends gave me their Kodak camera to see if I could figure out why it turns itself off after taking only 10 photos !

The battereies are Kodak 1850mAh NiMH AA's and are charged in their Kodak K4000 charger which automatically turns itself off after a few hours of charging.

I tested the camera myself and true to form I managed only 10-12 photos using the flash / LCD screen on before the low battery light appeared.

Had anyone else had this problem / is it a known fault ?

Many thanks for any info on this.

I have a dx4900. i bought energizer 1850 batteries with a charger. I am able to get atleast 40+ pictures with the lcd on. The batteries might be possibly faulty or not being charged fully. To test this see if you can borrow a set of batteries off someone and see how long or how many pictures you can take

there is also a setting i copy paste from manual
Selecting a Power Save Setting
The Power Save feature is designed to balance battery consumption with
camera performance. See page 78 for how the settings affect camera
1 Turn the Mode dial to Setup .
2 Highlight the Power Save menu , then press Select.
3 Highlight the Power Save setting you want to
OFFócamera performance has priority
over battery consumption. Ideal when
battery life is not a primary concern.
STANDARD (default)óbattery
consumption and camera performance are
optimized equally. Ideal for everyday
ONóbattery life has priority over camera
performance. Ideal when you have only one
battery or one set of batteries available.
4 Press Select.
This setting remains until you change it.
