I've used Powerex 2700 mAH NiMH AA rechargeables for the last 2 years and they've always worked great on this camera. Lately, it seems like no matter what I do, the camera flashes the red battery low after only about 5 minutes of use.
I've recharged the batteries and tried different batteries fresh off the charger and keep having the same problem. I checked the batteries with a volt meter and they all show 1.3+ volts which is good for NiMH rechargeables. I tried removing the batteries and the lithium watch battery for 1 minute, putting 'em back in, and formatting the memory card, and still no luck.
The camera just suddenly started doing this recently. Has anyone had this problem before? Is there a solution?
