It sounds like your camera is damaged in some way, have you dropped it? Try taking it back to the store you bought it from because sometimes there is an expert onsite that can help, or give you a refund. Good luck.

My camera does the same with alkaline batteries but works fine with NiMH rechargeables. Don't use Nickel Cadmium. Use NiMH.
