Default Olympus C-700 "battery emtpy" problem

Have had this camera a long time but all of a sudden, it started giving

the "battery empty" message right after I install 4 new batteries. It's

the batteries -- I have tried 4 different NEW packs and same result with
each one. Nothing special happened the day it started -- I had taken

100 photos with no problem, then when the batteries ran out, I put in 4

ones and got 2 photos before "battery empty" message came up. Same ever

Wonder if anyone had this problem come up on this or a similar model?

I've heard numerous accounts of the same exact thing from other
Olympus, Canon, Minolta, Nikon, and Sony digital camera owners. Switch
to the Sigma SD10. This camera gives you the best battery life of any
camera with zero reports of errors to my knowledge. In addition, you
can not beat the image quality of the Foveon sensor.

There are two possibilities. Either it works with the bad battery
indication, or it doesn't. If it works with it, then there are two
possibilities. Either you elect to live with the problem, or you decide to
get it fixed. Your choice.

fast-charged. I get much longer life between charges when I use a slow
