Hi, I hope this is the right forum to post this question. I recently came into possession of a non-working Yashica T4Zoom p&S. The problem with the camera is that when a battery is loaded into it, the "empty battery" sign (the outline of a battery) on the lcd blinks continuously and the camera does not turn on when the power button is pressed. I am sure the batteries I tried are good since I tested them with a voltmeter (CR123=3+volts). I did a little digging around the internet and found that this is not an isolated problem and many people have been asking around for a solution to this problem. So far there doesn't seem to be any solution or even any information as to what is causing this. So, now I come to the photo.net community for help. I hope someone out there has an idea as to what is causing this and if there is anything that can be done to fix it. Thank you. Your help is much appreciated.
