ZX-10 Battery Exhausted?

I was using a zx-10 normally a few weeks ago when suddenly the lcd screen flashed the battery indicator. I googled the meaning of it and it said battery exhaustion warning. So I bought a new pair of batteries and it just arrived today. But when I tried again the same thing happened. It doesn't even allow me to take a picture in MF mode. What should I do? Thanks a lot in advance

Do you have the right battery? My Z20 takes a single CR2 Lithium pack.

Make sure the battery contacts are not only clean, but also making good physical contact. You may need to bend it ever so slightly to ensure good contact.
Hope this helps!
