The type of batteries that you use will make a difference. You didn't specify what type of batteries that you've been using. If you haven't been using lithium batteries, I would try some of those. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones. Usually in a blue package. They're a little more expensive than the regular alkaline ones, but they're better for digital devices and they'll last a lot longer.

Read the Manual-

I can't answer all your questions but there is such a thing as a slave flash. Although these may connect to other flashes with a cable, more often than not they have a light sensor that picks up the first flash and within a few microseconds will initiate their own flash.

Take a look at this discussion of shutter lifepsan. http://www.dphoto.us/forum/archive/index.php/t- 4531.html To summarize these posts, average number of cycles (one instance of open and close shutter) is somewhere between 50,000 and 150,000 cylcles. As one poster pointed out, we seem to take more pictures with digital than with film cameras, so a hundred thousand cylces might not be that many. I have a c2500L bought used at online auction and have probably taken about 1500 pics so far. Don't know how much previous owner used it. It's amazing how many pictures you take when you don't need to spend money on film and processing! The c2500L is a really nice camera and I hope that mine lasts many years. My c2500L is an early one with version 1.0 firmware (later models have version 1.20 sticker on side) and was built in about 1999 I think. As for autofocus, mine works great as long as I have the focus mode (regular, macro, super macro) and zoom level set correctly for my distance to subject. Fortunately, the green focus indicator lamp near viewfinder flashes when focus isn't right. A few other thoughts on focus: taking picture through glass, in mirror, or scene with no contrast (like a solid grey sky) might require you to use the manual focus or focus lock modes. Window glass fools camera, which tries to focus on glass instead of your desired subject. For mirror, you need to double the normal focus distance (measure distance from camera to mirror, focus on something twice as far, then lock focus and take your pic in mirror). With SLR film camera, mirrors and glass don't cause trouble because you are focusing manually. One other note on fuzzy or dark corners on pictures: if you use filters, especially a thick filter like a polarizer, you should probably get a 43mm to 46mm adapter and use bigger filter. At widest angle zoom, my polarizer causes vignetting in corners because the filter actually is "seen" by lens in corner of pics. Oops, I should have thought of that before buying filters I guess. Hope this helps some.

The simple answer you will not find any parts available for digi cameras- because there are none- the makers don't work that way in the main. If the camera is Young[ish] the Tech Support team may offer to replace the camera or charge a modest fee for a swap out. But finding spares - Nah!

Try using a good program like Photoshop and when you adjust for printing...make sure you DO NOT subsample the image so it can fit on a 4x6 photo paper page. What I mean by that, is in fact reduce the image to fit on such a small page but do not kill the resolution.... In Photoshop, you would open up Image Size under the Image menu and turn uncheck resample image...as you adjust for paper size...you will notice that your resolution stays intact on the top of the window. I assume that is your problem since the 2500 is highres and should give you fantastic results in a 4x6 format.....

Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.

Make sure your rechargeable batteries are all good. One defect in a set is killing for the whole set
Don't use barrettes from different sets or brands together.
I had one brand good NiMH batteries and a very expensive charger from the same brand. The charger destroyed all my rechargeable (more than 60 now). When I first discovered the batteries were dropping out, I stopped using the charger, but it did not prevent all batteries to die in the following months. Every time on dropped out I had to change the set. I tried using up the others by grouping the ones with the same Ri, but not longer then a few months and I had a box full to trow away.
Never use a quick charger, capable of charging them within an hour or faster. Us a charger that indicates the Ri is still low enough, so you can see what batteries are bad.
Check you are using a charger for NiMH batteries.
I would try another set (new) because buying Alkaline is also not cheap.
I used 2700 mAh and later 2600 mAh rechargeable, all dead now. since a few weeks I'm now using 2300 mHh from another brand, costing 1/5 of the "best" I had before, and they are doing great. I won't charge them with the quick charger.

Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.

This 14 year old camera, does not have a zoom lens. It has a 5,5 mm lens, giving it a angle of view of about a 35 mm lens of a Full frame camera. However, you should be able to zoom digital 2 times.
I can't find a manual, to help you on this, but the quality will be the same as cropping into a frame on your computer. So if you do put the pictures on a computer, you also can "zoom" in to the parts you want. Be aware a 1 megapixel camera, does not offer that much of detail.
