Remove the batteries if you do not expect to use the camera for about three weeks or longer.

Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for recharging Ni-Cd batteries.
Three bars ( - ) may not appear on the display panel during the battery check, even if using fully charged Ni-Cd batteries, because of their low nominal voltage.
The battery naturally discharges even when not in use, so try to check the batteries regularly.
