What kind of batteries did you buy of ebay that posed such a problem?
As I recall the Epson one has 1600mAh capacity. I have two 1800mAh no-brand ones that I bought of Ebay two years ago that work fine.
Two extra 1300mAh ones came with the camera when I bought it back in 2009. These batteries really aren't up to the task.
