    I am having the same problem. It was working fine until July when I last used it. But when I turned on the camera recently, it would not start. I changed the battery. Made sure that batteries were in correctly, but still it would not start.

I inserted and charged a brand new $25 battery and the camera will not stay on. It turns on but immediately turns itself off.

Hello Carol, It sounds like your camera doesn't want to wake up. LOL try to take a picture right away. The disk may be full.
Another option is to make sure the battery is in it correctly and that it's the same brand as your camera.
And your next best thing is to take it to radio shack, they might be able to do something for you. God Bless you. -Lena

Battery won't hold a charge in camera, but batteries are new

Hello Sonja, Try a firmware update for the CX7430 available at Kodak website listed under SUPPORT, be sure to get the firmware download for your model camera ONLY !!!!! If this does not help, some of these batteries that come from China are very low quality and have had them discharge sitting on the shelf !!!! Try Duracell or Other name brand battery, watch out for some sold on E-Bay as many are very low quality.
Best Regards, Russell

Put in new battery and it won't turn on

Hello, Hard to tell with info given, Try new battery to determine if it is battery related or a camera failure, Batteries are cheaper than camera repairs.

Kodak c340 won't turn on

Hello Carol, Are these batteries new and name brand ? It sure sounds like low battery power, Those cheap batteries found in some stores do not have the energy to boot a camera even when new out of the package. The camera has a very high demand to start up. I own several cameras that will not turn on with brand new cheap batteries.
Best Regards, Russell

Canon PowerShot A3100 IS won't turn on

Make sure the battery is installed correctly.Try opening, then closing the cover to the memory card and battery compartment while holding pressure against it until you hear it click closed. Then try to power it up. The camera will not power up if the cover is not properly closed.

I have a Finepix xp50, with a fully charged, correctly installed battery, that won't turn on. It worked intermittantly for awhile. We have 3 batteries for this camera thinking it was the battery

Be sure your battery is in the right way. Try reversing it. My battery has 3 rounded corners and one square corner. The square corner goes against the latch.

My Nikon coolpix l20 wont turn on and the batteries are fine. What do i do?

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Cannon Speedlite 270EX doesn't turn on and I put new batteries in

Try cleaning out the contacts where the batteries touch. Make sure the battery door is completely flush with the body and see if you've inserted everything correctly. The type of battery you use also effects the flash recycle time and how it operates too. Have you tried using different types of batteries? Try using NI-MH instead of Alkaline and see if the speedlite will power. There's a test button on the flash and also an off-on switch you can try toggling around. The flash itself is very simple so if it still won't power on after all of that, you should contact customer support.
