    when i first got the pink one it worked for maybe a week ir so and then i got extremely busy and left it by my bedside. Then when i finally got the chance to use it again, it wouldn't turn on.

    I had the same problem with a previous Kodak camera C713 that I got on sale. I tried new batteries and it appeared to fix the problem but wasn't it. The switch was still flaky on new batteries. Finally I missed too many good pictures because the stupid camera wouldn't turn on with new batteries and took it back.

    They didn't have any more in stock so I spent the extra and got the 10MP Kodak one (the pictures and usability on the easyshare line is exceptional). It worked great about a week and then the zoom motor died on me so I had to take THAT back.

    So I figured "third time's a charm" and got this C813 and what do you know! The power switch is getting flaky on me again! I am so pissed. I was at an Eagles concert with my camera and BRAND NEW FRESH BATTERIES and it just didn't feel like turning on. I had the same thing this afternoon with my dog all dressed up in a santa costume but the camera didn't respond. I came home, took the costume off the dog and suddenly the camera wants to work again.

    The battery contact terminals are very small on these cameras, so I tried working with them, but it's no use. It just intermittently doesn't work. I don't know if it's faulty electronics or what, but this camera is going back and I'm getting another brand. Sorry Kodak, but 3 out of 3 in less than a month is not a good track record!!!

    I've had my CX17(I think it's called that) for 5 years. It's been dropped and never given me any problems.
    I got my C813 about a year ago and its been working great. I went to take a picture today and the battery light came on, the camera shut off, and the lens wouldn't close.
    I've switched batteries over and over, trying everything I can think of, but it still will not turn on and the lens won't finish closing. It stopped halfway down.
    If anyone has any suggestions, please help me. I've had to get out the old 3.2mp easy share, and the picture quality isn't near as good.

Ours does the same thing. If you find an answer please let me know!!!! Ours is new and has done this after the 1st day we got it. I took one of the same back to the store thinking there was something wrong with it. Well, this one does the same thing. I've had the new one for 45 days now.

I had the same problem, sometimes it would turn on and sometimes it wouldn't. I figured out that not all AA size batteries are the same exact size. I was trying dollar store brand AA batteries and that's where the problem was. I switched to some Duracells and now my Kodak works perfectly again. Give it a try before you send it back, it worked for me!

My kodak easyshare c813 camera but it wont turn on

Your problem is likely due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
