Camera immediate shuts off after turning it on

After putting brand new out of the package batteries in and turning my camera on...the green light goes on....the lens goes out and then immediate shuts off and the lens retracts back in. What can I do to fix it? My camera isn't even a year old!

Thanks for any help you can give!

    I have tried various types of batteries and I cannot get it to turn back on.

    My camera was doing the same thing… shutting off when you turned it on and it would stay on for a few minutes, if you warmed it up. I had just replaced the batteries and thought it couldn’t be them, then I realized I had replaced the batteries with a different brand of battery than before. I replaced the new batteries with Energizer batteries or the Panasonic batteries and it works just fine now. Hope this helps...

Try using lithium or nimh rechargeable batteries. I had the same problem and switched out the batteries and put in eveready nimh batteries and it works fine now. Guess the old cheap ones weren't doing the job. And they were brand new batteries.

I put new batteries in and the green light turns on but then it shuts off and deosnt turn back on


Often I have found with modern digital cameras of all brans is that generic batteries no longer have the power to made them run, so even brand new generic batteries will not start the camera.
the solution is you always must buy the expensive brands or invest in a rechargeahle battery system for AA batteries, which mine takes the best. So try that out. I think u will find that money does make a difference

Camera shuts off like dead a dead battery with new ones


Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

Camera wont stay turned on even with new batteries


Ashley, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in today's digital camera. Some brands may have reached their shelf-life in the store, and may have problems just powering startup of the camera right out of the package.

Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. These days many retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many, many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah. Avoid brands that do not list the power rating on the package or batteries.

Camera shuts itself immediately after starting it


Did you try using the coolpix batteries that came along with the camera? check the ratings on coolpix batteries and compare them to the batteries that you are using now.

I turn camera on and it shuts off immediately


I had the exact same problem, it would shut off after trying to turn it on. The door to the memory card has very small tabs on it that push in some kind of sensor inside the camera when you shut the lid. It starts up when I push in the sensor.

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on


SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.
