The camera does not come on

I did take afew photo's while on assignment in an area where the temperatures were around 34 degrees celcius. After I kept the camera in its pouch and needed to use it again, it would not come on. At first I thought the battery was down, but even after charging, the camera would not show anything, is there any remedy or should I toss off the thing?

I believe you have fixed the problem. But this may help other people. I had the same problem and I still have. I solve it by removing the battery and replacing again!

The positions are close, but they do appear to be in different units. 52 degrees 34 minutes 9 seconds is 52.569167 degrees, and 2 degrees 9 minutes 5 seconds is 2.318056 degrees.

My Kodak ZD710 Will only let me take about 11 pics and the batteries go dead, I have used the CRV3 battery pack

Welcome to FixYa.

Kodak lithium digital camera battery CRV3 (non-rechargable) approximately can take pictures up to 500 pictures. However, actual life may vary based on the usage.

How to extend your battery life?

1. Use power saving features (using a power saving modes). Limit activites such as reviewing pictures/videos on the LCD.
2. Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with clean,dry cloth before loading the battery in the camera.
3. Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41 F(5 degree celcius). When using your camera in cold weather, keep spare batteries warm. Do not discard cold batteries; when they return to room temperature, they may be usable.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get...

The Stylus Tough-3000 can be submerged up to 10 feet underwater and incorporates four preset underwater scene modes as well as the ability to capture HD movies underwater. It can also withstand a five-foot drop and can still perform when the temperature dips well below freezing (14 degrees Fahrenheit; -10 degrees Celsius)
1. Remove the SIM card , battery, and ensure that your camera is dry 2. reinstall the sim, battery, and if the battery has not been charged or is known to be used, please replace for a new one. 3. Start up your Camera and attempt to take a photo now without using any of the video features. If your still not registering your photos, return for continued assistance.

My memory card wont delete old files i have already downloaded to my computer? i cant see them on my camera but if i go to a photo print machine they will show up!?!?! I use to be able to hold like 2000...

you need to format the memory card.

the easiest would be to use the camera to do this.

Refer to the owners manual.

the other option is use use some sort of card reader on your computer, right click the drive letter that your computer assigns it and click format"

make sure you are selecting the correct drive, all data is lost with a format !

Monitor and viewfinder flicker

I don't have a solution, but do have the same problem. Mine is cleared by switching the camera off and back on again. Also the problem doesn't appear for long, clearing itself, on some ocassions. The problem stated when I was in a hotter climate, about 35degree celcius. I bought my camera about 3 months after release, I'd be interested to know the age of yours and if this is a common problem. Have you had your camera fixed?

Faulty Memory Stick

See if you can download the photos through the USB cable. Then try reformatting it in the camera. Otherwise, I probably would get rid of it. Memory is cheap enough, and it's not worth the risk to keep around an unreliable memory card.
