Question about Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera
Put camera on charge which lasts about 5 seconds in the time it comes up with lens error I have not dropped camera so this is a mystery.The 5 seconds charge is when plugger into electrical socket .When plugged into computer the is no charge at all. please help.
SORRY TO SAY, BUT I AM READING HORROR STORIES ABOUT THIS MODEL OF CAMERA AND IT'S CHARGING OR LACK OF CHARGING SYSTEM. IT SEEMS IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE M853 AND ABOUT THE ONLY SOLUTION PEOPLE ARE FINDING IS USING A SEPARATE CHARGING BAY. IT SEEMS THAT VISTA HAS A POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ON USB PORTS THAT TURNS OFF THE POWER ON UN-USED USB PORTS AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NOT CHARGING. YOU NEED TO GO INTO THE USB PORT SETTINGS AND RIGHT CLICK THEM AND DISABLE THE SETTING THAT ALLOWS THEM TO SHUT DOWN POWER TO THE USB PORTS. IT ALSO SEEMS THAT THERE IS A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH THE MAIN BATTERIES IN THE M853 FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME YOU TRY TO CHARGE THEM. THEY SEEM TO NOT WANT TO TAKE A CHARGE. I KNOW ALL THIS IS BAD NEWS BUT GO TO GOOGLE AND PUT KODAK EASYSHARE M853, NOT CHARGING AND READING THE STORIES FOR YOURSELVES. THEY ARE NOT PRETTY. BEST ADVICE I CAN OFFER IT SEEMS IS SEPARATE CHARGING STATION AND DEDICATED USB PORT YOU KNOW IS HOT. GOOD LUCK ON THIS ONE. IF THE CAMERA IS FAIRLY NEW, I WOULD CONSIDER RETURNING IT! THIS ONE HAS A REALLY BAD TRACK RECORD. IF I CAN HELP MORE, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
