    I have the same problem

  • kjdpoet531 Dec 10, 2008

    I cannot get the camera to turn on. It whirrs and a couple of lights flicker and then it goes blank. the lens does not open and nothing else happens. It used to work fine (for a friend who gave it to me when it malfunctioned for her.) Is this fixable?

    My camera is 3.5 years old.
    Ten days ago, this started occuring with it.
    The first time, I replaced the relatively new non-rechargeable batteries with new. On the third try after their replacement, the Camera's lens extended and I was able to take pictures.

    Three times since the first, this has reoccurred. As another stated, it whirrs, both the green light [on top] and the red light [by eye lens] flickers, it also plays its start up tune and finally it goes blank.

    Today, it will not start after many tries.

I had this problem, too, and what worked for me was blowing compressed air into the battery compartment. It seems there was some small speck of dust that was preventing the batteries from making full connection. It works beautifully now.

Please try and format you internal memory. i had the exact same problem and camera and that is how I fixed it. I am not using the internal memory again from now on. Before you forma bye the way remove the SD card. After the internal memory is formated you can insert the card and format the card too just in case. Backup you pictures in both first of course if you want them

My problem is now fixed! I put in a fresh set of recently purchased non-rechargeable batteries into the camera.

I was out-of-state visiting my Dad and taking many photos of his things. I ended up replacing my batteries with some he had around the house just prior to the first instance of camera's problem.
[I do not know the age of Dad's batteries!]

I went to Kodak's website [link]

On this page is a heading "Troubleshoot And Repair," and I followed the link - Step-by-Step Solutions & Repair .

I Have olympus fe230 7.1 mp digicam it does not have a power even i bought a new battery pack.

You say you bought a new battery pack but have you actually checked it with a meter to make sure it has sufficient power?
I picked up an fe-230 used that had no batteries and bought a set of 2 batteries and a charger off ebay. According to the light on the charger the batteries are charged and ready. Only they aren't according to my meter. The el cheapo fleabay charger is no good.
So assume nothing and check your battery with a meter and go from there.

Wont turn on

Are you sure that your batteries were fully charged? I have the same issue when using shop bought aa batteries - or they don't last very long at all.

That 3 beeps and turning off is what should happen along with a "battery low" error message on the screen from experience.

When I bought the recommended charger and two batteries from Amazon - they lasted a lot longer. Search the website for the charger battery code suggested in the instructions.
