Camera won't come on even with new batteries

Left the camera on the ON cycle and placed in draw. Came back a week later, realized the mistake and camera would not come on. Got new batteries - same problem. Camera is blank and nothing happens on the ON cycle. Help!

The DC-DC converter which distributes the internal voltages within the camera could be at fault. Check to see if any of the pins in the CF card media bay are bent over, if so, this is the cause of the power supply failure. Good Luck Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Won't turn on,even with new battery. Turned on the first time,but 2 weeks later it won't,even charging battery again. Hardly had any use since new, appro 3 years old.


More likely to be a battery issue than the camera.

Do the batteries work in another device? They may have just deteriorated with age or being left uncharged.

Are you sure they are rechargeable batteries?

Try replacing them , even with cheap generic batteries if they are AA/AAA just to verify the camera works.

Double check you have them oriented correctly when putting them in.

Nikon Coolpix won't charge no matter what


The internal battery, which is kept charged by the removable battery, has probably run down. Take it to a repair facility.

I have a new battery.For how long should I charge it?


Overnight for the first charge, then let it run empty.

The biggest mistake most people make is to use the camera for an hour or so, and then plug it back into the charger...Batteries have a memory of sorts, and eventually this habit causes the batt to only last for an hour or 2.

Rechargeables need to be stretched out and used to their full potential, inorder to realize their full potential.

After the first full charge-full discharge cycle, let it charge for 4-8 hours (depending on the type, charger, and manufacturer's specs, of course) and then allow it to sit for a few hours after use (to cool down) before putting it on the charger.

I left the battery more than a week in my camera and now I changed new battery but still not turn on What shall I do? It was working before even I keep battery for long periods.


Your problem may be 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.

Do you think since the camera was plugged in so long that your battery may have died.

Camera batteries drain quickly


Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.

Kodak DX6440 won't power up using batteries


There's a chance that the drop is irrelevant to your problem. You could try using a small eraser to clean the battery contacts down in the chamber (make sure to dump out any eraser particles) and try a new CRV-3 battery, which because of it's slightly longer body produces a little more pressure on the contacts. If that doesn't work to improve things then your cam might need a repair, your call there. Good luck
