Fisher price kid tough camera momentarily turns on then shuts off

My son used his camera for one afternoon after getting it for christmas. It worked fine for the first couple of hundred pictures, but later that day when he turned it on it would power up for a brief second then shut off by itself. It has brand new batteries and has not been abused.

    We have the same problem. We have found that it will sometimes stay on after a number of repeated attempts (7-10.)

    We find that it will act like it's going to boot up, ie the fisher price screen comes on then it freezes and won't go any further. We also had it boot up and then turn off like the batteries were dead, which they were brand new.

    Having the same problem. Sometimes it will turn back on after trying many times in succession. Has anyone gotten through to Fisher Price?

    I am having the same problem with my sons camera. He used it for less than a day with brand new batteries. Now it acts like it turns on then shuts off. Has anyone contacted Fisher Price?

    Same situation here, tried replacing the batteries and the camera both. Any help would be appreciated.

    Same issue - camera powers up briefly, then immediately turns off. Brand new batteries. No abuse to the camera. It is very disappointing. I plan to contact Fisher Price after learning so many others are having the same issue.

I had this problem too. Simply transfering the pictures to my computer and deleting them from the Camera solved it. This seems to be the default behavior when the camera is full.

Hi Everyone,
The Camera needs to be re-formatted using your computer & the USB cord that came with it I went to fisherprice. website .... this link:
http://service.mattel.com/us/product_detail.asp?id=M8072&Ntt=M8072&Pn=1&Brand=Fisher-Price+Technical+Products&Cat=Other+Fisher-Price+Technical+Products
It has product model # & contact number for service tech. Call the service number & a tech will help you The Tech guided me through the 4 or 5 EASY steps & stayed on the phone with me while I did it. Its very easy as he will tell you the dialog boxes you should see etc. TIP: make sure your computer is up & ready when you call & have camera plugged in.

We had this happen today with a brand new camera, I called Fisher Price and they said they had a batch of cameras that short out, which is causing the problem. They offered for us to send the camera to them, and they will mail us a new one.

Hi my son has a fisher price digital camera he has lost the battery holder that fits inside is it possible to get a replacement


That is a good question, Fisher Price is well known for good customer support, I would check www.fisherprice.com for customer support and ask for parts (if they have it) the other option is go to a Fisher Price store to see if they can order the part for you.

Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera - freezes on logo


This is a solution for getting a working camera, not really to get your camera working. I phoned Fisher Price and was told to format the camera. Turn camera off, plug into USB, right click on the camera drive in my computer and choose format. When this didn't work for me, they sent me a mailing label to send the camera back so they could send me a new one. The formatting is worth a try, and at least you get a new camera when it doesn't work.

The camera has to plugged into a usb 1.1 port, it will not work with a usb 2.0 port. Try using the additional usb ports on a monitor or keyboard. Otherwise you will need to use a usb 1.1 Hub.

Kid tough camera shuts down after using the flash


This may seem simplistic, but have you tried replacing the batteries first? It really quickly drains batteries and what you are describing sounds consistent with low batteries.

No software disc for kid tough L8341


Upon doing a little research, I have found that the software that comes with this camera is available for download from the following location:
http://www.softsea.com/review/PhotoShow-Deluxe.html

The software is named Photo Show Deluxe, and that link should have the link to download the software for you.
Hope your daughter enjoys her software!
