Make sure to try a set of good quality batteries. I had the same problem with 6 sets of batteries. I thought my camera was broken. I was using generic alkaline batteries. They checked okay voltage wise but they didn't have the milliamps necessary to drive the camera. I switched to a good name brand and the camera works like a new one.

The camera doesn't open and it doesn't charge. It is dead.


I wonder if you attached the right voltage of charger.
Thats what I did. I put on a 9v dc charger
Now my v570 is dead......but ironically it will still charge a battery.
Now an expensive battery charger!

Low Battery Light Even with Brand New Lithium Batteries


If indeed the batteries are brand new and without a doubt charged,
then you definitely have a hardware problem in the camera.

You're probably going to have to give it in to be serviced.

Hope I helped!

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries


you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

With new batteries already put in--no power


Are you using rechargeable batteries, and have tried lots of different batteries? Also, sometimes rechargeable batteries fresh out of the package can be dead or have very little juice. Just a thought...Hard to say that's it though if you were having the same thing happen before...

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on


SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

Camera acting weird: turns off a second after turning on...


Hi, I also have one of these cameras which behaved very similarly. The fault cleared when I replaced my rechargeable batteries for new ones or when using new good qaulity branded batteries. When my rechargeable batteries became tired the output was not sufficient enough to fully open the lens. I hope this helps and your
