Question about Fisher-Price Kid Tough Digital Camera

Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Camera won't stay on

This camera was purchased less than 1 month ago.  The first time we turned it on, it only took about 15 minutes for it to show problems.  It turns off almost immediately after turning it on.  We ca barely take one photo before it shuts off.  If we turn it on 5 or 6 times in a row, sometimes it will stay on long enough to use it for 10 or so minutes.  I changed the batteries, which seemed to solve the problem, for 5 minutes.  Then it started doing the same thing.  We don't know where it was purchased as it was a gift.  What can we do?

    I have the same problem - pink Kid Tough camera won't hold the battery charge. I don't know how many new batteries we have gone through but not anymore. Going to return it and just give my daughter an old digital camera that we have. She won't be so frustrated and neither will we!!

    We have the same problem, camera switches itself off after taking a photo. We've tried disposable batteries and rechargeables.



    In the end complained to Mattel/Fisher Price who took it away to examine it but have found no fault.



    It would appear to be jus an overly power hungry device. Pretty poor really

Had same problem. memory card had a trojan virus on it. I formatted the card in windows, made sure my batteries were good and turned it on. This didn't solve the problem. The next time I turned it on, I pressed the button on the front, before it powered off and it stayed on! Give it a try!

Digital cameras have always "eaten" batteries. tho there may be an internal defect in the camera i would suggest purchasing a good set of rechargale batteries and charger for them.

SOURCE: Frozen screen

Same happened to me; turned out to be a corrupted filesystem on the camera. Solution was a bit mad - I've got linux on my PC so I used 'dd' to write zeros to the entire device ("dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb" in my case; check /proc/partitions to find what the camera has come up as). Next time the camera was turned on it sorted itself out. I used photorec first in 'brute force' mode to get the pictures off it/

Why isent the flash working


Replace the batteries in the Kid-Tough camera with 4 new AAA batteries. This step should be performed if the flash is not working or takes a long time to recharge.

My Fisher Price Kid Tough camera locks up and I can't do anything with it.


I noticed this issue as well. I connected the camera to my mac and moved the 100image folder out of the DCIM folder and deleted all the photos-deleting took several steps as the camera had them hidden somewhere and new ones kept appearing with the old names. Once I turned the camera on, it created a new 100IMAGE folder and works normally.

It sounds like your rechargable batteries might be bad.
Try a new set of batteries. It might be a cheap fix.

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.
