    I have tried changing out the batteries but to no avail. It let's me take maybe one picture then bam, it goes off. Sometimes it won't even let me do that.

    When I turn the camera on the LCD comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off, then the blue led on the top blinks three times as dose the green led on the back right above the LCD. Then it seems to just shut down and nothing will work.The camera was working fine, I thought the bats might be low so I put new ones in and it doses the same thing.

    I have the same problem. Camera turns on and maybe you can take 1 or 2 pics then it shuts off. Other times it may stay on until you turn it off. Does this with new batteries or old ones. There doesn't seem to be any pattern???

    Same problem- turn it on it turns off even with newly charged Energizer 2500 mAh. This problem appeared about a year into its use.

    The Kodak solution is a ripoff to get you to buy a new camera. No more Kodak cameras for me. I hope they read this!

    Same thing... Even have the CRV3 batteries... had it come on once and stay on, so I flashed it to the new 1.02 firmware, which everyone CLAIMS fixes this error on Kodak's part... Still get the Kodak logo for half a second, followed by blinking blue and green leds, then dead... power off, power on, same thing.... nothing changes... So, to mads_aye, CRV3 is NOT the main answer, cause it isn't working here...

    Same problem. I AM using the Kodak Li IoN battery, replaced for $30.

Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.

Had same problem - turning off constantly. Camera had been great for 14 mos. My rechargables died and I could not find the charger. Put regular batteries in it (knew they would not last long - just buy me some time to locate charger...) That's when the problems started and continued to get worse. Finally bought new charger with rechargeable NI-MH 2500mAh batteries. package swore they were for digital cameras...charged them, put them in - same problem. Recharged my old Kodak brand batteries in the new charger and now (FINALLY) the camera appears to be working fine. If you have the shut off problem - go get a new KODAK charger and camera batteries - no substitutes!

Be more particular with the component
please use lithium for consistent perforance
at the bottom of your camera, engraved at the battery door
CRV3 (lithium) is at the top of the list
it's the no. 1 recommended battery for kodak cameras with ccd image sensor
performance of the cam with alkaline is unpredictable - it may turn and and shut back off, if you're lucky you can take a picture or 2 or 10

Are you all using Lithium batteries?

ALL Kodak cameras have major issues with alkaline batteries, even brand new ones.

Hope this helps.

As someone on this site suggested, I bought Energizer 2500mAh rechargeables. I used the camera on a snowmobile trip where temps where around 5 degrees for highs, carried it in my front coat pocket against the wind and it worked perfectly evertime I used it throughout the week. I would have the camera on for up to 10 minutes at a time and took as many as 10 - 20 pics with no problems. The only problem was when I tried to take video at the end of the day, it did shut off one time. Still, much better results that ever before. Also, I have not downloaded the software revision. Hope this helps.

Are you using Ni-MH batteries? Most other batteries including Ni-Cad just dont have the punch that the Ni-MH has amperage wise. You could try Lithium batteries, but many devices are explicit on the battery type.

SOURCE: camera turns itself off while i am using movie mode

I dont think that alkaline batteries will help....

Batteries like duracell will be too costly and they will not last too long.

Go for NI MH batteries....Of rating 2500 or 2700 mamp.
They will last much longer and are rechargable too...

Camera shuts itself off


What is the age of the camera and how well used are the batteries? are you recording from battery or from power cable? The only things you can do are make sure the battery and power is good and make sure the recording media is good. With that in mind if the camera is older than 5 years, they have a battery inside the case that you cannot change. This battery keeps the date and time in memory and when it looses charge, the camera has to be sent in for repairs.

My camera keeps turning itself off and the amber light keeps flashing


Please check whether the battery is fully charged.
Please try using a different battery.
If the issue still persists after changing the battery try Power Resetting the Camera which should resolve the issue.
To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera.
Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera.
Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.
