Re: camera won't turn on

What sort of batteries are you using ? Alkaline do not have the oomph to run a camera They need to be Ni-Cad or Ni-Mah Check out the Tech Support Web Site at Kodak

Polaroid camera will not turn on

If it is a new camera, it is strange it switches off so quick. On the other hand, alkaline batteries are not the best choice.
You better use NiMH rechargeable, because they can keep up a high voltage longer. Always us batteries from the same batch. Never mix batteries from different sort, like NiMH and alkaline.
NEVER Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They should be in a flash light. They don't have enough capacity and can leak easy.
Always check the contacts on the batteries are clean and shiny. (Also the contacts in the camera. You can clean contacts with a dry cloth or cotton swabs.

If it is a brand new camera, and it won't work as expected, bring it back to the shop.

Cant take more than 2 pictures because it says the batteries are too low, while new batteries are in. What can i do?

Just a hunch - your camera's in-built capacitor is malfunctioning. You need to send your camera to service.

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off

That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

My Vivitar Vivicam 5399 is refusing to turn on. It has worked perfectly up until a couple of weeks ago, when it started to turn off at random moments, usually soon after I had turned it on. Now, it doesn't...

Have you tried to see if the battery door is completely shut? This is usually the problem with many digital cameras with batteries. Clean the battery door and where the battery touches the metal of the door. Check to see if the door is completely flush with the camera body when you close it. I know for a fact that Vivitar cameras **** the juice out of batteries fairly quickly also. If you have the USB-cord provided with the camera, plug it into your computer and see if that holds a charge to your camera. If all else fails, call up Vivitar for further inquiry, your battery may be dead.
Good luck!

Try using a different type of battery (not meaning *brand). Many newer digital cameras will only operate properly with high alkaline batteries vs other types. I was having the same problem with my Sony cyber-shot and found out that I had been using the wrong KIND of batteries all along. Hope this post was helpful to you.

Olympus camera: battery empty

OK, here's the answer. You won't find it anywhere else, but here it is.

If you use rechargable batteries, you MUST use ones with a respectable capacity. 2000mah are probably not enough. You need 2400mah at least. Yes, it doesn't make much sense, in the the battery capacity is supposed to reflect how long they'll last. But the wimpy batteries just won't let this camera turn on.

I have some experience with different battery capacity in this camera, and it took some aggravation to figure this out. But I'm pretty sure this is the answer.

The higher capacity batteries are more expensive, and their hold time is probably not as good. But I get a reasonable amount of usage with them.

Kodak easy share c875

When you say you've tried every different kind of battery, did that include Lithium batts?

Lithiums are the only battery that ALL Kodak cameras seem to be happy to run on.

They have huge problems with alkaline batts, even brand new ones.

Hope this helps.
