Re: Camera won't come on.
The best way to have battery tested is going to a camera shop with
repair facility with camera and power adapter, possibly when the
repairman is in, and asking, "battery is gone on my camera, I am not
sure if have to buy battery or power adapter", have them both quickly
tested, and buy the faulty replacement part.

I had the same problem! But I turned it off, stuck a paper clip in the little hole inside the hole at the bottom for 10 seconds, then i held the power button for 5 seconds till it turned on and it works just fine now :)
I had this problem. It turned out to the sd card was causing a problem. I took the card out and hit the reset. The turned it back on and it it working great. I ended up copying all the images off the card onto my computer then put the card in the camera and reformatted it. The copied all my images back on to the computer and it is working fine. Hope this helps.
who bought this Kodak camera had the same problem!!!! i bought it.. then couple of months past..and would not turn on! I tried everything!! with my phone\'s charger it finally charged ..i let it charged for 3 hours then it still wouldn\'t turn on! :(
This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician. My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.
mine is an everio gz-mg37u and i get that same bulls*** on the screen at every power up. First I tried waiting a while then switching all the switches between camera and video mode, record and watch mode, etc. and one time it worked and the message went away. Haven't been able to do that since.
Now what I do is turn it on, wrap it in a blanket, leave it about 10 minutes, then turn the power off and on again. Works fine for me, and if I turn it off and then turn it back on within a few minutes before it cools down, it works fine. There has to be a messed up sensor in this thing that I can desolder somewhere......
hi, it is in the monitor, not the camera, a component is getting weak, generally it is in the marix driving circuit. not much you can do but to have that part replaced...my suggestion, use it til' it dies.... it might never.
Remove the battery for about 30 minutes. This will reset the unit and if it is a software issue it should be OK. You can also try it on the AC adapter in case the battery connector is defective. If reset allows it to work on AC but not battery you have a problem with the DC input connector. If you are good with your hands, have jewelers screwdrivers, magnifying glasses, a steady hand and lots of patience as well as good soldering skills you can remove the cases and repair the input connector. If you are not confident about doing this you will need to seek the help of a reputable repair shop. Hopefully, removing the battery and resetting the unit will solve your problem. Good luck.
