My camera wont come on at all!

Two days ago my camera was working fine. I changed my batteries and tried to cut it on but it would cut right back off. When I pushed the power button it will only come on unless I push the flash button at the same time. I need help.

Less than a year into ownership camera would not turn on and is non-responsive to charging. Never dropped or abused. Replaced battery but still wont turn on or accept charge. i don"t know warranty...

Go here for warranty look up:

If by chance your warranty expired 10 days ago, try reasoning with Kodak about your issue and how the failure occurred 30 days ago and you just now got around to repairing the main unit, not battery. It happens to all of us, I'm sure they'll cut you some slack on the 10 days.

Now if your warranty expired months ago... :(

Sounds to me like a circuitry issue if the camera has not been dropped or been in prolonged contact with moisture. An authorized Olympus camera repair shop is the only option I can offer. You might try resetting it by removing the battery for thirty minutes. Then reinsert the battery and try again. If there is no change, head for the shop or contact Olympus directly through

Camera stopped taking pictures

Same thing happened to me a while ago. I was in a panic. I turned it on and off several change. Finally, I turned the camera to the off position, took the battery out of the camera for about 30 seconds and put it back in again and it worked fine. No problem since.

My kodak c813 digital camera will not turn on

I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time.  For some reason it just stopped working.  I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts.  I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes.  I found this link on FixYa :
I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it.  The batteries were new; just generic.  By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store.  I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life!  I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.

Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.

C-8080 Turns off/on randomly..

Hi Galaxy,

Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.

Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.
