If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.
Hi this is common problem if your sure that these batterys are new and you have used that make and type of battery before than the problem will be on the board of the camera itself. If these batterys are ones you have not used in your camera before then the chances are these batterys are just not powerfull enough so you can by a recharge pack for your camera ok so let me know if its new batterys and if you have used this type before.
Also insted of using the lcd can you turn the screen of then try taking picture using normal view finder as you would on a none digital cam
It could just be that the batterys you brought are faulty and might be worth trying another set before giving up. These camera usuall wont switch on with normal batterys so just try another set or if you have let me know. If the battery says low bat then goes off then these batterys will not work if tryed again but if you can get camera on turn off the screen then try taking picture ok get back to me and let me know ok
Rechargeable or one use type batteries? Could be it was a faulty pack. If recharge type did you give them their first charge for around 24 hours? Always use Alkaline or Lithium Ion single use batteries. If rechargeables always use a high number mah rating; 3.2s will go down quick, 8. (whatever it is) will sustain. If none of these help try Technical Support on the website of your camera's manufacturer.
the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours with the original charger,because the charging volt varies from battery to battery of the same brand and using this universal charger is definitely going to harm ur camera very worse,kindly go for the original charger and charge the battery and then put your camera on........
still if the same,then plz change your battery(lithium ion battery or the battery prescribed for the model,plz note:before changing battery make sure yu buy the battery specified for your cam)
just plug it in with the normal charger, but make sure the battery is as flat as you can let it because over time the battery will become rubbish if its over charged, Lithium Ion batteries can be real pains.
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.
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
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.
