Question about Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital Camera
I bought this camera in the begining of 2006. I just recently went to turn the camera on and it shuts right off. Battery IS fully charged.
Yep.. This does appear to be a Kodak problem. I have a V550.. I know its not the battery because we charged it fully and as shown on the charger.. The camera has a SWITCH on the side that turns on the camera and screen and is able to go to review mode without the shutter lens open. unless it possibly needed more current to keep the shutter/lens mechanism open, then could be the batteries... anybody try a new battery yet?
otherwise, ill just ditch this and go with a canon or nikon..

I contacted the Kodak repair centre in Australia, they recommended I return the camera for repair. A week later I received an email stating they couldn't repair it and were willing to exchange for a different model. The new camera arrived and has been working fine, but I feel the quality of Kodak digital cameras are lacking compared to other brands. I wouldn't buy a Kodak again.

Forget Kodak - their support service sucks, especially in Canada. I had the same problem as above, and the repair centre can't even get the parts. Kodak Canada is impossible to reach and their web site is not kept up to date with some links not working. In the past, they do not respond to inquiries. I'm never, ever, going to buy another Kodak product.

Sounds like a new battery would do wonders. I would contact Kodak and see if hey will offer you a new battery. If not then I would go buy one. The battery is probably the most likely to go bad so fast on a camera.
