Question about Kodak EasyShare CX4300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No power My camera will not even power up. I bought a new battery and charged it but still no power. I took the camera apart and the only thing I saw out of the ordinary is a tiny (and I mean tiny) black plastic piece that was running loose inside. I can't figure out where it goes but I'm hoping that it may be the key to my problem.

Re: No power

I can't get my camera to power up. I've bought batteries after batteries. Is it just history or can it be fixed. Cindyo

This is common with some units if they are left a long time in a bag or not used sometimes the camera goes bad. I had this happen to a Nikon. Had to replace camera. Cheaper that way. Now it could be you did not install battery correctly, or the switch needs cleaning. I took one apart once an cleaned with contact cleaner an it worked fine. Which Panasonic is it?

Fuji finepix v10 digital camera No.63A01601

It seems to me the most obvious thing to look at would be the power switch. I don't think impact would damage the battery unless it cracked or punctured it - and I assume it hasn't since you haven't mentioned that.

Have you checked the switch itself for any damage, and made sure it's making contact when it's switched, and traced the leads from the switch back to the board - or even all the way to the battery? I think you'll find your problem somewhere in there.

The smaller battery should be for storing long term memory - i.e. any configurable settings. Even if that was dead, the camera would still turn on, it just wouldn't remember any settings.

I bought a sanyo e15005tp and i charged it once and then used up the battery once i saw the battery was almost dead i tried charging it but the camera turned off with the lense still out now it wont...

Well, for starters, the camera can be defected, because you said that when you charged the battery, it said it was on low, correct? So you should probably send it to the manufacturer, Sanyo, and they might give you a new Sanyo camera, since you got it defected. BUT first, you should call, and ask for more reference. Secondly, just see cheap deals on eBay, & Amazon, so buy a new battery. If you find that you DID charge it, than the Camera itself is defected. But their is also a chance that your area you charged it in IS either too hot or too cold, causing the battery pack to take longer, and lose the battery itself. Hope this info. helps!

Even with new batteries can not power unit up and the lens is open

I have the same problem took a picture then camera went off with lens still open, thought it was the battery so bought a new battery but still will not work, its as though the camera is dead. Is it possible to get it repaired or should I just buy another camera. Does anyone know what type of camera to buy that does the same things as the Kodak Easyshare C643 Digital camera.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries

you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

Showing battery low

hi anjali,
i think the problem must be with the replacement of the CCD chip. they must have must some damage to the cam with out their knowledge. but the thing is you cant even claim that with Sony. you must have took it right next day.
that too if you are in india you cant expect the service people to get these things fixed so soon. you must have been attentive.

Battery low all the time

Try Eneloop batteries from Sanyo. They have the higher voltage needed. AND that voltage doesn't sag under the initial startup load.

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on

SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

Charging flash

Mine does the same thing...Charging Flash!  I called HP's Customer service, and after 20 minutes of a woman, who could barely speak English, asking me for all my personal information, she told me there would be a charge of $34.99 just to get over the phone tech support!
I am told that we need New cameras, and trust me I will never by anything HP again!
