Question about Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Every time I turn my camera on, it shuts itself off immediantly

I have a kodak M1063 and one day i went to turn it on, the lights came on and it made the sound like it was turning on, but then the screen goes black, the lens goes back in, and it shuts off. The battery is fully charged and running fine. A friend of mine thinks the on/off button could be jammed but i have no clue how to un-jam it! HELP!!

SOURCE: my kodak easy share M1063 turns on then shuts right off how do i

I had the same exact problem. When the camera turns on and then lens extends, hold the lens out while the camera shuts off. Then sort of move it around a bit. I did this and when I turned it on, it was fixed. I guess something was jammed in the lens.

SOURCE: My battery is fully charged, camera goes on and shuts off.

this generally happens if you have dropped it. when the message comes. try tapping the camera. if it works then you are lucky. if not then you have to change the lens array. it costs about 60$

I had the same problem; I blew in the lens as it extended and everything's working now. Seems to be VERY sensitive to dust in the lens/zoom mechanism.

Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera. I had the same problem and this fixed it, it seems to be a common problem.

Easyshare M1063 Digital Camera We received as Christmas present. Went to use it and it shuts off as soon as we turn it on.

This is normally a sign of weak/worn out batteries, and it's not uncommon for a camera to come with bad batteries. Make sure that your batteries are fresh/fully charged (HINT: you might try them in another device to make sure that they're good) and that your charger is working properly. Corrosion shouldn't be a problem on a new camera, but check the battery contacts inside the camera to make sure that they're clean. If you still can't get the camera working I suggest that you contact Kodak customer service via the web site or return the camera to the point of purchase.

My kodak M1063 will turn on but as soon as it does it turns back off. i have charged it and there is still no change... help me please

It is telling itself that it has a problem. When turned on a camera goes through a series of test, if one fails it shuts off. You will have to have the problem diagnosed or as is most often the case today is repairs are more than the camera used value.
