Question about Kodak EasyShare P712 Digital Camera
Camera turns on and off repeatedly. Battery is good and fully charged.
I think the problem may be in the camera software. I reset the timer for auto shutoff from 5 mins to 10 min, This seems to have solved the problem, but it will take a longer time to be sure. I would suggest everyone with the problem try this and post the results. A easy fix if it works long term.

There are several things that could cause this.
1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?
2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD600 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.
3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
