Question about Kodak Cameras

1 Answer

My Kodak Pixpro FZ51 camera showed the message Battery Exhausted and then shut off. I am trying to charge it but when I plug it in to charge the light blinks red and it doesnt charge. I have let it do

I have done all the trouble shooting that I can. I have looked in the owners manual. Which was no help. I have searched online and that hasn't help.

I'm affrays your battery is gone. You could try to measure the voltage it is still giving with a multi meter, but I think it will be at least 1,7 volts less than what is printed on the battery. This means at least one cell in the battery is dead. I can't believe the contacts are dirty or oxidised, because the camera is too young. But if the contacts are not clean, try cleaning them with a dry cloth. If you should buy a new battery, make it a habit to charge it at least every couple of months, even if you only use it once a year. A battery is better off when charged and discharged now and then, then when you keep ik laying in a drawer.

I've had my camera for a long time so I don't think I'll get the option of taking it back and exchanging it but I keep having the same charging problem. I just tried the flash button trick... the green light is on, steady, and holding. I'm not going to touch it any more and I hope that if I leave it this way for a bit it'll charge up.

My advice is to NOT LET THE BATTERY RUN DOWN past half charge, otherwise it won't have enough power to stay on long enough to register the fact that its plugged in to the computer.

SOURCE: Battery EXTREMELY Exhausted

As the other person says Nimh rechargable batteries are the best....Also somewhere in the menu system you will find that you need to define which type of battery you are using, this may be the cause...Nikon UK have an excellent after care team if all else fails.

There are three battery type settings in the set up menu: Alkaline, COOLPiX(NiMH) and Lithium. Might be worth looking at. To be continued.

The battery is probably a Li-ion battery and if the voltage gets too low, trying to charge it will lock the battery out as this is a built in safety feature to prevent the battery from charging too fast and causing a fire. You may want to try this. Take the battery and put it in to freezer for about an hour (do not Freeze), and then put it back in your charger and try to charge it. If it does not come back to life then the battery is kaput, and you are going to have to get a new one. You may have to any way as the battery is old and has lost it's ability to be recharged fully.

Why does my Kodak pixpro fz41 sometimes a round orange light appears before I take the flash picture. Other times it doesn't do it.


This sometimes indicates that the exposure is correct for the distance of the subject. Remember that the flash on your camera is really only effective up to 3 - 4 meters

How come my battery wont charge on my brand new Nikon S 8000? There isn't an indicator light showing the status of a charge...also I had it charging for 24 hr but still battery exhausted message.


We had this same problem...battery indicator light not showing and battery not charging. We found out by accident that if the battery cover is open, it won't charge. So open the battery cover, open the USB cover, shut the battery cover and then plug in the USB as normal. It worked for us, hope it will work for you too.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

When I turn the camera on the following message appears- high camera temperature, camera will shut off. The camera is a Kodak easyShare Z710


Have Kodak Easyshare V1253 with same, "high temp.," error then shutdown. Kodak batt. showed 25% charged. Charged batt 100% & temp. error went away. Batt. internal shows camera if batt. too hot. Try new batt.
