Chances are that the problem is corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and clean the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Remove any residue that's in the camera from the cleaning, then reinstall your batteries. Hopefully this will cure the problem and get the camera back up and working the way it should.

If that doesn't do the trick, you might want to try your luck with the Kodak Troubleshooting guide at:

    Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera
    with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning
    with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue
    that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the
    batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,
    check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

    This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the
    camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth
    (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or
    sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning.
    Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then
    replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it
    doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

In this case, I think the problem is with the orange battery clip inside, or the two battery spacers inside the compartment, after trying to "remove the corrosion" from contacts and bumping around the two battery hold-down spacers, afterwards the clip didn't work, and the camera would spontaneously re-start if I touched it when off.

I have brand new lithium batteries installed & when i turn camera on, it immediately shuts off. camera is only 1 year old


I have the same problem... cleaning the contacts does not work. I'm using NiMH 2450 mAmp batteries, brand new, and I get a low battery indicator immediately. Camera shuts off unexpectedly. A short search online indicates that HUNDREDS of people are having the same problem. Kodak help not very helpful. I'm ready to buy something else!

When I turn my digital camera on it turns off immediately. Why?


Try connecting your camera to the computer while the battery is out, i know that your camera support USB charging, then turn on the camera while conencted to the computer, if the camera turn on it means the battery is no longer working. And if still wont turn on, maybe there something wrong with the camera. Call kodak for assistance. or visit www.kodak.com/go/itg for online troubleshooting.

Camera lens turns on, then back off immediately


Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. First try removing the batteries and cleaning the camera contacts with a small metal brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. If that doesn't fix the problem, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Kodak C533 turns on briefly but then turns right back off.


what type of battery are you using?try to use lithium or rechargeable batteries. Alkaline batteries can cause power issues. If you are using a memory card, try taking it off and turn camera on without the memory card. if is still does not power on, camera needs repair. you can set up repair for your Kodak camera at www.kodak.com/go/itg
