Shows error on the batteries

If your camera shows error even after changing the batteris, then it will not be an problem with the battery. Please check the setting of the camera once and switch on the camera. Also if the problem still persists, reinstall the software and try again.

Vtech camera - will not switch on. Have tried changing baterries and sometimes can get it to switch itself on when the batteries are changed but thn it will not switch off.

Have you tried checking if the battery door is tightly secured? Make sure it's completely closed correctly, the charge could be messed up. If that doesn't work, try cleaning doors and where the battery touches the door. Some dust particles or dirt can be on there and effect the power.
Good luck!

Camera will not switch on only ever used twice

I presume that the KODAK shop tried the following: Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) If no joy you will have to think about a repair. In order to organise your repair or Trade up please Contact KODAK:

Camera will not work, have changed the batteries, getting nothing

Things to check first are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Details on what needs to be checked may be seen here. It won't work for every case, but it's worth a try.

Camera does not turn on

Yes there is, but it's tiny, soldered to the main circuit board, and buried deep inside the camera. But there's two other things you should first check. There's a tiny switch on both the SD card door and the battery door. These switches are closed by small plastic protrusions on the doors as they are closed. These little plastic pieces can sometimes wear down or break off. If so, you'd need to jury-rig something to make sure both switches are closed.
