Re: Shutting off

Only one reason - you have to change a new set of batteries!

Your batteries have been deterioriated because their internal reisitance have been increased.

I'm trying to review pictures on my Kodak camera but it keeps shutting off when I try to review them?

Usually when somebody that is trying to help you, BTW, it's not only one person, and asked you for more information, is really asking for you to give them just about everything relating to the issue. As an example: What type of batteries does your camera use, some camera use two type of batteries, a regular one like AA or AAA, and a flat battery, usually 1023 or something like that, this is to keep the camera info, and not loosing the time, and set up overtime you turn on the camera . Does it have a memory card? Does it shut off only when reviewing the photos? If you were to put all this info, plus the camera model, we could look into it for you. This is the kind of more information the other person was trying to get. As for the issue, all I can advice is, if it have a memory card take it out and insert it in a computer, so you can see the pictures. Best of luck.

The camera keeps shutting off when u take pictures

My camera did that when i was using semi used NIMH. I purchased new Japanese made Duracell 2450 nimh and solved the "battery appears full but shuts off while taking pictures" problem. But the camera still consumes alot, after 15mins the Batt went down one bar w/o flash.

Camera keeps shutting down i have to turn odd and

The camera will do this when you have vary low battery power, I would suggest leaving your camera on and letting the batteries run down on their own, if they already are than see if you can refresh your battery( some chargers have a refresh button) then completely recharge the battery. It may be that your battery is utterly shot and needs to be replaced. However it could be a totally different issue, and in that case I wouldn't have a clue. Try what I have suggested, I hope that you have success. God bless...

Camer keeps shutting's burry and powers

Digital cameras require lots of power. Bad electrical contacts can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but will be viewed as low if contacts are not really good. The LCD screen is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. Bad contacts make cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out.
Do not overcharge.
Reset by removing power up to one month is the ultimate non-physical repair for DVD recorders and other software using digital devices. Digital cameras reset to original settings if batteries are removed. Time required varies with function and camera, but try one minute. Check display and setup menu for non-auto functions and date/time. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged batteries and restart the camera.

Casio Exilim z75 - unable to take pictures

Try shutting off your flash and see if it still does that. It sounds like you have a problem with your flash not charging correctly. You can try resetting the camera but I doubt if that will help. I would try just shutting the flash off and see if that would help.

DiMage Z6 turns off when trying to view pictures

I posted this on another section:

My Z6 worked flawlessly for over a year, then suddenly started shutting off for no reason. Tried new batteries, etc. The problem turned out to be the memory card. My advice, buy a GOOD card instead of a new camera! Keep in mind, flash cards DO have a "life" to them - meaning they can only be used / erased so many times before they will cause errors (so don't buy a used card off of ebay - no matter HOW good the deal seems). If your shutdown problem started with a "unable to read card" warning, then its the card. The camera is actually "protecting" itself by shutting down. Good luck!
