Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

This problem is frequently due to either weak/worn out batteries or corroded battery terminals inside the camera. If charging/replacing the batteries does not clear the problem, 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:

I turn the camera on and the lens thing comes out and goes right back in and the camera turns off.


Hi,
To me, that usually means that the batteries are dead. I would replace/recharge them and try again.

M863 lens extends and then immediately retracts


Kodak Easyshare cameras use Li ion batteries, as recommended by the manufacturer, which have higher voltages but not necessarily higher amp hours per battery pack.

When I first bought my 14.1 megapixel camera from Kodak, I tried various batteries, including Alkaline, Ni MH, and they didn't work very long before needing replacement or recharging.

This is because the voltage isn't enough on other batteries.

I do not understand why they make it this way, because it fooled me a lot. I thought that since it had a AA format that it would be alright to use AA batteries of any type in the camera. But, this is not so, in my experience.

Good luck getting your camera to work with new Li Ion Batteries.
Note: if the Li Ion batteries do not work, then there is something wrong internally with your camera.

Contact kodak.com to see if it is economically repairable.

Thanks for asking a question on Fixya.com.

My kodak M863 worked great. then one day the screen turned white. the flash goes off when i try to take a pic. and it turns off and on fine. the screen is just always white. any advice????


Have you taken out the batteries for a minute and then put them back in? That usually resets the camera and any problems that were just a glitch.

If your camera was dropped or exposed to liquids it will have to be sent to a Authorized RCA Repair Center as a NON-WARRANTY repair.
Here is the link to find one for digital camera repairs.

When you locate one, it would be best if you contacted them by phone and explained the problem to make sure they can help you.

hope you get it fixed!

My camera turns on, then it turns off right after.


My kodak camera is 2.5 years old when suddenly did this a few times then completely refused to turn on at all. Research showed me that this is a firmware issue in Kodak cameras. Kodak will look at it and try to fix it for $70 which is not worth it in my case as I paid $130 for the camera brand new 2.5 years ago.
