    Fixing your problem could be as simple as cleaning the battery contacts
    in the camera, or the solution could be a lot more complex and
    expensive. Here's a link to the Kodak Help Center - it provides a
    simple Q&A format to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

The problem you describe is frequently the result of dirty/corroded battery contacts in the camera. Try removing the batteries and cleaning the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Remove any residue left from the cleaning, then replace the batteries. Hopefully all will be well.

If the cleaning doesn't work you might want to check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Acer 5733 will not turn on


No solution, mine does the same exact thing but blinks orange five times. I got an error message that said click to fix it. I did it and the computer tried to reset itself but simply died. With brick cord out...nothing happens. Same with battery same with power cord in. The battery was fine. It may have died during a forced windows update. I hope someone comes along otherwise it's "buy a mobo" and buy a battery and so on....

I have to reset date time etc everytime i turn camera on


If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.

1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover.
3. Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull up.
4. Remove the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow. a570isbackupbatremove.gif 5. Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow.

7. Replace the battery holder and close the memory card slot / battery cover.
8. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.

My camera now works!!! Found a suggestion to clean the battery compartment on opposite side of switch with lighter fluid. Only had pressurized fluid for lighter so used rubbing alcohol instead. Put a few drops of 70% Isopropyl alcohol in chamber and clicked switch several times. Dried with hair dryer. Didn't work, tried again. Didn't work. Then tried a few drops of wd-40, clicked several times, rinsed with alcohol, dried with hair dryer, clicked several times AND IT WORKED. Still works. Thanks everyone(especially codmac) for the ideas.

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on


SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

Camera turns on for three seconds, beeps three times, then stops.


It's the optical zoom. The motor that pushes it in and out died.
