Question about Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera
I have had my P850 for about a year, and within the last few months, it has gone to where when I turn the camera on, it will stay on without a problem, if I leave it alone. If I try and zoom, the camera will shut itself off, and then turn itself back on again immediately. It does the same thing if I try and take a picture as well, I can snap the shot, sometimes, then it turns itself off, and back on again. This camera has never been dropped, or exposed to rain or any other harsh weather, it just started acting strangely. Anyone else have this problem, or know a solution to fixing this?
Try using a liquid contact cleaner. I read about this fix on another site, worked great for me.
A product called DeoxIT in the U.S. is what was suggested, I am in Canada and can't get that here so I picked up a product from a company called NexxTech. Just a liquid contact cleaner.
Take out the battery of the camera. Put a few small drops of the contact cleaner on the power button and let it drip down into the switch. Rotate the on/off switch back and forth 5-10 times, put the battery back in and Voila! Fixed!
No more random on/off irritations, camera works just like it did before the problem arose a few weeks ago.
It worked great for me.
