Why doesn't it recognize the correct battery?

If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.

My camera won't work I turn it on but it's telling me the batteries are dead but there brand new batteries then it shuts off!! What is wrong with it I got it for Christmas last year but up until like

is there a dc power adapter plug on it or use USB cord ito the PC.This way should able to check all settings & power saver timers.Not saying it is the reason but a friend had issues as camera drained batteries.A short may be the cause in the battery compartment or the sensor reading the battery power levels.My guess is manufacture flaw.But only solution I can think of other than a repair is leave batteries out.I had a Fuji Camera & will never own another.Have you tried YouTube search on solution? Good luck

Kodak camera when turned on, puts a blank white screen then turns off.

Condensation shorted out the circuits causing it to shut down. Put the camera in a dry place.

Batteries die quickly possibly a short

The battery is probably just bad. There is enough energy in these batterys that if there is a short you will definitely see it spark or smoke or even catch fire.

If you use the batterys till they are drained before charging, or if they are a few years old then the batteries are not going to be able to hold that much of a charge anymore. The camera might only start then shut off or take one or two pictures and be dead. That is typical of old batteries needing replacement. If you charge your batteries then take them and the camera to a camera shop and ask if they would check. they should be able ot put a battery into the camera or try your batteries in another camera so you can see what is wrong.

Was taking pictures and the camera shut down, put in new batteries and nothing happened

It could be that you have the auto power off set to a short time like a minute

Shut down

You may have damaged the memory card not the camera. Try the card in a card reader and also a different card in the camera.

Good luck

i don't know what age the camera is, did you try full batteries , normally it shouldn't do this it must have a defect if the batteries are not the problem..

perhaps contact the dealer see what is wrong with it..

My digital camera shut off. Is something wrong?

Nothing is wrong with your camera. The camera has an automatic, power-saving feature that helps extend battery life. This features turns off the LCD or camera power when the camera has been inactive for a given period of time.
