Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I keep putting in new or recharged batteries and every time I get ready to use my camera if it over a week, it says change the batteries. This has just started happening the last 3 months. The camera is...


The rechargeable batteries, especialy NiCD and NiMH ones, loose they're charge over time. Even if fully charged, they loose all of the charge within a week or two. This is not a malfunction.

However, if you are using alcaline batteries and still get this problem, probably you have some electric problems inside (maybe some batteries leaked in the past). In this case try cleaning the inner contacts of the battery slot. If the problem persists, go to a local electronist for repairs.

Cameras continually die around me.


I think the camera must have been discharging the batteries, since you said you have used a rechargeable batteries, and second do you remove the batteries from the camera whenever it is unused, because leaving it inside the camera when not use can diminish the power contained in the battery. Try to study the camera again by making sure the rechargeable batteries you are using are fully charge and kindly try to be removing the battery from the camera whenever you are not using it and see if it works.

Kodak C813 turns off because of low battery - all of the time!


The way to test this is to have some new batteries of the best grade, don't use the cheaper types, these may not make these cameras work correctly. I have seen this problem before.

Also you can try a set of fully charged rechargeable batteries. These kinds of cameras may use more power and need more power to make them work right.

Camera won't turn on.


Make sure the battery contacts are clean. The rechargable batteries looses their charge even when they are not in use. It is important to fully charge the first time the rechargable batteries.

Battery Problem


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I wish my 8700 would last even as long as yours does. 2 hours, period. on or off, taking pictures or not, two hours & it's a stone dead battery. Just on the off chance it will help I'm about to upgrade the firmware to 1.3 (I don't really think it will help). After that I've decided to take the camera apart & try to find the problem or possibly just a hack that will let me turn it OFF without removing the battery. I'd as soon have a bunch of bits for the project bin as have to put up with this 2 hour battery life problem. Good luck with your problem, and if I find anything worth while I'll post back.

Losing power rapidly...


The only thing I can suggest is that the metal connections on your camera have corroded due to the long life of your camera. I had a similar problem where any batteries I used would not work, regardless of what kind of battery it was. Turns out I had a nice greenish layer of corrosion on my connections which I sand-papered off. This might be a little tricky if your connectors are way inside of a battery holder, but it can be done nonetheless. Try taping some sandpaper to the flat end of a pencil and clean it out that way. Hope it works.

Camera keeps turning off


Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.

My camera is not starting at all


I had the same problem. Almost brand new. Would turn it on and would last only 2-3 seconds, couldn't even complete one picture. Suddenly, I put in fully charged batteries and now it works! I had tried these before. The only difference was I used the batteries in another device and returned them to recharge. Just last night I decided to try once more and the charged batteries worked. No problems since with power, except now I can't get images to transfer! I did notice one little line in instructions I had never seen than when you change batteries, you have to program the camera with type used.
