Re: no power

Directly from Kodak's website:

We recommend that you do not use alkaline batteries in EasyShare cameras because they may cause unexpected shutdowns and loss of pictures.

Re: no power

I had this problem . and it pursisted for the lifetime for the camera. i was using the alk. battr. may this damaged my set. i consulted with kodak service guys. they gave me a 9000/- + repairing solution!!!:)
so i repaired it from the local camera repairer. it was 2500/-(INR).now it is okay and delivering a great quality pic. though i have nikon D70 and my new D300, i kept it for some sort of use. dont leave it. it is a very wonderful camera except that battery consumption.

I have a polaroid i634 that has an issue with power. Initially I put in alkaline batteries and it worked for awhile (or at least as long as my daughter used it). Then it stopped working. I was told to use...

Hello ..
I hope that really problem with charging.
However, it look like cause from battery. Whatever type of new battery that you used, that no meet the requirement as original battery that included with camera. During testing the camera, they also don't use other battery except that original battery. Maybe it seem like have same power, But it chemistry is different. However, you can try using same battery from polaroid also.

TRy look here
I don't want to scare you, but is good to have new battery same like original and also from same company. As long you are using other type battery, It maybe will effect components in camera. So beware and careful.

If you think that charging is problem. THen try recharge back around 8hours. However if u are using external charger. and not using camera to charge battery.If you only can charge through camera, try recharge around 2-3 hours. Pull out battery from camera. place safely and avoid any magnectic environment . Around 2-1 hours, charge again 2-3 hours. After charge, around 10-15 minutes, try used it. It still have problem? If still face same problem. I advice to find suitable battery.

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable...

Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts. I have seen battery contacts with a thin, transparent coating that came from leaking rechargeable batteries- doesn't look like the usual green crud, but it stops electricity from getting through. Try giving the contacts a scrape- you will need a long thin screwdriver or something of the sort.

We have a cannon a2000is. After replacing the batteries and printing the pictures off the memory card the camera will not come back on. The screen says Cannon and the indicator light blinks for aprox 20...

It sounds like a low power startup. Are you sure the batteries that you are installing are good? If they're Dollar Store "Super Heavy Duty" batteries, that's likely your problem (shelf life has been exceeded).
Recommend trying to start the camera with premium alkaline, or best yet, rechargeable batteries (they have the most power, and save you money too!). If the above doesn't work, recommend contacting Canon, especially if your camera is less than a year old. The camera in that case would be eligible for warranty repair.

Kodak m1073 dont open

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:

Low Battery

Many Kodak brand cameras have this problem, and when I say many I mean almost all. The only solution is to try different types/brands of batteries until you find one that lasts.

You can try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries and you will see a difference.
Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

"change the batteries"--but they're new batteries!

I had the same issue which cleared itself up when I used digital specific batteries (theoretically higher power) as well as replaced the cr1220 battery (in a small gray plastic slot next to the 4 AA batteries).

Rechargeable Batteries

This is a triky one. Most cameras will work with rechargeable batteries. If they don't work the most probable cause is this: a normal battery has about 1.5 V nominal charge. Because you use 2 of them you get 3 V nominal charge. Most rechargeable batteries have about 1.21 - 1.25 V like yours. This is given by the technology type used in their construction. However 2 1.25V batteries will result in 2.50 V at nominal charge and some cameras woun't go whell with the 0.5 V difference. You should try other types of rechargeable batteries, maybe some of them will work, but it is recomandable to do that before you buy them, so like I said, it's a triky choice. Try to go to a digital camera shop, they may sell rechargeable batteries more compatible with your camera.
