Question about Kodak EasyShare V603 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera Won't Turn On; the 3 lights are Fashing Red

Have tried two batteries and different chargers - still 3 flashing red lights. Emailed Kodak Tech Support. Their response:

"Kindly take out the battery and memory card, and then connect the camera directly to the AC adapter. Next, switch the camera ON. If the camera turns on fine (without the battery and card), then we might be dealing with potential battery problems. On that note, you may use a different charger to make sure that battery is fully recharged.

If the camera will not respond, then we need to send in the camera for an evaluation and repair."

Before I send it anywhere, does anyone else have an answer?

Thank you.

Matt

Sorry, didn't see the part about 2 batteries and chargers. I've had the V603, it broke, and I took it apart. It is a very complex little camera and I don't recommend opening it up past taking off the front cover and rear cover.

The CCD is just behind the lens assembly, and the motherboard is behind the aluminum cover for the slot for the SD card. Most components on the motherboard are surface mounted and trouble shooting or soldering is tough! You might try cleaning the battery contacts using a pencil eraser (just go through the battery compartment opening). Even with new batteries, if the battery contacts on the camera have any corrosion, the camera won't be getting full voltage.

If you take the front or rear covers off, you might see if you can see any loose connections by doing that. Other than that, probably a lost cause. Sell your camera on E-bay as one that needs repairs. There are many people who would buy it to use the LCD from it to repair their 603V. If you like this model, I'd look for a cheap replacement on e-bay.

Green light goes on when I turn camera on, but 3 red lights flash when I shoot & nothing happens. I tried changing multiple batteries, all alkaline. No luck yet. Any ideas?


The 3 flashing red lights indicate low battery power! This could be because of low battery power (all 4 batteries must be good), the battery contacts in the camera are poor, the make of battery being used (try different make of battery)

The camera won.t turn on the battery charger blinks red when trying to charge both of my battreies


I had the same problem with flashing red light on my charging dock (within 10 sec after 2nd green light came on). I did fix it. There is a rust brown securing tab that holds the battery in place. Mine must have a broken spring..... So, I put the battery into my camera, pushed securing tab over the battery and then wedged a toothpick tip to keep battery tab in place. Once back on the charger, I had no more flashing red light. The battery is charging correctly. The problem was that the battery was not held down into place correctly. I now just have to unwedge the toothpick tip to remove the battery...but not really an issue at all as I keep the battery in there all the time. Very easy fix!!!
Others suggested to reseat the plastic dock. But mine was secure. Somewhere there is not a good battery connection that is causing the red flashing light. I am thankful to figure it out. Hope this helps you.

I have 3 blinking red lights


Here are the steps: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

WON"T WORK


sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)

What sort of batteries are you using ? Alkaline do not have the oomph to run a camera They need to be Ni-Cad or Ni-Mah Check out the Tech Support Web Site at Kodak
