Question about Kodak EasyShare V603 Digital Camera
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?
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.
