Question about Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital Camera

Camera won't turn on after wrong ac adaptor was used, battery is OK

I have a V550. My son put the wrong AC adaptor in the camera to charge the battery. The battery will still charge, but the camera will not turn on. I had the battery checked out and it's still good. I also tried a new battery with no luck. Is it worth having it looked at for repair or is it most likely to cost no than it is worth?

Probably likely that the circuitry is damaged and that getting it replaced would be more than you could get another for.
Try eBay for a cheap one, perhaps missing the charger and accessories.

I have a sony cibershot camera for over a year now, it has always worked nicely, up until a month ago, it suddenly wont turn on anymore. I,ve already charged and re-charged the battery but nothing...


make sure the batt is charging and working fine.check also the batt contacts.make sure its clean.insert batt to your camera.instead of pressing the power button, press the play button instead to power camera on. if unit turns on,might actually be an issue w/the camera unable to power on in camera mode.if it turns on initialize cam (p.75 of the manual).see if it works.if still wont turn on try using a diff batt (or if you have an optional ac adapter model#acls5k use it, attempt to power on cam to isolate issue w/power source).if batt or ac adaptor not available try to check batt with another cam if possible to test batt. if still unit doesnt turn on using a fully charged, diff batt, or using an ac adaptor,unit would reuire service. hope this info helps.thanks:)

When i go to charge my kodak M863 camera (in the wall or by USB) the green light flashes and then the red light blinks 3 times. please help this is the first time charging my camera.


You can used the USB cable to charged the camera, But some of the M863 camera will not take charged usign the USB cable., I strongy suggest used the AC adaptor just make sure the AC adaptor is 5V ac adaptor it will only charged using the 5V adaptor., About the flashing green it indicates camera is charging just wait for the solid green light it means it fully charged

You may purchased also a special charger for your battery(KLIC-7001)- cahrer model is K8600-C. i think the price of this charger is around $29.00

Camara shuts off as soon as it turns on. Lens


I believed that you are using the battery came from the box the KLIC-7004 which is very good. Now since the battery indicates its charge, first thing you need to do is to removed the battery and Memory card, Now wipe the 3 metal contacts of your battery then reinsert only the battery in your camera then Turn It On. If the camera shuts off try to used 5V AC adaptor to Turn On the camera, If this failed to turn On using the AC adaptor It means the camera needs of service call Kodak Tech support toll free 1 800 421 6699 ext 12
