Question about Kodak EasyShare C533 Digital Camera

Wont turn on

I have had my camera for about a year no. I have had no problems with it until now. It has been sittin gon my dresser for a week, and when i went to use it it wont work. My camera will turn on the screen comes on but the shutter wont open. then the light turns from green to red and it all goes black and turns off. I put new batteries in it and it still continues to do this.

    Quite similar. I haven't used my camera for a couple weeks now. It was sitting on my dresser. The batteries were dead so today i went to switch them. At first it would turn on, then the light would go red and shut off. Now, it doesn't even turn on. Instead, the red light flashes and nothing happens. I also hear a very faint "click". :(

    My camera was a Christmas gift and it's already dead. I changed the batteries and nothing goes on.

    I do not use my camera often , when i got ready to use it i could not get it to come on. I assumed it was the batteries needing to be recharged, i put on the dock and let stay overnight and the camera still is dead ! The charge light on dock indicates a full charge, but the camera will not work at all!! please help!! the camera is only 2 years old and hardly been used!!!! Thanks in advance>>>>>>

    Yeah, funny how mine does exactly the same & it's 13 months old (just out of warranty). It's like the batteries are shot, even with new ones. I've tried throwing it round the room, but it just bounces and chips. This is NOT a suitable cure to the fault, but it did make me feel a little better...

    I have the same problem. I read where someone smacked it on the counter then it began to work. So I smacked mine on my desk- and it began to work. I have had to smack it several times now and the smacking seems to work only sometimes. I think Kodak should fix them. Or maybe Kodak needs smacked.

    I don't really use my c533 camera much and now when i try to use it the green light blinks...and then it freezes ... some times it will go on and seem to be working fine...then it will freeze...other times ill turn it on and it will go sraight to the time/date says:Date and time have been reset (Set Date and Time- Cancel) and it will be froze on that screen...
    sometimes if i let the camera stay on it will start to work ,for a second then it will shut off...other times I've tried to get it to work it won't ,it will just be froze and it won't even turn back i have to take the batteries out ..

Once you get the camera working again by the "shuffling technique", don't connect it to the computer again. Instead, purchase an inexpensive card reader and use it to download pictures from now on. typrice_31.jpg

Try removing the batteries then either plugging your camera in with the AC adapter or the docking station. Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera.If your camera works with either one of these then you have a problem with either the batteries or the battery contacts. If your camera doesn't work with the AC adapter then you will have to send the camera in for repair.

Try getting new trusted brand batteries like duracell, And also if it forces you to change the D/T just change it. Also try getting a new memory card. (trusted brand). If none of this works then there might be a prob. Maybe someone dropped it. Try asking the company 2.

Hope this helps
