I just had this same problem and was very frustrated. I changed the batteries and everything, but to no avail. Then out of my frustration, I tried to turn it on in every mode by moving around the dial on the top. It finally worked. Something must have just gotten a little out of whack.

Try a different cable
Try a different computer.

If all fails please contact KODAK in order to arrange a repair or order a new cable. Remember your USB cable is covered under the same warranty as your camera, so remember your serial number when calling:

When I turn the camera on, it immediately turns off. I have changed the batteries twice already. What's causing this?

Some batteries simply don't fit right in this camera. Look at the battery connections-no standard bumps and springs. Then take a good look at two different makes of batteries. Some batteries have edges arount the end that extend further than others.
Try a different brand of batteries.

My camera cant charge if I put it on the light it dosen't CHARGE EVEN IF I PUT MY USB CORD WHAT SHOLD I DO?

Please note that the camera will only charge from the computer if the camera is turned off. Also try a different USB plug. 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.

Lens will not open with batteries

Try cleaning the battery contact inside the camera batteries slot.

Also test a different battery, possibly a battery pack that you tried on a different camera.

If that does not fix the problem, then there is a faulty component iside the camera, usually you get this kind of problem because of a faulty camera, or oxide on camera batteries contacts.

Powershot G7 Camera won't turn on.

Same issue happened on Saturday. Only difference was the lens cover didn't completely shut when I tried to turn it off. I turned it on then off again and the cover shut....but it wouldn't turn back on. I fully charged the battery, but nothing. Tried two different batteries.

I was going to take mine in today to Wolf Camera in CO where I bought it.

Note that the camera was fully cleaned and and a new lense added less than a month ago by Canon (through the warranty program through Wolf)

Did anyone get any feedback?

Camera turns off

1. Try the camera with a different CF card. 2. Try the camera with a different battery. Defective components don't always fail in expected ways. The battery might have enough power to "sometimes" operate some functions but not consistently. The CF card may be malfunctioning is some way that draws too much power from the camera & at times causes it to "lock-up" or shut down. If you don't have another battery or CF to try, you may be able to bring your camera into a camera store where they may have & let you try 1 of each on your camera to see if it fixes the problem. They may do this in the hopes of selling you either a new battery, CF or camera depending on which proves defective.
