Question about Kodak Easyshare 1725043 M893Is Digital Camera
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is preventing the camera from powering up. That problem will require professional attention, but try these fixes first.
If you battery is more than a year old, chances are that it needs to be replaced -- especially if the camera has not seen regular use.
Check the contacts on the battery and inside the camera's battery compartment for corrosion. Even if you don't see any, wipe the contacts firmly with a clean dry cloth, replace the battery, and then try charging again. If you see heavy corrosion, you may need to clean it with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. If you do the heavy cleaning, be sure to remove any residue from the compartment before installing the batteries.
If the battery fix and replacement don't work, I suggest that you take the camera to a Kodak dealer (NOT the camera department at a chain store) and also check online at www.Kodak.com to arrange professional repair. Be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit. The cost of a fix can approach the price of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty. Also, beware of Kodak's trade-in offers. You can often find a new or factory refurbished (full warranty) camera on eBay for less than the trade-in price - and keep your old one for parts.
HINT: Always remove the battery if your camera will be used for a week or more. Doing so will extend the life of the battery and prevent potential camera damage.
