Hi,
Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper).
Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries.
This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists take your device to a Kodak repair center for possible internal fauty.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

Red light display with SB


The flashing red light indicates that the camera's flash is charging.
Your electronic flash does not work on the low voltage supplied by the camera's battery. Instead, the battery is used to charge a capacitor(s) that are connected in a manner that raises the voltage to a level that will fire the flash. If the batteries are not adequately charged or the capacitor(s) are leaking, which will occur as they age, enough voltage will not be stored to allow the flash to fire.
Make sure your batteries are fully charged. Remember, rechargeable batteries do go bad after time and must periodically be replaced.
If the battery is fully charged and the red light continues to flash, the camera will need to be sent in for repair (probably replacement of the capacitor(s)). Call the Nikon Service Center at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday, and they can arrange for you to have your camera evaluated and provide you with an estimate without cost. Your camera is rather old and it is possible that it might make more sense to replace it with a new model.

OBJECT ERROR RESTART CAMERA


If you did not obstruct the lens, would think there is a battery problem. Digital cameras require lots of power. As you call on it to do more things like extending the lens and focusing the power requirement goes up.

I had a similar problem with my camera and finally discovered that the problem was with the battery to camera electrical connections. I cleaned the contacts as described in the source link about two months ago and have not had a problem since.

The following excerpts came from the source link. Hope this helps!

Most cameras will reset to original settings if batteries are removed for at least one minute. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged batteries and restart the camera.

The secret to making digital cameras work better is having good electrical contacts between the batteries and the camera.

Digital cameras require lots of power. If electrical contacts are not really good, this can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but will be viewed as low if contacts are not really good. The LCD display is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. With bad contacts, cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out.


To prevent overcharge, use an automatic two or more hour battery charger with safety timer, temperature monitor and trickle charge technology ($9.78). For longer life, NiMH batteries should be charged often and kept in active use. To preserve battery charge, use the view finder and not the LCD display when possible. Maximum capacity is reached after 2 to 4 charge/discharge cycles.

Canon 300d flash won't fire. Pops up ok but display just reads "busy" and camera locks up. Must turn on/off to get camera working. External flash works ok.


This may sound obvious, but have you tried to make surer the battery is fully charged and then see'ing if it still does this? The reason I suggest this is that I had a similar problem and when I fully charged the battery this problem went away. I tend to keep an extra battery (fully charged) plus the charger on hand at all times.

Fuji finepix s1000 zoom error lens is stuck out what can I do???


If you recently dropped the camera, you may have damaged the lens housing -- that will require professional repair. Otherwise, your problem may be as simple as low batteries or corrosion on the battery terminals inside the camera. Make sure that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and replace them in the camera. This cleaning works about 90% of the time, and I hope it clears up your problem.

Battery low indicator comes on even after new battery installed


I also have this problem. I put freshly recharged batteries in the DX3900 and the camera starts to turn on and reads the memory card (the green LED blinks) and then I notice that the in CAPTURE mode the lens does not extend out of the body housing. The top display shows a flashing low battery warning and after approx. 15 seconds, the camera shuts off with no function.

I have determined that the camera appears to have changed its low battery sense level as I have verified that the batteries are indeed fully charged by using a volt meter. If I have the camera in a warm environment, and do not have the LCD display on (removes a major power drain) the camera can be made to work for a short while. If I select the LCD to turn on, the extra drain seems to cause the camera's battery monitor to think that the battery voltage is too low and the camera shut down. I have yet to resolve this issue.

Camer keeps shutting off...it's burry and powers

Do not overcharge.
Reset by removing power up to one month is the ultimate non-physical repair for DVD recorders and other software using digital devices. Digital cameras reset to original settings if batteries are removed. Time required varies with function and camera, but try one minute. Check display and setup menu for non-auto functions and date/time. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged batteries and restart the camera.

Low battery indication


You have either a faulty charger, a faulty battery or a fault in your camera. I purchased 2 batteries for my Sony 505v and from new one of them kept flashing an empty battery sign right in the middle of the display. Actually it was fully charged but Sony batteries have a little circuit inside them which tell you how long the batteries will last. In my case I could continue to use the battery but put up with that flashing icon. I returned it to where I purchased it and it was replaced Immediately. Please ,next time give us a little more information as to what battery type it is and which camera it goes in. Some cameras can develop a natural short circuit over time. BMW
