Power On the Kodak C633

Hi,

There are times when my Kodak powers off with a flashing red light even though the batteries are new.

I use Kodak alkaline batteries.

Do you know what the problem could be?

Akaline batteries batteries are not powerful enough to last more than a few shots, maybe 15 or 20 depending on the lcd screen if its running all that time.
use a much heavier NiMh (nickel metal hydride)
they last for 50 to 100 shots.
if you still have the issue then its a camera circuit issue
Consider rechargeable as they save a fortune

I have a canon power shot A590 and it keeps shutting down saying batteries are dead, even though they are new!


Are you still using alkaline batteries (or worse yet "super heavy duty")? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in today's digital cameras. Some may also have reached their shelf life at the store, and though brand-new right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with modern rechargeable batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.
Modern rechargeable batteries have over 5 times the power density of alkaline batteries (that's right, they last up to 5 times longer than an alkaline battery. And you can recharge them!). Keep in mind rechargeable batteries will save you much money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Kodak DX3900 camera can't get power from battery


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, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Camera not operating - cannot take picture


alkaline batteries?
please try lithium crv3 or lithium aa's, it may really do that even with a new set of alkaline aa's
if you're using ni-mh, make sure it's recharged and if it is, and it's still doing the same thing.. note that most ni-mh's life span is 300 charging cycles. if you barely use the rechargeable batteries, they can still deteriorate through time. if the rechargeable batteries are new, or say 6 month's old - that means the cam actually needs a repair

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on


SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

Troubleshooting


Hi
I've just solved the problem. It's the batteries, having called Kodak tech support they told me to use CRV3 AA lithium batteries instead of alkaline. Issue for me fixed.
