Question about Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera

Open Question

My Kodak EasyShare P850 will not turn on. I purchased a new battery for it, charged it, and put it in the camera. When I turn the camera on, it will make a little click noise but that's it. Nothing shows up on the screen, you cannot look through the view-finder, it will not do anything. Any ideas of what could be wrong with it?

When videos are spliced, multiple audio and video tracks are needed. Kodak EasyShare digital cameras can handle only one video and one audio track at a time. Use the Apple QuickTime player to view spliced videos.

SOURCE: Kodak EasyShare P850 - Black screen

here is the link to the Kodak support page for your camera; http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/products/ekn030485.jhtml?pq-path=7546 It has user manuals, FAQs, troubleshooting etc if you select "view in browser" under manuals (the download seems to have a problem) then select "camera problems" under "troubleshooting" First see if anything there helps out (especially check the "EVF/LCD toggle button"). Next thing to try is removing any memory card if you have one inserted and see if this helps. If so then try reformatting the memory card. replace it if this doesn't help - try and borrow a card from someone to check that this makes a difference. Next try resetting the camera to all default values - this is easiest to find by looking under "reset" in the index of the manual - there is a setting in the setup menu of the camera that allows you to select this option. If that doesn't help then i would recommend contacting kodak (all details are on the link page) - they may have a solution for this problem that has not yet been added to the website Hope this helps - please ask for more info if not :)

Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera. I had the same problem and this fixed it, it seems to be a common problem.

Maybe, the batteries need to be changed to new ones.
Try to use Li ion batteries as recommended by Kodak.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

If you just purchased this camera, you can try phoning place of purchase or make a trip there. It sounds as if the software in camera may be messed up.

Wont turn on and lens wont extend. Put in new fully charged battery but still nothing. Can hear motor but nothing works.


This is may be a camera battery problem or a lens error. Try Li-ion batteries first and see if anything better

Flash doesnt always work and lens retacks when you turn it on


Flash always draws more electricity to charge the big capacitor, the main flash's component. When battery getting too low, camera will turn itself off. Try it again with freshly charged battery or you may need to replace Li-ion battery. A cheapo third party's battery will do.
Good luck
