How do i fix my kodak easyshare ZD8612is when wont turn on even with batteries?


Where did you get these new batteries?
I hope you know you can't use alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Only Lithium batteries can be used, because they do have a higher voltage.
If you are sure you have the correct batteries, check if the contacts are clean and shiny. Clean contacts always with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
the picture down here is just to show you can't use alkaline batteries. There are also rechargeable lithium batteries for your Kodak.

My camera wont turn on or work even after i put brand new batteries in it... whats wrong with it???


If your batteries did not leak at all, and corrode th points where the. Batteries make contact, then it could be something very serious on the main board, or something simple like the on/off switch. Really it's the sort of problem that needs to be seen by someone. I'd check the battery connections first, then make absolutely sure the batteries are going in the right way around. Flat end is - and pointed tip end is +. Good luck

I have a Canon powershot A1100is dig camera. When I try to turn it on, it reads need new batteries. even if I change the batteries. Sometimes it wont even turn on. Help


Do you using Ni-MH batteries? Canon cameras judge the battery is low power by the real-time voltage of the batteries. And the voltage of Ni-MH batteries are lower than Li-ion ones, so the camera will notice low power even there are new batteries. Try Li-ion ones and see is anything help. best wishes!!
If you will use of a special battery, please come to our online shop for digital camera batteries

Hello. Remove the batteries and use the eraser on the end of a common pencil to clean the contacts. Then replace the batteries and turn it on. J.

Camera wont turn on/off


I went to another problem, knowing my camera was stepped on, I messed around with moving the lens part around, barley moving it, and then I tried holding the on/off button and the button to take the pics with, and then put in new batteries and it turned on. I would suggest doing that.

WONT TURN ON


Digital cameras really are battery hogs (especially cameras that use only 2 AA's). Some brands of batteries will have problems just starting up the camera. This may be true even if they're alkaline, brand new, and just out of the package.

Recommend rechargeable NiMH batteries only for your camera. Believe Canon even states this in their user manual. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks 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 slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

If the above doesn't work, here's some other things to try:
