First of all, make sure the battery terminals inside the camera are clean (you can clean them with a qtip and alcohol or a pencil eraser). There are a few things that can cause this, and this web blog details things to check and look for:

Other than those things, you could have oxidized on/off switch contacts, or something trickier. Get an estimate before having it repaired, as the cost of repair can often justify buying a new camera.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps you.

Hello. Remove the batteries and use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean the contacts. Then replace the batteries and run it thru it's paces. J.

The battery is brand new and when hook it up and turn the key the neutral light and the hot light come on but when I hit the start button it clicks and doesn't click anymore. Not even turning over. Th


Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Charge the battery as not all batteries are charged sufficiently when new to do the job. Also not all new batteries are good batteries as they suffer manufacturing faults which allow them to discharge internally. some batteries are sold without the acid so check that is not the case.. Check all terminal connections including any earth wires.

Kodak c340 won't turn on


Hello Carol, Are these batteries new and name brand ? It sure sounds like low battery power, Those cheap batteries found in some stores do not have the energy to boot a camera even when new out of the package. The camera has a very high demand to start up. I own several cameras that will not turn on with brand new cheap batteries.
Best Regards, Russell

Take it back to the store and tell them it probably something the company did work.

Any time I try to turn my camera on it always tells me to "change the batteries" even when the batteries are brand new.


Have you tried charging the brand new batteries? Often batteries are shipped with little or no charge in them, and need a full charge before use.
