Re: Kodak C643 died...
The pics on the memory card should still be fine. you will have to purchase a memory card reader they are inexpensive ,for example a usb memory sd reader goes for around 25.00 be sure it can read sd memory the memory card is ejected next to the batteries. http://www.dpinterface.com/reviews/canon-powershot-a430/canon-a430-side1.jpg
when you insert them in the reader it will read as another drive and you will see your pics.

i find only certain brands of batteries will work, keep trying and maybe when you first turn it on after installing new batteries turn it one clockwise click (not sure what the icon is that it will point to) and see if that clears it up.
If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that
is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your
may be due to corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: 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 place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
The problem you describe is frequently the result of dirty/corroded
battery contacts in the camera. Try removing the batteries and
cleaning the inside contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or
fine sandpaper. Remove any residue left from the cleaning, then
replace the batteries. Hopefully all will be well.
If the cleaning doesn't work you might want to check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
i bought some nimh rechargeable batteries a couple years ago and they still work to this day. im on my second camera with them and it does that to me when the batteries are dead. try opening the battery door when it does it and then close it and try turning it on again. if it does come on then its the batteries.
I haven't any direct experience with that model to really know, but the 16meg memory in the camera is listed to be to be flash in some specs I read ,which makes sense. but if you have to replace the main board then the pics are gone.
I heard from another posting on here and the answer, that someone took fine sandpaper and cleaned off the terminal ends of both battery and camera and blew out the dust particles from that before replacing the battery, then then camera worked. I have yet to try it with my Kodak camera that is 2 years old and suddenly died too! The batteries are fine and work in other cameras.
Remove batteries and clean contacts both inside the battery chamber and on the chamber lid/cover.( use something slightly abrasive ). If this doesnt help replace fire fuse situated on the main pc board ( underneeth rear cover ).
