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 understood that this model takes special battery pack ...so try to replace the batteries with high quality ones...the regular batteries are not able to power it up ... and by special I mean try something a little more expensive ....I believe its an issue related with the amperage ..anyway ...in case you know for certain the camera is in good condition ....I'm talking by experience cause I also had the same problem with a Panasonic one ...with almost the same tech specifications...and it did powered up after I bought better quality batteries... let me know how it worked up ...have a good day !
hi, I had the same problem; check carefully the yellow note from the camera box which says : use ONLY alkaline or rechargeable NI-Metal or oxyride batteries - DO NOT USE Ni-Cd nor lithium nor nickel nor manganese batteries. try that and pls let me know if it helped or if any other solution worked. tx,
i suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of voltage easily upon using,
there is a specified lifetime for rechargeable battery, depends on your usage and charging method, theymaybe fully charged but sometimes wont give you enough power to drive
Are you making sure that you are using Alkaline batteries? Regular batteries won't work. Even rechargables will only work if you first put in alkalines and change the battery type in the menu, then put in the NiMH batteries (not NiCads).
please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe. the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it. after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast. even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.
