Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Note as per these tips that there's a silver rectangular switch on your SD card door, and a black switch on your battery door. Inspect both of these to make sure they are being activated when the doors are closed.

Sounds like electrolytic capacitor dried up needs curing, which is power on capacitor and left it absorb some moisture in humidity on power. Some time a few minutes, hard cases may take a few days.

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 have no power, I tried changing batterie with a new one but it still doesn't work


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 !

Batteries replaced but still says change them


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.

Sir my sonyDSC-40 Camera dot't power on. In power butten pressing time only one time bliking green LED.


Turn off the camera, remove the battery pack. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. Reinsert the the battery pack. Turn on the camera.

Please make sure the Battery is fully charged before performing this steps.

Also try changing the Batteries of the Camera. "AA" NiMH, "AA" Alkaline, "AA"
Nickel-Metal Manganese are the compatible Battries for the Camera. Hope it works!

I have Canon power shot S2 IS digital camera.I bought it around 2 years back.Now my camera is showing the sign of "change the batteries" even though the batteries are fully charged and the lens does not...


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

Fuji F10 No power


You said that you changed the battery, did you put it in the right way around?.

I had exactly the same trouble, changed the battery (got it on ebay for £2.99) charged it and it worked.

Having said that, I closed the lense from external power. If the camera wont operate from external power then the camera is probably dead.

Camera will not power on


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).

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!


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.
