Does there is something happened when you turn on the camera? If you can heard sound made by the len or the camera try to open but turn off in a second? If so, there is something wrong with the lens, and this how to fix camera lens error will be helpful. Else, if the camera are without any reaction you can check it the joint of the camera to battery is well.

Haven't used my Canon rebel xt for awhile but tried today and it will not turn on. Purchased new CR2016 battery and fully charged the other battery. Has not been dropped or misused. Please help


Aposta,

It is possible if you haven't used the camera for a while that the contacts inside the battery compartment need to be cleaned. This can be done with a q-tip and some alcohol.

Thank you.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success. Thanks & Before you leave, if you have found my information helpful and if you haven't already done so then please press the ACCEPT button, this is how I am paid for helping you today. POSITIVE feedback & bonus is appreciated

Today I turned on my camera to take a picture and while it was turning on it made a weird noise, zoomed in and out, and then turned off. Why does it do this?


Are you using Li-ion batteries as recommended by Kodak?
Also, are they charged up sufficiently?

Many people try to use Alkaline or even NiMH batteries without success in Kodak digital cameras.

I would suggest using charged up Li-ion batteries.

How often should the camera be charged


This is not a straight forward question, it would depend on how often you wisg to use it. It also depends on the type of batteries you have installed. Nic Cad, Polymer, NMH. Polymer don't need charging often because they have good holding power for months. The cadmium and NMH types need a regular charge, for instance at least a top up onjce a month to keep them live. If you dont use the camera much remove the batteries whjen in storage place them in a kliplock bag and place in freezer. This may be extremem but keeps the batteries alive for years.

Always before use fully charge the ewith an intelligent charger, one that stops when capacity is reached. This prevents damage from Overcharging.

hope this is helpful,

My kodak M1063 will turn on but as soon as it does it turns back off. i have charged it and there is still no change... help me please


It is telling itself that it has a problem. When turned on a camera goes through a series of test, if one fails it shuts off. You will have to have the problem diagnosed or as is most often the case today is repairs are more than the camera used value.
