Hello. Remove the batteries and get all new and all of the same brand. Be sure you get the proper battery for your camera. Go to a camera shop to be sure. BEFORE you put the new batteries in do this. Clean the battery contacts within the camera with the eraser end of a common pencil. Joe

Low battery showing replacing batteries does not solve problem


The flashing low battery symbol is the way Canon film cameras showed that the camera has had an error and has stopped functioning. It can have multiple causes - but for a quick check remove the lens, turn off the camera and then turn it back on - see if the symbol stops flashing. A problem with the lens can also cause this problem (usually a failure of the aperture unit)

My camera worked fine for 3 years, when suddenly .... when i'm zooming fast (zoom button pushed down) camera switches of. If i'm zooming slowly everything is ok. Some master said that zoom lens motor...


I would say to check the batteries and their connecting surfaces plus the contacts in the battery compartment. With bad connections on the batteries, when the camera zooms slowly it does not use much power. When zooming fast it uses more power (current) and if the batteries are making a poor contact the camera will shut down due to low volts. Check that first before spending big money. If you are using Duracell batteries, they have a short + pip end which some devices will not work with them due to poor conection. Compair a duracell battery with another brand. see the difference on the + end.

Try Power Resetting the Camera.
To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera.
Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera.
Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved.
If the issue still persists service of the Camera is recommended.

Camera immediately turns off after being turned on


I have owned three Kodak cameras, the last and recent one being the M1063. They all three developed the same problem within two months of ownership....."zoom lens will move in or out depending on original position(gets stuck in out position), and camera beeps, then turns off."

It was always sand/dirt/dust in the zoom section.

Hold the camera in your right hand, as if you are going to take a picture and gently tap the left side of camera against the hard, lower part of your palm.

You might have to do it a couple of times and you might have to be a little more than gentle. Just don't bang it hard directly on the LCD screen, just the left edge.

It always works for me. Good luck.

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).
