I went to another problem, knowing my camera was stepped on, I messed around with moving the lens part around, barley moving it, and then I tried holding the on/off button and the button to take the pics with, and then put in new batteries and it turned on. I would suggest doing that.

Open the compartment where the batteries are, take the batteries and put the same ones back in. If that dosent help check if you have a warranty or if you can take it back. Next time DONT buy Sayno, theyre the worst brand ever.

When my kodak easyshare c182 is plugged into the USB of my laptop it wont turn on so i can put pictures onto my laptop. i have cheacked on my computer and it hasnt come up


Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from the camera to a computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, the camera will appear to the computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

My camera wont turn on not even with new batteries.


Assuming you've almost never dropped the camera and it's never taken serious physical damage, it sounds like the insides of your camera need a good cleaning. Use a can of compressed air (most electronic stores carry this and they'll know what you mean) to clean it. From what I hear, even the smallest bits of dirt will prevent the camera from turning on.

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(

Wont turn on


Well to be3 a 100% about the battery I would replace it with one that you know or is guaranteed to work. Camera batteries can look OK from outside and be completely collapsed inside.

No Charge lights can indicate NO battery and if there is one inside then it is dead and registers as a no battery ( no charge light)

The red light blinks in very low state, but totally discharged it will not blink and wont blink again until loeft on chareger for about 3-4 hrs to overcome the low state.

Today, I was using it. Turned it off for a whle, went to ues it again & it wouldnt turn on, the power light was on & three beeps came out of my camera! It wont turn off until I take the battery...


Most probably the lens problem, it got stuck or it's damaged. Try to gently pull out the lens to see is it only got stuck or take it to service

Lens error and blurry photos


If your images are blurry and the lens wont move smoothly it is very probable that some kind of force on the lens has damaged a gear, barrel or even dislodged an element internally. When the lens detects an obstruction in its movement the camera reports accordingly,"lens error". You should have the camera checked by a service centre, it will most likely need the lens replaced as they are not serviceable.
