I?ve had a similar problem with cameras and the cause was uncharged batteries. Even if placed in a functional charger the batteries may not hold a charge. Same if the batteries are good and placed in a non-functional charger. The ultimate test is to install batteries that you have physically tested and place them in the camera. If the problem persists then yes, you need to talk to your local repair shop or the manufacturers tech support.

No it is a switching issue and is not going to get better. Kodak technical support will tell you more be prepared though -if you have had this for some time then the next camera purchase looms I guess

The power on the Panasonic Palmcorder IQ PV-A206 turns itself off. I've tried plugging directly and with a fully charged battery, no luck.

please make this test and fix it. God bless you

If the video camera doesn't work, make sure the battery is charged (see The Battery Recharger Fix-It Guide) or replace a battery that won't hold a charge. Make sure the AC adapter is connected properly. Clean any dirty contacts on the battery, charger, and AC adapter with a cotton swab dipped in denatured alcohol. Remove corrosion with a clean pencil eraser, then wipe the area with an artist's brush to remove any debris. Find and test the fuse, if any.
If the power goes off soon after starting, recharge a low battery. Also, turn the video camera power off, then turn it back on and eject the tape. If the problem persists, check the fuse
If the battery won't charge, clean the contacts and fully discharge the battery, then recharge it. If the problem persists, replace the battery

If the video camera works intermittently, remove and reseat the to establish good contact. If necessary replace the fuse

Kodak C340 I installed new batteries and docked it over night and the camera still dose not turn on

with new batterys you may find if quicker to charge them in a battery charger and not in the camera,,,the camera charger is for "topping up" the batterys realy not fully recharging them its so you can leave the camera on its docking port and it will have fully charged batterys in it when you wont to use it,, to fully charge a new set of batterys it could take days,,,,so overnight is to short a charge to recharge them,,,leave the camera on its docking station for a fuw days at least, or use a home charger for your type of battery ie:AAA or AA, both take 16 hours to recharg fully

When I turn my camera on it stays on for a few seconds and then shuts itself off. I even put brand new batteries in it and it does the same thing

1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

are you using rechargeable batterys or cheap ones

Camere jammed and wont turn off and retract

Install new batteries.....really! They will just up and die when your camera's on and then there's nothing else you can do. If you have rechargeables....swap them out for any fresh batteries just to close your camera...then put your recharged rechargeables back in. Or put them back in and recharge on your camera dock.

Help with s630 Digital Camera

Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)
