Yes, it could be an issue with the camera or the battery. The easiest way to find out is to try a different battery in the camera. If this works then the most likely culprit is your battery. If this doesn't work then your camera requires service.A good camera store should let you try one of their batteries in your camera.
Pleaseremove the Battery from the camera and give a look inside the batterycompartment. Use a spot light & make sure that place are clean , not rusted& the battery connector pin are not bend or broken. After that insert thefully charged battery and try to turn on. If its not turn on then its confirmthe camera internal power supply unit is faulty. For few reason this problemstarted.1. Theconnectivity cable from camera to Circuit board damaged or disconnected.OR2. Thepower supply transformer stop working & need to replacement.OR3. turnon button connection may disconnected.
After visual checking by the technician is possible to say which part isfaulty. For the confirmation you need to visit a camera repair store. With outvisual survey technician can't confirm you which one of them is faulty. Thankyou.
Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.
Apparently, you have pics on the camera's internal memory. Your card won't work until those pics are gone. Here's how...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and it should work.
I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time. For some reason it just stopped working. I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts. I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes. I found this link on FixYa :
http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/batteries/batteryDigCamChart.jhtml?camera=C813 I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it. The batteries were new; just generic. By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store. I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life! I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.
