Question about Kodak EasyShare V603 Digital Camera
Hi, I got my Kodak Easyshare V603 camera for xmas but can not find the receipt so I can not send it in under the warrenty so thats not an option...what happenes is every time i try to zoom in the camera automatically turns off...please help me with anything i can do to correct this problem thank you
Ok i fixed mine by spitting on the battery contacts and wiping it off on the inside of my shirt...so it basically just needs to be cleaned-but make sure you dry it afterwards or the battery might break or leak

I was having the same problem. Every time I'd zoom the camera would shut off. This was puzzling because other than that, the camera worked fine. I'd had this camera for years and I really like it because it takes great pictures. I tried a new battery and the problem was instantly better. I looked at the gold contact pads on the old battery and noticed that they were black just in the spots that the camera touches them. I used an ink eraser (although any mildly abrasive eraser will work) to clean the contacts both on the battery and in the camera (be very careful not to leave tiny pieces of the eraser in the camera body). I don't have the problem with the camera, the new battery or old battery any more. It is important to keep in mind that zooming in and out takes the most amount of power. You've probably noticed that when your camera is low on power, if you zoom it will shut down. If you've got a voltmeter, test the battery. If it is old, it might be starting to fail. If you can't test it, it wouldn't hurt to clean the contacts or buy a cheap battery on e-bay. Hope this helps!
