Question about Kodak EasyShare Z1275 Digital Camera

CAMERA TURNS ON FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN SHUTS OFF

ITS NOT THE BATTERIES!!!!! I have had the camera about 8 months (MINIMAL USE)and it has worked great and I was very happy with it until this Memorial weekend when after taking about 6 photos it died! Batteries are good, but it will only turn on for a second, screen flashed on/off then the blue power button shuts off. That is all it will do. I let it set overnite and tried again, this time it started to work, I took one picture and the same thing happened again. Now it will not work at all (SAME PROBLEM AS ABOVE)and the lens is in the open position. The camera has not been subjected to any shocks or water EVER! I have seen on the web that this problem is common with the Kodak Z1275. If this is how Kodak builds cameras and especially supports them, then I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER KODAK PRODUCT EVER AGAIN!

Simply change the batteries as the batteries are unable to tale the load internal damage because of not using regularly.

My Samsung WB100 turns off after switch on. Got new batteries and same problem plus 'old' batteries are still good even though camera said they needed replacing after a few days minimal use.


Make sure you are using name brand high quality batteries and not some generic from China. Camera require a great deal of power to boot up.

Camera won't stay on, even with new batteries that I know are charged.


Ensure you are using alkaline batteries and that battery contacts have no oxide or liquid on top of them. If you do not use alkaline batteries this is normal.
If batteries are ok is a short circuit.

Mine did the same thing. Just let it sit for a couple of days. Don't mess with it. It'll eventually stop doing that and work. That's what i did. It worked for mine.

CAMERA TURNS ON FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN SHUTS OFF


My Z1275 was off with the lens open. When I turned it on, the lens moved a little, the screen came on
for an instant, and then the camera off.

Here is what I did to "fix" it.

I turned it on and helped the lens (gently) close while it was moving. It closed and the camera came on.

It must have been dropped and slightly bent in such a way where the lens could not close.

Good Luck!

Sounds like the same problem as with the samsung digimax 401... Internal memory. Insert a memory stick and hopefully the camera will come back to life,no?
