Question about Kodak EasyShare C663 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a kodak easyshare c663. Powers up but turns off right away

I have a kodak easyshare c663. It was working fine but then I dropped my purse with the camera in it and now it's not working. When I go to power on, the "Kodak easyshare" display appears for a second and the little sound happens but then the display disappears and the blue light by the selector dial and the green light by the viewfinder flashes then it all shuts off. I've changed the batteries but still not the solution. Any suggestions??

SOURCE: Kodak Easyshare camera turns on and off

Yes you are. My wife denied that she dropped in the sand but I found a list of photos that she wanted to print on a post-it paper in the cover and it had sand all over the sticky part. Used the pressure air spray to clean the rings and it is back to life. Well It worked but there was some problem during zoom in&out, so I spray the rings while zooming and out and that cleaned it. I hope I don't have to open it to clean the mechanism. Thank you.

Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera. I had the same problem and this fixed it, it seems to be a common problem.

Remove the memory card and the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Does this camera operate on regular AA bateries. Put 2 brand new ones in and it will not power up. The manual says Kodak does not "support" Alkaline batteries....

chrissy66 (12/10/2007)reply to this comment (by James DeRuvo - 12/12/2007)Sounds to me like your lens may have come out of alignment. Was it dropped recently? Since your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is have Kodak should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Kodak refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to try resetting the camera.

Kodak is also of the opinion that lens errors also occur when you use batteries not recommended by Kodak.

I recently chatted with a kodak specialist about this issue and he recommends changing your batteries to NiMh rechargeable batteries. These are the batteries that the camera is designed to use and using other types - like alkalines, can often cause the lens error to occur. If that doesn't work, then the camera indeed does need repair.

Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries (AA Size): These Ni-MH AA batteries last up to twice as long as alkaline batteries when used in your Digital Camera - and you can recharge them up to 1000 times in our rapid charger.

Oxy-Alkaline Digital Camera Battery (AA Size).



CRV3 Lithium Batteries: A non-rechargeable battery designed specifically for today's feature-rich cameras. This battery is the obvious choice for speed performance, and long life. It delivers faster flash recycle times and lasts up to 10% longer than our previous design!



Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack: Provides exceptional capacity with its 2.5 hour fast charge cycle time; can be recharged up to 1000 times in the EasyShare Camera Dock or EasyShare Rapid Charger,

4 gb sd card not formatting


The C663 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can C663 work with a 4 GB SD card?


No. The C663 uses SD cards 2GB and smaller, not SDHC cards 4GB and larger.

We have a C663 and C360 Kodaks. Both doing same


This problem is frequently the result of corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Make sure there's no cleaning residue left inside the camera, then clean the battery contacts and reinstall the batteries. If this doesn't solve the problem you may have something more serious wrong with camera and I recommend checking the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

It uses a simple Q&A format do diagnose problems and attempt to find a solution.

Kodak c663 camera not working !


Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Lense stuck


You have a cracked or stripped gear. If you ever took it to the beach it likely got sand inside. Even a little. You should try blowing out the gaps with compressed air from a can of air duster. If that doesnt work, you need it repaired
