    I have the same problem. Pretty much I got one charge out of the original battery (purchased 4 months ago) and it has been useless since then. This is so disappointing since Consumer Reports rated it a Best Buy (that's why I bought it). I will be calling Kodak on Monday to get it repaired.

Take it back to the store get your money back and then go out and get a real camera. The m853 is a piece of junk. I had the same / similar problems and Kodak is clueless about the problem.

Can I use the same USB cable to charge the batteries as well as transferring photos to computer from camera. If not could you tell me the serial number of each cable. Also would a universal USB cable be...


Yes, you can use the USB cable to charge the battery. But you need to insert the cable into the computer USB port, no the USB HUB, and the computer is on, not in sleep mode.

My Jazzy wheelchair will not charge or run


First have the batteries tested to be sure that they are good. Just because they are "new" doesn't mean they are good. Then with the batteries disconnected plug the charger in and turn the chair on. This will tell you if the charger is good.

If both of these are good then you have an electrical problem. You need to call a local tech.

Lens error and camera battery not charging.


SORRY TO SAY, BUT I AM READING HORROR STORIES ABOUT THIS MODEL OF CAMERA AND IT'S CHARGING OR LACK OF CHARGING SYSTEM. IT SEEMS IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE M853 AND ABOUT THE ONLY SOLUTION PEOPLE ARE FINDING IS USING A SEPARATE CHARGING BAY. IT SEEMS THAT VISTA HAS A POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ON USB PORTS THAT TURNS OFF THE POWER ON UN-USED USB PORTS AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NOT CHARGING. YOU NEED TO GO INTO THE USB PORT SETTINGS AND RIGHT CLICK THEM AND DISABLE THE SETTING THAT ALLOWS THEM TO SHUT DOWN POWER TO THE USB PORTS. IT ALSO SEEMS THAT THERE IS A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH THE MAIN BATTERIES IN THE M853 FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME YOU TRY TO CHARGE THEM. THEY SEEM TO NOT WANT TO TAKE A CHARGE. I KNOW ALL THIS IS BAD NEWS BUT GO TO GOOGLE AND PUT KODAK EASYSHARE M853, NOT CHARGING AND READING THE STORIES FOR YOURSELVES. THEY ARE NOT PRETTY. BEST ADVICE I CAN OFFER IT SEEMS IS SEPARATE CHARGING STATION AND DEDICATED USB PORT YOU KNOW IS HOT. GOOD LUCK ON THIS ONE. IF THE CAMERA IS FAIRLY NEW, I WOULD CONSIDER RETURNING IT! THIS ONE HAS A REALLY BAD TRACK RECORD. IF I CAN HELP MORE, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

Use the USB cable and connect that to the PC and try to turn on the Camera now.. Does the green amber light flash? If it didn't you have a problem with the Camera.

is the light that's coming on green or red?
if it's red, there's a charging error - contact kodak, they may provide a 5v ac adapter to resolve your charging issue

if it's green, was it blinking or solid? is the battery drained?
if the battery still has a little charge on it, please connect it to the computer then turn it on, check if there's power light
check if the screen is black - that means it's making a connection and the charging is the only issue - computer not detecting it, maybe resolved by kodak's software support

if the camera screen is active - that means there's definitely something wrong with the camera

arrange repairs with kodak, include the battery and usb cable

Charging battery


I have the same camera.
But when your camera is flashing the green light, that means it's transferring pics.
If the light is just green on the camera, that means that it's charging i think.
But i don't know how to tell when my camera is through charging is my problem.
