Question about Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital Camera

Battery won't charge on Kodak Easyshare V550

When I plug the camera into the charger, the 4 blue lights on top blink rapidly. The lens will not open either. It did the same thing with 2 other batteries. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Please help, I have the same problem. Camera will only work in favorites mode and I just bought a new battery.

    When we attempt to recharge our V550, the four blue LEDs on top are lit, sometimes, the LED farthest to the right blinks. The camera won't power up, lens will not become extended ....the camera is only about 3 years old, and does not get heavy use in extreme environments, has never been dropped or otherwise shocked.

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger

Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

Here are the steps:

Lzoom lens goes out and in, immediately, then camera turns off

Pull the battery and plug the charger into the camera. It should turn on and take pics now. If it does, you need a new battery!

Yeah, I know, the battery shows fully charged but it's weak and old so it really doesn't have the current to drive the lens.

Try to clean the battery terminals with an abrasve pencil eraser, (old red eraser #2 pencil from grade school) and wiggle the battery in the camera (gently) to clean the terminals inside the camera.

Let the camera charge the battery completly, (not in the dock!) and see if it turns on.

If it does, you will probably find that it discharges VERY quickly.

Buy a new battery! That extra battery that you have had since you bought the camera is probably also shot! They do have a shelf life!

If the camera does not turn on with just the charger, (no battery) then it's probably a lens error, but you should see an error code if it is.

Good luck!

Kodak v550 digital camera

Hey akpssttt, I had the same problem with my kodak and even though I was able to turn on the camera, the lens would not come back in. So after awhile I just gave up took it to the repair shop and they still weren't able to fix it. So I left the camera for about a year now, gathering dust, but recently I decided to give another shot, and amazingly when I plug the camera into the charger, the lens went back in! And now the camera works perfectly.

So I would suggest you leaving your camera out for awhile and do not charge it until the batteries is completely drained. And then plug it back into the charger.

Hope this help.

Kodak V550 EasyShare

hmm, that happened to me too when the battery was dead. try recharging your camera. make sure it is sitting on the charging dock right. make sure the charger is plugged in and it's working. see if the battery was put in correctly. if none of this helps, try a different battery, maybe the one you bought is no good. who knows what shelflife is on those

Kodak V550 Camera Problems

Sounds like a new battery would do wonders. I would contact Kodak and see if hey will offer you a new battery. If not then I would go buy one. The battery is probably the most likely to go bad so fast on a camera.
