CAMERA WON'T TURN ON; BLINKING RED LIGHT

After the card was full the camera shut off and would not work and blinking red light appears on the base of the camera.
Bought a new battery but that didn't work. Help and thanx!

    Found the camera manual and read that the blinking green light (not red-- sorry) indicates that the card is full. True, but the camera will not function.


    Any ideas?
    thanx again

I turn my camera on, the green light blinks then the light turns to red blinking then the camera shuts off. What's wrong? Batteries are fine. Also happening with my Kodak EasyShare C530


Red light indicates that the battery is out of charged
are you using the recommended battery the (KAA2HR or Ni-MH). If yes make sure that your charger is working fine.

now if your charger is working fined the second you need to do is to recondition the battery or purchased new KAA2HR battery it means that the chemical content on the said battery is already crystallized., this is also applies to your C530 since their using dame battery

New Card


I don't know if this is related to the recording problem, but I believe the red blinking icon may be telling you to replace the backup battery. It's a button-type battery and is located under a small panel located in the area where the LCD folds into, just below and to the left of the buttons there. The battery is a CR1616 battery. Try replacing it and see if it resolves the recording issue.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


Hello,
Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.

Blinking red indicator light


Hey pollyannac,
The red blinking light probably means either the flash is recharging, or the camera buffer is full and it is writing files to your memory card which the lcd monitor should read Busy while the camera is writing the files. If it is the flash recharging then you could try using more powerful batteries such as the Canon NiMH AA batteries. If the problem ends up being the camera is writing images to the memory card you could try getting a memory card that has a high write speed. These memory card are usually more expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on


SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

Optio 33LF LCD problem


This often indicates a card error. Transfer all your images then format the card in the camera. If you still have the problem, try a different card. If you still have the problem then looks like you will have to send it in for repair.
