Answers :

I had a similar problem and the this solution it was not enough to fix the problem. Go in the maintenance menu : keep pressed Menu and Disp then Power on button. Go to Rom Update item and then System Initial. This will restart your camera and erase the firmware. Then reload the firmware putting the file QV-R40.bin in the memory card and Power on the camera with the menu button pressed first.

Powers off my canon powershot sd600 digital camera keeps powering off after about 30 seconds. I have gotten a new battery and that didn't help.

If anyone has a solution please let me know. Thanks!

Battery/power-up problem Camera will not stay powered up. The "low battery" indicator shows up on the display, and then it shuts off shortly thereafter. I've tried many combinations of AA batteries to make sure it wasn't really a low battery problem. I have not used any of the batteries Sony warns against in their manual (e.g. Manganese, etc.). Any ideas before I go look for a new camera? Thanks in advance for your help. MG

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!


The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera
