Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C913 Digital Camera ?

When i turn on my Kodak EasyShare C913 Digital Camera it makes a werid sound and turns itself off. whats making it do that? and how can i fix it?


Answers :

It is probably your rechargeable batteries are not holding their charge and therefore the camera is not receiving enough power to start. The whirring would be the camera lense attempting to open. When it can't get enough power it will automatically shut off.

\015\012As a first step try removing the batteries and replacing them with completely new ones. Make sure they are fully charged.
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't sort the problem out it may be something more serious which would probably require a technician to look at it.
