Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare CX4200 Digital Camera ?

I have a Kodak cx4200 digital camera that won't turn on. It hasn't been used for at least six months and I discovered that it had wrong batteries in it. Now it seems to be dead. Help!

Answers :

Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012with a soft cloth (a heavy buildup on the contacts may require cleaning\015\012with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue\015\012that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the\015\012batteries. This clears most power-on problems, but if yours persists,\015\012check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

I own an Olympus Evolt E-500. Unfortunately, it was dropped and landed on the corner of the case near the battery door. The camera turns on, lcd screen, flash, and shutter seem to work, BUT pictures are black. Difficult to view anything thru viewfinder. Camera store told me they didn't know what was wrong, but would cost me at least $270 to repair. 1) does anyone know what is wrong, 2) can I fix it myself?

I found this camera available for purchase as brand new for $450. Spending nearly $300 to repair an older version may no be a wise choice. You may find there is a market for the camera in its current non-working condition on eBay.With that ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time. Just open the battery cover,take out all batteries and then insert ,then turn on,it MAY work for 10 sec.Please suggest what may be wrong and what to do.

Make sure that the battery terminals in your camera are clean (rub them with a pencil eraser, q-tip or micro fiber cloth). Dirty terminals can cause poor contact with your batteries, therefore, impacting there performance.Also, if you ar ... Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge. What am I doing wrong?

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 5.1MP - purchased about four and half years ago (ancient in technology years I know) - but it's a good camera and has served me well. For about six months I've had issues with it staying powered on. Have used rechargeable batteries (the ones it came with) and same size Energizer rechargables forever (it takes double A batteries) - I thought it was the batteries I'd been using but bought a fresh pack of regular consumable double A's - Duracell and same problem - it

I own a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi. I have recharged the battery and put it in the camera. However, the camera won't turn on. Shortly before having this problem, I seem to recall a message in red letters on the display that said something to the effect that my battery pack was bad. I have a sinking feeling that my battery is good, but there is something wrong with my camera. Can you recommend what I should do?

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

Minolta x-300 I have my father's Minolta X-300. It all seems to work, I fitted new batteries, but there is a delay in the shutter speed. When you look in the viewfinder, you see the speeds on the right and depending on the light/aperture/etc. 2 red lights light up the proper speed, but there is a flashing red light at 1 or 1/2 all the time,and the shutter works at that speed. Could anyone tell me what I have done wrong, my Dad used it some time ago and it was alright, so I have got it wrong. Tha

Camera will not "click" to take a picture. I had two old batteries which I charged -- no help. Then I bought a new battery on line -- still no good. I have noticed over past several months camera seems "reluctant" to take a picture -- might have to try a few times to get it to "snap."

There may be dirt or debris that collected under the button causing it not to work properly. Try using an electronics cleaner on the button. This will clean out any dirt and hopefully allow the camera to "snap" pictures better. Here is a link to e ... Digital Cameras

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

Hi,\015\012 First check your warranty - you may be able to return it for repair under that - and yes it needs a repair. The metering system is now broken, The chances are you'll recieve a new one as it is more cost effective to them to do this. ... Olympus FE-270 Digital Camera

Why are the pictures a red hue? The Canon PowerShot A85 pictures are sometimes full of horizontal lines, sometiimes not, and the total image has a reddish hue. Most of the color values are in the pink, red, and violet.I replaced with a fresh battery, but have the same problem. Is the CompactFlash card defective? Also I purchased a 4GB Sandisk Compact flash which later on I discovered had the printed seek, write rate of 30mb/s. This does not seem to work in my camera. I then discovered that my ot
