Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M1073 IS Digital Camera ?

I have a Kodak M1073 IS digital camera, it's somewhat new and all of a sudden, when i try turning it on, it'll turn on for a second, flash a yellown/green to red light and then turn off. I dont know what is wrong with it! it wont turn on and stay on! HELP?

Answers :

This problem is frequently due to either weak/worn out batteries or corroded battery terminals inside the\015\012camera. If charging/replacing the batteries does not clear the problem, remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth\015\012(heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or\015\012sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning. \015\012Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then\015\012replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it\015\012doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red.

Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?
