Having problems with your Kodak Easyshare M341 12.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.7-inch LCD ?

When i push the on/off button on my camera, the lens will open and the camera wil either not come on or come on for a second then turnoff- but the lens will stay open? some times i will have to enter in the date. is this the battery? i have not had i for that long- maybe 8 months


Answers :

First, the battery should be charged fully, and it should be a LiIon battery pack from Kodak, not alkaline AA or NiMH AA.

\015\012Also, if it is losing the date, there is sometimes an internal battery that has to be changed at the factory for $80 or so.
