Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare M863 Digital Camera ?

My camera will not turn on, it is fully charged. When I turn it on it goes to the main Kodak screen and then just shuts off. I have tried cleaning the battery, but nothing has worked.



Answers :

There is a systems control board failure or the systems control has detected a problem in the camera. I know you have fully charged your batteries, but try regular batteries just to be sure, because as the rechargeable batteries degrade the systems controller will shut the camera down.

I have a Canon Rebel XSI. Lately, when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I know there's a charged battery -- two, actually, because there's a battery grip.

No matter what I do, my camera keeps giving me a "Battery Depleted" message whenever I try to turn it on. It's a Pentax Optio E40, and I've only had it a couple of weeks. It was working fine, but then one day when I tried to turn it on, I got this error. I replaced the batteries, but the error still came. I've checked the orientation of the batteries, tried re-inserting them, etc, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thank you!

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700?

Low Battery When turning the camera on, the screen often says "Low Battery", even if the batteries are brand new. The problems seems to last a few hours, then it turns on as normal. I have tried cleaning the contacts and the battery tubes, but nothing obvious seems to cause it, or solve it. Sometimes, it cuts out to "Low Battery" in the middle of taking photos, when the charge indicator on the screen has just been at full.
