Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera ?

Kodak p850-turns off and on


\015 The battery is charged, but my camera keeps turning off and on for no apparent reason. I have not dropped it or exposed it to water. I've had it for 3 years, so I'm wondering if the battery is just bad???\015

Answers :

Try using a liquid contact cleaner. I read about this fix on another site, worked great for me.
A product called DeoxIT in the U.S. is what was suggested, I am in Canada and can't get that here so I picked up a product from a company called NexxTech. Just a liquid contact cleaner.
Take out the battery of the camera. Put a few small drops of the contact cleaner on the power button and let it drip down into the switch. Rotate the on/off switch back and forth 5-10 times, put the battery back in and Voila! Fixed!
No more random on/off irritations, camera works just like it did before the problem arose a few weeks ago.
It worked great for me.
Good Luck!
I am having the same problem. Do i have to take apart the camera to get to the power switch or just let the solution run down through the shutter button and the power switch?

I just got a new Kodak EasyShare M893 IS camera. I got it yesterday, for Christmas. And I tryed to turn it on this morning, but it would turn on, so I read through the instruction book. I plugged it up to an outlet and waiting for the green light to turn off, as the book told me, and then unplugged it. It still would not turn on, what do I do? I did just get it, would I already have to go out and buy a new battery?

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?
