Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE V1253 Digital Camera ?

Turns on then automatically shuts of

\015 We have 2 kodak easyshare V1253 cameras. Within two weeks of each other, the cameras would turn on then automatically just turn off. The lights turn on, the lense comes out, then it just shuts down. We tried new batteries, charged it overnight and they both did the same thing. What is wrong?\015

Answers :

I have had the same issue were the lens would not retract. took it in for extended warranty work. lens now retracts but takes lousy pictures.
\015\012When I purchased this camera family members ran out and bought thiers shortly after I did. One by one the same issue has happend to their v1253's.
\015\012I dissmantled one and found that there is a tiny battery on the power board inside of the camera. apparently the tiny battery's life is about 1 1/2 years. This battery is not serviceable as it is welded in place. I am not one hundred percent sure if this is the cause but it makes sense.
\015\012It would be nice if kodak would own up to this issue and make good on repairs as they did with my kodak 5500 all-in-one printer and it's crappy print head. Kodak has sent me 4 print heads in the 2 years I have owned it.
\015\012I have 5 of the v1253's in my family and every one of the are dead. I would think a $250 product should last longer than 1 1/2 years.
