Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare V550 Digital Camera ?

Kodak V550 EasyShare

\015 My camera will turn on, lens opens but then it immediately shuts off. I've just replaced the battery and that didn't do the trick.\302\240 Please tell me you all have a solution... I see a ton of other peple have the same issue, but no one has responded with a solution.\015

Answers :

Hey guys I had the same issue. Just update the V550 firmware via Kodak's website. Hope this helps... Let me know is you need additional info
I just got my second one of these little cameras, used, and this one has the dreaded 'power on then power off' problem.

I noticed that it works for everything EXCEPT pictures. It works in the dock, it charges and it powers on for favorites and to set date and time when the battery is pulled and replaced.

It is only when the lens extends that it turns off. I cleaned the battery terminals with an abrasive pencil eraser, you know, the old red eraser #2 pencil from grade school, and put the battery back in and sort of wiggled it to clean the oxidization off the terminals, and viola, it powers on to take pictures!

The battery goes dead in 5 or 6 pics, and guess what, it turns on and back off until the battery is fully charged.

Here's why! When these batteries fail, they cannot produce the current to power the lens. They may indicate full charge but they aren't!

If you can remove your battery, plug in the charger to the camera, (not the dock) and turn it on and take pictures, your camera is fine, it's the battery. If you cannot turn on in 'favorites' or see the date and time, and then go on to picture taking with just the charger connected, (and yes, the battery needs to be out to check this) then the problem really is your camera.

I have ordered a new battery, and I will post if it fixes it completly.

I have a Kodak EasyShare V550 camera. I've had it for years and had no problems with it until recently. Now I am unable to upload photos to the computer. I've tried using Picasa, Roxio, and Windows to upload the photos, but all of them say that the memory card is empty ... but when the memory card is in the camera, I can see and review all of the photos. Could be that the camera and/or the memory card are over the hill, but I'm still hoping that I can get our vacation photos from it
