Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS Digital Camera ?

The camera does not power up even after installinng new batteries


Answers :

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a\015\012fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or\015\012better) and turn the camera on. Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then\015\012remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn\015\012it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a\015\012memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn\015\012it on one last time. Fix #3: Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the\015\012camera on in picture review mode. Have no idea why this would work,\015\012except that quite a few people have reported some success with it. Fix\015\012#4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the\015\012ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time\015\012press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to\015\012autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens\015\012barrel guide pins in their slots. Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the\015\012gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or\015\012grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include\015\012blowing with a hair dryer in ?no heat? setting, or sucking the gaps\015\012with a vacuum (careful with this one). Now we're entering into the\015\012realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There\015\012is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the\015\012following two fixes. Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover\015\012on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may\015\012be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the\015\012camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported\015\012success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for\015\012damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as\015\012unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens. Fix #7: Try forcing\015\012the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with\015\012any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for\015\012damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently\015\012pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the\015\012power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's\015\012crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps\015\012around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel\015\012that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in\015\012is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of\015\012the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide\015\012pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click,\015\012immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates\015\012unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

No pwer I am a high school photography teacher who inherited 20 Canon PowerShot S1 IS cameras (going on three years old). I noticed a few last year that didn't turn on even when brand new fresh batteries were put in. The battery chambers are clean with no apparent damage. I am now up to 8 cameras with this problem. They won't even power up when hooked up to the computer for downloading. i even changed the date/time battery just to see but didn't work. Any ideas?

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.


Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

The battery is run down every time I come to use the camera. So it seems to bleed out power even when turned off. I have replaced the original battery and the new battery also runs out while sitting turned off. Is this a SONY generic problem or is there some item that is "on" and draining power.

No power My camera will not even power up. I bought a new battery and charged it but still no power.

Digital camera I have a digital camera (Pentax Optio A10) and just recently the camera stop working. Every time I turn on the power button, the lens zoom out and a few seconds later the camera will turn off, and the lens will come back in.

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co
