Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z710 Digital Camera ?
Will not power up with new batteries before this it would power off at random
The first thing to do is check the battery contacts inside the camaeras battery compartment. Make sure they are not dirty or corroded and clean them if necessary. I have seen this problem with other models of the EasyShare wher users have used normal then rechargeable batteries that have effectively squashed the battery contacts so when then went back to using normal batteries they did not fit correctly.

My camera will not turn on. Just before this happened, I was getting info on the camera that the battery power was low and I had only 10 seconds before it went off. I would put in a new battery and them same thing happened. Finally, the power is off and even when I put in new batteries and check to be sure they are in correctly, I still can't get the power to come on.
Can I have the make and model of the camera? And what type of batteries you are using re-chargable or the regular batteries? ... Digital Cameras
Good evening I'm in Lima Peru on a medical mission away from the US for two weeks. I am on my 2nd week and my Nikon D200 stopped working.

At home i could charge both batteries put them in and when i pressed the shutter button the control panel would go blank and I would have no power.

I have a JVC Everio HDD camcorder, model number gz-mg330rex which is approx 2 years old. The camera has had little use, been well looked after and carefully stored. Recently I went to use the camera using battery power and the camera would not switch on, so I tried the camera with the mains lead and it worked fine. I assumed there was a problem with the battery , so I bought a new battery from JVC. When I tried the new battery the camera would still not turn on. Do you have any ideas what could

No Power Battery needed charging, charged it, placed in the camera as usual,s till no power. Just brought a new battery with the hope that the battery is faulty or past it's sell by...

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement.

The Sony Cyber-shot acts as if the battery is dead. Purchased new battery this afternoon. The camera worked fine for about a hour. I was turning the power on and then off frequently taking pictures at Bible School. The camera would turn on and then after turning it off would not power back on.

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.

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
You didn't say what type of batteries you are using. Best are CR-V3 lithium which should give 500 shots. 2300 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable batteries should give 200 shots. Worst are alkalines which Olympus do not recommend. Have you checked the co ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again. This happens with brand new batteries and with rechargeable batteries that have been fully charged. Any assistance would be appreciated. Doug Clark

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55. On powering up, I get the message "For use with compatible battery only" then it shuts down. The battery that came with my camera still works fine. I thought I had bought bad batteries but I returned for exchange, and 2 replacement batteries from 2 different stores still shows the same error message.

Battery Problem I was given an SD9 last month and so far like it except for some battery issues. Using fresh AA's it will often give me the 'low battery' warning as soon as they are loaded. I bought the CRV3's thinking that would solve it, it did initially, but after about 40 shots I took them out, tried some new AA's and again the low battery warning... replaced them with the CRV3's again, low battery (surely they were not run out after 40 shots?!) Everything is fine using power cable... but

My S3 IS was working perfectly until one day it powered on but simply would not snap a photo. And once it's powered on, I can't turn it off. I have to leave it on and it eventually powers down after some time. I've tried new batteries and turning it on several times without any luck. The screen powers on and I can access the menus, but it won't take a picture or zoom. Any ideas?

790SW Problems You mentioned you are on your third one. So do you just keep sending them back to Olympus with the receipt and they keep sending you new ones? Is the battery charger supposed to blink when it is charging? I was snorkeling with mine when it seized up and wouldn't work anymore. I was turning it on and off so that I could save battery power. I guess something got stuck in there. Then it would let me view pix, but not take pix. Then it said the battery cover was open, when it wasn't.

My Samsung CX1L DSLR camera is telling me that there is no battery power (the flashing battery sign on the top display) even when I've put new batteries in. I'm guessing there's a bit of a dodgy connection somewhere, but could I sort this myself, or would I have to get it repaired somewhere?

Sony DSC-S600 Sorrry! What happens is this:- Turn camera on,Cybershot screen opens up with musical jingle then it will say "Access" then another screen opens up saying "Turn power off and on again". Sometimes you don't get the "Access" and it will go straight into the "Power off and on again" screen. Tried this - no good. Changed batteries for fully charged brand new 2700mAh NIMH - 1.2V Uniross - still no good ! Any advice would be appreciated. Regards

When this was discovered, the machine was switched off, and then back on again to capture video, at this point, the camera switched itself off. I thought it had just run out of battery power, but later found out that it would not switch on with a new battery, or with the mains adapter.
