Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Kodak Easyshare Z712 IS Zoom Digital Camera will not power on. I tried new Lithium batteries and the AC adapter and still nothing.

Answers :

Make sure the battery contacts inside the camera are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). Also, measure the new batteries' voltage to ensure they're charged and good.
\015\012The following web blog talks about the things you can try to get the camera working again:
\015\012There are contacts inside the camera that can get slightly oxidized in time, and a moderate bump of the camera while pressing the on button can sometimes make the internal contact conduct.
\015\012Some of the switches in digital cameras are cleanable, and some are not. You can try to open the camera and clean them, but some are sealed switches, and there's nothing you can do other than replace them. You can get parts off "as is" cameras with different problems on Ebay, if you're good at that sort of swapping.
\015\012Otherwise, you will have to have it serviced. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can justify buying a new one. Take it by a local camera repair shop, or contact Kodac for an estimate:
\015\012This Kodak website advertises free support on google, so perhaps it would be worth a try:
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.

This is a common problem. As you have already tried using another set of batteries and adopter, the next step would be to connect the camera to your computer via USB and see whether there is any response or not.If the camera would still not offer any response, that would confirm an internal problem. More often it is either damaged/broken wire or a problem with the main board. You could also try to clean the battery connectors with a cleaning solution as sometimes dust and dirt would cause the same. If not, there could be 2 options, either you need to open and check for any loose or damaged connection or wire and check the board and repair it or you need to send the unit for repair. Be advised on most occasions, due to the cost of the repair, it might be a wise option to invest in new camera. So, even if you decide to send the camera to Kodak, you could ask for a quote for the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

I have tried replacing the batteries with brand new ones..still nothing. I've tried to batteries and everything.What is going on and what can I do to fix it? Is it fixable?

Several days ago I accidently left my camcorder in the "on" position. When I tried to turn it on yesterday it would not power up, so I changed to a charged battery, but still no power. I tried the AC adapter, but still no power. I tried reset, but nothing. I cannot get the camera to power up.

My Kodak EasyShare C180 Digital camera, came with "Kodak" batteries after those died, I inserted new batteries, and now everytime I try to turn the camera on, it doesn't respond.

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged

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.
