Kodak Battery Problems

by Creol_Buay / August 23, 2006 3:26 PM PDT

I have a Kodak EasyShare CX6230 that I bought for my wife about a year ago. Everything works fine except that I can't get the kodak battery or any other batteries for that matter to power it up. I have left it plugged in for several days to see if the kodak battery would charge,but nothing. I called kodak and they said they can't figure it out, took it to a camera store and they can't figure it out either. Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance to whomever replies.

If the lens cap is in place it may detect a jam and not power up. It will however light up and then power off.

You didn't offer such a detail but maybe by me telling you this you'll notice it.

Kodak CX6230

That camera was introduced over three years ago, and went out of production about two years ago.
Since you bought it a year ago, I can't help but wonder where it has been all this time.

Anyway.....Buy some new Alkaline AA batteries and try them in the camera. They have more voltage than the rechargeable NiMH AA batteries. They should provide more power (for a short time). If that works, let us know.

If that does not work, don't consider having it repaired. A 2 megapixel camera has little value these days.

Actually I tried the alkaline batteries and it does not work as well the camera does not have a lens cap. Forgot to mention that when I plug it to the base it starts up fine, I can browse the memory, print, download to my pc and all the other stuff it usually does.

I guess I'm stuck and have to replace it with a new one.

They had left some batteries in it and they leaked. The contacts had that battery poo on the surface so some cleanup was needed.

I can't see your camera's contacts but share the story.
