Kodak CX6330 Power flash

I have a Kodak CX6330 and sometimes when I turn it on, it looks dead and doesn't turn on. A red light flashes instead of the normal green indicator next to the viewfinder. When I put the button back into its place and then try switching it on again, sometimes it turns on but sometimes it doesn't. It can't be a battery problem because I tried a freshly charges NiMH battery. The NiMH is compatible with the cam and has worked before. Can you tell me what to do as it happens only sometimes and I will look like an idiot if I try to show it to a repair shop/center whatever.
Thank You
Good Bye

I had a similar experience.

My Kodak z760 did the same. I thought about what it was doing and after it successfully powered up took a clean soft cloth to the lens barrel that extends on power up after it was fully extended. The problem vanished.

ithink you are right..

A few times when I looked at the lense by chance, it looked quite dirty, so I think you are right and that is the problem going on. Now how do I clean it? What will I require to do it?

Sorry.

I described what I did. If that was not enough, seek out a camera shop to do the deed.

Something Else

Don't assume that your NiMH batteries are not the problem.

They do go bad.
If just one goes bad, it can give you the symptoms you described.

If you have a volt meter. Check the voltage of each battery.
It should be 1.2 volts.

If you don't have a volt meter.
You will need to spend a few dollars to make sure the batteries are not the problem.

Do one of the following before you declare the camera broken:

Buy and install new Alkaline batteries
or
Buy new replacement NiMH batteries, charge them and install.

Batteries are OK

In reply to: Something Else

My NiMH batteries are OK because they are brand new and freshly charged. And this problem has occurred with other batteries as well. The batteries work perfectly with other devices.
Thanks
