hey there, my kodak easyshare p850 won't turn on anymore, and i can't get the pics that are on it, off....

for normal power up, after you switch cam on, a motor drives the lense out, and you are good to go....  currently,when i power the cam on, i can hear a sound that could be a motor trying to move the lense, but it cuts out quick, the lense does not move at all and that's that....

point being, the cam seems to be getting some power and i charged the battery.... anyone know anything about jump starting one of these things?

if so, love to hear it... in the mean time, i will be googleing to see what i can find out...

thanks in advance for any help you might have...

one of the cells in the battery may be bad (too weak to power the lens motor)

If you know someone that has the same camera and could borrow the battery ...

otherwise they are available for under $10 (mail-order)

Have you tried the Camera with the (optional) AC adaoter ?

Just FYI with the older and some newer NiCad batteries which were becoming popular before the Lithium batteries, they would only put out a cell voltage of 1.3vdc instead of 1.5vdc this would cause the camera to think the batteries were dead if you let them rest any length of time after recharge. This is witnessed by me first hand as I owned a Kodak that had this very problem ***this is only the case with cameras with replaceable batteries such as "AA" not rechargeable packs.***

Any camera that doesn't have a "hard" ON/OFF switch can drain any battery
because it's always checking the "soft" ON/OFF switch through software.
