It only works with a USB cord plugged in

My Kodak easy share c183 will only work if I have a USB cord plugged into it

Update (06/08/2016)

I have tried new batteries and different kinds of batteries. And the inside the battery compartment is clean and shinny

Have you tried replacing the batteries? Also, do the contacts in the battery compartment look nice and shiny or is their white or green junk inside?


Yeah it's odd I have never seen it before I was gonna send it in to Kodak and see what is wrong with it and I hear they went out of business so I have no idea what to do.

Then I suspect the battery holder wire has come loose on the other side of the battery chamber. Heres a good image of the inside of the chamber: Battery case. In fact you can see the contact on the left is green with corrosion.

Follow this IFIXIT guide to Step3 to gain access to the contacts: Kodak Easyshare C183 Lens Assembly Replacement. If you can get the batteries to stay in you should be able to use a DVM to measure the voltage at the contacts to verify the contacts are OK.

Oh ok I will look at that but the other end of the USB cord don't have to be plugged into anything as long as a USB cord is in the USB port it will show on the screen if the cord isn't plugged in all it does is a black screen you can take pictures but can't see them til the cord is plugged in


mmm .... That does add a wrinkle here ;-{

So just having the cable plugged in into the camera alone alters things so that nix's the battery case issue.


I would take a magnifier and inspect the USB socket to see if the pins are damaged (shorting). Also try a different USB cable does that make a difference?
