Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera ?
Camera and computer won't connect
\015 I plug in the USB cable and turn the camera on. The first time this worked fine and I was able to put the pictures on the computer. The second time and ever since, instead of connecting to the computer the camera blinks the green light (the one centered directly over the screen on the back) and the LCD stays dark - almost like it's looking for something and can't find it. I have pictures in the hard memory and also an SDHC card, have tried it both with the card in and with it out, same deal......\015
